|Another storm rolls in|
Good morning & hello to any of those still doing a Monday check in. While our official Monday Memos hostess, Sian, is taking a summer break, I thought I would try a new format for the Monday check in.
Memo To Mother Nature: I would like to thank you for the rain as the trees are still recovering from last year's drought & appreciate the big drink. BUT, having said that, the nearly 7" of rain in less than 2 hours was a bit drastic even for you! So much flooding in the area & there's rain forecasted everyday this week.

Mail: technically not post mail, but an email received Sunday night from the latest hire at the clinic; she's quitting. She's had enough of the boss forgetting to pay us, allowing us to run out of very necessary supplies along with far too many business disasters to mention. She is done July 3rd. I am feeling very sad as she was such a good fit for the clinic, but I do get why she is leaving. I am not looking forward to the resume reading, interviewing & training bits again ...
In The Shopping Basket: Both of our fur girls love water & spend a lot of time in the bathroom sink when water is running, so this weekend we bought them a water fountain. So far they haven't been that interested. I have suggested that we put on the bathroom counter to see if that doesn't spark their interest.
Also in the basket was two kits for making special Canada Day cookies. Lots of celebrating & fun activities planned for this Saturday July 1st.
Summer Reading List: I read The Women In The Castle. I liked. In this one I was interested in what happened to the characters. It is the story based around the attempted assassination of Hitler in 1944. The reality was that after the dust settled & Hitler survived, he ordered the round up, via the Gestapo of over 7,000 people even remotely connected to those that plotted & executed close to 4,500 of them. This book is a fictitious account of three of the widows of the men involved in the assassination plot & what happened to them during the last years of the war & up to 1991. An interesting perspective woven in with real life events.
Hoping everyone has a marvelous week ahead. Don't forget this Thursday is our first check in for the Photo Scavenger Hunt - see you then.
