We got sloppy snow here last week and it seemed that everyone and their grandma was whining about it, so I purposely didn't whine. (1) We need the moisture and (2) the sucky weather wouldn't last.
I was right! I should be a meteorologist. Yesterday was a beautiful day, so Magnum and I got out for a little nature time at Fountain Creek Regional Park. We hadn't been there in years, and I'm glad we chose it.
We added a few geocaches to our log while we were at it, so a productive spring day all around.
And it was a good week in general, the tutees are winding down with the end of the school year/semester at hand. Just a few "OMG, final exam!" appointments in an otherwise mellow schedule for me.
We had a nice dinner with my mom-in-law and her husband to celebrate Wolfgang's graduation. Magnum's sis and her husband joined us too. It's strange we don't really socialize much with my sister-in-law (their politics are a little opposed to Magnum's...), but we usually have a good time with them.
As for Sierra the Wonder Dog - as in "I wonder what's the deal with her?" - things are looking good! Her new foster family, after she left our cat craziness home, decided to keep her on even though she attacked their other foster pooch.
One of their stipulations in taking her in was that the adoption group expedite her eligibility for adoption. The fosters aren't available for adoption until they've been spayed/neutered, so our coordinator was able to get Sierra in for her "spa day" this week. Really, I'm impressed with how efficiently stuff just gets done with this group.
So she's done been fixed, and she's already got an appointment with a potential adopter family today! She's a good dog, really. Smart and playful, just a little overwhelmed at all the changes in her life. She's not even 2 years old yet. Her new foster mom took this mug of her. What's not to like??
I noticed she's wearing a Thunder Jacket in the photo. Maybe it helped to calm her down. Thunder Jacket and major abdominal surgery...
Update: Sierra was adopted on the spot once the adopters met her! Retired couple, no other pets. Perfect! I'm so happy for her *sniff*
