This is Raven. Her family is on vacation for a couple of days, so I've been keeping an eye on her. When the weather is a decent temperature, she is all over the place. However, when it's like it has been this week, she is under the deck. It's really kind of funny. She has dug out a cool spot for herself and will bark like she means business. However, she's no dummy! She won't come out for anything! She's been eating okay, but she's not drinking like I think she needs to. I'm glad her mom and dad are coming home so they can worry about her instead of me! Next week I get to take care of our other neighbors place. I am the official neighborhood watch.
RL came home Tuesday night. What a great sight he was for sore eyes! I had missed him soooo much! His a/c went out somewhere in Georgia and he looked miserably hot by the time we saw him. A cold shower, a cold coke, a good dinner and he was as good as new. His truck is protesting the long trip and refused to start this morning, but I don't think he minded too much. It just meant he got to take the car - with the working a/c! His Dad seems to be doing very well. He was sick a couple of times while RL was there but is still able to be out and about most of the time. They went to the beach and watched the shuttle go up. When you live on the space coast of Florida all your life, you kind of take the shuttle for granted. You watch it from your driveway and listen to your windows rattle shortly after take off. When you live 600 miles away, you forget just how special all that is. I think they enjoyed being able to watch it right on the ocean. He got to catch up with his brothers and one of his college buds. He worked his butt off trying to get as much done for his parents as he could and they truly appreciated it. But I appreciate him being back home!
Yes, I'm still knitting. I've got one sock almost finished and will start on its mate soon. L has requested a dice bag for his D&D dice, so I need to get that going soon. I've got all kinds of things I want to do - just have to find the time!
