I was surprised this morning to find HUGE Robins outside. It is not that I don't notice them - it just seems that they have increased in size since yesterday when they were out feeding. As they walked along the fence - it was almost jaw dropping. They looked like pregers women. The one's you know are going to have that baby (probably twins) at any moment. They walk with that hand on the back of their waist, looking happily miserable. Although these beautiful birds have no hands, the comparison is pretty complete! Guess they are here to let everyone know it is time to prepare for winter!
Olive was up all night Alarming. (I find ALARMING so much easier to post than barking after an almost sleepless night...). I am not sure what was outside, but she was certainly upset about this situation. She was kind enough to wake every Alarmer in a 10 city radius to help with her alerts. Somewhere in my twilight I thought I heard the Bear growling, but, alas the top of the dumpster has not been disturbed. Guess I am the only one to be truly disturbed last night!
I am trying to get a fence built around the remainder of my property. I am painfully aware of the inability of people to do what they say around here. Everyone has irrigation ditches to water their yards. It is a wonderful thing for most. Problem with it in the boonies is keeping it cleared out. Once it is done in my area it is not nearly the job. Until it is done, it is like walking through the jungles of Africa. No idea what you will run into, no clue if some weird vine will grab you and pull you away, waiting to be the dessert for one of those huge man eating fly traps that I used to love to buy Shelby, but was too grossed out to actually put something live in there for it to eat. Should you notice no posts in the next few months, you will know that something has gotten me, as today is the day for me to go in and clean it out. And I did drop the ball up at the top of this paragraph, my guys hired to do this activity yesterday never showed.
