On Sunday I wrote, "I wonder what Suki will do with herself while I'm gone?"
[Heh, heh, heh.]
I've been down in Washington for the last few days for a meeting. Small, intimate, just me and about 950 of my colleagues from around the world.
Since I was going to be down there, I had arranged to go to Bethesda today after the meeting was completed to visit my clients, Maura and Rick. Bethesda is such a cute town. They've really developed the downtown area with several charming restaurants, shops and galleries.
Rick and Maura took me to a cute little French bistro near their office for lunch. It was nice to see them and catch up on things. On our way back to the office, we stopped at an art gallery that specializes in glass art - there were some really lovely pieces.
I caught the 3:00 train back to Philadelphia and got home around 5:00. I walked in and it looked as though someone had tossed my condo! Plants were knocked over and there was dirt everywhere, the wastepaper basket was turned upside down and shredded Kleenex covered the living room. It appears that Suki got a little excited and spent her time racing around the house for four days, leaving a trail of mayhem in her wake.
Keep in mind, of course, that my vacuum cleaner decided to die last week, so I am cleaning up the potting soil and tissue shreds with a Dustbuster.
[So now I know what Suki did with herself while I was gone.]
