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....

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…

Busy Friday

I spent a couple of hours working on mail and sending out refunds for the afternoon mailing.  By the end of the morning I spent it working on scanning until the end of  the day.  I  don’t feel I got a lot done but I did have some problems with a couple of the batches.
I did make an appointment with Courtney the health coach for next week.  I was beginning to think I missed an appointment but when I checked with her I found that I hadn’t.  It will be on Wednesday at 4:30.
I wasn’t sure I could eat anything chewy yet so I had broccoli and cheese soup for lunch.  It was good and I did chew on the left side of the mouth with no problem but as usual I probably used both sides.  I had been drinking lots of water at least I tried.  I had some coffee.
It was also refrigerator cleaning day at work.  I had forgotten and manage to lose a new coffee creamer that I put in there from Thursday next time that happens I am bringing in a cooler  so I don’t waste three dollars.  It's already on the nex…

Jeans Day

This is becoming my favorite day of the week.  It's the day we can wear jeans to work.  It is a day to be comfortable but still be functionable and get work done.  Today it may have been a little too comfortable as I found my falling asleep a number of times at my desk.  Today was a little bit of mail and the rest of the day was scanning.  It went pretty well with a few glitches.  I have put in my time for my appointments for July.  I have taken all of Wednesday off and that will be explained in a moment.
I went to the food court outside the hospital for lunch and got some chinese food.  It was pretty good.  THere was a concert in the courtyard next door.  It was great listening to the music.  It has been a long time since I saw those there.
I have to admit I am still not feeling completely well.  I had my dental checkup yesterday and it looks like i am having a root canal done next wednesday..  It hadn’t been hurting for the last few days until they began to poke and prod it.  Hone…
