Seems as if that nasty flu bug is working it's way out of here. Brock is back to normal, Jari is feeling a bit better, and I went to work yesterday ... with Ibuprofen onboard. We were finished early, too many staff (wow!?), so I volunteered to leave shortly after 2 pm. I love extra gifts of moments. It was like I was given an extra 2 hours of time yesterday. They bought me: 2 naps, 2 trips to town, 4 loads of laundry, catch up long distance phone chat with a dear friend, yummy dinner, and 2 hours of PTO instead of 8. Not bad.
The forecast is for snow for the next 4 days. I've learned a little about weather forecasts. In Phoenix they were: today will be sunny and hot. Now they sort of have to predict when those clouds might dump something and it seems to be a bit difficult. Murphy's Law prevailed tho'. If we don't haul up wood, it will snow. We want snow, but we would really like some wood as well. So the boys were busy for a while yesterday afternoon.
My naps were punctuated with music. We have this chair in the living room that is super comfy for nap taking. The other one won't fit in here and is on the screen porch. Anna was determined to learn Canon in D yesterday and I felt like I was being serenaded with music. She is really good and is doing it on her own ... without an instructor. I'm so proud of her!
