The snow came as predicted


Well it seems the weather people are getting it right this time.  They predicted the snow would start at 7 and I just started noticing flakes about 10 after the hour.  It is supposed to snow all morning until about 1 and then be a wintery mix of rain and snow aka sleet.  I don’t know why they wouldn’t call it that.

There was some question about going to the lunch in Fairfield because of the weather..  This was the alternate plan since the party was cancelled.  Liz called late yesterday afternoon after her nap.  Apparently Niece’s family backed out completely from any of the activities because they would have to come down from New Britain.  They have the Winter Storm Warning for that area.

After a round of text messages of uncertainty it was decided that we would try it.  It was snowing pretty hard and getting deeper. I met up with them at their house and we left a little after 11 and got there sometime after 11:30.  We watched a movie and then eventually ate.  It was fun despite some conversations I had with Sis that I wasn’t happy with.  I told her I signed up with Meetup site and I am attending the first meetup.  She was asking all these really (admittedly) good questions but also warning me that it could be dangerous.  When I interrupted she asked me to let her finish.  You aren’t my MOTHER!  I told her that Mama R and Sister M have done meet ups.  She seemed pissed at me for the rest of the day.  She even criticized me for being hyper.  Then don’t invite me to come to your family functions if you are going to tell me how to eat or speak.    BIL tried to give her signals.  I thanked him later.  We did have a hard time getting out of their street but eventually came back to Milford and by then it was just raining and sleeting.

I was hoping that we didn’t have to go to the Ansonia Nursing Home this afternoon when it was worse.  Before I started getting ready I called Dr. T and spoke with her about it and she gathered I wasn’t going to come after I told her that we were heading to the party.  She just said watch for the emails.  But she said she would go herself if no one else did.  As it is I didn’t get home until maybe three.

I read a blog entry from Maine.  This particular blogger talked about the last storm that they had (probably the one on Thursday) and I loved reading about it.  I also enjoyed the hiker’s guide to Bangor Maine.  They will be on my bucket list especially the restaurants.

I got a 4th District Meeting reminder for Friday.  I am glad it’s on Friday because I am going to that Meet-up in Devon on Thursday.  We probably will talk more about the activism goals we have as well as getting candidates to come forward for the upcoming local elections.

Since I have been home watched TV played with the kitties who are waiting for me now, and had dinner and did some more laundry.  I also did some web browsing.

What did I see you ask?  Well I wanted to see the reviews of Meetup and the first site I came across was Site Jabber and I really hope I won’t be sorry.  You can see for yourselves and tell me if I should not even attend these things I have signed up for.

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 …
