We’re going to have apples
Lots of spuds and a few onions, peas, leeks, beans and onions.
These two are a little under the weather
It’s also the peak of the season for mice. Most nights Chairman brings in a tiny dead mouse and lays it at my feet in the office. He looks up at me for approval. I give him a little chuck under the chin, or scratch his ears and tell him softly how much I appreciate him protecting us from the furry hordes. There’s no sense scolding him, it’s what he does.
Hunting is so good that he is once again honing his catch and release skills. Sunday at about midnight he turned a really lively one loose in the bedroom. We had a good chase for a half hour or so but this one was not inclined to be “re-wilded”. So I bated a trap and in the morning found him stiff as a board but with a mouthful of cheese. I like to think he died with a smile on his face.
Since commute to work month has passed I have not been on the bike much. Just wrapping up a big work project with a lot of travel, and then there is running down those dandelions with the mower. things will return to normal soon (I hope).
