May Day 2017


Today is the first day of May and it is also called May Day.  It is a day in which we remember over 200 hundred years ago when Labor Workers fought to have eight hour work days and all that they had to go through  to get these goals met.  Not unlike Local 33 who are continuing their Fasting to slow campaign to get negotiations started.  We have several events we are going to participate this coming week.  I am not sure I will be able to get to them all especially the lunchtime ones.

Today was an early day I got to work about 20 of 8 and worked on the mail for most of the day and readdress mail while waiting for the rest to come.  Near the end of the day mailed some refunds. 

I was disappointed to find out that supervisor B would not be attending the dinner Wednesday night.  I was asking where he was planning on parking and that’s when he told me it wouldn’t be able to go.  I was really hoping to introduce him to Jim that night.  Now I don’t know if SR or anyone else is going but if SR is I just hope Jim and she don’t get into some stupid debate.  I seem to remember a discussion they had at Mom’s wake and that was almost three years ago.

It was pretty overcast for most of the day until I got home from work.  It was definitely warmer so I opened the windows and most of them are still opened.  I turned the heat down again before opening the windows. 

I am really getting discouraged with this whole watering the lawn.  I have the type of sprinkler that is called an impulse sprinkler.  Well every time I get it going I have to keep adjusting it.  It either misses the area completely or it floods the spot, or I am watering the damn walls of the house.  Better yet the minute I adjust it I get soaked.

I just got word that James Jr will be attending American University for Political Science.  He posted it to FB tonight.  I am looking forward to hearing Jim’s thoughts on it.  I was looking at the website for the school so much to look over.

Well I better get to bed I am tired and not feeling great.  Knee has been bothering me for a day or two now.  I have also been feeling light headed.

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 …
