It is gorgeous here. As usual, we are not doing anything special for the holiday. My sweetie will barbeque a bunch of stuff later. He has just cleared the nasty blackberry vines from our small but wild front yard, which makes me happy because they've been biting me lately when I go to the car.
In nature news, this morning a giant eucalyptus branch fell off a tree directly behind my office -- not in our yard, fortunately, but in the nature area, maybe 60-80 feet away. I heard this loud cracking noise, and smash, saw it tumble to the ground. There is a grove of eucalyptus back there, probably 80-100 years old, planted as windbreaks for a long-ago quarry operation. That wood is very heavy. Anyway, it was exciting to see nature in action.
Crabfest W: Feeling cranky and irritable. Don't like it. AW: Started watching Glee. :)
Indoor wildlife report: this group of foster kittens will be here until Thursday -- 3 weeks altogether -- and they remain just cute as heck! Three will be ready for adoption, having achieved 2 lbs. and a high degree of sociability. The tiny one, he is growing well and has gained tons of mad kitten skillz!!! Know I'm writing a lot about kittens, but they are pretty much the best news lately.
Tell us all about it!
