Arrived last night at the house around 7:45 after a very long and tiring flight. It was such a pleasure to see Susan at the airport gate when I arrived! The flight was about 45 minutes late, so poor thing had to wait for me.
Flying in to Seattle, the clouds covered in and it looked just like when I left - gray! But it stays light until late and it isn't that cold.
Buddy came rushing out when he heard the car and was so happy to see me - he was so excited he was drooling and the engine running hard. Hinckley came in a bit later and was a bit more stand-offish but got over it fast and both slept with me last night.
I woke up at 4 am - so it's going to take a while to get over jet lag, made harder by the gray today. The garden is a mess - masses of weeds so it's a good thing it wasn't shown while I was gone. Grass growing up between the flagstone, veges looking sad and the kiwi vine taking over the pathway. Rhodies are looking sad too as they haven't had any water. Saw a bald eagle soaring in front of the house being chased by crows, and I always look at them as a good sign, so things must get better.
Went through a mountain of mail - tossed 95% of it - now must go and get some food.
It's lonely here - the thing I had been dreading most. So got to get this place sold pronto so I can get the hell out of here.
