We’ve had a new neighbor hanging about recently.
And she kindly ate some of the poison ivy still left after I pulled out an entire garbage bag full of the evil vines.
She’s under my “office” window now, looking up when the phone rings; and earlier, rather creepily stared at me as she took a piss. Perhaps she thinks that part of the yard is hers now, which is fine.
I’m glad I never ended up using any of the nasty chemicals I got to kill the ivy – I worried about the stuff getting into our well, but she would have been affected by it too, if not more so?
But she’s also a kick in my tired ass that the garden needs a much taller fence…
Not to mention I also need to revive said garden… but I knew we wouldn’t have enough time this year, so we renewed our CSA subscription with the liked/hated organic farm… more mutants to toss down the pie hole!
…as well as fresh herbs once more, thankfully.
The kitchen also got some freshly sewn curtains – the doe can’t spy on me now…
(at least in that room).

deer, fresh herbs, big back yard…definitely makes me miss home.
Yeah, this time of the year makes snowmaggedons more tolerable – like it’s the price to pay for the good stuff. I hope you can maybe grow a few things in pots?
You’ll miss all of the crazy market offerings when you return though, and perhaps even feel nostalgic for carcasses…
