The calendar says spring, the weather- not so much. Chilly today, with snow- again!- forecasted for Tuesday into Wednesday.

Bob the Cat turned out to be Roberta the Cat- and she was in heat! She's now spayed, had her shots, and is chipped. She wants to be friends, but is too afraid to let us pet her. She's getting closer and closer, tho. She and Sly play with the sliding door between them. 

We had a nice, tho short, visit with Steph last weekend. She was in for business meetings, and extended her trip to spend a few days here. Since my Easter break was cut to make up snow days, I can't go to Portland to help her pick a wedding dress, so we went shopping here. It worked out well- Heather and Julianna went with us. Steph had a good idea of what she wanted, and she picked a beautiful dress. And Julianna got a flower girl dress and headpiece. It was a nice day.

Heather, Ed, Eddie and Julianna, along with Honey Rose the dog, the duck and the chicken, moved into their new house yesterday. They've been moving things all week, but the furniture went yesterday. Luckily it's only a mile from the house they were renting, so they could take their time. Steph and I got to tour the new house last week, and it's super nice. The kids will ride different busses, but they'll be in the same schools. 

Last Monday Ralph was helping shovel out the recycle truck, which was stuck on our hill- yes, it snowed again. He slipped and fell flat on his back. That evening he felt funny, and we went off to Camp Cooper to get him checked. They collared him, and did and MRI which thank goodness was negative, so they discharged him on meds. We got home at 4 a.m. Luckily I was signed up for an inservice, so I didn't have to go into work. I went to the inservice, and just kept getting up and walking around. It ended at 1.30, and I was home and in bed by 2.30! 

I finished the star shaped afghan that I made for Julianna for her birthday. It was interesting to do. I have to decide what my next project is. 

And so it goes!
