This & That

A lovely summer scene but unfortunately summer is avoiding western Pa.  It was darned chilly here this weekend; in the 60's. 38 overnight and it's the 11th of June.  Where oh where is summer this year?  I've been reconsidering even opening my pool this year.  I'm going to wait and see.  Three years ago we had a summer like this....rain and chill the whole time.  It was a waste to keep the pool going.  We rarely had a chance to use it.

Tomorrow the Sears guy is bringing my compressor for my AC anytime between 8-5 again.  They will call before they leave the place before mine.  My BF is coming over to let them in.  Not that I'm going to need it much but at least it will be fixed for now.

My monitor arrived on Tuesday but I have to get Joey to hook it up.  I probably could manage to follow the wires but really don't feel like messing with it.

My house is beginning to shape up slowly but surely.  I have a couple of things I want to get done this evening and then it's time to prepare for work again.  LOL..the weekend flies when you know you have a full week ahead.

My BF and I went to Days Inn last night but only had one drink.  We went back to his place and watched an older movie on DVD.  Just Cause with Sean Connery and Lawrence Fishburne (sp).  Really it was an excellent movie.  Kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time with a twist at the end.  I think I did mention he has a sinus infection again and he said that he doesn't miss work but really misses seeing me.  We really don't get to see a whole lot of each other anymore.  He's so cute.  He shows up at the bus stop after work to see what I'm wearing. He was a little down in the dumps the other night; not feeling well and had some other issues he was dealing with and missing me.  I was touched.  The past couple of months have been filled with so many changes for both of us.

I spent my afternoon at Wally World grocery shopping and wandering around looking for some bargains.  I did find the cutest black peasant skirt on sale.  It was super long and since I'm tall; perfect.  I'm surprised that I've mananged to pick up a couple of really cute things there for next to nothing.

Joey was gone since Thurs.  He went with his friends to Cook's Forest, north of here.  His one friend's family has a summer home there.  Megan worked a lot so I had some real peace and quiet.

I just read in Deb's journal that Betty has returned and started her journal once again....whoo hoo.  Welcome back, Betty!  You were greatly missed.  A corgi in Southern California

Pretty much a quiet, chilly day.  Peace & Blessings to all!!!!

I love it that your bf is missing you and a bit lonely. He knows how beautiful you are and what a catch you are too.
My house looks like a cyclone went thru it. :(
It was cold here in Ohio. I am cold right now. Rained all weekend too. Have a happy Monday.
love you,lisa

Ryan and I watched a movie together yesterday afternoon....Mars Attacks. lol  It was so funny and surprisingly I had never seen it.  Has lots of great actors in it.  I can't believe it is so cold there.  We are steaming and now we have a tropical depression.  The first of hurricane season.  Have a good week Chris! Hugs and GBU, Shelly

Glad your sweetheart is being such a doll.  Are you gonna marry that guy?  I don't think I ever heard you talk about that, but of course I haven't been in JLand very long.

Oh! What's that about wedding bells?  Did I hear (read) right?  Just teasing....see how rumours get started! LOL  That's sweet that he's missing you though.....aww comes to the bus stop just to see how you look!  Sounds like something my Darrell would do!  

Glad your new job is going well.  Gosh, I just don't get it!  When we're at the old job "Everything" is so imperative that it gets done!  Now the files are piling up??!! Where's the rush now?  Eeek...I can't get started on that!

Take Care!
Hugs!

Hi Chris....
You left me like 10 comments! I was so excited!  Thanks for doing that! You really didn't have to, you know!  But I do appreciate it with all my heart!  You are a good friend to me!  

Your boyfriend sounds so cute!  I need to find me one of them!  It is quiet when the kids are gone or working, isn't it?  I know it is around here!  And now that both the twins are working too, it seems like no one is ever home!  sigh...sad really.

Have a fun week!  And I really do hope you get to open that pool of yours up!  
Love, Linda
