St Patrick's Day 2017

Yesterday was St Patrick’s Day.  It was also my maternal grandmother’s 119th Birthday. We had some great celebrations for Nanny (she didn’t like being called grandma) over the years.  Some at restaurants and later at family homes.   Her Siblings all died in their 90’s except for one that was Aunt Helen.  She died at 104.  My last memories of Nanny were she was in her house until was 90 we had a woman come and care for her when the children and grandchildren couldn’t.  Eventually she went into the nursing home when she deteriorated by dementia.  She was feisty almost to the end.

A lot of people were dressed in green in the office.  I didn’t.  Not even the socks that Dr. T gave me last week.  I had a very good chat with EV regarding the support of Local 33 and I have to say I am understanding it little more.  Also the importance of being a united front on issues as well. 

Now that some scanning is being done again (one person so far).  I will be looking up more EOBs and stuff.  I was told this by Supervisor Bob yesterday afternoon.  I will be doing it when things are a little slow (and there are going to be days like that).  Yesterday was not going to be that day.  I still had a lot to open by the time I left.   I also have a lot of checks to label and mail.

Great news…My cable provider and WFSB came to an agreement yesterday afternoon and now we get CBS again.  Just in time for the March Madness.  OF course two State Reps are taking responsibility for this action.  Both are friends of mine but I get the feeling they won’t acknowledge each other. Maybe they will.  Anyway it was great to see something on the channel.

When I got home I chatted with neighbor Don while he was playing snowball toss with Lilly. We talked about old neighbors and memories.

Then I came in and played with the kitties and then eventually made dinner.  It was tortellini and sauce.  I had a lot of it despite the fact I wasn’t planning on eating much.

The grocery delivery came just before 8 and he came in a truck with no lights inside the storage part.  He also stopped at a neighbor’s house.  Everything I ordered came.  I know I have some cooking to do later this afternoon.

I spent the rest of the night doing very little except crossword puzzles.  I did pretty well on about half them (I did ten puzzles).

Sky was pretty funny he was playing hide and seek with me in the living room.  I have a white chair with a high back and he hid under neither and every time I tried to look underneath he was swat at me his paws.  He “nailed me at one point and then he would push himself out from underneath and try and grab my heels.  I decided it was time to end and head to bed.

I took the laptop up with me to finish a few puzzles and guess who came first?  Tiger!  She had been sleeping in the chair for several nights but last night she decided to come to the bed.  Eventually sky also did.  We eventually fell asleep.

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.

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 …
