Wet Wednesday

Wet and cold, 39F, but apparently it's coming down as snow not far north. I must admit to actually being a bit jealous :)

Listening to a very interesting debate about the future of global news on Newshour on the 80th anniversary of the World Service.

Sunday afternoon constitutional

Sunny and brisk, 45F.

A lovely afternoon to do the long loop with the boy :)

Interesting Saturday

What odd weather!  41F and windy, with some quite strong gusts; the sky is mostly covered by low, fast-moving clouds, but where there's a gap it's bright blue; and right now it's snowing!

Miserable Friday

Not that cold, 40F, but drizzly and raw- I wish I'd brought gloves.

Shrove Tuesday

Just the short loop today I'm afraid as it's been a very busy day and I have to get back to finish setting up for the pancake supper. Overcast & 43F.

Sunday afternoon

And back in our woods after spending the weekend in the YMCA's woods at Greenkill- I wish I could have taken Holly, she would have loved it!

Coldish, 29F, but Holly still went in the stream, she is definitely feeling better :)

Snowy Saturday???

We were supposed to get 2-5" of snow last night and this morning, but it's 36F and what little sleet we got has already melted.

The good news is that I can now head upstate and join the Confirmation Retreat in time for dinner :)

Friday romp

A bit grey and cool, 44F, but we're supposed to get snow tonight (which unfortunately means I can't go on the Confirmation Retreat).

But I am very pleased to report that my dog is back and just as tennis ball crazy as ever :)

Tuesday short loop...

... With no tennis ball chasing as Holly is supposed to be resting- although she keeps looking at me expectantly!

Monday walk

Coolish, 50F.

Holly is still a little tentative about chasing her tennis ball (very
odd for her!) so I think we need to return to the vet tomorrow to see
if they can figure out what's wrong. She may still be sore from the
shots, but she's not limping at all; she looks all enthusiastic about
chasing the ball, but when I throw it she just stands and watches it.

Short loop at a nice gentle pace, Holly seems much better after her bad reaction to her shots yesterday, but she's still not 100%.
