Stop! Listen to the Bird!

June 12, 2016  •  16 Comments



After a rather short night with lots of trips to the bathroom, I finally woke up, dragged myself out of bed, fluffed the blue hair upon on my head, walked out to the kitchen and made a cup, then finally got around to pulling on a pair of combat boots in anticipation of continuing my weekend warring on weeds.  

I uncovered the birds to feed and water them, and when Søren saw me in combat boots he yelled “STOP!” and Beaker yelled “Squawk!” After I finished with the birds, Rosencrantz started ragging on me and said as much as “Listen to the bird!”  Apparently, they thought I was doing too much and needed to take it easy. 

I had fully planned to crash on Saturday, even planning a post called “Feeling Kinda Sleepy Now!” with photos of a Tse Tse Fly biting me for when I crashed — however, I never really crashed. On the other hand, I couldn’t resist laying around with Rosencrantz between dragging hoses around, a little organizing here and there, photographing the garden and helping Laurie prepare dinner for her book group. I did leave the weeds to add to their ranks — I’ll have to see how battle ready I will be next weekend.




"Listen to the bird!"

Touching down on my arm
I'm feeling kinda sleepy now

I was bitten by a tse-tse fly"

Thanks, Julie! The weeds don't like to wait. They are getting like Jack and the Bean Stock size.
Oh that Rosencrantz - what a handsome cat! The bee in the flower sprinkled with pollen - heavenly. Make sure you do take it easy. Trust me those weeds will wait - they always do :D

Love the critters! Always riding herd on the humans. Those flowers are really beautiful, Tim Glad you are still feeling well enough to put on boots.
