Despite a lousy night of sleep (like awake EVERY hour!), I'm in an excellent mood. When I first came into the office and opened email I saw that my boss had asked me to cancel our 11 a.m. conference call! This is absolutely my worst call, so I am thrilled. I still have a call at 8:30, but that is a very quick one. Happy, happy!
Forgot to mention about the cats traveling to TX yesterday. I know I said they arrived safely (thank goodness). When I asked Colin how they did, his reply text was that Marcel was very well behaved but that Talbot howled the entire way! I can only imagine how thrilled the other passengers were. By now I'm sure they are settling in to their new digs. And, they have a balcony - the cats will love that.
Colin texted last night asking if we could go over to the house today for a few last minute things. Not sure what those "things" are, but we will venture over. That will give us a chance to get the clothes we left there too.
Yesterday I did walk along the canal in the afternoon. The canal was frozen over.
Pretty patterns on the ice. The river (Schuylkill) on the other side of the trail was not frozen. Water still moving pretty quickly.
The trail was pretty mucky - muddy and icy at the same time. I realized I must have been stepping gingerly in places because my back and legs were killing me by the time I got home.
Up by Fitzwater Station where they rent canoes and kayaks (and have a good restaurant with great beer choices!), there was a bit of open water on the canal. Ducks and geese were in the water and also sitting on the ice (cold bums).
I'm hoping to get out again today...this time maybe going back to Oaks to see if the trail is open to where the sinkhole was or not. Our temps today are still forecast to be mild (40's possibly), but by tomorrow those temps will plummet. Tomorrow's high is only supposed to be 22! But, I think the forecast for snow/ice/etc. has been modified and I believe it will just be rain now on Monday. Or, perhaps a bit of snow Sunday night, but not the amount that had originally been predicted.
Looking forward to tomorrow when Dee and I will meet up for coffee, knitting and chatting. Yay! We have not gotten together since right before Christmas (since I was exposed to Covid, we were being very cautious).
And now I had another nice thought: Monday is a holiday for me (work-wise) - MLK day. I do have an eye appointment in the afternoon, but nothing else planned. A long weekend is just what the doctor ordered!! Hope yours is a good one.
