We had super hot days, but also four cloudy days that brought the temperatures down to 80's/90's to lower 100's. The other days were in the teens. A couple of nights were in the 40's again, then the weather changed, and one night it was 70 at midnight. You have to be flexible with these changes.
Then, on Thursday night, around 11:30, it began to rain! By 1 A.M. it was still raining, though not hard, and was 62 out. All in all, we didn't get any measurable rain in inches, but I'm hoping that it helped the firemen a bit.
Dh saw something new on our road camera. It was dark, and Dh told me that I needed to look. Well, it was gone by the time that I did, but Dh said that it looked like a mountain lion crossing the road to this side, then it disappeared. He noted that very obvious tail.
Say that you could mistake that cat-like walk for that of a deers. No matter what, deer do not have that long, curved-up-at-the-end tail. Nothing does, really. So, I'm sure that it was a mountain lion.
That's a tad close for my liking. They are beautiful, but also dangerous. Then, a short while later, maybe 30 minutes, Krypto barked. Hmmm.
It's been baby week around here, as you can imagine. Krypto aside, we've had frequent feedings, keeping Henry warm, changed, giving him attention, etc. etc.
As well as balancing the 4 month old with the 5 week old. So far, that part's going well. There's a little jealousy when Henry comes out to snuggle, but mostly it's good.
Last Sunday I had a nice conversation with my aunt, about an hour before Henry showed up. I'm thinking of calling her tomorrow to tell her about him, and just chat.
Does anyone else remember when Saturday's and Sunday's were big days to call family members that didn't live close, perhaps in another state? Back then people had to make long distance calls, which were expensive. I'm not sure that younger people even know about that.
I did take quite a few photos this week, but something seems to be wrong with my camera. I'm missing photos, especially, of the critters as they grow, or of them together while Henry's still small.
The deer are everywhere right now. I had to tell Ds to be extra watchful as I see them browse along the road, and cross it, all the time lately.
We all use a deer driving rule, and that is: if a deer is visible from the road, or crosses the road in front of you, assume that there are more, and that they will follow.
I saw that yesterday. A deer was in the road moseying along, and a neighbor drove out. The deer startled, and ran across the road. Then, another came from the opposite side of the road to follow the first, then a third. Luckily, this is a slower, more cautious driver than many, so nothing bad came of it, but it could easily have.
Dh had a nice birthday, kind of quiet, but with many treats.
We have an organic inspection at 7 A.M. on Monday, which has a new wrinkle...we have to have all kinds of new paperwork, thanks to an earlier inspector, the one that gave us such a hard time.
Mostly, I can do it, but I have to get a written exception from a group for one paper, and don't imagine that I can before the inspection. Darn. I called our certification group yesterday, and we spent close to an hour getting some things straightened out. I hope that the papers that they sent me by email will be enough.
This week, Tux decided to hang out on the top rung of the ladder. I was worried, as that's over 14' up, and he played up there! It's an orchard ladder, so it has a wide base, and a very narrow top.
He was about 7' up, and was hanging down batting at the dog. Then, he went all the way up and was hanging off at 14', and kicking under the bottom of the overhang of the house. Yikes! Thankfully, Ds will be done with it soon, as amusing as it can be to see him on a rung!
Well, that's all from this neck of the woods! How was your week?
