9              I am thankful for my kitties.
I had a great time despite the fact my sister didn’t believe me rearranging furniture in my house over the weekend.  Several times she threatened to beat with If I said It was fun.  It actually was tiring but now I have a new living room.
My brother came up for an overnight and we had fun as well.  We managed to have lunch together and some moments for chatting.  He will be up in May for the scholarship.
My friends Mama and Papa R are enjoying their vacation and will be returning next week to begin their final move to NC.  We are supposed to get together with the club for a farewell picnic.  I am not sure what date it is now.
I am getting together with my friend Dave this weekend.  We are going to Starbuck’s on Saturday for coffee.  I hadn’t talked to him for a few weeks.  It was time to get together.
The kitties are behaving around the new furniture.  I did see Tiger “knead” one of the couches but I shooed her away and put the repellent on the furniture again.
I didn’t go to the Monthly General DTC yesterday. I was too tired.  I know pretty much what’s going on anyway since we discuss it at the 4th.
Woman’s club is making plans for the picnic but we are still trying to get the date.  It looks like it will be during the week.

World Record

I think I broke the World record for shopping.I managed to spend 45 minutes and not break the budget for grocery shopping.I was home before 8 am.I started doing some cooking the chicken breasts should be done in another ten minutes.I have more to make.I am going to make sauce now.
I don’t think I have ever been in a store so early in the morning.There wasn’t a lot of people there at 7:15 in the morning on a Sunday.I may do that again some time.I did get a few things not on the list but still needed.Of course there was one thing I didn’t get.
Well now the chicken strips are done I tried a couple and wrapped the rest for snacks later.I have sauce going and later on I might do the roast again the right way this time.I finally decided to bring up a tray table from downstairs to put the laptop on it made it much easier on the counters.I was certain I would have to say up late but by 5:30 I was making pizza with some of the sauce and cooling the rest in a container with plastic bag.
The rain b…

Another Explosion

There was an explosion at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York this morning.  An alert popped up in my email and began the details.  They are uncertain of the origin of the explosion but evacuated a few of the subway lines.  IT's about 20 minutes East of where DIane and Rogier live (if I know my directions).    I sometimes wonder if she could feel it or see it from where she was.  I guess it’s like here.  YOu can’t always hear noises on the other side of town.
ON the upside Today is Diane and Rogier's Third Wedding anniversary!  Did I send them anything? Nope.  Do I ever? Nope.  Unless you count  FB messages!
Work is fine.  Spent the morning scanning and the rest of the day doing mail.  The couriers redeemed themselves in my eyes.  They got here by 12.  Had the normal volume of mail.  I finished by 3.  The last hour consisted of readdress mail.
Today must have been bring in food day because there is chili in one aisle and lasagna in another and I turned down both!  Only be…

Snowy Monday

I had hoped to have  missed the snow they were predicting overnight and into today.  Unfortunately it started flurrying when I hit the city. Great. I didn’t bring my boots today.  There are snow showers predicted for Milford this morning and apparently for the city. Lovely we are getting another Nor’easter come Wednesday.  

There is one thing that I forgot to mention.  A strip mall had some damage during the storm friday and I just found out that it was the strip mall by my house.  I didn’t even make the connection until a coworker said something to me this morning.  I hadn’t recognized the names or the background pictures. I thought it was in another part of town.

Work went well.  The healthlogic came early so I jumped on that as soon as I could.  It was pretty quiet for Monday. Could have been the weather or could have been weekend activities.  I had fried proscuitto, baby arugula, melted provolone, baby arugula & tomato with roasted garlic aioli on toasted sourdough for lun…
