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 .

Swampwalk social distance day 186

Panda the cat watching squirrels from his fence as I walk by.

Much cooler today, 71f in the sun, probably 5 cooler in the shade, which is ideal for me.

Critter count, aside from Panda, 3 squirrels, a few turkey vultures, one robin, a couple of cowbirds and lots of brown and white butterflies pairing off in combat or love.

I haven’t seen alien or fluffernutter kitty lately, but if they are indoors, I am happy they are safe.

Possum skeleton is totally gone, either covered by foliage or scattered by gnawing beasts.

About half the people I saw (4 of 9) were wearing masks, disappointing.

Mrs picked up our mail for the first time in about a month, looking forward to seeing if ballot info is in there yet, plus glyos stuff ordered a few weeks back.

May go for a 2nd walk later this evening if body, weather and light holds out for us.

Swampwalk social distance day 185.

I brought @maximillian_deersteak with me to the swamp for a quick jaunt during lunchtime. We saw a squirrel, panda the cat, a skunk, some crown-tipped coral fungus as well as the standard toadstool / step fungus.

Birdsong was minimal, but cicada chirps were plentiful.

Midday mosquitoes were out but not too terrible, maybe a few bites each.

Weather was a bit cooler, but direct sun was still plenty hot. I am ever thankful for leafy shade. Some branches by the water seem to have snapped off recently, maybe from recent rain… Or just age. I know the feeling.
