Mid Week Reflection

The end of last week brought visits to old friends and volunteering.  On Saturday I spent time my friend Nancy and her family as we discussed upcoming pet sitting gigs.  I was with them until maybe 11 and then I went to my sisters to spend some Sister time with her.  By the time I got home i wanted to do nothing in order to prepare for the longest Sunday I think i have had in awhile.

Sunday was spent at church all morning.  I went to the first mass and then after that from 7:45 until quarter of 1 we had coffee and after all the masses and sold tickets to our Auction and Christmas party raffle.  We had sold at least $300 worth of tickets.  That afternoon was the Veteran’s Day Salute at the Nursing Home in Derby CT.  It was great and an hour long and we were done by 4 and I was home by 5.

Of course we just came off of a shocking Election.  I worked for most of it.  I voted early in the morning and it didn’t take long but it was packed.  After work I did some poll standing with the candidates including State Rep G Slossberg and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro.  It was good to spend time with them.  I hadn’t a real opportunity to speak to Congresswoman DeLauro since Mom’s death.  Eventually it was time for me to go to the Headquarters and I stayed til the end.  I tried several times to leave early but it helped when I started to feel sick.  I had food that didn’t agree with me (what else is new?).  

I heard from my Cousin who was running for DA in Texas and unfortunately she lost her bid for election.  

On a non-political event I received my long term service “certificate” I posted it to my facebook page and had lot of responses that I still have to respond back.  I was also given a link to choose my new gift.

Today I wasn’t really feeling great still I worked until 10:30 and then headed home. When I got home i showered and got comfortable and rested (and watched TV) fell asleep after doing some laundry.  I did manage to have a sandwich and soup.  The kitties have been sleeping with me for the afternoon.  However something tells me they will be getting up soon and go crazy.  

I decided to stay home tonight from everything including a dentist appointment and the woman’s club meeting.  I am just so tired  my ankle is not giving me any problems like it has all day (and anytime I walk) it really hurts and I have no idea what it is (some form of tendonitis i think).

Tiger is currently at the end of the bed and looks like she is doing a karate move.  Whup she moved out of my line of sight.  Now she up and left.  Sky followed and is off somewhere.  Tiger followed me downstairs when I needed to check some stuff.

The rest of the week should be quiet.  My hope is to relax and do some cooking.  I got some ingredients to make the chicken and the meatloaf.  I also would like to get some letters written.

Sunday after I have some things to do and then next week its pretty busy and getting closer to the holiday.

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 …
