Fun Afternoon


When I Left here this morning it was after 10 I headed to the credit union and got money out and then headed to the salon.  I was very early so I went to the Pet store next door and saw all the sweetest and cutest pups.  I didn’t get to hold any of them but I spent a lot of time talking with one of the staff members.  We talked about the history of the store (no relations to the one out west) but they are selling the one in Guilford.    It was very interesting.  There seemed to be a variety of breeds.  Mastiff, Labradors, pugs, Schnauzers, and a huskie.  I left there just before 11 with a silent promise to return and get to sit with them.

Once I got next door I chatted with Mary Ann the receptionist and Karen my hairdresser and then had cookies.  A short time later the coloring was started and by the time I was completely finished it was after 12. I headed down towards Milford VIA Route 1 (huge, huge mistake!) and eventually made my way to Babies R Us to pick up the gift card and then headed to dollar store and got the air fresheners. 

After that I headed to Sis’s and we spent the next hour or so talking.  We talked about the frontier, family, and history.  It was a good time.  It was nearly 2 when I left.  I headed to Adams for some lunch/supper.  I had some BBQ ribs, and wings and nuts.

The rest of the afternoon and into the evening I did laundry spent time online and watched TV.  I couldn’t believe I heard that three shows on PBS were going off the air.  They included Keeping up Appearances (found that to be a little obnoxious), As time goes by (thought those were already done as the two showed up in a James Bond movie together few years ago) and Doc Martin.  Then I heard Mercy Street was being cancelled.  I sent a message to PBS to ask why.  No word yet.

The kitties spent their day doing various forms of…sleeping.  On more than one occasion this weekend I found them in different rooms sleeping.  Tiger was on the office chair where Sky is usually found.  Sky was on sleeping on the bed in the guest room.  A spot usually where I would find Tiger.  At one point Tiger was using Sky as pillow as he laid beneath the blankets in the spare room. 

This morning I woke up at 6:30.  That’s the latest I have slept on a Sunday.  I think all of our bodies were still on Standard time.  Even before we changed the clocks this morning something felt different.  I did my normal routine.  Fed the cats, cleared the boxes, slept for a little while, and got online.  I even participated on a FB live chat with our local weatherman.  He even read my post (beaming). 

I also sent messages to find out about The Ladies Guild and it is being cancelled.  There is no alert system in place to contact people. So I won’t be going out at all that day if this Storm is “the Perfect Storm”.  Drat.  I was really looking forward to seeing everyone.  I may put forth the idea of having a phone tree so if things like this happen or something comes up people can be contacted.  SB is so not ready for this storm or she writes.  She is planning on not going to work on Tuesday. 

This week is a visit from Livia.  I am glad she is coming tomorrow instead of Tuesday.  As she has been the last few times.  I am pretty sure if she couldn’t come she would have told me anyway.  I still have been picking up here and there.

The 4th district is not meeting this week as I originally thought (there is an extra week in the month) but Chairman V emailed to tell me or ask me if we could move it from the 23rd to Friday the 24th.  What was I going to say NO?  We have already had a couple of confirmations.  I froze the cake I ordered with pea pod. 


My Peapod delivery came just after 5:30.  I got everything I ordered.  Now I am set for the meetings and events I am supplying over the next few weeks.  Now I have enough pasta and pasta sauce if all the beef and fish run out.

Sis is still getting use to her new cable provider/internet/phone provider.  They didn’t have any TV last night as she pushed the wrong buttons and had to get it reset.  They thought there were supposed to get HBO for two years and they are not (not sure if that is kosher).  She did say the Internet speed is not fast.  Something I have heard from a few others.

Well I am tired and I need to get to bed….Have a great night…

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…
