Spring Interrupted

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.
