Thundering Thursday

We had thunderstorms this morning before 7 am. On December 29. That's just plain weird. Of course, the last time we had a thunderstorm at the very end of the year, in 1999, we got 24" of snow within the week. Happily, it's not supposed to get cold enough for snow all next week. And yes, I did check the minute I heard the thunder.

The rain stopped around noon, and now it's sunny and mild outside, a distinct improvement. I drove in today, since I needed to run an errand at lunchtime, but I'll walk to the shuttle lot after work and get a little fresh air and sunshine then.

For the first time in quite a while, I didn't sleep well last night. Since Ivy insists on sleeping on the bed, I put a towel down for her to lie on. This is because she still does a little submissive pee sometimes, and I don't want to have to wash the duvet (again this week). David rolled his eyes, but didn't put her on the floor. I woke up again and again, probably from subconsciously worrying about Ivy, down by my feet. Apparently, there was no snoring to wake David, as he was still asleep when I left for work.

Sometimes it's not my snoring that disturbs him, but Jake's. Jake snores so extravagantly that I'd swear he was putting us on. Then there's the squeaky almost-barking, the twitchy almost-running, and the ferocious growling that he does while dreaming. We call it chasing rabbits. It's entertaining while we're watching tv, but less so at night.

David also snores, but a brass band probably wouldn't wake me up. Apparently, only a 15 pound dog by my feet will disturb my slumber!
