Sorry I hadn't realized how long it had been since I posted. You were stuck looking at pictures of empty black flats. Not a very attractive sight. I decided to show you a prettier picture of the flowers I planted.
My daughter is back home from school and has settled in nicely. She helped me clean the house for the Japanese school's visit. The coordinator told us that there are fewer students this year - 25 students and 30 prospective families, which means some families will not have a guest this year. They will make their decision after they have visited all the families.
Work is going along. Since my vacation schedule will keep me from being available for all of the work I need to do, my manager has decided that I cannot do it at all. Fortunately, he moved me to another project so I can still work. I will still be able to work on my old project next year.
It's been thundering and lightening quite a bit lately. There were some trees down at the local park where I walk Zeus everyday. He is very afraid of storms. Yesterday, Zeus tried to hide under my bed during a storm and got stuck. Fortunately, my daughter was home and went looking for him after she heard a loud clap, so she was able to get him out.
