An Absolutely Gorgeous Afternoon

It was and still is as the sun is going down an absolutely beautiful afternoon.  I hardly needed my overcoat.  When I got home from fairly busy afternoon I threw up some windows.  From the front door to the back door and the kitchen windows.  The kitties were quite pleased.  They ran to the back door when they heard the door open.

The lunch “date” with Lawyer Bob was very nice.  We met at The Plate. A luncheonette restaurant that is in Milford.  It opened in its current location two years ago after the long standing Pops Diner moved to Old Gate Lane a couple of miles away.  The food is delicious.  I had lobster bisque and BBQ Shrimp BLT in a wrap.  IT was basically catching up with my life.  He also didn’t exactly hint but wanted me to start thinking about the future.  I did tell him about the attempted condo search we had started.  He reminded me that he needs to be the one sign the listing agreement since he has the keys if I ever go the route of getting a smaller place.  He also reminded me that any contracts need to be signed by him.  He did say he and his wife are making long term plans to move to Colorado.  Not sure when.  It all depends how much his wife misses their grandchild.  He will be calling Liz this week.

I had some time before going to the nursing home so I came home put a load of laundry in the machines and got online.  Getting online was a mistake as I became late.  I still had the girls waiting for me when I got there. I actually wasn’t late.

Bingo went well Erin wasn’t there but Sarah and my girls from the girls club was there.  They did a great job helping out.  A very sobering moment came when Bingo had just finished and we were transporting the residents back to the rooms.  We came face to face with a patient who had just passed away it was being transported to the morgue.   We literally had to go to a room with closed doors.  Over the years it has happened but it felt very weird seeing them being taken off the elevator.

Since I have been home I did some more laundry and have been watching my PBS shows.  I was very shocked to find out that the show Religion and Ethics News program that has been on PBS for over 20 years is ending next week.  I tried to research the reason and only found what the website Get Religion reported.  Apparently it has been in the works for the last year.  Reasons not given but I would hazard a guess that contributions in its name to PBS are strong possibility.  I have watched it over the years from time to time.  But for as long as I can remember Mom and I watched at dinner time and most Sunday or Saturday nights.

Well speaking of TV Dr. Blake is on and I want to see it.  Have a great night.

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…
