Of Dogs & Days Off

Dear John,
 
I had a busy day off yesterday. I took Maggie in for her yearly vet check-up and vaccines. She's doing wonderfully, and weighs seven pounds now - not bad for being less than a pound when Jethro found her! When I got home, I went through the bathroom cabinets and drawers. I threw out some outdated stuff, moved some to the linen closet, and reorganized the rest. The last time I went through everything in the bathroom was when I moved your things out of the bathroom, well over three years ago, so it was time. It looks and works much better.
 
I did some other housework then settled down to knit in the evening. I was so tired when I got ready for bed! I sat down to write to you and found that my brain had quit for the night. I just stared blankly at the screen for a bit, then decided neither of us would benefit from anything I'd manage to say. So I turned out the light. At least, I guess I did. I don't remember doing that, but it was off this morning.
 
We had a busy Friday at work, with Labor Day weekend upon us. We seemed to get a lot of our Saturday traffic today, probably because people have travel plans for the weekend. We're all in favor of a slower day tomorrow. On the down side, we had no more bats. It's a shame.
 
We've had some thunder tonight and the power went off for a bit around 7:40. The radar has shown rain for the last three hours, but none of it has reached the ground. Jethro is responding to the thunder in his usual manner - crawling all over me. It is extremely difficult to type with a big dog head on your right arm. The cats, on the other hand, are chasing each other up and down the hall.  I do hope they let me sleep. I have the fan on to muffle the thunder a bit.
 
Sleep good tonight. I love you so much, and still miss you the most at bedtime. Your little family loves you.
 
Adore you,
Joan.
