Independence Day 2017

Good Morning and Happy 4th of July to all who celebrate!  To our Military members I send continuous thanks for all that you continue to have done to  protect us.

Today will be a quiet day for me I think.  It will be spent working on laundry, and probably pen pal letters and notes to family and friends.

Last night would have been quiet if not for the 4th of July Eve celebrations going on.  It wasn’t an issue but it made me think of a discussion on one of the “Milford” FB boards that a woman was droning about the illegal fireworks being shot off in her neighborhood. She had been told to “get over it” multiple times.

I had a nice dinner.  It wasn’t the seafood dinner I was planning but instead an outback dinner.  I got one of their steak specials 9 in steak delicious with two sides.  Broccoli (had to make it semi healthy), baked potato and a bloomin onion.  It took me a while to finish the bloomin onion and realized why i don’t get that very often anymore.  It was as expected a tad greasy.  I was afraid it would cause me grief but so far nothing.

I talked with Liz via the phone last night.  She had just been spending the last couple of days with the grand kids and they went home a short while earlier.  She was returning my call from a day and half ago about the woman we knew from years ago.  She seemed uneasy that I was friended with the woman who told me about the mutual friend.  

I chatted with her via IM this morning about my phone.  She suggested I turn it completely off.  She also was telling me how she was spending today.  They decided not to go to Cheryls for their July 4 picnic.  

I heard from Jim this morning.  He was responding to my “phone wigging out on me”.  He suggested it was time for a new phone..technically this was a new phone.  I don’t want to spend more money.  He tells me he is going to the gym and perhaps to a picnic.

My lawn guy came to do the lawn and dropped off last month’s bill.  It wasn’t too bad but I paid it immediately.   I was thinking I need to set up a file for him.  I don’t usually keep the bills.

The rest of the day not much....

Wow it got cold fast

It dropped at least 10 degrees in a day or so.Yesterday I was being blown down the street while walking and today I have bundled up more.I heard we may get snow flurries tonight.Just as we are expecting the snow flurries the CPTV is rebroadcasting the documentary Blizzard of 78.
I had a good session with Debra.Talked about the events of the last couple of weeks and she is confident that I will be smart about the “Meetups”.She also recommended to not discuss it with Sis.We will meet next week regular time.
I did talk to Liz via text after I had received an invitation to my Niece’s baby sprinkle.(That’s what they are calling it cute huh?)Tentative plans are to go together.It will be later on this month.A week after Cheryl’s party.I am thinking it’s time for another outfit.I need to make time to get a gift for both parties.
I can say with relief that my traffic ticket I got last week was paid in full.They got it within the last couple of days.Bills are paid.
Work was fine we had a staff meet…

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 …
