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.

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 …

I swear

I swear every time I go to do my taxes.I have issues whether it is internet connections, firewalls, or I have problems with my passwords.I started to get it set up around 8 and ended up using and I still have to fix it.Didn’t put info in that is needed.Will have to do it soon.
So Easter at my friend’s house.I have mixed feelings about it.It was a little hectic and awkward for me.The food phenomenal.The behavior of some really rude.I was asked to set the table yet this one woman who has only been here (in the country) five years doesn’t move.I didn’t want to wait for her to finish cutting something that could have been done in the kitchen.A few people spoke in Greek and when they know how to speak English whether it is limited or not.Everyone left me at the table with the old Greek lady who barely spoke English.I really didn’t appreciate it.The hostess interrupts her daughter while the daughter is speaking and doesn’t say excuse me.I let Roberta know when we were leavin…
