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.

Wow it got cold fast

It dropped at least 10 degrees in a day or so.Yesterday I was being blown down the street while walking and today I have bundled up more.I heard we may get snow flurries tonight.Just as we are expecting the snow flurries the CPTV is rebroadcasting the documentary Blizzard of 78.
I had a good session with Debra.Talked about the events of the last couple of weeks and she is confident that I will be smart about the “Meetups”.She also recommended to not discuss it with Sis.We will meet next week regular time.
I did talk to Liz via text after I had received an invitation to my Niece’s baby sprinkle.(That’s what they are calling it cute huh?)Tentative plans are to go together.It will be later on this month.A week after Cheryl’s party.I am thinking it’s time for another outfit.I need to make time to get a gift for both parties.
I can say with relief that my traffic ticket I got last week was paid in full.They got it within the last couple of days.Bills are paid.
Work was fine we had a staff meet…

Yay Friday

I am so glad today is Friday.I woke up early again but stayed in bed for a bit.I didn’t lay down again after feeding the cats today.I did a little straightening up here and there.
I got a message from Livia last night letting me know I dated the check wrong and wanted a fresh one.I left another one with today’s date on it.I am just not sure when she is coming over.I didn’t want the house to look messed up after all the work she did.
The ride in was a bit anxiety filled.Several times I thought I was going to plow into the back of several cars.I wasn’t speeding but the cars in front of me didn’t seem to move.I was glad to get to the garage and then to the office.
In the morning I did some refunds and then spent time working on the readdress mail.It was about that time my guardian angel suggested I needed to do them (No kidding) and then as the afternoon progressed.She asked me to write up all that needs to be done because SR was upset that both of us were taking the beginning of next month…

i waited

I had been waiting since 10 to hear from AH my Easter Dinner host about dropping off the main dish to store in my refrigerator overnight.I was expecting her to call before coming. Well she called me around 4:30 to let me know that she didn’t need to come over she had managed to clean her own refrigerator.I had things that I wanted to do.
Liz ended up coming here for coffee and we got caught up with family news for the next hour.She brought me a choc bunny and flowers, and some sweets for breakfast and or desserts.She had mocked horror when I told her how the kitties were able to go in to a closet.She told me what was going on with her SIL in Waterbury and how this and the ride up to Waterbury was a bit much for Nelson.
I have been doing a few things here and there.Like folding clothes, doing the dishes, and very shortly cleaning up the bathroom-again.Earlier had the TV on and did some net browsing.
Oh and around 10 am this morning April the Giraffe finally had her baby.I can’t believe I …
