It's time for a new post, even though there isn't a whole lot to write about.
Spring has sprung here in New Hampshire. Last weekend George raked up the front yard and it is starting to look pretty good out there. There is a little greenery sprouting there thanks to the torrential rains we had Tuesday and Wednesday. I've thought up a project for my husband, too. The back deck is rather boring so I am going to have him build some flower boxes and mount them to the deck rail so I can plant some pretty flowers and dress it up a bit. I've also got a few ideas for the front of the house but since I have only been living here 6 months, I am not sure what may be planted out there.
It's very sunny and about 60 degrees here today but tomorrow promises to be a lot warmer. I am certainly ready for that. The past winter was a long one and even though I am not a huge fan of humid weather, I do enjoy the warm sun. I hope to be able to get outside and enjoy the sun this weekend.
I had the day off today and I had to take Hunter to the Vet for another blood test. Last month his red blood count level was low so we needed to get a recheck. I just called the office and the results were good...his levels are back at a normal level and he is perfectly fine. Just makes me shake my head because I can't help thinking it is just a plot to get more money out of me. I know I am being ridiculous and we don't always 'see' if something is wrong, especially with our animals, but it's always something, isn't it? Don't mind me...I'm just a skeptic by nature. But I had a feeling there was nothing wrong with him.
Hunter wasn't very co-operative this morning, either. He would not sit still and it took 2 adults to hold him down so the doctor could draw the blood. (He is only 13 lbs.) As it was, he managed to wiggle free before Dr. Ware was ready and that caused him to bleed a bit more than normal since we had to wrestle him down again to apply pressure to the area. He finally calmed down enough for me to clean him up. All that red blood in his white fur was a bit scary looking.
Once I got him back at home, he was fine and went right to his hiding spot in the spare bedroom and took a long nap. He is now out on the back deck soaking up the sunshine. I've got a load of laundry to fold and then I am going to join him.
Not too much going on around here. Everyone is healthy and happy. We haven't seen much of Patrick since we stopped Renee from sleeping here. In fact, he hasn't slept here one night since that night but he comes home from time to time to do his laundry and take a shower. Tonight we are meeting him for dinner in a couple of hours.
Jon and Nikki are home from their honeymoon but we've only talked to them once since they got back. The only one of George's kids who calls and stops by is Nicole and we hear from her a couple times a week. She dropped some books off for me on Wednesday and tomorrow we are going to take the grandkids for a few hours so she and Matt can go out with some friends.
My kids are both doing ok. Eric is still unemployed but he keeps looking. Sara is doing just fine.
I am heading out to get that laundry dealt with and catch some sun before George gets home from work. Hope everyone is having a good day. Get outside this weekend if you can and enjoy the fresh air!
