Swampwalk social distance day 187.

What magic ๐Ÿ”ฎ is this? Weirdo keyboard settings change has an emoji button.

Happy Wednesday, dear journal!

Garden report – grapevines ๐Ÿ‡, squash ๐ŸŽƒ 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 ๐Ÿฅฌ๐Ÿฅฆ๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿฅ”๐Ÿฅ‘ delivery from imperfect and misfit.

Loving the cooler ๐Ÿ˜Ž weather ๐ŸŒฅ๏ธ right now, fewer mosquitoes ๐ŸฆŸ and more songbirds and crickets ๐Ÿฆ— 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 ๐Ÿฆด๐Ÿ”™ but very happy โ˜บ๏ธ to have gone for a little promenade ๐Ÿšถโ€โ™‚๏ธ right after breakfast ๐Ÿฅฃ.

Critter count – too many squirrels, something big in the brush (probably a fox ๐ŸฆŠ or a possum ) that took off at serious speed when trod on a particularly snappy branch.

Several songbirds ๐ŸŽถ ๐Ÿฆ, I think finches and robins but a finer ear than mine could probably pick out more specific and varied chirps. One osprey ๐ŸŸ ๐Ÿฆ was seen but not heard, no eagles ๐Ÿฆ… and side note, we have a neighborhood owl ๐Ÿฆ‰that can be heard nightly ๐ŸŒ• from our porch, but not during the day ๐ŸŒž (reasonable)

No turtles ๐Ÿข, frogs ๐Ÿธ, children of the corn ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐ŸŒฝ or buffalo๐Ÿƒ to be seen.

Catwise, I only saw Panda cat ๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿˆ again today, fluffernutter cat๐Ÿฅœโšช๐Ÿˆ, and alien cat ๐Ÿ‘ฝ ๐Ÿˆ

I wonder how silly ๐Ÿ˜œ 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 .
