Sherlock's spay appointment + some nice spring weather

Pixlr (1)Alright a little behind on my post this week. I usually try to post either Sundays or latest Monday (lately it's been mostly Monday mornings) about the past week but it just completely slipped my mind yesterday morning. I think because I was out of my routine as I worked from home instead of going into the office. I was staying home to watch over Sherlock as she had her spay appointment this past Friday. She is really doing great so all's well but of course it's still good to watch her. Especially since she managed to get her cone off twice (we even went back to the vet Saturday morning to get her a different cone). We now decided to leave the cone off and see what she does. As long as she doesn't bother her stomach where her incision is she doesn't really need the cone. Of course that's a TBD as she could start licking/scratching/messing with it at any moment but so far so good. She's been good and has left it alone so we shall see how it goes. 

Her surgery was Friday. We dropped her off in the morning and picked her back up again around 5pm. She was a bit groggy and loopy still when we first brought her home but not too bad. She just absolutely hated that cone. Friday to Saturday night was not a very restful night as she would wake up about once an hour getting up, trying to mess with her cone and whatnot. So Saturday morning we went back to the vet and got her a clear plastic cone (the original one was a soft one made out of paper) hoping that would help. All was ok for most of the day when in the late afternoon she managed to get that one off too. We don't even think she really did it on purpose. She was trying to scratch/lick a certain area and was bending and managed to get it off that way. My sis-in-law was watching her at the time and couldn't get the cone back on so we decided to leave it off for now. 

Other than that the weekend was pretty good. We had some nice spring weather (around 65F/18C and sunny) even though everything is still pretty brown here. Can't wait for the trees to get leaves and everything to turn green again. Hopefully soon. We had some nice weather Monday as well. Today it's going to be much cooler though (50F/10C) and the lows for the next few days are dropping down to around freezing again. It's been so nice having the windows open especially at night. Nothing better than sleeping with an open window. Sunday night it also rained for a while and that's always a soothing sound/feeling somehow when you're in bed sleeping. 

Sunday we also checked out a new restaurant that opened up. It's part of a local chain called Marketplace. This one opened up in an old jail which was really neat. In the bar you could still see the bars from the cells and it was just a neat converted space. Here is an article about it if you are interested. It's a neat project. Was definitely busy but as they haven't been open for very long I am sure a lot of people wanted to go to check it out same as we did. Anyway it was fun. Not right around the corner but if we are in the area again for any reason it's worth going back to. That same chain does have restaurants much closer but the menus do vary slightly at each location. The one in Woodbury is pretty neat as well - set in an old converted barn. 

Well, that's about all for now I suppose. Let's see what the rest of the week brings. Work's pretty busy but that's only normal as we are now heading into the spring/summer season where all goes a bit haywire. And a week from tomorrow I will already be on a plane again heading to Austria. I am not quite sure I am really prepared for that just yet. But I guess I have a week to get my stuff in order right?
