Hoping to get my booster in the next couple days!Today I watched a bunch of YouTube while I worked on a landscaping plan for my front yard. Later, I went to get my Covid booster and then I picked up pho for dinner. Right now, I'm still watching YouTube. I really need to go in my pottery studio sometime, but I keep putting off going down there.
Schedule an appointment with Walgreens. I scheduled my appointment for Sunday on Friday, so it isn't a long wait.Went to a couple different pharmacies and they still don’t have the COVID booster in. I would really like to get it done because I have a wedding to go to mid October. I also got my hair cut this morning, which was really needed. Too wet outside to work there and not much to do inside except a bit of laundry.
Nice emergency prep there artiemom . Glad it was only needed for a relatively short time.Kind of craziness today.. nothing new, living in this building.
Last night, the power went off... only emergency lighting in the halls; apartments were pitch black. I was reclining so nicely on the recliner, with a throw, PJ's and Geoffrey on my lap.. Blam, all went dark!! I am always prepared for an emergency loss of power or even water main break. I had to push Geoffrey off my lap, opened the blinds, saw the street lights on, but no lights in the buildings.. so it was a wide outage, for this neighborhood.
Heard neighbors out in corridor, went out to talk; making sure Geoffrey did not run out. Came in, went into my drawer, where I keep an ancient old fashioned corded telephone with a long line. It was really fun trying to plug it into the telephone outlet, in the dark. Finally got a flashlight, and connected it.
Then, more talk outside... went to check it out... Then in to grab stepstool, with flashlight, for my closet. My supplies are on the top shelf..Finally grabbed the emergency lanterns, and a very old Boombox, which has great reception with batteries.
Geoffrey was curled around my legs the entire time. It was dark and I was afraid he would either trip me, or I would step on him. I had to slither my way around...
Thank goodness the elevators were working! They said out of order, but they worked!! very slow, but we used it in groups. The fire department came to check things out. Comcast sent a text, apologizing for the outage of service!!!
There were 5 National Grid trucks in front of my building.. Heard they were working on 'something' late afternoon.. strange...
Within an hour, things were back to normal------EXCEPT, now, there was no hot water!! DAM.....The switch had to be reset!!
So, no shower this morning. I heated up water on top of the stove in order to do a quick wash and teeth... Will take a nice long hot shower, later.
Read that National Grid was replacing a telephone pole in front of the building. And that there was a bad car accident not far from here. Wonder if that hit a pole or transformer.. It was a perfect storm in many ways... It was so windy-- gale force winds and rain.. and chilly..
Today is pretty much easy stuff... no vacuuming.. Got together with a few people for coffee. Four of us are having an outing on Thursday. We are going to Salem, MA, taking a tour ride of interesting stuff: Witches, House of 7 Gables, Pickering Wharf, etc.. have lunch, and wander around... getting another sweat shirt.. We are trying to do something "fun', once a month.
It is an expensive day, but so enjoyable.
Next month the Tenants Association is going up to New Hampshire, to visit an Outlet Mall in Merrimack, New Hampshire. My group is going. We do not plan on buying stuff, but we plan to walk around, have some coffee and a snack. The Bus will stop for pizza on the way back...
Have to go out to pick up a prescription; return and put the supplies away!
Weird, mixed up day. nothing went as planned.
Its hard. My grandparents were in this county for 60 years and while they spoke some English, it was hard for them to fully express themselves in it.clean
feed assorted creepy crawlies
go to dinner with gf and her dadafter she checks his mail and dbl checks things that should be in order for him before his month long trip to koreaits so frustrating to deal with him at times i feel like telling him enroll in some senior classes and learn the language here something he should have done before or soon as he immigrated here
Too bad you do not live closer!! Or we had better planning! We could have met you guys in Salem, on your way up to Maine!! There is a tiny bit of foliage up there. Have fun! The weather was good yesterday and will be for a couple more days.. Rain on Saturday..
