Early Morning

I was up early for a Saturday (no not the usual 5:30) but I saw a beautiful semi sun rise.  It was between the horizon and the clouds that were will be with us for most of the morning.  It was bright orange.  I wish I had my phone with me.

I checked the cellar and the floor is almost dry but the rug isn’t.  I can’t move the rug very well.  The well isn’t full yet but I am going to keep it going for another couple of hours.  Then what ever is leftover will dry on its own.  I am just wondering if the water that came through the bathroom floor to the cellar did any damage to the wood.  I have visions of the floor collapsing into the cellar.  Knock on wood but it hasn’t happened.

It looks like MYWC will be getting together for dinner near the end of the vacation time.  I am very excited about this. I just don’t know if this conflicts with Mike and Roberta’s itinerary.

I called Mama Joanie and found out she has been in the hospital since Tuesday and then transferred to a nursing home in Newtown.  So I went up to see her (yes I know I am avoiding things but this is important).   I made a stop at the local farm store near the house and bought a perennial that had reminded me of her.  When I left there the GPS was bound and determined to have me go route 34 and I wasn’t having it.  I had to adjust the directions a couple of times and managed to get there about 1:30.

Her room is like any other room in the short term area.  The facility itself is in the hills of Newtown and is lovely.  She was dozing when I got there so I woke her up and showed her the flowers and then put them on the built in desk by the window.  We spent the next hour talking about her health, what was to come next, and we talked about work, vacation, and my life.  I told her about the flood of Grove Street and she seemed to get a laugh out of it.  Glad she did.

 It was after 2:30 when I left and I headed back home with a stop at a gas station on Route 25 and to Cracker barrel for early supper. I had pancakes, sausage and scrambled eggs, tea and juice.  I didn’t get to eat all of the eggs I was too full.   I got home sometime around 4 pm.

The kitties came running to greet me and they wanted kibble and to go downstairs.  So I gave them both.  I spent the next several hours watching TV, and doing crossword puzzles.  I also did some laundry. Now I am watching the last of the LOTR trilogy. 

The kitties are both sleeping upstairs…and I am going to say goodnight…

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…
