Upper 60s Today
The vet just called and said that Badger is doing MUCH better this morning! I may get to bring him home this evening. I am so relieved! He will have to stay confined at least through the weekend, but that's okay. At least he will be home. :D Neither Dewey nor I know how to act without my little sweet-faced fella (see first picture, all pictures enlarge with a click) here with us. :) Needless to say, the vet's call with good news started my Friday off on a wonderful note!!
Yesterday evening, Dewey and I took a quick stroll down to the water's edge to see how close our dock is to floating, and I saw my first Johnny-JumpUp of the season. I was soooo excited, but I didn't have my camera with me. So I'll be out searching for that tiny little blossom today so I can "record" exactly when they start popping up in the spring. Those little flowers have always heralded spring for me, even more so than the daffodils.
My friend Evonne, her hubby, and her MIL stopped by for a short visit yesterday evening. That was a greatly-needed bright spot in an otherwise worrisome day! I had not met Bobby's Mom before, and she's just precious. She's sewn all of her life, and still does some quilting. She took an older Singer sewing machine home with her to see if she can get the tension straightened out on it. Someone had given it to me months ago. I think it's from the 60s or 70s. Definitely NOT a Featherweight--this thing weighs an absolute TON. LOL Bobby has a Featherweight, tho, that he would sell me for $200. I just need to round up the funds and I can join the FW groupies. LOL
