[Last Week] [Monday] [Tuesday] [Wednesday] [Thursday] [Friday] [Saturday] [Sunday] [Next Week]

Rainy days and Mondays...though we only had about half an inch while the warm weather continues.

It was another very hectic day at work but managed to get a handle on a lot of work that got behind from last week's major project. Due to my increase in work load and the ever expanding support I am providing to the group I got an upgraded printer today. 

Off to the Y after work where I managed to work out all the stress and tension while listening to Mark Knopfler's All the Roadrunning he recorded with Emily Lou Harris.

[Last Week] [Monday] [Tuesday] [Wednesday] [Thursday] [Friday] [Saturday] [Sunday] [Next Week]

Things continue to be hectic, busy, stressful, etc. at work. We have have very busy spells in the past but nothing like it is right now. I love the challenges.

It was raining when I left for work. An hour later the snow was flying. It snowed all day with no accumulation downtown or here at home. It had turned back to rain by the time I left work. On to the Y from there. Some of our surrounding areas may have had an inch or so on the grass.

I am reading the latest William Tapply, a Stoney Calhoun mystery, Dark Tiger. The tiger in this case being a type of fly used in fly fishing as I learned in the first or second chapter of the book. Tapply passed away last July. According to the last letter he posted on his web site he had another Brady Coyne turned in to his publisher but I have not seen anything about it being published. He was also working on a stand alone mystery/suspense thriller.

We are back to cold and windy weather but lots of sunshine. Errands on the way home: vet to pick up heart worm pills for Malcolm, drop books off at the library, and grab a few things at the grocery store.  Bob fixed a chicken, noodle, and broccoli casserole for dinner with enough left over for another meal.

The trash is out and the recycling is on the curb. Time to relax, read, and watch a little of the Olympics. Tomorrow is the last night.

[Last Week] [Monday] [Tuesday] [Wednesday] [Thursday] [Friday] [Saturday] [Sunday] [Next Week]


I picked the folks up after work to bring them out to the Mexican restaurant on our side of town. We were meeting Frances and some of the people that mom and dad work/volunteer with at the hospital. They have a group of ten to twelve people that like to get together for dinner once in awhile at different places around town.

Last night they also celebrated mom's birthday.

Another sunny but cold and windy day. Malcolm and I picked up more sticks, swept up some of the leaves and sticks from the curb left when the city picks up branches, and did some other assorted odd jobs in the yard just to be outside getting some fresh air.

I have cleared and filed away a pile of stuff that was on my desk and paid the bills. I am reading another Sister Frevisse mystery, The Traitor's Tale.

Not sure why I said on Thursday that Friday was the last night of the Olympics. I know they always ran through Sunday with the gold medal hockey game on Sunday afternoon. I can remember I was watching that historic hockey match thirty years ago when USA beat Russia for the gold. 1980, single, living in my little one room apartment with a little over a year's experience working for the library system.

Happy Birthday to my mom.  She is 82 today.

The weekly house cleaning chores are done. I caught up the ironing in my basket and had Malcolm out back to play some ball. It is another cool and windy day out with some clouds and sun.

Reading and relaxing this afternoon in preparation for another busy week at work.
