Monday Musings

It was a beautiful morning.  Sun was shining and chilly.  I had a pretty good sleep last night on the CPAP.  I still woke up around three for my bathroom run.  By then the kitties were gone and didn’t come back until they figured it was time for me to get up.

I did get our routine going and that included me laying on the couch for a good half hour.  That’s when I got up and started getting ready for work.  I did make some time to finish my entries from last night and get them posted.  I did manage get to dressed  and out the door earlier than usual and was able to go the same route I took Friday morning with much better results.  I got here ten minutes early.

A number of people discussed the supermoon around here and it was great to hear the different stories.  We get to do it again tonight.  I may try and get it at the big one instead of the one I got last night.

I have a confession to make.  I have been trying really hard not to think about the next two weeks.  As we all know I have a bad habit of procrastinating until the last moment.  I have so much to do between work, ladies guild, family, and health obligations, the woman’s club activities this weekend.  I am not sure when I am going to get the non baking activity done this weekend.   

I am hope I can get it all done.  I am just going to have to put my big girl panties on and go ahead.  Right now though I am cooking the chicken wings.  I made some extra  sauce but as usual I put too much of one ingredient over another.  I ate all the wings.  I cooked them first for 20 minutes and then put the sauce on for ten more minutes.  They turned out pretty good..

Just around 7 I cleaned up the kitchen, already had some laundry in the washing machine and came upstairs.  I watched a few shows.  The TV has been acting wonky over the last few days it seems.  Almost every other channel is pixelating and crapping out.  I don’t know if it is the cable system or the TV going out again.  The kitties stayed with me for awhile and then got to running around and are just now coming back. Tp the bed.

I was saddened to learn that Journalist and PBS Newshour Anchor Gwen Ifill died earlier today from her fight with cancer.  The first I heard about it was on ABC News. David Muir announced it in the newscast and he looked sad.  I am not sure if the other major networks announced it (I am sure they did)  PBS Newshour spent a good 45 minutes on the life and career of Ms Ifill.  The FB page for the program is filled with  condolences and memorials.  This makes the 4th celebrity death in a row this week.

The other three included Leonard cohen (who sung the original “Hallelujah”), Actor Robert VAughn, and Leon Russell.  I just checked an article and there were more this year and people I didn’t recognize or didn’t hear about it.

Well the kitties have returned to the foot of the bed and it is getting late so I better say good night.

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 …
