Feels Like A Monday

With the kids off from school yesterday, today kind of feels like a Monday. I had a hard time remembering to put the garbage out this morning! When I woke up this morning, I discovered that the dog had gotten sick in the night. What a mess! I had to give him a bath before taking the kids to school. Not a fun start to the day, but thankfully Toby seems to be feeling better now. I'll be keeping an eye on him today.
 
Three of the kids went fishing with their grandpa yesterday. Unfortunately, they didn't catch any fish. They had quite the little adventure running out of gas, drifting to a neighbor's dock, and borrowing gas to get back home. Thankfully they weren't stranded out in the middle of the lake! They actually had a lot of fun, I think.

We have had the prettiest weather here the last couple of days. Right now the sun is shining, and there are even a few flowers blooming around the yard.
Cooler weather is supposed to move in tonight, so we'll see whether or not the flowers last a few more days. I think I'm going to get my boots out and wear them while it's cold. I'm sure January lows in the 30's and highs in the 50's sound pleasant to my Northern friends, but that's VERY cold for this Florida girl who is used to summer temps ten months out of the year. I hope you stay warm, wherever you are!

We're expecting 20 degree temps tonight with some snow. However, we never get the snow they predict. ;)
Eww...so sorry about having to clean up after the pup. I've also done my share of that. Glad they didn't get stranded way out. My Dad took us out when I was a teen and ran out of gas, too. Thankfully, people on the lake were always willing to help anyone out, and towed us in to the marina. From one Florida gal to another, stay warm!

Well here in eastern NY we are experiencing a high of 11 today and tonite is supposed to be -10. Up where I often hike it was -12 at 5 pm!! But we only have a couple of inches of snow on the ground. Where my daughter goes to college (Gordon College on the north shore of boston) they are supposed to get 5-8 inches of snow. Where my inlaws live on the south shore of MA they are supposed to get 18 inches tonite into tomorrow....a blizzard has been forecast!! so.....enjoy those southern temps cause to us, that's our norm for January!! LOL That is awesome though that your kids got to go fishing!! Enjoy the week and stay cozy...and pray for us that our cars will start in the morning!!

Oh those flowers warm my heart. I enjoy all 4 seasons but I do miss my flowerbed in the winter! we're in the middle of a snowstorm right now - it's very cosy with the woodfire blazing!

Hope your dog is feeling better!
