Monday Musings

When I got up this morning I never expected to see a fox in my back yard but I did.  It was just at daybreak.  A skunk had been foraging near the back door since six this morning and just as the daylight started I caught the tail end of the fox and so I got up from my chair and watched him face the skunk and then as he started to walk away he turned to look at me and headed to the back of the yard.  I ran to my computer and posted it to Facebook.  Kim across the street and I have been chatting about it.  Apparently Mr. Fox has been spending time across the street at our neighbors.  I sent text messages to as many people I could think of that would be interested.  I noticed a few people had seen my post and liked it.  Including Married Woman Vanessa who has had bear encounters in her back yard.  It also looks like there have been grey foxes spotted about a mile away for the last three weeks according to my classmate BH.

When I got to work I shared the info with many who didn’t get to see the post talked about seeing their own foxes and coyote sightings.  I had gotten text messages from Jim questioning the validity of my claim and even Liz posted an info that they are red.  I found the grey fox info and mailed it to them. So there!

It was pretty busy this morning working on the refunds and in the afternoon the mail.  I saw large piles of insurance refunds on the table that I can expect to get when they have been notated.  Guardian Angel has been really helpful.  WE got a lot send out I think. 

We have a new project manager but I don’t her name because she wasn’t introduced to all the others but a select few.  I guess I am just going to have to go and introduce myself like I have to a number of people over the years.

The University will be celebrating Founders day this week.  There have been a number of activities for that day including:  Tours of the various architectural buildings, Museums, galleries, and many other things.  The rest of the events can be found at the link above. 

I haven’t heard from the professional photographer about the schedule for my photo shoot.  If I don’t hear from them by the end of the month I will contact HR and find out what to do next.  At least this will allow me to get a few new outfits before the photo shoot.

Finally we said goodbye to Diane G.  Today was her last day at Yale Medicine and she will be retiring permanently.  She had left several years ago to start a new life but it wasn’t to her liking so now she wants to try Florida again (actually I think she likes Florida just certain aspects she doesn’t).  It was very emotional.  The cake was chocolate with raspberry filling. 

I found out that volunteers are needed for Hillary’s Campaign phone banking this month.  Tuesdays and Thursdays this month.  It will be at my friend M&T’s company.  I am entertaining the thought of doing it but I also have to finish the canvassing for Senator Slossberg’s campaign.  I know I won’t be able to do phone banking next week for the campaign because I have the Ladies Guild.

I am current with the minutes for the 4th District so I just have to await Chairman Phil’s email alert as to where it will be.  Brad is hoping we will have our district meetings at Campaign headquarters and do phone banking (it would be nice if that all was resolved-it didn’t seem to be when I was there on Sunday).  Our regular Town committee meeting is on the 27th.  I best make a point to attend because I didn’t last month.

Tomorrow night is the Ladies Guild Board meeting.  I won’t find out what was discussed until our general meeting next week.  I have already written up the notes from last month’s GM and I am looking forward to continuing it this month.  I am not sure but I am pretty sure we will find out how the bake sale went.  Then we will discuss the auction in November.  We will be hosting a Coffee and… after all the masses in early November. 

Aside from my session with Debra and a little canvassing the rest of the week should be fairly quiet.  I am waiting until then to perhaps do some grocery shopping and clothes shopping.  I am getting my hair cut on Saturday.

 Among the birthdays today is my very awesome Great Niece Audrey who lives in South Carolina.  She is probably 11 going on 40 and the apple of my sister’s eye.  I am afraid I will have to send a belated birthday card with money.  It was also my friend Donna K N’s birthday.  Her husband and I are on the DTC together.  Actually I don’t know if he is or not.  I got an email indicating that several people are no longer on the committee.

Most importantly I would like to wish all my f-list and readers a Happy Rosh Hashanah.  May you have many blessings in the coming year!

Well I have a bathroom to clean…sigh.  I hate litterboxes.

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 …
