What better way to start off Thanksgiving Day 2016  then with a Thankful Thursday Edition?  I hope everyone is having a wonderful and safe holiday!

I am really thankful for my siblings.  They both try to encourage me to be the best that I can so that I can feel good about myself and to understand what the consequences of our actions are.  They may lose patience with me and they have to reevaluate what they have to do change how they interact.  I enjoy my times  with each of them and if I can learn from them than that’s the best.

I just sent e cards to my immediate family this could be fun to do when I start the Christmas cards tomorrow. :)

I am thankful for my neighbors as the young ones are taking care of my precious little kitties.  I know Shea had to work at least part of this holiday weekend and I do hope she gets to enjoy some friends and family time.  It is never fun to be alone on holidays.  Even though some seem to enjoy it.

I am thankful for my beautiful kitties that I have had in my love nearly two years now.  It seems longer though.  I really miss them and hope they are doing well.  They probably are enjoying their vacation and are doing what they normally do.

I am so loving the MyfitnessPal site that my Health coach told me about.  I am so enjoying using and it's pretty easy.  I am can see how much I have eaten how much I shouldn’t be eating and it’s a good tool to help with the weight loss.

I happy to announce the Apple Pies garnered $200 in fundraising and I am not sure what the dog treats raised.  You see my sister had me erase all the emails that were probably draining the power of the phone and the computers.  I am hoping that when I get home and look through outlook I will still have them.  We  had to move our holiday meeting to December 12 so the girls who have holiday concerts and other things can attend them.  This year the gift limit has been raised to $15.  I think is great because I could never decide what nice gift to get for $10.

I am looking forward to hearing the reports of the Ladies guild Auction on December 13.  It is the night of our holiday party as well. That will be our last meeting of the year until March of 2017.  We won’t be having meetings during the months of Jan or February due to the weather.

I am thankful the weather held nicely for the drive down and my expectation for the drive home is to find it raining.  However because so many states are dealing with drought conditions that  I won’t mind it.  My hope is we get a lot of snow or rain in the months ahead to make up for the loss we did have.  It probably won’t happen but that’s my wish this week.

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 …
