Busy Afternoons Again


The shopping trip for shoes was delayed by a couple of hours when I had gotten a text from Liz apologizing for delaying but she was tired and needed more rest.  This allowed me to do a few things as well as chill for a bit.

When she picked me up I was ready to go and the first place we went was to Hawley Lane shoes where “Ellen” the salesman started helping us with the shoe selection.  Within an hour I had two pairs of new shoes and the offer to fix another pair of mine that is not helping me much.  I just now have to find it.  Both of them were $129.  They do look better than my current sneakers and pretty much go with everything. After that shop and buy my sister thought we should try DSW.  I usually claim that I can’t find anything in my size.  I was proven wrong yesterday.  I now have a new pair of Ryka walking shoes.  Blue and Purple they are comfortable.  I haven’t heard the name before but I will look it up later.

After the shoe shopping I was done.  We had just one more stop to make and it was at the Petco Adoption event so that my sister could see the dogs that drove from Athens Georgia. AT least I thought it was.  I tried looking the organization up but I haven’t been able to find them online and that really concerns me.  First of all I am pretty sure there are many “local rescues and organizations that need help in adoption of these wonderful yet loud dogs.  I am not sure how long we stayed but I think it was two by the time I got home.

I was so tired and hungry that I was grazing in the bacon, frozen dinners, and ended up sleeping the couch while watching TV.   That lasted about two hours and then I went to the store and got some dinner.  Didn’t eat it all but it will be left overs tonight.

Cleaned up a little here and there and then went upstairs to curl up and watch TV and cuddle with Mr. Sky.  I eventually fell asleep early.

This morning I stayed in bed until 6 and got up and did our regular routine.  I put the TV on in the living room. Half expecting to hear nothing but the speakers are working.  Now I can have my meals in there again.  I actually don’t know how long this is going to last.  Two days going strong.

After a while I came back upstairs to finish the letter to Mary in Australia.  I watched TV and did some surfing on the net.

Late in the morning I got ready for the woman’s club cancer awareness bracelet sale at Stop and Shop and took off for that.  I spent 2 hours there.  It was very windy compared to the weeks ago first sale.  The girls were great there were several this time.  They reacted to some of the people who walked ignored them and didn’t contribute.  They also discussed what changes could be made in the future.  If they only knew.

When I left the store I came back to the house and finished the sausage and peppers from last night. IT wasn’t a lot but I tried to drink water so hopefully it helped.  I got back on line until it was time for me to take off for bingo.



I was a little late for bingo but Bob was there getting people from the floors.  We had close to twenty people and we played until 3.  Aside from a woman in the recreation room yelling “help” it went very well.  Several of the residents won multiple times.  I made sure the list of gifts from the club were left for Natalie.  Even before Bob put it down he said there were definitely two things we couldn’t give them.  Nail polish remover, the Shaving cream and shavers. 

After bingo I went to Stop and Shop and went grocery shopping.  It took me about an hour and 20 minutes (I always am curious to see how long it takes me) and I spent about $108.  I got some canned stuff (fruit), salads, a few meats, and stuff for work, some extra things I really didn’t need but have had already.  There are some things I still need (mostly for the Cannoli Cheesecake.

It was nearly 4:30 as I said so I came home and put away the groceries and relaxed in front of the TV until 5:30 when I had the ribs from last night.  After a while I put that away and started some laundry and finished watching TV for a while.

I decided to come upstairs and surf the net and do some book work while Sky is sleeping at my feet.  Twice I have accidently kicked him with my foot.  I am about ready to fall asleep but I can’t. Not until my laundry has moved along and a few more things are done.

I have noticed the kitties have been taking turns sleeping in the swivel office chair in the study this weekend.  Friday afternoon/evening Sky was in it and then Saturday Tiger was while I was shoe shopping.  Sky got it today while Tiger was splitting time between the back room and the couch.

One of the things that I got done tonight is some wardrobe shopping from some of the online catalogs.  I wanted to get a few outfits for work.  Mostly pants and tops and a few skirt ensembles.  May be a few dresses but I don’t like wearing them much during the fall and winter.  I went to Jessica London and ordered two pant suits and both came to argand total of $75 and change and should be here in about a week.

I can’t keep my eyes opened anymore.  I am so tired like I said to Summer on her live video feed.  She has her own pen pal group on Facebook and so she was going over the mail she got and what was going in her life.  She had been caught in the last hurricane.

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 …
