Damn; It's Cold Out There



I put out birdseed and peanuts this icy morning and the squirrels, birds, chipmunks, and a big brown rabbit showed up. I looked at that leggy old rabbit and wondered, "What are you here for?" She looked back at me with the largest brown eyes. I went back inside to the veggie drawer and got the slightly wilted carrots I'd been saving for soup. Yep. That's what she was here for. Goddess forfend that I ever send anyone away from my door hungry or thirsty. Time are tough all over. And, yet, those Solstice bells . . . .

I love this-the early morning talk/writing, the hint of the quiet of the house and the activity of you within.

My son loves leaving the soft carrots outside for the bunnies and deer. It's the simple things in this house.

Our weather here has been seesawing back and forth between spring and winter. As I cut the fruit to dry in the dehydrator for my Solstice potpourri -- the ends (along with veggie bits too) are tossed to the green belt across the front street. The big problem here is lack of rain for several weeks! Making sure that the water bowl outside is filled every day! Casting about for rain!

That was beautiful.
I'd like to think I also never let anyone who shows up leave hungry - and that includes the plant kingdom.
