We had a smattering of snow...
...with freezing temps.
Almost impossible to catch pictures of the grouse or jackrabbits lately because they all seem to suffering from spring fever and race everywhere they go.
One day something was perched in the bottom branches of this tree across the way. Medium sized. Would have had to be a big grouse...or a small hawk? No clue. My camera can't help me, either, because this was as close as I could get through the screen.
Suddenly it was spring! Poof! 64 degrees with little wind on Saturday and almost as warm on Sunday!
Went to take a picture of the melting snowbanks across the way and caught a lone grouse running down the sidewalk--LOL!
On sunny mornings Karma is no longer interested in sitting next to me in her chair.
She's been catching sunshine! I'd been able to crack the door open for a short while a couple times last week...
...and then came the spring-like weekend!
Patio door and windows opened wide all afternoon--whoohoo!
Karma didn't want to leave the patio door.
She snoozed right close so she would miss any grouse or rabbits as they raced past.
Unbelievable to have it this warm in the beginning of March!
Miss Karma...rubbing her own head on the carpet in delight...
...but not missing walkers and/or dogs going by, either.
It's 39 right now and supposed to stay in the 40s and 50s for the next week or so. Crazy!
My sleep pattern has moved to a later shift the past couple weeks for some reason, so I am going to be in big trouble when nasty old daylight savings time takes effect next weekend. I will either be up even later and sleeping even later or it will magically snap me backwards in time--LOL! But that's why I am getting such a late start today.
Leah and Ian came by for a visit last Wednesday afternoon. Got to read Ian some of his new books here at Gramma's house. :) Thursday Leah came over for Craft Night (always fun!). But I was so sore by Friday that I only got four hours of sleep, didn't go check out Movie Night here in the community room, and was in bed by 9pm. But I slept 11 hours! Whoohoo!
I've been sleeping longer every night since and have gotten a lot done around here. Just puttering about stuff. Laundry, sweeping, trash out, cleaning both my humidifiers, cleaning and relabeling my coffee jars...stuff like that. :) Maybe I have a touch of spring fever, too--LOL!
Today is dark and kind of misty rainy.
Rain--yes, rain--not snow.
Could be a busy week. Tonight is the monthly pot luck. (Missed the first one last month-sick--just have some bakery cookies again.) Tomorrow Leah is planning to come over for Craft Night. Thursday afternoon they have that exercising to a video group in the afternoon and Friday is Movie Night. I'm going to try to make it to as many of the activities here this week as I am able...without pushing myself over the brink--LOL! Sadly--doesn't take much. But it looks hopeful that I might be able to make the PotLuck tonight. :)
And for the T-Stands For Tuesday group over at Elizabeth's--I don't even have my red cup sitting next to me yet because while I have been typing this I have been jumping up and down to slowly make some coffee--LOL! Starbucks Verona. (Enough appliances in that corner?)
So if this post is a bit wonky...you can blame it on my lack of coffee--hehe! I had best post this before it gets any later...and go pour myself some coffee!! :) :)
