Another chilly start to the day - it's only in the 20's, but there are signs of Spring! More of those later, but how was your weekend? Ours was good. Dee came down with a nasty bug of some kind last week, so we did not get together on Saturday. I missed our time together, but was glad not to be exposed to anything. Hope you are feeling much, much better Dee.
Becaue I know you all have inquiring minds - lol - here is the Mabel update. She is fine. And no, we did not last 5 days with her inside. We lasted about 48 hours! Saturday morning was pretty miserable weather-wise. It poured rain, but it was mild (60's). Late afternoon the sun came out and Fletch and I decided to sit outside and enjoy the afternoon. Mabel made it pretty clear she needed to be out as well. We had not noticed her limping or hopping, so decided to let her out. She was running around as crazy as ever and not favoring that paw, so I guess all is ok. We are keeping her in at night and are continuing to pay attention to how she is walking, but all seems good.
The weather turned again - abruptly - just after dinner. The winds picked up and a rather large and noisy thunderstorm moved in. Multiple flashes of lightening and very loud thunder. The winds were howling ALL night. Turns out we were close (maybe in) a tornado watch area and one actually touched down about 7 miles from where my friend Carol lives. Particularly frightening since she lives in a mobile home.
Before the weather turned nasty and while Fletch and I were outside on Saturday I saw some signs of Spring!
As mentioned above, we leave for vacation next Saturday. Over the weekend I managed to put away the wool sweaters and bring out warmer weather tops and shorts. We will be heading South, so I wanted to be sure I could pack some warm weather clothes.
Even though I am now on FTO instead of PTO and there are no "holidays" per se, my office (corporate office) is still observing that holidays we have had in the past. So, this is a 4 day work week for me! Woo-Hoo. I have Friday off for Spring Observance (really Good Friday, but we are not supposed to say that). Then I will be off all the following week plus the Monday after.
I've got a conference call at 10 and have some errands to run. Otherwise it should be an easy day (fingers crossed). Here's hoping your Monday is off to a great start!
