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.

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 …
