Here we are at Tuesday again which feels more like a Monday since I had yesterday off for President's Day. Last week was a short work week but it seemed really long because things were crazy busy. I was just glad it ended early and with a nice long weekend. We've been enjoying the Olympics and also watching in awe at all the crazy winter storms the rest of the nation is experiencing. What a weird weather year it's shaping up to be! While our lack of rain here in Calif. is no good I think I'd rather be here in the warm sun then stuck in some of the ice storms others are dealing with. Let's just hope I don't pay too much for it later.
At any rate here is how we spent last week:
Day 41- Monday, 2/10/14
I'm sitting here at work waiting on our cryo tanks to fill. They have to be topped off once a month and we have 3 of them so it takes me about 20-30 minutes to get through them all.
Last week was conferences so this week it's awards. I had to miss Justin's assembly yesterday because it was in the morning which is really the middle of my work day, but I was able to attend Brandon's today because his was in the afternoon at the end of my day. Both boys are doing great and make me proud.
Day 43- Wednesday, 2/12/14
This is how Rusty greets me when I get home from work. He likes to rub up on my legs and then stand and stretch like he's scratching on a tree trunk or something. His face looks mean here, but he's just concentrating and actually really happy to see me. LOL!
Day 44- Thursday, 2/13/14
I was able to get out at lunch and take a stroll through the arboretum on campus. There are actually quite a few flowers in bloom which is pretty to see but also a reminder of how we've pretty much fast forwarded through winter this year. After the good rain dumping a week ago we really haven't had much more :0/
Happy Valentine's Day! John brought home some dinner, we exchanged gifts, toasted to our love, and then we all enjoyed a brownie ice-cream heart dessert--Yum! It was a nice evening and a great way to start the weekend. The kids had no school today so they didn't have any class parties for Valentine's this year which seemed weird. I missed helping them fill out cards.
Day 46- Saturday, 2/15/14
The Placer County Wine Trail had a wine and treat tasting event so we went to check it out with Sharon and Richie. It was a lot of fun, and we get to continue to use our glasses for free tastings through March--Score!
Day 47- Sunday, 2/16/14
Yesterday was grey and gloomy, but today was bright and sunny so it was a perfect day for a bike ride. I had 2 eager riders join me on a cruise around the neighborhood to finally test out my new bike which is quite smooth. Love it!
That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join me again next week.
