But hers was NOT the loud growl/roar that woke us up out of a sound sleep at the awful hour of 5:15! MM jumped out of bed, instructing me to find Missy while he opened the door to the deck and bravely walked outside.
Missy was cautiously curious, found looking out a window herself. MM saw something fat moving off the deck. Raccoon, maybe? Do they give a kitty roar? I don’t know about that. And I didn’t see the critter. It was still DARK. So guess which one of us was able to get back to sleep? Oy…it will be a LONG day, but since I didn’t get a post up last night, here I sit at the computer, with coffee and the morning news in the background.
Missy brought in another ‘friend’ into the house yesterday…a baby snake that I rescued (in an empty shoe box, brave me) and dumped outside…to hopefully learn to be quicker than our girl. Or not.
Life is never dull, living so close to the forest. But we did get treated to the beautiful sight of four deer running across our front yard a couple of days ago, just above where that ugly old propane tank used to sit.
Has Mother Nature given you a treat lately? If not, look for one. It’s there.
