It's Friday again

Another Friday has come and is quickly leaving  and may day consisted of finishing yesterday’s mail and scanning.  I was not feeling particularly successful today as the scanner stopped scanning at least three times.  I had to re-scan at least few batches a few times.

The weather wasn’t  too bad all though the weather people were sounding the alarms this morning.  Severe weather is coming in.  Well I believed it until I saw the sun this afternoon.   Although now I hear it will not be so great this weekend.  

Speaking of weather.  Do you have a favorite weatherman?  Well there are a few of them here in CT. Such as Geoff Fox,  Gil Simmons, and Brad Field to name a few.  Well Geoff Fox has been filling in for the night time crew at WTNH as they had to shift to fill in for Gil Simmons the morning Weatherperson who has been dealing with a very scary health issue.  He has been keeping viewers and fans updated on a fairly regular basis thanks to his colleagues and social media.   He is still on the mend and doesn’t know when he will be returning.  

Now this morning I learned that Meteorologist Brad Field over at the NBC affiliate (Hartford) announced his retirement.  He had been with the Channel for 34 years I believe.  I have to admit I don’t always watch that newscast.

Jim came in last night by 7.  He hit traffic in Norwalk.  We chatted for about 30 minutes about life in Milford, and back home and then kids.  Some of it was sad.  He doesn’t always get to see the kids or talk with them.  He is not going to flail about it but it does make him sad.    They are now flipping adults.  They should not have be told they need to call their father.  

My Brother and Sister attended the funeral of their former neighbor today.  Apparently I forgot to tell Jim that Liz would be there.  When I asked LIz about it she said she told him off in a way he got the message.  He didn’t call her last night when he arrived neither did he call to say let’s get coffee.  Now I am just waiting for him to ask response probably will be “go talk to her”.  At least it should be.

Connecticut lost another of their TV channels.  It was one of the Public bRoadcasting one.  I suspect it was rebranded from CPTV4u (which included sports) to CPTV Spirit.  ACcording to their blog CPTV spirit “will provide a more edgy journalism and documentaries, action, to get the viewers curiosity” ramped up..  

My sister and cousin have asked for  Mom’s old recipe files for bread pudding I found some tonight but I don’t think that’s the one she is looking for....I think what I will have to do is bring all these notebooks to her and let her find them herself.

Well I am tired and need to get to bed....

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 …
