:backyard biology:



This week we had a fairy egg from our chickens,  and a banana slug eating a snail.

Mountain life can be cool.

See y’all on Monday.



I’m probably in the air, somewhere over the Midwest right now.

I cannot wait to see my dog and my home and my bed!

So I’ll leave you with one of the colorful locals we met in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands.

This, is Bane.


:gentle giants:

Today is our last day in Florida.

I spent half my childhood here, and call it home more than any other place I have lived. Both our families are now here, as my MIL moved here almost two years ago. It makes for seeing family easy, as we no longer need to pick between Doug’s and mine.

Our last day here has been spent mostly on the road, but we got a great unexpected treat today. We got to see the manatee who take shelter from the cold weather in the canals around my sister’s house.

I’m too tired to write a lengthy post, so I will leave you with a photo of these gentle giants.
