I think our property is becoming a wildlife preserve. But not a welcome one. First there is my old "pal", the groundhog who I have blogged about many times. And let's not forget the skunks who have tormented me for 2 years now and I have blogged about many, many times. Yes, I saw 2 of them a few weeks ago but not since. They are probably waiting for me to drop my guard. Arrgh !
Then a couple of weeks ago I started hearing this strange noise in the back yard. I can only explain the sound as a cross between a giant, angry bullfrog that is croaking and growling at the same time. Lol. And a few days ago I discovered the source of this gawd awful sound. A friggin pheasant has now taken up residence in the back yard ravine.
Do you see him? He is a little camera shy although he was out in the open until I got out my phone. I tried to get a little closer but he was getting skittish and to be honest.....I'm a little scared of him. For some reason I think if I get too close he will attack me. That seems like the kind of thing that would happen to me, right? I can hardly wait to see what other woodland creature calls my yard home! Not!! And the worst part is, I don't live in the country. I'm in the middle of town.
Other than that, it was a nice weekend. Yesterday was sunny and warm so Auntie and I went for a nice drive to Parrsboro (and our favorite little shop). We picked up a few things, but mostly it was just nice to be out on a beautiful spring day. Then we went out for a nice supper. (In fact I've managed to go the entire weekend without cooking at all)
And I FINALLY got our taxes sent in today. Nothing like cutting it close! Tomorrow is the deadline. Whew!
Lastly, a hooking update. I've been stuck for a few days. First I couldn't decide what to start next. Either I didn't have the right wool for one project, or the right size linen for another. I had one lonely little end left and then I found inspiration in an unlikely place --- a paper napkin! It was kind of a funky, abstract design and as soon as I saw it I thought it might make a good rug.
