I'm Back!





















Hello friends! Hope all is well with all of you. We've been away since last week, up at our 'home away from home' in the mountains. We got another property to cover ours so we could be away and not have to worry about the apartment complex at all (which is a very necessary break every so often). It was nice being away even though it POURED Sat night through Tuesday morning! Then the temperature dropped and we had snow & hail showers around dinner time last night. It got down to 32° too! More oddball weather this morning while we were packing up to come home. (Rain, snow & hail all at the same time while it was sunny in one direction and cloudy in the other).
Yes, that Is the resident Swan hanging out with us by the fire last night! She's taken quite the liking to us and seems to like to spend time near us even if we don't feed her (which we do often enough) though I know she's just hoping we'll feed her anyway. The resident Mallard couple stops by, often with her, as well but only during day light hours. She's a beautiful (and enormous!) creature.
Tomorrow's iv med day in the afternoon. I hope it doesn't wear me out too much as the book club meet up is also tomorrow, at 7pm and I'd like to go. (Have to be careful though - I'm supposed to avoid contact with & exposure to groups in enclosed settings immediately after and for 72 hours). Guess I'll just have to wait & see!
That's all for now! More catching up coming soon.

Wow! That's cool the swan will get so close. My grandparent's had "pet" swans at their house (they lived on a lake.) My grandfather pictured two peaceful swans gliding around the cove. No such luck! They were so mean! They would go after you and try to corner you on the beach.

Crazy weather. We're having our fair share of odd weather. It was in the mid 90s yesterday and today it's in the high 60s, very low 70s and super windy. And rain this weekend. Typical Spring all the way around!

Hope all is well!

I had no idea swans liked to warm their tail feathers! That is cool!

Jo said...

Typical Spring here too Lizzi though I'm still getting used to the weather up north. Things are good and I hope the same with you! (This Swan isn't mean, just a little overly impatient when she thinks you have food for her & you're not feeding it to her fast enough - just ask my right Reebok sneaker, lol!)

After all the wacky weather, the torrential rains followed by just plan cold, she was as tired of it all as we were Lisa!
