I got my snow day


Well I got my snow day.   It started sometime after 5.  I didn’t think it was snowing at all but once I took a second look it was coming down pretty hard.  Been in touch with my FB friends and commented that it hadn’t started.  I recanted.  By the end of day it stopped but very windy.  In some parts of the state power was out and was expected according to the news reports this morning.

I have been in contact with Siblings.  J went to work while L snuggled in her PJ’s and doing some cleaning.  Something I will have done by the time I post this.  I took my time with it.

While I was watching TV today I noticed that we are getting a new channel (one of the CNN channels was moved to a higher number about a week ago) it would explain why we lost NECN it’s supposed to be a 24 hour news channel.  Not sure why when we have CNN.

As of February 20 Esquire channel will be going off the air.  I knew this because of discussions on IMDB and few other forums.  Not sure what will be going on that channel designation.  I am hoping it’s some of the channels that other providers offer or other packages from Optimum.  It would explain why Stratford gets the CBS stations and we don’t.

Neighbor Don has done an awesome job at getting my sidewalks cleared.  Will have to go to a local restaurant and get a gift certificate for them.

The woman’s club meeting went very well.  We had a number of thank you notes from the places we contributed to with donations.  Dr. T made a third sunshine basket for the two Syrian girls that were caught up in the Travel ban last week.  This was the family of the Restaurant worker that many organizations including DTC were supposed to help. I digress.

Anyway, the rest of the bird houses have been completed and will be distributes to a number of elementary schools around town.  We received a request from an additional school so the girls who will be delivering the houses will be doing a presentation as well.

Dr. T also told me later (after the meeting) that the Dr. Helen Langner Scholarship search is going on.  She told me a number of the applicants didn’t even know who the person was when asked.  Who is she you ask?  She was one of Milford’s finest citizens.  We have been giving out a scholarship in her name for nearly our entire existence.

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 …
