Well! Here I am, on vacation! But I don’t feel like it yet. Of course, it’s only been a couple of hours. I probably drove my co-workers crazy today, because I couldn’t seem to resist keeping my attention at least partially fixed on the passage of time throughout the day, and mentioned a number of hours left in the workday probably once or twice.
I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures tonight, but I have definitely noticed a change in our lawn’s appearance over the past couple of days. We raked it on Sunday, so that helped, but then, even better, it rained most of Monday and Tuesday. So things have been greening up! I will take some new pictures tomorrow. Another sign of spring – we came home today to a flyer stuck in our mailbox letting us know that a bear has been sighted in our neighborhood again. Presumably the same bear – remember me mentioning him or her last year? We must be their favorite springtime haunt with good stuff for “spring breakfast” in our garbage cans. Well, our development, not us specifically – one thing about having cats – no self-respecting bear is going to forage for their meal out of our garbage can.
Tonight I will just be hanging out and relaxing, but tomorrow, it is really time to start packing – I don’t think I can procrastinate any longer!!
