Swampwalk social distance day 187.

What magic 🔮 is this? Weirdo keyboard settings change has an emoji button.

Happy Wednesday, dear journal!

Garden report – grapevines 🍇, squash 🎃 and asparagus all coming along nicely. I am hoping that our vineyard is tasty and fruitful when the time comes. As it gets cooler, the vines are going to get more woody and tough, so I am glad they are visibly growing every day while it is still warm. The one overachiever vine is something like 7ish feet now, where the rest are at about 5.

Had to regather our recycling this morning as the wind had taken some of our many cardboard boxes out of the bin. It was overfull since we get a regular veggie 🥬🥦🥒🥔🥑 delivery from imperfect and misfit.

Loving the cooler 😎 weather 🌥️ right now, fewer mosquitoes 🦟 and more songbirds and crickets 🦗 It was downright cacophonous when I was walking out this morning. Temp went from upper 60s to low 70s, and quite comfy – I am creaky 🦴🔙 but very happy ☺️ to have gone for a little promenade 🚶‍♂️ right after breakfast 🥣.

Critter count – too many squirrels, something big in the brush (probably a fox 🦊 or a possum ) that took off at serious speed when trod on a particularly snappy branch.

Several songbirds 🎶 🐦, I think finches and robins but a finer ear than mine could probably pick out more specific and varied chirps. One osprey 🐟 🐦 was seen but not heard, no eagles 🦅 and side note, we have a neighborhood owl 🦉that can be heard nightly 🌕 from our porch, but not during the day 🌞 (reasonable)

No turtles 🐢, frogs 🐸, children of the corn 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦🌽 or buffalo🐃 to be seen.

Catwise, I only saw Panda cat 🐼 🐈 again today, fluffernutter cat🥜⚪🐈, and alien cat 👽 🐈

I wonder how silly 😜 this will look to me later looking back ? I don’t usually fiddle with emoji, but figured that I would follow my keyboard suggestions for a change .
