Cinco De Mayo Day 2017


Happy Cinco De Mayo Day but is it really for us?  I was just watching a video on the History channel site and it explained it’s to remember the battle of Pueblo.  Where the French were beaten by the Mexican rebels there.  I only covered a little bit of info or trivia here but there is a lot more t know.

Today is my long weekend.  I put the time in at the beginning of the week when I discovered how much time I needed to take or lose.  So I quickly put in for last Wednesday and today.

This week has been very busy and very gratifying all the same time.  Work has been great and Wednesday night was my long term service dinner at Schwartzman hall attached to Woolsey Hall in New Haven.  Jim came up that afternoon to attend with me and we had a great time.  We took Uber to and from the event. 

There was so many people and we were given name tags and a yearbook with everyone who was honored.  Some people were listed with no pictures.  Some of them I have worked with personally and some I have met over the years.  The food was great and the President of the University was there but had vocal cord issues and had to have the provost take over now and then.  Jim really enjoyed my coworkers and the union reps who were there too. 

We were really impressed with Uber and the drivers.  I have to say the fares were a reasonable but $20 at a clip might not be something I need to shell out all the time.  Maybe once in a while.

The weather has been windy for the last few days today its raining and expected to be heavy at times.  That’s okay I am not going far today. I do hope tomorrow is better because I would like to go wash my car.

I actually have the rug cleaning crew coming around 12:30 and I still have stuff to move out of places and not a lot of time to do it.  I am hoping the kitties are both upstairs so that they won’t come down when they arrive or afterwards.

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 …
