Southern Storms, Easter Planning, and Weekend Outlook

Well, yesterday it was a stormy little afternoon and evening as this low pressure line moved north into our area creating very unsettled weather and thunderstorm cells. As I got home yesterday I could see the weather moving up from the south and could see this red blob above moving toward us. We had other red blobs but for the most part all the red blobs missed us.

I gathered the cat and Roger and got them in the basement. I took wine, dog snacks, my phone, my purse and so forth down there. I had already had some chips and salsa when I got home, fed Roger and the cat and this storm was getting closer. I knew it was coming before the alarm ever went off. Roger immediately went to sleep so I didn’t have to worry about containing him. All I had to worry about at that point, was whether George would get home. But he left early too. While the garage is connected to the basement, we go to a concrete block area underneath the ground that is just under the front porch. I call it my “Hidey Hole”.

No sooner than I got everything down there and George got home, it blew over and it would be a couple of hours more before more storms came through. Eventually as the low lifted and the front came through it morphed into more of a line.

I had to watch one coming toward Mom. I had told her to be alert already but texted her that storms were on their way. She called me from the shower stall in her bathroom where she and Fancy were. We talked until we saw the storm was kindof splitting into. It calmed itself but I could see it shifting it’s energy more north. I was happy with my ability to read the radar and make predictions. I called tornado warnings twice before they did! If I had a life to live over I’d probably go into meteorology, but not on camera I don’t think. I’m too goofy for that!

Anyway, I was glad that was over and that we did not have to worry about the storms coming through at night and being asleep (or staying up all night). So I slept good after the storms all went past, close to 9:00 p.m.

I am so glad it is Friday. But I will say it has been a very fast week. I’m shocked that it’s Friday. But I’ll take it.

Little Roo a Social Ham!

I think Little Roo is thinking he is going to miss going to day care this weekend. He’s turning into a social butterfly – enh, maybe we ought not say that. He’s just a little social ham! lol. Look at those chunky monkey legs! I love it. I love his little porcupines.

I don’t have a lot to share. It’s been busy. Nothing really interesting happening. It is month end and also Quarter End at work. I believe all of my month end is finished already but I began working on Quarter End printing of reports, and getting everything ready to work on. I have to pay Quarter End taxes and then I will work on some of the spreadsheets for QE reconciliation and doing QE withholding returns. And after all that I’ll do the unemployment returns. There are a couple of other federal returns too. It’ll be a busy month of April.

Prepping for Easter Weekend

Next week is a 4 day week as we have Good Friday off. I’m going to get Momma on Thursday and she will be spending the weekend with us. We are going to drive by and look at that community place she is thinking about moving to while she is here. We have some plans in place for meals in and a couple of meals out. I need to firm all that up this weekend, determine ingredients, make a list and get what I can this weekend, and then we’ll have to do a fresh ingredient run mid week I guess. I’ll need to make a schedule for myself so I remember what I’m cooking when. Our big easter meal will be on Saturday. I’ll be taking Mom home Easter Sunday. Have to work on Monday.

So this weekend I’ll prep some and also will get her room ready. I’ll be back to my old bed, sleeping with George and Roger while she is here. If sleep can be had, lol.

To Do List Hasn’t Changed Much

Also this weekend, I’ll try to get some things done on this list. Of course I’ll be doing all the cleaning and laundry and getting ready for the next work week. But this is like my personal list. I put “dust” on there so I’d do that first! I like to dust when the sun is bright and I can see it lol! I’ll do some spring cleaning too. May spruce up the sun room if it’s pretty so we can enjoy it when Mom is here. But this is my “extra and personal” to do list. And it doesn’t usually change much as I hardly get time to work on it. The Lula Roe blouse is “on its way”. lol. It’s not the “Morgan” blouse but another one.

So I might use the Cracker Barrel card today and finish that off for lunch. I asked George if he wanted to go out to eat tonight and he said he didn’t really want to but would if it was a big deal to me. It’s NOT a big deal to me. I can eat home just fine. But I will go for lunch then! I’m ready for a salad!

And I will have to work on my weight loss program and be a little more intentional. I did some stress eating this week. I need to figure a few things out. I’ve even considered going back on my program full force, but I’m weighing my options.

Spring Blooms

And Spring has Sprung! Blooms are really getting pretty around here. I believe I’ll be planting a few things too come April 15th and the freezes are over. When May gets here it’ll start getting warm and by mid June we won’t be wanting to be outside much anymore during the day.

Ok off to get ready and go to work. Sooner I get there the sooner I can get off!

What ya’ll doing this weekend? I love to hear from you!

    Hi Sonya, a wee bitty later getting my reply to you but I’ve had a real hassle on the phone this morning I was only trying to phone in a reading for my gas bill…but do you think I could get them to accept what I had got Peter to read….no way…it took me almost an hour phoning twice ! Once I was on hold for 20mins ! It makes me so angry. Anyway I’m glad you were safe from last nights storms and Mum too, I’m always thankful that we don’t have to worry to much about our weather. We just get fed up with rain rain rain, but then we love the green fields and trees. Especially at this time of the year and we coudnt have that without the rain….
    Loved the photo of the wee one, he is beginning to look a right wee boy isn’t he. I think his wee romper suit thing has hedgehogs on it ??…….hope the rest of today goes well and you have your salad…..Hope next week goes as fast as this one and that we get to Enjoy Easter …..take care. God Bless
