I heard from my sister and she hopes to bring Nelson home today.  If that’s the case I need to probably keep away and let him resettle in and rest.  I will try and see them maybe during the weekend.  The rest of their family is doing well.

I finally heard from nephew John in Florida via IM.  He is preparing for his reassignment to Alaska.  He and his wife and fur babes are leaving June 10 driving there.  They will be going up through Canada.  I really look forward to reading their adventures.    We really didn’t talk long he was working in his yard.  I will have to send him another message soon.

John’s Sister Diane re-launched her Photography site.  I believe she does head shots for people who need them done for their work.  Yesterday was her Husband’s Birthday.

Rob is working-still not sure if he is still with his girl or not.  Actually I think I am sure he isn’t because there are no pictures of them together and he is always posting he is single.  I definitely don’t want to approach him on it and yet I think I should unfriend his ex because I feel disloyal to him.

My sister in law E is doing well in the Philippines.  It looks like she is still working on her resort and Cocoa farm and is now a motivational speaker.

Brother Jim is doing well by keeping busy.  His kids are doing well.  I think his son Jr is preparing for graduation this year.  God I can’t believe it.  When he came to us he was barely 2 and now he is off to college.  He is also incredibly smart.

The kitties have been really good sports with our friends.  They finally came around near the end of their visit and will probably be receptive when they come back tomorrow night.  One of them must have had a hair ball because I am still working on the spot they yakked on.  They are going to be crazy when I go back to work next week.

I have had a lot of fun with Mama and Papa and have missed them when they are up at their time share.  I did get to see them a few times just this week.  Mama and I had dinner with our club members at Wood and Tap last night and it was fun. 

I am having dinner with my friend D next Friday at a local restaurant.  It is our annual catch up dinner that we have when we haven’t seen or talked with each other in a while.   We still text each other from time to time.  Of course I follow him on Facebook.

I have been really enjoying my vacation these last two weeks but I am really looking forward to going back next week.  I don’t know what I will find when I get there.  I know I will be incredibly busy.

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 …
