Labor Day 2016


It is Labor Day once again.  The signal that summer is officially over and the fall season begins.  Schools are in session.  Fall sports begin.  Fall activities also start (don’t even get me started on how early the Halloween candy came out), festival season is in full swing, and the weather gets cooler.

This weekend was supposed to be Hermine but we haven’t gotten much-yet.  Many neighbors had scheduled big end of season parties and they had to change their plans and had much smaller parties.  New Haven has the annual Road race and it will go on as planned but with some modifications.  We may get something closer to Wednesday.  It will be a wait and see.

Yesterday afternoon I did the errands and volunteering.  I took about eighty cents worth of bottles back to be recycled, did the bingo, and got the clothes to the cleaners, and put the refund money from the CC Company into the bank.

When I got home I found the kitties sleeping and cuddling up on the guest room bed.  Of course as any dutiful crazy cat lady I had to share with the world.  About 12 people liked the picture…not sure if I posted it to the cat lovers group on Facebook.


The rest of the afternoon and evening I watched H&I’s specials honoring the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek and its Franchise.  These particular shows obviously were done many years ago because they were updated to include James Doohan and DeForest Kelley’s Death.   It didn’t include Leonard Nimoy’s passing (or I missed it).

I did some laundry (actually I have to go move it around soon) and then went to bed my normal time.  That’s when Sky moved himself from one bed to the other.  Don’t think Tiger was pleased.

I did have an interesting experience.  I was sitting out back in the chair that Mom spent many hours watching TV.  I was sitting there I could actually smell her.  It may have been a light perfume she wore.  It was really cool.  So I said a little prayer to her and to Dad.

Finally my Nephew Nelson is going to be running in the Star Wars Light Marathon in January 2017 to raise monies for the Kellsies Hope Foundation.  His page can be found here.  It would mean a lot to me if you could help out.

Moved Slowly

This is a definite slow day.  This morning did our regular routine for a Saturday.  The kitties have been fed, and have been let down into the cellar,  I cleaned out the litter boxes, and went back to sleep with the TV watching me...get the picture?
Peapod arrive just after 9:30.  I didn’t need to see them as Sky was running up the stairs.  The driver pulled into the neighbor’s (Hockey guy’s) driveway.  I asked her not to do it she explained it wouldn’t be for long and she figured it was mine.  I just shrugged my shoulders and resigned myself to the fact she will do it.   Please for the love of all that’s right next time listen to me.  BEsides there was plenty of room in front of the house!  I got every thing that I ordered and put it all away.  Another list is already started for next week.
The weather sites got it wrong again.  One of them said we were supposed to get rain this morning.  It was supposed to start sometime after 8:30.  Need I have to tell you it never came?  The sun fin…

REally Busy

I am so sorry I haven’t finished the weekend entries.  I just was too tired and Monday was busy.  I know I have my Florida adventures to write up but again.  Not enough time or energy lately.  
I am looking forward to next weekend as I am meeting up with Siduri and we are going to spend the day in the city and visit Peabody museum and have lunch.  On sunday is baby Giada’s Christening and I am really looking forward to that.  I haven’t met Giada yet but from the pictures her parents and grandparents post she is beautiful.
WE had some late night rain last night and early morning rain today.  We may have more as the week progresses but that’s okay.  Meteorologist Geoff Fox began his second week at his summer Gig at Channel 8 this week.  His first week went well even with some first time hiccups with the technology.  He is having a blast along with his colleagues and fans.
I received a letter from my pen pal Debi in Tampa and I did manage to read the whole letter in one sitting.  She is kee…

Sunday Objectives

As i was finishing up feeding the cats this morning I walked into the living room and found what looked like a hairball on the window sill that landed on the floor.  Ick  I don’t know why they have so many hairballs.  There is two more around the house.  Cleaned one up in the office upstairs the other day.
I let them downstairs already.  I actually am not sure if both went or just Sky.  I turned around after finishing cleaning up hairball number 2  and tiger was just sitting there.
My other objectives today would include laundry and church and of course bingo.  I know you are surprised about the church but it's time I go back.
Nothing is wrong but this is proactive.  I feel that when I don’t go to church for a long time my whole center seems off balance and things go wrong.  I want to prevent that from happening.  Considering I am also on the Ladies guild Board now.  I best do it.
I talked with Mama Roberta Friday night for an hour.  She told me about her trip to Colorado and how she …
