A long eventul day


I just wanted to catch everyone up before I crash for the night.  Today was the “coffee and “event at church today and It went exceedingly well.  I managed to sell more tickets before leaving there this afternoon.  Even with the time change I made it then in good time (ten minutes before the mass was to start) .  As I went into the vestibule I met up with Liz and Nelson and we sat together.  I had sent her a message to get up but she didn’t reply.  It probably would have been some smart ass remark.   I was quite surprised at the number of people who attended the mass at that hour of the morning.  However they didn’t come to the coffee.  As the morning progressed though it was a different story.  It was almost quarter of 1 by the time I left.

My hope was to go home get some sort of lunch but by the time I got home it wasn’t to be.  I had enough time to check on the kitties who left me a gift in the back and then turn around to go out to Derby for the Veteran’s Day event at the nursing home.  There were a lot of girls including the international students.  We may have a couple more new members for the girls club.  The activity didn’t begin until after 2 but it went very well.  The girls all did their parts exceedingly well even if they were shy about doing it.  WE had found there was an accident on the route I would have taken back home so I took a drive to Shelton and ended up by Sikorsky factory.  I had planned on going to the grocery store but forgot I don’t have my stop and shop card any more.  So I stopped and got the kitty litter instead.  I was home by 4.

When I got home Sky was waiting for me on the couch and Tiger had been under the recliner until 6.  I decided to relax and then get dinner (left over spaghetti).  I fell asleep for a bit.  Then I got up and began to do some chores.  I cleaned up the hairball, emptied the dishwasher and cleaned out the litter box, did some laundry and folded clothes.  All before 8.  I spent some time with Tiger on the cough and she was very cuddly.  Sky came down from upstairs and they both wanted attention. 

Around 8 I headed upstairs.  I had done all that I wanted to do before going to bed.  Sky came first and then I heard Tiger meowing so I went down and after 20 minutes of trying to get it to come to sort of corner her on the couch picked her up and walked her upstairs.  She cuddled next to my legs for a bit and then sky came back to the bed.  I am not sure how that happened but he cuddled with me and then went to cuddle and fall asleep next to his sister (and that’s where they are now).  I am not sure how long they will be there.  Especially with the time change. 

I am quite surprised that I have somehow gotten my second wind.  Although it is fading fast as I am growing tired again.  I still have so much to accomplish but it will have to wait.

Monday is a regular work day but not major plans after work except bookkeeping and grocery shopping.  I have been putting off the book keeping again but I have also put off the grocery shopping because of the book keeping. 

Tuesday of course is Election and I am going to try and vote in the morning because I need to be at headquarters after work,  I usually sign up to be one of the many greeters at the polls but I just didn’t do that this year. I hope all of our local candidate win their campaigns.  I will be so happy when this election is over though.  But will it really be over? 

Wednesday I have couple of meetings and a dentist appointment.  Then I get ready for the following weekend.

Thursday quiet

Friday will be Veteran’s day and probably light mail volume so it will be mostly refund checks.  Quiet end to the week no doubt. 

Saturday I have no plans.

Sunday My regular Sunday with a visit to Preston and Vlad.  I really enjoyed my visit with Vlad last week so I don’t expect problems with him at all.  My hope is there won’t be any major problems with Preston.

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 …
