It is the first weekend in August, already. I have tan lines on my feet that won’t fade till late winter. The flowers in the clay pot are looking a bit done but the petunias are enjoying the cooler nights.
This morning I settled down in front of my lap-top to gather links from various Authors’ reviews. I’ve set up my ‘office area’ in front of the north windows and the view is as good as it gets.
I see rabbits, birds, voles, owls and a lot of deer. I keep a camera near to capture these creatures. Today, I gathered up two fawns. I did get the links up on the Eternal Press Website and I even sent out a press release.
Earlier in the week, our cat, Emma, who has a starring role in my novel coming out in November, was in a front yard brawl with some unknown and unphotographed thug from the animal kingdom. She evaded us for the better part of a day and lost an upper canine tooth. Emma seems better and wants to go outside to try her luck again. I’d like to give her a weapon, first.
The Oil Spill seems to be wrapping up. I hope BP can start making some money on it, now. They are going to need it. My granddaughter was listening to the news the other day and said, “Granny, I know what BP means. Oil Spill.” She also knows what to do in the event of a school shooting. Sigh. “Lockdown, Granny, you get away from the windows and stay really quiet.”
We opened the trunk of my car and discovered a mouse invasion, where was Emma when they were moving in? We scattered them with some mystery ‘bait.’ I should have added mice to the list of things in our yard. The bear seems to stay out on the road closer to the creeks. We haven’t had any stray horses in the yard for a long time. Did you know there is no one who takes care of lost horses?
I really don’t have much to say, I will try to have a more exciting week or at least pick a topic worthy of comment. Till next time, enjoy another picture of deer in my yard.
