Not a whole lot to post today. My week has been busy and productive but not very interesting.
It's my Friday off and I got to sleep in until about 7 this morning. Not too bad considering I was asleep by 10.
The weather has begun to co-operate around here and yesterday it was a whopping 72 degrees. It's not going to get that warm today, naturally, but it is sunny out right now and the rain isn't coming in until alter this afternoon. All traces of snow are gone from the back yard and the front has just a little bit left in the area where all the snow was piled up from the snow plow. It's really dirty and yucky looking too so I hope it goes away by the end of the weekend. I noticed yesterday when I took a walk around the property that my little pine tree got damaged from the weight of the snow. I planted that a couple of years ago on the side of the house after a car accident took out my other tree there. I think it will be ok but it was a main branch that snapped in two. It just looks kind of pitiful. The daffodils are starting to show now and my tulips are coming along too. I really need to get out back and rake up the leaves that never got raked up last November. I can probably get to some of the yard but there is still a lot of wet muddy areas out there. My dad has been calling almost every week wanting to come up and get the yard cleaned up. It is supposed to rain all weekend so this won't be a good weekend for that chore but hopefully soon.
With the nicer temperatures, I haven't had to turn the furnace on for about a week. I think I cranked it one morning when I got up to get the chill out of the house but that's about it. It is chilly in here right now but I have a sweater on and am drinking some hot tea so that should help keep me warm for the time being.
Sara is coming home tonight and she is planning to spend the weekend here. She has a fancy wedding to go to next weekend and she needs to shop for a dress so I guess I have been designated to go shopping with her on Saturday. Her boyfriend's brother is getting married on the Cape which is a very affluent area of Massachusetts and everyone will be dressed to the nines. Even though Sara isn't in the bridal party, Brad's mother took her along with all the other girls to a day at the spa last weekend. They had their nails done and went tanning, had massages, the whole spa treatment. Tonight Sara is getting her hair cut and highlighted (or whatever it's called) and then tomorrow we will shop for a dress. Yeah I know, she always waits until the last minute to do everything. But she insists that's when she gets the best deals. Whatever...I just hope she plans on buying me lunch too! LOL
I have to get a shower soon though and get started on my errands. I have to go to the pharmacy and then get something for George's grand daughter for her 4th birthday. Thank goodness I have friends who are grandmothers, cos I have no idea what little kids are into these days.
I hope you are all having a great day!
