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…

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 …
