My house inspector Nathan was by again early this morning for a short visit and grooming session. However, he had to rush out and run a stray off the property. Priorities are priorities after all. (I feed the stray on occasion. Several neighbours do too. It is our hope to tame him up enough to scoop him off to the humane society.)
Yesterday afternoon I walked over to the pool with Miss Emma and her mom in the pouring rain. Emma did a good deal of ring fetching from the bottom of the kiddie pool. She and I set up courses for each other involving underwater turns. And we did some quality splashing about. After some coaching, I passed my swimming lesson. Then off to the big pool for some serious swimming. Emma did 54 strokes of back crawl in 4 goes. Impressive! And on our walk home, Emma invited me over for tea and cookies. Bonus!
We’re back to more seasonal temperatures for a bit, but no worries. With daylight savings and the disappearing snow cover, it is a given that spring is on its way!
