My husband decided at the last minute to fly to Colorado to surprise his dad for his birthday this weekend. They’re having fun, and my FIL was indeed surprised! I’m glad it all worked out perfectly!
I was sad I couldn’t go, but tickets are expensive on a planned trip, little own a trip decided on with less than a week’s notice.
It’s been a little weird to be by myself for a few days. I’m really not sure why. I’m totally ok with being by myself for stretches. Things feel differently, especially without Newt around. There’s a glaring absence of him guarding the yard and barking just to stir up some action.
The rest of our crew is older, except for Jo, who is maybe 5? We don’t really know The Real Age of any of our pups as they have all been strays. Oh wait: Zola and Boo were picked up at a local shelter by my mom. But, then they decided to move in with us ( my mom lives next door, and we share a fenced yard) LOL
The weather has been pretty nice. A front came through Friday, and this weekend it’s been sunny with highs of about 55. Gorgeous. I wish the time hadn’t changed back so we could enjoy more sunlight in the evening and the cooler temps.
I wasn’t too productive this weekend, overall. I cleaned the house (basics only), made some chili, watched some shows I haven’t had the time for recently. There’s just this next week until Thanksgiving break, and it can’t come soon enough. While I do enjoy my work, it’s been trying for all kinds of reasons. I also think it feels harder the closer a break comes! 🙂
I had 3 of the dogs in jackets this morning; our thin SE Texas blood makes 40 degrees seem very cold! All 3 were happy with them. Pico needs a new one, but he’s an awkward size, so ordering online never works. The jackets he has are hand-me-downs; he LOVES his jackets.
Halloween decorations are put up, but I couldn’t bring myself to pull out Christmas items. It may just be a tree this year. My brother and SIL will visit before Christmas, but it will just be me, my mom, and hubby for Christmas day. No big dinner or other guests. Then, husband heads back to Colorado for a week December 26th. Thinking just a few decorations will do it.
I hope everyone is having a good weekend. And here’s to a great week for us all. Take care, friends. Peace -b
