Wow, this weekend flew by, and I don’t think either of us were quite ready to face Monday morning. On Saturday, we went to a picnic being held for Mickaboo volunteers. We’re a quirky bunch, and everyone loved talking about birds, bird toys, and basically anything having to do with birds. There was also a raffle to raise money for Oliver, a bird with health problems and very high vet bills. We won a gorgeous photo of Oliver, which now hangs by my desk, and it feels good knowing that our contribution helped Mickaboo raise $500 for this deserving little guy. At the picnic, Wayne noticed that many of our childless friends interacted with Corinne as if she was a bird, which was really fun to watch. As usual, Corinne didn’t mind and loved all the attention.
Yesterday, Wayne’s Aunt Joyce and Aunt Janice came to visit. They brought adorable gifts for Corinne, and shared lots of stories and photos from when Wayne was a little boy. Wayne hadn’t seen his aunts in many years, and it was a real treat to spend some time with them.
In addition to our usual errands, chores, and work this week, Wayne is going to a game night tomorrow to play Don’t Rest Your Head. I’m having lunch with my mom’s group this Friday and hopefully will get to take a walk at the Berkeley Marina tomorrow with one of the moms. Saturday will be spent in Santa Cruz with family, and it will be great fun hanging out where I used to live. We have so much to look forward to, which makes the Monday morning blues a little less tough.
We hope that everyone’s week is off to a great start!
