Veteran's Day 2016

To all those who reading, following this blog and are currently or formerly in the Military I send my thanks to you for dedication of service and to our protection of freedoms.

Many are taking today off.  Some schools have a holiday while others do not.  I am not sure what the rationale is behind that but here at the University we don’t have all the US holidays off.  That’s why we have the ten day recess in December.  So I have been told.  All the parades and services were earlier this week.  

I tried to take  another route to work this morning.  If I continue to take the same route I need to leave at least 15 minutes earlier than I did this morning.  I am tired of being frustrated with 95 (like everyone else is).  Luckily the traffic was lighter than usual but it could have been because of the holiday.

Today was quiet and I had done some mail and personal refunds all in the morning The afternoon consisted of readdress mail, and straightening up .  

Tonight I had spaghetti with wheat pasta very nice.  It didn’t fill me but I had enough that I don’t want anymore tonight.  I was going to make the meatloaf but I need to review the ingredients.  I actually have to get a few more things so i will do it tomorrow.

I have finally been getting a few calls about the auction.  A couple of people wanted to donate stuff and so I just made arrangements to meet someone tomorrow to pick it up and I will have to take to Janet's house but she told me on the phone tonight that after this we can’t accept anymore.  It is very early meet so I will be getting ready for bed soon.  I did actually get a couple of people to want tickets.

Well i am going to have say good night as i am getting tired.  Be well everyone.

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 …
