Swampwalking on Social distancing day 146.

It was pleasantly cool at about 730 this morning, maybe 75f. Post storm, there were a lot of clouds and wet plant life to keep things less than hellish.

Wildlife report – panda cat was lounging outside, no sign of aliencat or fluffernutter. Birds were extra chirpy, osprey had quite a bit to say in particular. Only 2, but dang, they were noisy. Protecting a nest, possibly? Spotted a young eagle and a smattering of smaller birds, mostly starlings.

2 squirrels having a game of chase.

No headless phantoms doing yoga or golden-pelted gorillas wearing cowboy hats. This time. Dang it.

A smattering of butternut squash plants have bloomed in our yard, purely volunteer. That’s fine, but I would have preferred a random zucchini plant springing up. The asparagus and grapes that are there deliberately are coming along nicely. Though young, I imagine that since they are vine plants and in our yard, I technically am the proprietor and a caretaker of a vineyard.

Considering the removal of most social media apps from my phone. I’d keep Instagram, but Facebook and Twitter could certainly be dropped into the “visit via web browser” status, I think. I don’t have snapchat or tiktok on my phone at all, and don’t miss them.
