Today is Neighbor Shannon’s 18th birthday and she has been a blessing and joy to watch for the last 18th years.  She has been raised right by her parents whom I am grateful for because they have been there for me and my late mother whenever we needed thing.  I am grateful for all my neighbors too.

I discovered this week that one of my other neighbors put her house up for sale.  She has an absentee landlord because she has been living in NY and renting out the house here.  I am grateful to her for selling because in the short time she was here (5 years or so ago) she was a complete witch.  I just feel bad for the renters.

I have been looking around the house as of late and notice things here and there that need fixing. Some walls need plastering, windows (lots of them) need to be replace.  I have been trying to keep the heat down to 68 when I am in the house.  There are only a few times that I was so cold I put it to 70.  OF course I am happy that I have someone to come clean it for me. 

I know I kvetch when I feel I am overwhelmed; feel I am too busy but I still like it.  There are some days I have activities such as the International dinner at the shelter this past week.  We have many more activities coming up before the year ends.  The creative writing contest reception, three more general meetings, the fashion show, and of course the bird house deliveries.  I am not doing all of those (I think the girls have volunteered to do the birdhouses)

The district and committee meetings continue and we are planning the annual awards night in June.  The location has yet to be determined.  We get information on things that are happening in and around the city and their citizens.

The Ladies guild has a couple of activities coming up next month a bake sale and plant sale.  You know I probably will do the no bake cheese cake again.   I may try something different this time as well.

The kitties are being funny.  They have been racing around at night and making sure I get up in the morning or go to bed when I should.  I found Sky rolling around in the litter box this morning and then he was just sitting there and it looked like was starting to fall asleep in the box!

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 …
