It reached 102 degrees today and I haven’t felt like doing much of anything. The days preceding this one have been getting steadily warmer, and blogging is the last thing I’ve wanted to do, plus there isn’t much to write about.
Lady just threw up on the carpet.
Two fawns have been on their own the past couple of days, and I think they are the same ones I took pictures of, with their mother, about 3 wks ago. There is no mother in the picture the past two days, and the babies come down and lie in the leaves and grass next to my car for much of the day. A couple of times the smaller of the two has started toward me when I’m taking the dog down the driveway, or else she just looks at me very closely but doesn’t bother to get up and run. I always talk to them in a quiet voice – “Hello sweetheart” – and I am glad they don’t seem to be frightened of me, nut maybe they should be frightened of people and dogs. At about 6 pm both days the two fawns make their way up the hill for the evening. When another deer goes through the yard it completely ignores the two little ones. It breaks my heart. Without another deer to care for them and about them, they can’t make it. To add to their troubles, there are coyotes in the neighborhood, or at least one coyote has been seen.
We should be getting a break in the weather after the weekend, and I hope I can come up with something to say. There are about 10 more wake-ups until I leave, and I’m about ready to go. It just confirms that I can’t stay in one place too long.
