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.

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 …
