My Monday night at work was busy but manageable, and I'm so very happy to have the holiday off. I'm expecting farm visitors, which means I should be getting to bed early tonight. By which I mean maybe 2-ish. But first I wanted to share a few things.
First is this little invader, whom I found & hurriedly released before I left for work.
When I was letting him go on the back of the property, I heard what I think was most likely fox kits playing just around the hill and out of my line of sight. I released him by an old stone wall, though, so he's at least got a fighting chance. If you're really interested and look really closely, there is a bit of mouse poo visible in the photo, but it wasn't what I was shooting for (Speaking of which, if you have an aversion to that sort of photo, don't go here. And on another knitting blog, no less!).
And going even a touch further back, we got word Monday morning that one of David's girls had delivered a healthy grey boy cria. David already had a full slate, so I went over and took some pics and only just had a chance to get on his comp to upload one.
No name yet, but he's exactly one year younger than Juliette. He looks very rosy on the surface but he's pretty silvery underneath his tips, so we have yet to see what his final color will be.
I managed to get a touch of sleep this afternoon and got up to head over to Chicks with Sticks. Julie has promised not to rechristen it "Chicks & Dicks with Sticks" just because I'm representing the Y chromosome there, but today I wasn't even the only man. Not only that, The Sheep showed up! So it was extra special, but I still had to cut out a little bit early so that I could get home in time to throw together a salad before we headed down to watch the fireworks across the river in Portsmouth. It was a little chilly down on the water, but at least it kept it from being very buggy.
I'm sure there must be more to tell, but it's time for bed, and I'm sleepy. Next time I'll try to elaborate a bit more on Devanagari and how Firefox fouls it up (and why JoVE got question marks instead of the characters).
