That's about the only way to describe our weather this past weekend, and again today. Just gorgeous perfection! Totally weird too, we normally get a lot, a lot of rain in March and April, and this March, rain was almost non-existent save for a few little showers here and there. On Saturday we hit 78 degrees at our house. Easter Sunday was 77 degrees. Since I was pretty much sick all day Saturday, lounging in the sun on the deck, I actually have red legs and rosy cheeks today. :) That was the fly in the ointment in my otherwise, perfect weekend. What a drag to feel lousy on such an amazing weekend. I had so many plans and hopes for the beautiful days, but by Sunday I was feeling tentatively better, so thought it wise to lay low and take things slow and easy. My new meds and I are having some difficulties, I think. I skipped the new stuff yesterday and again this morning...wouldn't you know it? Monday morning and I'm in fine form. Good as new. Suspicious huh? Sure hope we can figure things out and make this work, because the best part of this new med is that it almost entirely squelches my appetite. There's pretty much no way I wouldn't lose significant weight when I'm eating only enough to keep a bird alive. :) Anyway, we'll see how everything goes.
My wonderful husband on the other hand, was all energy and gung-ho both days. He took care of all the horse chores and even did some laundry. He mowed our lawn. That was a huge feat in itself because this is the first mow job of the spring and we could bale that stuff. Seriously, it was about a foot tall and lush. The smell was wonderful! He also spent some time working on his camper project, and that's coming along nicely. We had to put the fly masks on the horses for the first time. Yep, along with the glorious sunshine, we also had an immediate insurgence of flies. Nasty flies! The poor horses were covered in them. And since the horses are all shedding like crazy, they were sweaty and itchy...snoozing, lethargic horses all over the place. They were much more comfortable with their masks. They almost put them on themselves. :)
I'm trying to keep my excitement at bay, but I'll mention casually that we may have sold our horse trailer as well. An offer was made, we shook hands and everyone seems to be in agreement...but it's slightly more complicated than that. Suffice it to say, if everything works out, we will be pleased beyond measure and ever so thankful for such an unanticipated blessing. :)
The dogs and I took a lovely walk around the park trail this day at noon. I had forgotten just how long their tongues really are! It was wonderful! I got sweaty, and my hair was totally damp from the uncustomary warmth this early in spring. How cool is that!?
I know, I must really be weird. I'm super excited to be sweaty!!
Hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing Easter weekend.
Waiting with bated breath...
