Today is just an all-around nice day.
First of all…
…our pellet stove is back up and running. So great! I really missed the stove for the week and a half that it was out of commission. It adds a great atmosphere to our living area. But also, we are used to the way that it heats the house. We turn it way down overnight, because both Harry and I like a cool area for sleeping. But even though we turned the electric heat down as well, both of us were hot almost every night. Last night it was so nice to be comfortable again!
The second awesome thing is that we didn’t get any more snow than we had in the pictures I posted yesterday. By mid-morning it was warming up a bit and by afternoon it was raining! It’s been a long time since I’ve been so happy to see rain.
This pretty unimpressive picture is to show that the grass is starting to get a little green. Yes it is! Look, real hard – in between the fence and the bush to the left. See it?
I found a few more flowers coming up in the back.
And the other reason that I am feeling great is that work is over for today, and I only have TWO more days to work before vacation!! woohoo!!
Here are Ariel and Crookshank enjoying their other favorite window sunny spot. They both love laying on blankets which makes it easier to keep them from leaving quite as much fur all over. We put one on the love seat, and an old blanket on each of the extra beds in the house, which catches a lot of their fur. It seems to work out pretty well.
I don’t know how they are going to like traveling. We are going to start acclimating them to riding in a vehicle this year, so that it won’t be something new next year when we have the fifth wheel. Our current plan is to put one of their blankets on the back seat of the truck for them to lay on. So we shall see how it goes this summer when we start taking them on short drives.
Tomorrow I am heading to a local craft show, so that should be fun. And also, Harry and I have to really start getting serious about packing!
Have a great day everyone!
