Elcie and Rochelle went to visit a friend early this afternoon and are spending the night. Rebecca was visiting with my friend and her daughter most of the afternoon.
It was so quiet. Of course they're gone during the day when school is in session but this was different; it's a weekend and they've been hanging around the entire week. I decided to take a leisurely bubble bath, ran the water, and then discovered that one of them had used something oily in the tub and I almost broke a leg right then and there. Managed to wipe enough of what it was to crawl in and out but it sure took any idea of relaxation out of my head. I think they might have decided to dump in some lotion. Rebecca says no and I'm waiting to ask Rochelle. If she did it, she gets to drag out the cleanser and scrub the tub (even though I had done most of it, it's the principle that counts).
Number 1 cat is staring at me from the doorway looking for an opportunity to head for my pillow without my spotting her. She'll probably succeed - she's sneaky.
The woman on the motorcycle in the comments is Laurie, a mom from the Detroit suburbs.
Welcome to j., (not to be confused with L.) although that's where I first ran across "j". Everyone follow that? J. is a mom, lives in the San Francisco Bay area, and likes Mozart. Obviously, I was hooked.
If I missed responding to any of the comments over the last couple of days, consider this a thank you to all. Ray still doing okay (Yes I know I've said that before, usually the day before he went back into hospital). Same if I missed welcoming anyone; sometimes I lose track and I'm way behind on the blogroll. Not a hint, my trusted friend Andrea - you should be focused on your major project right now and I should learn how to do it.
For anyone who doesn't know, Andrea in Japan will soon be Andrea back home in Canada with husband and daughter (and all those shoes). I'm sure the last thing to be packed will be her computer.
The storm predicted for last night never completely materialized although Lady Jan, one county south, reported strong winds. Now they're saying dry and calm with temps in the high 60's to low 70's. I can live with that.
I think my son Jim has fixed my stubborn camera. The only problem is he borrowed it to do so. (He put in batteries and must have the magic touch because it worked fine for him.) Now I have to remind him to bring it back - not an easy thing. Their granddaughter was being baptized and they wanted pictures they didn't have to wait for. For any of you who don't know, they're expecting their own baby in May so their grandchild will be older than the baby. The baby is an uncle the minute he pops out. My youngest son Tim is not a lot older than my oldest grandchild (girls' dad) so I have very little room to talk.
We have a new meme (very little thinking involved) right below this post. A couple of people have responded already.
Giants won today. Barry, the person most people love to hate, hit his first home run of the season.
With that exciting announcement (hi fellow Giants fan Mollie), it's time for me to stop rambling.
Good night all.
