Cheryl's Party

The Surprise party was a huge success (although she admitted as the hours passed she kind of knew something was being planned). Only a handful of people dressed up (mostly sibs, and kids, and of course my sister and Bil).  The party was to start at 2 but Sis thought it was at 1.  A fact I mentioned when I arrived at her house today.  There was plenty of food.  Appetizers included cheese and crackers, stuffed breads, veggie platter with dipping sauce, bruschetta, and pizza.  The buffet had everything as well, pasta, eggplant rollattini, chicken piccata, roasted potatoes, and steamed vegetables and salad and the bread.   I showed some restraint and didn’t have EVERYTHING and still it was good but I didn’t have dinner when I came home. 

There was some dancing to the 80’s music as well.  I did get up there but grew tired and breathless, and sweaty in a very short time.  Evidently I need to still work on my energy level and physique.  It might explain my being tired by 5.  The party broke up around 5 and we were back in town by 6 and I was home a short time later.

I haven’t done much since I got home.  I folded some clothes, cleaned out the sink, watched TV (there doesn’t seem to be much on except for sports and few movies I have seen already).  I will be sending the dishwasher through as soon as I finish my tea.

The kitties were waiting for me by the door when I arrived.  I let them go downstairs a few times and I think Tiger headed upstairs already.  Sky is back and forth and meows like crazy.  I have already gave them kibble before I left so I am not giving them any more until tomorrow.

While I was getting some cash at Walgreen’s I had the opportunity to call Mama Roberta today.  I wanted to tell her that the family who moved into their old house took down a tree that was in the yard.  I told her about JCP closing (which I had a feeling she knew from reading it on Patch) and just as she was telling me about the decapitation that happened in her development we got disconnected.  I was furious that the phone was acting wonky and I couldn’t get the phone back.  By then it was time to get to Liz’s.  While they were getting ready I called her back.  We agreed to call later tonight but now I am too tired.  I did send her an email that I found the alert regarding the decapitation.  I am going to read it again tomorrow.

This week will be active.  The beginning of the week I will be working on the checks, mail, and adding the newest task to my kitty.  I have a local 34 committee meeting on Tuesday.  Nothing else that I can think of for the office. 

Wednesday night I have to be at the Beth El Shelter for the dinner we are serving to the people there.  I have already put a few of the refreshments in a box for me to carry and still have to put the rest in another box.  I am so glad I kept some of the boxes from my deliveries this week.

I have a couple of meetings later on in the week.  In between all that I am going to have to find time to straighten the house.  My Dining room table is cluttered and the bathroom needs to be cleaned.  I can see the vacuuming needs to be done in the living room.  I have to make sure I get the cake out in time to defrost.  I need plates for it.  I have enough plastic cups (I am sure my chairman will have water or soda).

Before I say good night.  I just want to say thank you to all of you who have come to visit and liked my blogs.  I hope you enjoyed what you have read and I hope you come back soon.

Wow it got cold fast

It dropped at least 10 degrees in a day or so.Yesterday I was being blown down the street while walking and today I have bundled up more.I heard we may get snow flurries tonight.Just as we are expecting the snow flurries the CPTV is rebroadcasting the documentary Blizzard of 78.
I had a good session with Debra.Talked about the events of the last couple of weeks and she is confident that I will be smart about the “Meetups”.She also recommended to not discuss it with Sis.We will meet next week regular time.
I did talk to Liz via text after I had received an invitation to my Niece’s baby sprinkle.(That’s what they are calling it cute huh?)Tentative plans are to go together.It will be later on this month.A week after Cheryl’s party.I am thinking it’s time for another outfit.I need to make time to get a gift for both parties.
I can say with relief that my traffic ticket I got last week was paid in full.They got it within the last couple of days.Bills are paid.
Work was fine we had a staff meet…

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 …
