The sunset on Friday looked like a warning. The storms didn’t arrive until Saturday night and dumped two inches of rain while we slept. That’s the way I like it. We need the rain but I’m glad I didn’t get blown away during all of my running around over the weekend. Gina and I went to the most beautiful bridal shower and the two days flew by. I did manage to schedule time for an hour nap each day. It was heavenly! Naps should be a requirement for healthy living.
Bella took a ride to the vet for a manicure. She’s the only dog I’ve owned that sits in the passenger seat quietly without standing at the window and watching the world go by. I encourage her to enjoy the scenery and savor the smells of fast food wafting through the air. No. She keeps her eye on me and the floor of the car. Sweet thang…
What a sissy man-dog. Mr. Biggins loves to visit and I don’t know why. My two girls play mind games with him and his treatment here is quite pathetic from a guy’s point of view. They tease him with toys and rip them away before he knows what happened. He just loves the females, no matter what!
Chloe is missing from this post. I’ll be sure to include my lovely old girl next time (as if she knows it…). Sorry, Chloe!
Gina and Billy bought a house and will go to settlement early June! One of the highlights in my lifetime was buying “our first house”. As to be expected, they are feeling overwhelmed and scared but they are very excited at the same time. I wonder how many hours they've spent in the home stores and furniture stores, dreaming of what they will do to make this house into their first home and castle.
I met them at the house this morning with their agent while they took window measurements and signed the final contract. Gina contracted ME to help do a thorough cleaning and put some paint on the walls before they move in. Billy and Michael will take care of the garage stuff, fence, and lighting things… I’m anxious to help them with some landscaping and…perhaps…a bird feeder station as her first housewarming gift. She said, “Mom! No feeders! I need blinds on the bathroom and bedroom windows first!” I understand that, but how can they resist seeing this from their kitchen window?
Or how about this view of an overweight Mourning Dove and a Red Winged Blackbird sucking the feeders dry? Ugh.
She’s getting a feeder from me and she’ll like it. My rule.
This morning the weather seemed calm and warm despite heavy storm clouds passing through. Later in the afternoon, the temperature dropped twenty-five degrees in one hour and we were pelted with heavy rain, wind, and hail. Very strange.
