07:10, 65F, calm, orange sunrise. roosters up. song birds singing. crows stealing cat food. got another mouse. it's heading down to the hay barn to live in the world of talon and fang..
10:30, med. low tide in CK. red-tailed hawk crossed road along the way.. swallow-tailed kite hunting in pine tops off 345. no ducks at # 4 bridge, just herons fishing and some shorebirds picking through the mud flat to the west. low to mid 70's. SW wind 6 knts. sunny. fed the fish, worked on the trawl. got the bait seine put away.
shrimp guy was on the road so got some shrimp for supper. picked up tomato and pepper plants from a friend who was kind enough to get them from lowes in g'ville. the moon will be right for planting this weekend!
16:00, very high tide going out. ducks all over.
was happy to see them. was afraid they might have headed north already.
16:30, sun at the back door = 99F. slight breeze from SW. everyone snoozing except the rooster.
18:40, 81F, sunny. thought about starting chores. got 3 eggs. trapped one mouse. took it down to the sheep barn. house feels warm.
19:30, 75F, fed sheep and donkeys and took a walk with the dogs.
21:00m 69F, clear. cooler outside than inside. stars and planets out. waiting for the new crescent moon!
