Cheers and hello, my dear avian aficionados (and friends )
I come to share a few stories concerning life lately.
So I think I've managed to answer everything I could answer, which is good, but chances are that once in a while, I won't be able to. Sorry in advance
At any rate, why, you may ask? Well, as it happens, I have a lot of work, lately. Lots.
And, to add to that, all four of my orchestras are having concerts within the month, which means extra rehearsals.
So, although I will always come by and see what I can help with, it may be a little shortcoming.
I know you'll all say that's just fine, though, so I thought I'd drop it by more as an explanation and less of an excuse. You all are honestly the best little family anyone could want and I love talking to every single one of you! (And Princess Mallorn loves all the attention!)
Fall is certainly in the air and winter is knocking, so the "crops" (can you call them crops when you grew them in your yard?) have all been harvested.
Our squash plant (nicknamed "Kraken" because it literally grew to the size of a sea monster ) yielded about 150 squashes, half edible, half not edible (rather, ornamental) and although they're pretty they also take up a lot of space. Here's 2% of them:
Also, we went up to the mountains for one of the last days of the season. Snow at the summits has been unreasonably late this year so we may have time for one more visit before they close the roads, but it was absolutely lovely.
The one thing I don't like about fall:
Every day, we take the rake.
And run it through the lawn
Every day we rake the yard
With lots of buff and brawn
Every day, we gather leaves
(Although I lied about the brawn)
Every day we rake the yard
And have a spotless lawn.
Although we rake the yard all day
The spotlessness just goes away
I wish I could confirm our chore
But if I tried to take a picture,
Leaves there'd be again for sure
That about explains it, I think.
So I decided to take a picture of the leaves, not necessarily the yard. You wouldn't believe we raked it if I did!
Oh, here's a pretty sturdy little ladybug I found:
Anyways, Mallorn has been thrilled it's getting colder as now that apparently means she can take more baths. I'm not sure why.
I tried to ask why she took more baths when it was cold out but she told me to leave while she was bathing
Speaking of Mallorn, she's been up to the usual mischief (and I have accurate pictures to prove it!) but she wanted her own thread without the clutter of leaves and such so I'll be posting that sooner rather than later.
Thank you for stopping by!
and Princess Mallorn!
Thank you to Deb for her wonderful Faery magic
Thank you for your update, you busy person! I love your posts and will miss them... so do stop by when you can! The little Princess needs an adoring audience, so we need to know her antics from time to time.
Take care of you, too!
One day in the future I am sure you will have some sort of recognition be it for your musical talents, your amazing budgie , or your way with words which is pure magic. You my dear are a GEM. Please come back when able, make sure to take some time to wind down and enjoy your leaves LOL Vegetable soup sounds good with crusty bread in front of a nice warm fire.
