Look Up, Look Down...
Walking anywhere lately, has turned me into Mrs. Gulliver in the land of Lilliput. As my footsteps create "tremors" on the hard and dusty ground below, tiny creatures flee the crushing power of my sneaker! It is baby toad season, and they are everywhere!! I love toads- they eat flies- I hate flies!
These tiny toads could sit on a dime and still have room left over! I walk with my head down most of the time - particularly near dusk, when the little toadies emerge for dinner! My peripheral vision catches slight movement here and there, and it is usually a teeny toad, scurrying for his very life!!! I'm not sure, but I suppose the rat snakes would find them a delicacy- so, not only do toads need to be wary of giants among them, they need to watch for slithering enemies looking for a late night snack!
other blog has been largely ignored of late, I guess some life in the country will again start seeping back in to my "artfully" world. Just too hard, too busy, at times- too disorganized, and sometimes downright too lazy- to keep up with two blogs!!!
After unloading 200 lbs of feed and seed, pulling down and stacking square bales, picking veggies from the garden, caring for the horses, and the dogs, blogging takes a back seat lately! Altho, sitting in the A/C and writing, is alot more appealing some days, than sweating in 100 degree heat!!!
Now, I have to head out to a neat little farmhouse, to care for a client's dogs, cats and chickens. Maybe, on the way back, I will stop off at the Fulks Run Lawn Party to visit Mr. Green Jeans, who is cooking chicken for the crowds.
Anyway, all is well, at Mountain Meadows this hot and humid night.......................................
