This beautiful bloom comes from a tree in the courtyard at the University. Gorgeous, isn’t it? Some of you have asked for photos of where I work. I work at the University and at the Theater and both are quite lovely. However, there is much construction going on at the Theater at the moment, so it is not quite ready for a photo shoot. I will post some photos of the University soon.
Husband left last night, flew home on the red-eye and arrived this morning. As soon as he got home he called to say that the petsitter is amazing! She left the house impeccably neat, left several sheets of paper listing everything that happened each day, and took great, great care of the dogs. She is fantastic and we are so pleased. Truth be told, we almost always went away on separate trips for business or family reasons. One of us stayed behind to take care of the dogs. Since both of our dogs are rescues, I cannot bring myself to put them in a kennel or a cage. They wouldn’t understand. Our rule has always been that someone has to stay with them. When we were living here in San Diego, we found a wonderful group called Home Sitting Seniors. These were senior citizens who were mobile and would stay in your home, take in your mail and watch pets. But when we moved east, there was no such group. A chance conversation with a woman shopping at the store gave me the name of our petsitter. Thank goodness! I see some trips in our future.
I am sad that our mini-vacation is over, but I have lots of work to do before Tuesday and the resumption of classes. Today: laundry and a visit with an ex-student over coffee. Tomorrow: more work and a Pink Saturday post!
