Saturday Doings


Today is going to be a lazy day for me.  I have stuff to do such as cleaning the bathroom and the laundry again.  I have to rewrap the chickens and the steaks I bought last night.  But my neck and shoulder hurts right now.  It’s the same problem I have had a few times a year.  I turn my head and neck and it feels like a massive pinch.  It hurts if I move it quickly or just a slightly.  I want to say it’s the way I slept on it but it could be anything.  I took the meds for it so hopefully they will kick.

I had a great time with Liz and Nelson last night.  We had steak and salad.  We chatted about family stuff catching up with those we haven’t heard from except through Facebook like our sister-in-law.  I asked her about the furnace stuff, and told her about the pet sitting gig.

Today is the Closer to Free Ride sponsored by the Smilow Cancer Center at Yale.   It is a fundraiser that started a few years back to raise funds for Cancer research at the Smilow Center.  IF you go to YouTube and search for Flash mob for Closer to Free and see the most awesome video done in the Union station in New Haven.  Anyway the cyclists can pick four different routes through the New Haven area.  It is much like the Folks on Spokes organization as well.  Oh yes it is a takeoff from the song Closer to Free from the group BoDeans Group in 1993.  It makes me cry every time I see it.  There are also other BTS videos on how it was done.  I have a couple of friends in the ride.   I hope the weather holds out for them.

It was so humid last night I put the fans back on and almost put the AC on and slept in the guest room.  It’s a little better now but it could be worse later.   It is about mid 70’s right now and could go up to mid-80 and cloudy.  I really would like it to rain but that’s between me, you and the wall.

BBC-America is still airing the Original Star Trek marathon today.  It may be the only thing I am watching.  I also know there will be much on the 9-11 anniversary.  I don’t know if I could really relive that.

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 …
