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!

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 …
