What a Flop

Slow day today.  Joe left this morning about 6:15.  He was running a little late as he had to get his numbers done before starting out .  He was to go right to a meeting so had to leave early.  I made him take some banana bread so he would have something in his stomach.  Holly went to work shortly after and she said if it kept snowing she would not be back for supper.  She has night audit so will stay right there at the hotel rather than try to come home in the snow only to turn around and go back for the night audit.  We will see her in the morning when she finishes her numbers.  If the workers all worked as long and as hard as the management does they would all be rich or dead.  Luke didn’t wake up or come down stairs until 10:30.  I told him I was not going to chase him to learn, if he wants me teach him, he has to get to bed early so he can get up early.  He was very sorry he slept so late and said he would get up earlier tomorrow, we’ll see.  We did do  quite a bit of school work.  We stopped for a sandwich and then went right back to work and finally I called it quotes about 3:30.  I get sleepy in the afternoon so I left him to do some math worksheets and an English worksheet and I dozed.  I spent the morning working on the songs.  I found a couple more artists I had forgotten.  Tonight I am working the Tommy Dorsey Band.  I didn’t remember Frank Sanatra was his lead singer.  Do you remember “Milkman Keep Those Bottles Quite”? By Georga Gibbs another of Tommy Dorsey’s singers.  They entrained the troops.   I had forgotten that one.  I am finding so many that I haven’t thought of for years.  I wish I had found this hobby a long time ago.  Norman would had enjoyed hearing all these old songs.  We would have had more fun finding these instead of me sitting there knitting and he sitting there reading.  It would have been something we could do together for a change.  There really wasn’t much we could do together  there in Florida at the Villa.  There was no outside work to do except tend a few blueberry bushes and Norman didn’t have the strength to do any remodeling so we sat and read and knit.  Oh, well it is something to keep me busy now and I can remember some good times.

I have to stop for tonight,  I just got a message from Alexa that she is having trouble connecting to the internet and said I should look at the help section in my echo app.  I didn’t even know I had an  echo app but I will look and see if I can see what is wrong.  If I can’t Joe will be home tomorrow night and before he goes on his business trip Monday perhaps he can help me.  Have a great day.

I lost the internet connection last night so could not publish this.  It is now Friday am early and the internet is back and I’ll publish it now.  Have a great day now.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
