Party last night:
Your good vibes worked as there was no snow and we made it safely to and from the party. The party was held at the Thirst Wine & Restaurant Bar. It sits on the waterfront in downtown Portland with a beautiful view of the Willamette River. They had a nice buffet set out and all during the night a waiter or waitress would bring a plate of stuff in addition to the buffet. Pork sandwiches and chicken skewers for example were not part of the buffet but were served throughout the night. We had a great bartender. Everyone there was very relaxed. Amy the receptionist that has now been promoted to solely doing tax returns brought her baby that was born in August. Cute as a darn button. Nancie being the nice person she is kind of looked out for the baby so Amy could have the night off. Nancie and Amy developed a friendship when Nancie worked at the firm. I go a real surprise when they gave me a holiday card and inside was a crisp fifty dollar bill. What meant more than the money was the thought. It is so nice that they appreciate me.
Speaking of that. The last three years I have been sitting at desk back in the warehouse. This year they remodeled the firm and added an office. I am going to be in that office now. A nice office with a door and everything!
The Weather Today:.
The vibes worked well but this morning the snow started to fall. When I woke up this morning there was no snow just a little ice. After an hour of Sunday Paper surfing I looked outside and there was an inch of snow on the ground. It has been snowing off and on, some sticking, some not. In a real weird quirk it snows harder in the front yard then the backyard. It is predicted to be doing this on and off for the next three days. I cancelled my lunch with Mom today and it just seems like a good day to read, watch football, pay bills, and work around the house.
A LOOK BACK.
Last week was a full week. The party last night was insightful in some ways. Even though Nancie and I went our separate ways it was really nice having her there. That feeling of being a fifth wheel kind of disappeared. Friday was the seminar and I learned a few things, like accounting seminars are boring. Thursday, Wednesday, and Tuesday were at Mom's and after a tense day on Tuesday the other days were fun and pleasant. Monday was errands and work. Sunday was taking Mom to lunch.
A LOOK FORWARD
Looks like an easy week which will allow be the time I need to get ready to go back to work. Today it is home rule. At home and doing little things that need to be done. Of course there will be time to watch The Golden Globe Award show. Tomorrow is a movie and some shopping. At the party when the gift game was going on I "stole" a book store gift card from Tony. The gift game. Everyone draws numbers. Then gifts are picked in number order. If you don't like the gift you got, you can steal someone else's gift and then they pick what was going to be your gift for themselves. I was number 12. The best gift was a Barnes & Noble gift card. I stole it from Tony. He was kind of disappointed so I thought I would use part of the card to buy him a book. Tuesday is another errand day. Wednesday and Thursday are at Mom's. Friday is lunch with friend. Saturday is Mom's 96th birthday.
