Mostly sunny today and cool with a breeze. Temps in the upper 60’s.

I volunteered at the bookstore from 11 to 3. Traffic was steady this morning but slowed down this afternoon.

Colin is pretty much back to his old self.

I am reading Murder She Barked by Krista Davis.

Fortunately the rain, heavy at times, did not start until after I had Colin out around 6 this morning. It slacked off enough by mid morning for me to make a trip to the grocery store.

The rain has cleared out bringing a cold front with it. Sunny this afternoon but highs only in the low 60’s with 15 to 20 mph winds and a low tonight down into the upper 40’s.

Mostly sunny, breezy, and warm with temperatures in the low 80’s. No rain yesterday. May get a thunderstorm this afternoon.

Went to the gym this morning. Colin continues to improve. I gave him back him indoor ball today. Just gentle tosses for a few more days,

Mostly sunny and humid with temperatures in the low 60’s. We may get a shower this afternoon.

I vacuumed this morning. Now I remember why I vacuum every week. Dog hair everywhere plus grass and stuff brought in on my shoes and his paws. Cleaned the bathrooms and did some dusting.

After lunch swept off the front porch and watered all the flowers. I have a squash plant on the deck in a pot and some beans in another one. Both are doing well. Watered those plus the other plants on the deck then tended to the plants in the dinning room.

Mostly sunny and breezy today with some 15 to 20 mph gusts.

I volunteered at the bookstore from 11 to 2. We are short staffed and with Colin on the mend I went in to hold down the fort overlapping Anne and Jane’s shifts. Saturdays are always are best day for customers and sales.

As I said, Colin is on the mend. I may let him go out loose with his vibration collar starting this afternoon.

Mostly sunny and breezy today with low humidity and temps in the upper 70’s.

I went to gym and the library this morning. Colin continues to be doing well with his recovery. I am keeping an eye on the sutures which are looking good. Still doing leash walks at least another day or two.

It was 49 degrees when I walked Colin at 6 am this morning. Lots of sunshine today with a bit of a breeze and a high in the low 70’s.

Despite all the rain the flowers in the ground and the pots dry out quickly especially with the wind and sun yesterday. I watered everything this morning then took a break before going back out to prune the new growth on the quince bush. Want to keep it at the size it is now. Deadhead a few flowers and cut the dead peony blooms off then called it quits.

Off course kept Colin inside. Sutures looking good but need to keep him semi contained as possible for another few days.

Sunny today but cool with temps in the mid 70’s and breezy with 15 mph wind gusts at times.

Changed the sheets this morning and did a few odds and ends in the house.

Still trying to keep Colin from overdoing things. We’ve been on several walks and playing on the couch but he is wants to do more. Surgical site is looking good but today is his first day off the pain medication.

Mostly sunny and breezy today with temps in the mid 70’s.

I spent an hour or so working outside this morning. I sprayed Roundup along the grass side of the natural area along the driveway, deadheaded a few flowers, and pulled weeds around the flowers.

Colin continues to be doing well.

I am reading Cat Me If You Can by Miranda James.

Mostly sunny today and breezy with temps in the upper 70’s. Forecast did not predict the rain that started around 10 pm last ahead of a thunderstorm that brought another inch of rain. I sat on the couch until 11:30 to try and keep Colin as calm as possible then came back to bed and he settled down for the rest of the night.

Spending today just trying to keep him entertained on the couch and not do a lot of jumping around, walks on the leash, etc.
