How was your weekend? Mine was not what I had planned. Dee and I were supposed to get together for a walk and then some knitting under my apple tree. But, Thursday night Mailing started running a fever. So erring on the side of caution Dee and I decided not to get together. Mailing was tested Friday for Covid, but we don't know the results yet - hopefully today (2-4 days for the results). Since Fletch and I saw Colin & Mailing 6 days before she ran the fever, we are staying away from everyone. I had planned to go into the office today, but am staying home instead. Mailing is feeling better each day, but is still not 100%.
Friday I did walk along the canal, and looking across the water I saw these day lilies:
Such a profusion! I love seeing the reflection in the water.
On Saturday I walked a little over 5 miles along the path in Oaks. And boy was it muggy! We had rain early in the morning but by 9 it was clear, so I headed out. There were a number of walkers and a lot of bikers. I thought this little guy was going to come right for me:
Hard to see in the picture, but this is a young buck with tiny antlers still in velvet. Tail up and he meant business! I was in his way and he was not going to stop - lol. Later a young, spotted fawn broke out of the woods running right towards me. It had been frightened by two German Shepherd dogs (on leashes) ahead of me. I'm like a magnet for these deer!
And, speaking of deer, they have managed to do severe damage on our garden! They have munched bell peppers, jalapeno peppers (!!), tomato plants, etc. Farmer Fletch has put up screening and wires around everything! And he went out and got coyote urine to sprinkle around everything. LOL
So disappointing after everything was doing so well. And now our garden looks like a prison with wire everywhere!
I did manage to get a little knitting and a little stitching done over the weekend, but no pictures yet. Not sure what I will be able to do today. The morning has already been busy work-wise and I have a conference call at 10. It is also feeling a bit sticky already, so I doubt I will get out for a walk. Time will tell.
Wishing you all a great week! I can't believe we are at the end of June!!!
