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.

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…
