WooHOOO -- it's almost the weekend! It was 89 degrees yesterday at lunchtime... I am so not ready for summer just yet. The guy who works on our trees came by last night to look at some work we need doing, and by the time we talked in the yard for 20 minutes or so (after 7pm mind you) I was pouring sweat. Having my neck knotted up and my head pounding didn't help things though. On the bright side, he's going to hang a new tree swing for us when he does the work, so that will help things too. Duncan has really missed the swing -- the rope is so frayed we won't let him on it, and we really wanted a "professional" opinion as to whether the branch would still hold him.
Dexter continues his role as King-of-the-Jungle... our neighbor told us last night he's seen Dexter with rabbits, and he left a bird spread over the front lawn for us to view this morning. He is very male, and very feline. Then he comes inside and purrs until you scratch beneath his chin for a while.
We actually have a busy weekend ahead. The county is doing a "Family Field Day" tomorrow, and I enrolled our family to go. You have to complete at least five events as a family, and then they feed you lunch and have a chance to win prizes. I hope we have a good time. A few of the prizes would be really nice -- a one year membership to a tae kwon do place, a basketball goal, and the grand pirze is a 4 day cruise for four (guess which prize I'd like!).
On a health note... it's not been a good couple of days for headaches or neck problems. Today I'm on the max dose of my medicine that my doctor allows... no pain at the moment but I'm pretty loopy. My friend "Frog Legs" got us started in this eight week health challenge so I've started wearing a pedometer to see how much i'm actually moving. I'm pleased to see it's more than I thought, and disappointed to see where I SHOULD be. So we'll tackle that one step at a time.
