New Day,New Toy

Jim dropped me off on the way to work this morning. I have a doctor’s appointment,so I am sitting in a Dunkin’ Donuts. I am playing with my new iPhone 4S, so this is the maiden voyage with it.

Since the whirlwind of the move, my nerves have been kind of raw. I am going to try to see if this appointment can set me back on the good foot.

In the meantime,Zush and Kasia gave us the sad faces as we prepared to leave. I myself have a sad face as I eavesdrop on a conversation here. Someone is talking about a beautiful hydrangea, which I had at the old house and miss it.

Nothing in life is easy.. but you knew that, right?

Good morning

So I am sitting here in my neighborhood Dunkin’Donuts, having taken public transit up to a doctor’s appointment. Having been blessed enough to get through three cancers, I don’t,as a rule, let my health slide. Mom took priority, but as she is gone eleven months now,well, time to play catch up.

Sitting in DD, I am a table away from some locals discussing current events. A livelier crew I have not come across in a while. Due to the Duchess of Cambridge’s current extreme morning sickness, well, these folks are dissecting the situation to the nth degree. I can imagine the staff here. It would be worth the price of working here to get the floor show.

Now that I am full of current events, I guess it’s time for the doctors.

Have a wonderful day.

You say potato, I say po-tah-toe….

So if you have been following the epic saga of ” Shingleman”, you’ll remember our hero, “Shingleman” has been sleeping sporadically, at best, due to the nerve pain.

 

Enter….

 

Yes…Dunkin’ Donuts…Yesterday, being Monday, was “use your punch card for a free iced tea or coffee” day. Coming in from the train in the morning, I stopped and got an iced coffee. Didn’t have any coffee but that. Then lunchtime came. HAH! I have another card, I said to myself (yes, I often have conversations with myself…lol) hey, you have another card: get one with lunch. Keep in mind that I was eating lunch around 1:30 pm yesterday…AND…I am over 50….yup, you know where this is going.

I didn’t fall asleep until 1 in the morning and then promptly got up at….TWO! Finally fell back to sleep at three, and got up for the day at 5:15 a.m…..”Shingleman” actually slept a few hours : I know because I heard the snoring.

It’s going to be a LONG day.

Me? Unfaithful to my Keurig?

…Yup, if I have a card for a free Dunkin’ Donuts iced tea or coffee.

I picked one up coming into the office this morning from the train. I gave myself a treat and let them put some cream in it.**sorry Greg**

I can’t believe that it’s going to have highs in the 70’s today and this week. I think back longingly to the day of spring coats. and cardigans, and curse global warming. I am wearing a seersucker shirt today and strangely feel like I should be going home today pulling out capris out of my closet. I hate to see the heat come, as poor Zusher gets the best of it. My friend Juls has her Brinley puppy cut to keep her cool, and think I might have to resort to that to keep Zusher comfortable this year….**sigh**

Happy last day of winter !
