I did a whole workweek upon my return from vacation. Thankfully it was a super short week, as Monday was a holiday and Friday was my regular Friday off. Even three days was a long week! Sometimes things at work just have a way of weighing me down; it was that kind of week.
It seems I brought the cold weather home, as we got a dusting of snow on Tuesday morning and then a couple of inches on Thursday. It is gone now, with the last of the snow washed away by heavy rain on Saturday afternoon. This picture doesn’t show as much snow as I got, as the big fir trees block most of the snow in that part of the yard.
Good thing I got my yard work done in the morning, before the rain started, but my next chore will be to tackle the parts of the yard that were still covered in snow yesterday. That’s the thing about the Pacific Northwest; it never gets cold enough or snowy enough for the yard work to stop, especially if you have a lot of trees in the yard like I do.
Other than the yard work, I’ve had a pretty lazy weekend; I finished a puzzle yesterday afternoon. This beauty!
Cora enjoyed “helping” with the puzzle, and both Cora and Yellow have enjoyed having lots of time to snuggle now that I’m home!
I need to get some laundry done – why do the chores never stop! Some purging… And get the house cleaned up in anticipation of the work week. A five day work week this time!
I am signing up for a 15K – the Hot Chocolate Run that I have done several years in a row. So far, one of my girlfriends will be doing it with me; I’m hoping more will sign up! I need to get back into shape, and there’s nothing like a little incentive.
Hopefully the spring weather and warmer temperatures will be here soon! I can’t wait!
