Mother Nature is playing mean tricks on us again. After a bout of lovely spring-like weather in February and the first week of March, we've been plunged back into winter with a cold, dreary, rainy day. There's a possibility of frost, and possibly some snow flurries, for parts of the state tonight and early tomorrow, which could be very bad news for all the trees and plants that have been tricked into blooming early by the warm temperatures.
There isn't much going on, we've been lazy. Victoria did go to the vet yesterday for her six month check up and to get her heartworm meds. She did her usual thing at the vet's- barking her head off, even though she doesn't bark much at all elsewhere. I guess she can smell all the other dogs and cats that have been in the waiting area, and can't resist commenting in the noisiest way possible. At any rate, we usually get called in ahead of other patients- probably because they get tired of listening to her carry on. As soon as she gets in the examining room she's her old quiet self again. I've often wondered if a similar tactic would work for us humans to speed things up in the doctor's office, but I'm hesitant to try barking for fear I might end up under observation in a mental health facility.
Tomorrow is supposed to be chilly but rain-free so we shall probably venture forth to the Publix to stock up on groceries for the week. Tonight we set the clocks forward for Daylight Savings Time. I have a feeling it might take me awhile to get my internal clock reset, so I'm going to cut this blog post short and go to bed earlier tonight in an attempt to lose as little sleep time as possible. Sweet dreams.
