After three weeks of gorgeous above-average temperatures, yesterday, it was actually quite cool (for us). This coming week is traditionally Spring Break and it’s below average every day and even a whisper or two of a few drops of rain. They surprised Mother Nature by have Spring Break last week. It was 87 here on Wednesday. The kids were delighted.
We talked with our pet sitter and got the next two years lined up for vacations and whatnot (you have to get on her calendar early. She was a little worried because she’d raised her rates, but it’s still worth it. We hadn’t talked since around Christmas, so it was nice to catch up with her. She’s all vaccinated, so she is ready and able to jump right back in. It’s nice to be able to think about such things again.
I am holding my breath to see if the gardeners return today to rip out the rest of our plants. We spent most of Saturday cleaning up and reporting stuff. So far, everything seems to be doing okay and the cats were delighted to have some plants back on the back porch (they love to hide behind them and watch). Another small step towards getting back to normal or whatever passes for it these days
I hope you all had a lovely weekend filled with food and laughter. Onward ho!
