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....

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…
