Well, I'm impressed, Star!! Do get well, though. I've got a bit of a cold, too, but not nearly such a good reason for it. Irritated, actually, it's just a beautiful fall here, and I've been housebound for two days. Maybe tomorrow.
Looked outdoors before it became dark, and was relieved to see the mama deer with twins - now, the little ones are almost ready to leave, no more spots, and they are almost Mom's size. Relieved because I've been hearing coyotes nearby almost nightly, and I hadn't seen this family lately, even under the apple trees. Another Mom with one fawn was there yesterday, but often I see both families together.
The deer have taken to looking quietly at me as I step out on our deck, but not running unless I move suddenly. Don't know if that is good, with hunting season around the corner.
One good thing I am attributing to the coyotes: my yard plants have all made it through the summer - no groundhogs left...
