When the week begins, you just never know what it will bring. Monday was uneventful, but Tuesday clobbered us with a severe storm that knocked out our power. There is nothing like a power outage to let you know how unprepared you are for one.
Of course, the dogs didn't care about any of that. But it was easy to tell they were a bit confused about the change in routine that evening. and they weren't crazy about flashlights (and my camera) flashing in their faces.
The power came back on in the early hours of Wednesday morning. However we have been without a stable, reliable or fast internet connection until today. I've missed not getting a "full dose of internet" but we're just grateful that was all we lost. Some have sadly not been as fortunate.
With my eyes off the computer screen, on Thursday my eyes caught this little one wandering around our yard. Smaller than a can of soda, I worried that he was too young to be adventuring on his own. I called a wildlife rehab center and they told me that indeed he was. They told me to catch him (I have a net) and bring him into them if I see him again. Fortunately I haven't, and I'm hopeful that he had just wandered a little too far away from his family and they've moved on.
This weekends highlight has been meeting good friends at a nearby winery for a picnic and wine tasting. It was an enjoyable and relaxing afternoon,
It was just what we needed, and I so hope we are back on track for the coming week!
With our internet problems, I'm sorry I've not been able to drop by your blogs -- I look forward to catching up on your news!
