Blizzard Stella Arrived...


I got home just before 5.  Don was stocking up on wood for the fireplace in his house.  His wife getting dinner from a local Chinese Restaurant.  We talked about Stella.  We were to arrange the cars in away were he wouldn’t have to navigate between the cars so we parked them further back in the driveway but not too far in case we had to get out.  Don’s plan is to be able to go back and forth so it will be even between them all.  He also told me (which I figured that out while I was at work) he wouldn’t be clearing the snow until late Wednesday or even may be Thursday.  I may have to take a bus that morning.

While I was still outside I talked with Neighbor Chris P and explained the whole “I saw your dog outside while you weren’t home” story.  We also talked about whether or not we will be going in to work on Wednesday.  Everyone on the RR has to from what I am gathering.

Once I got back to the house I moved the car to the spot Don wanted and then I combined garbage cans (one had ice and garbage in it and couldn’t be moved) I took the ice melt and other things inside so they would not be covered (in snow) or blown away by the wind. 

The kitties came down to greet me and watched me go back outside to secure stuff they probably thought I was crazy.  Once I finally got in I gave then kibble and watched TV.  I made some calls, sent text messages and then eventually made dinner.  I also let them down in the cellar but they kept coming back up and then every time I closed it he cried.  After a while they both went upstairs.

I made cooked the burgers I made and froze last week.  They were good but still needed a little more cooking.  Next time I will do it more.  I put a couple of slices of Muenster and 1 extra slice I ate by itself. I had some hot coffee and drank water and then cleaned the kitchen up.

I got to watch a movie that Leonardo DiCaprio made a couple of years after Titanic.  It was the Man in the Iron Mask.  I loved it when I first saw it many years ago and to this day I loved it.  One of the cast mates eventually played a demon from the King Arthur era on Charmed’ 5th season.  Which I thought was pretty good. 

I did throw in the sheets from the bed Livia left me (she did an awesome job again).  That’s why I really didn’t want to leave a trail behind me last night.  I decided to fold them this morning after I fed the cats and had coffee.

I went to bed early because I was tired and I was getting the sniffles.  I had been worried I was getting something when I found myself sneezing a lot yesterday.

So when did Stella arrive?  It must have arrived here around 2.  I noticed it was snowing around 3 and at first it didn’t seem to be a lot but by 10:30 it seemed to be raining or sleeting.  The plow came through early this morning.  It looks like it never came.  I am somewhat disappointed in this storm.  I have been following the reports and everything but I was expecting constant snow.  Wind blowing in Gale force winds and it did for about 5 minutes.

This morning I have been able to go back to sleeping and watching TV and not what I had hoped to do but there is still the rest of the day today and tomorrow.  Of course maybe not.  If we don’t get any more snow and the roads open I may have to take the bus because neighbor Don won’t be plowing until Thursday.

Late this afternoon the Governor lifted the travel ban.  Yep I am going to work tomorrow.  I will be taking the bus. DAMN.

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…

Busy Friday

I spent a couple of hours working on mail and sending out refunds for the afternoon mailing.  By the end of the morning I spent it working on scanning until the end of  the day.  I  don’t feel I got a lot done but I did have some problems with a couple of the batches.
I did make an appointment with Courtney the health coach for next week.  I was beginning to think I missed an appointment but when I checked with her I found that I hadn’t.  It will be on Wednesday at 4:30.
I wasn’t sure I could eat anything chewy yet so I had broccoli and cheese soup for lunch.  It was good and I did chew on the left side of the mouth with no problem but as usual I probably used both sides.  I had been drinking lots of water at least I tried.  I had some coffee.
It was also refrigerator cleaning day at work.  I had forgotten and manage to lose a new coffee creamer that I put in there from Thursday next time that happens I am bringing in a cooler  so I don’t waste three dollars.  It's already on the nex…

Jeans Day

This is becoming my favorite day of the week.  It's the day we can wear jeans to work.  It is a day to be comfortable but still be functionable and get work done.  Today it may have been a little too comfortable as I found my falling asleep a number of times at my desk.  Today was a little bit of mail and the rest of the day was scanning.  It went pretty well with a few glitches.  I have put in my time for my appointments for July.  I have taken all of Wednesday off and that will be explained in a moment.
I went to the food court outside the hospital for lunch and got some chinese food.  It was pretty good.  THere was a concert in the courtyard next door.  It was great listening to the music.  It has been a long time since I saw those there.
I have to admit I am still not feeling completely well.  I had my dental checkup yesterday and it looks like i am having a root canal done next wednesday..  It hadn’t been hurting for the last few days until they began to poke and prod it.  Hone…
