Yes, Casey is blissful, and sort of besotted–he follows her around the pasture looking at her. She mostly ignores him! Her tail floats in the air but doesn’t flip it–she’s fairly low-key about things. Here are some not-so-great pictures. As you can see she is petite.
Sorry about the fuzzy pictures–I forgot to take the camera out this morning when I went to feed them. So these are taken from inside the house through the window! Fly is still checking everything out and is shy of me, but that’s to be expected.
We’re in soggyville over here. The gardens have that naked squashed flat look that they have when they’ve just had their blanket of snow melted off.
My dad bought a poinsetta plant for us for Christmas, and it’s glowing still. The vegetable garden survived the big snow. David went out and checked the greens and root veggies he has under various “greenhouses”. These include spinach, carrots, onions, beets, radishes.
Yesterday he went out and picked carrots and beets. Here they are!
It seems kind of weird to me to be picking vegetables in January. Creepy, even. (I have not said this to David!) But it’s certainly better than buying them at the store shipped from California or wherever.
The other day I saw a new stray cat in the yard. Black, with a white bib, and a tiny spot of white on his nose. He’s not friendly. Tater glared at him and stalked him fearsomely for awhile but since the big black cat just sat on the rock and didn’t even LOOK at Tater, Tater lost interest. I am resisting the urge to give this cat a name!
Back to writing syllabi and getting ready for next semester!
