Post -Holiday Life

We sent my nephew Greg back to the city this morning, as he is due back to work in the morning.

Jim is watching football on the television.

Kasia is sleeping at my feet.

and life is returning to normal???

This is a shot of the frozen Delaware Bay. I really am not encouraged to go to work, if offered this week, if the cold is still like this. Hopefully, the temperatures will edge up a little by little. I actually think we are due to have some rain coming later this week.

Otherwise, I think I’ll keep my fur girl company and curl up until it warms up.

It’s Oh So Quiet

It’s wonderful.

I was out front this evening and this was the view from our front porch. While standing there quietly, It’s incredible to listen to the twilight sounds accompanying the deepening and eventual darkening of the clouds and sky. It’s even the point where mosquitoes are getting a little tired of chomping away.

It’s trading the tourist traffic for people coming home from work. Soon the leaves will be changing and the sky will be opening up to more to see once the leaves fall. Pumpkins are out, as are the mums. Weekend people still come down. Those four or five days while they are working? Nirvana…sheer nirvana.

If I could just get a temperature drop to 65, then things would be great for down here at the”Undisclsed location.”

Have a nice weekend!

Just Another Day

Here’s my Zush girl, in the middle of her afternoon sundowning session.

It’s been kind of strange that she had been pretty good for a few weeks. Today , however, it’s like we are back at square one. It’s hard to figure out. It has been a sunny day, so I pulled the shades about the same time as usual. As with all  cases of dementia, both canine and human, there’s a lot to learn along the way. So each day? They are a challenge for us both.

I am back to work tomorrow. I am hoping our girl can get a good night 😴.Here’s hoping you have a good week!

Medical Follies

I had an appointment with my general practitioner this Friday.

While on line today, two jobs opened up for later this week so I thought I should try to reschedule before I take the open jobs for Thursday and Friday.

During a phone call to the doctor’s office, I was informed that the only thing open was for 9am tomorrow. 

Uh, ok.

Any wagers that it’ll be my nurse practitioner? With all respect to my pal Kate, this is the nurse practitioner that if I listened to her back in the fall, I probably would have had to have an infected knee out due to her directions. ** shuddering at the thought**.

I’ll keep you posted.

Hurry Up and Wait…

Ah, the joys of relocation.

This time last year I was lamenting the fact that we had to get up tomorrow morning at 2am and make sure we were packed up to head back to the city. To add insult to injury, after we would unpack the car and walk the girls, we’d have, maybe, a half hour to lay down before I’d have to leave for work.

How times have changed.

I am watching folks in the neighbor hood throw their trash away in their cans, close their windows, pack their cars and kids up and head up Delsea Drive or the Garden State Parkway. It’s a step backward into the area I have come to love during the weekday, the area called QUIET.

Sure, It doesn’t hurt that I have two days off until I have to go back to the bakery, but, hey, it’s the first official weekend holiday of summer. I am not going to bed at 9:30. I am having an adult beverage.I can sleep in tomorrow.

Whoo-hoo!

To go or not…

Labor day is coming up.

I put in for a ton of time off**read 10 days*** and am wondering what I am going to do.

Last year I was with the girls at Undisclosed and loved it!
One problem with that this year- the house that was is no longer there
and I’d have to stay in the cottage with the girls.

Jim is not too happy with the idea.

If I go to Undisclosed for the weekend and come up, well,I’d feel obligated
to do stuff and I need to kick back.

Maybe this will help me make up my mind…lol
