The Storm came

The storm came just after 6.  How is it that everyone else but me knows it's coming tonight?? The weatherman says that the tides will be a little higher than usual tonight.  They looked like it when I left the house this morning.  The wind was picking up as I went to the Credit Union this evening.

I was concerned for my family and friends in GA where tornadoes hit the southern part of the state.  Not really knowing how far south my family was I sent them a message and so far Cousin Bill answered they are fine.

I was also checking the weather in Brandon.  It was supposed to have started raining before 11 and the funeral was supposed to be held at 12.  I sent a message just before dinner and she said they were at the hotel.  The services and the whole day was lovely.  BIL was slept the entire afternoon.

This morning was the regular routine.  Everyone was happy when I left.  I left the TV on upstairs for them.  I knew I was going to be  little late tonight and as I figured they were waiting for me by the door.   They did seem a little agitated once the storm started but now they are lying down somewhere.  I was a bit concerned because tiger was lying under the bed and seemed off.  It didn’t last long.  She did get a little playful.  

I even left before 7:30 this morning and found the traffic to be unusually light for a Monday.  It most definitely could have been the time i came through.  I am not sure what the highway was like but the side roads were indeed heavy.

Work seemed fairly quiet I spent most of the morning working on refunds and in the afternoon did the mail.  Supervisor was still out from his long weekend and will be back tomorrow.  I understand he got back during the weekend (from his brother).

Tonight I made the pork roast with lots of garlic and Mrs Dash seasonings.  I cooked it for an hour at 350.  I had about five slices and it was delicious.  I was going to have salad with it but the salad didn’t look fresh.

I had to pay a couple more bills (the dental bill and the Oil delivery from last week).  I almost forgot about the oil.  So I believe all the bills are paid or ready to be paid.  Now I can rest easily.  

I actually have to clean the kitchen up so I am going to say good night.  I hope you are all well.

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…
