north florida - wild florida

By: marsHen , 1:04 PM GMT on January 17, 2013

06:20, 64F, some faint stars. clouds moving in. lamb bottles heating. pup outside. yellow dogs at back door getting on pup's case. roosters crowing.
07:40, 64F, drizzling. got lambs fed and pup inside before drizzle started. newly planted pines are getting a sprinkle! pileated woodpecker sounding off in donkey woodlot.
10:30. 63F, west wind, 15-20 knts., gusts to 30. fog. cabbage palms gyrating along the causeway. low tide rising at #4 bridge with ducks and whitecaps.
lab cat was thrilled to see me. he was hungry. wind ferocious by the nets. mended several rips but the chill got to me. monthly meeting with pizza = heartburn.
15:40, 60F, west wind 13-22, overcast. beautiful hooded mergansers fishing in sheltered cove. waves at the sand spit. immature ibis poking about in the spartina. grackles totally unable to fly against the wind.
14:15. low 60's, windy from NW, slowly clearing. bon fire still burning in this wind. they have a fire permit and keep piling the trees onto the fire. since the wind's switched direction, the smoke is going to the trailer-hood instead of the farm.
17:40, 56F, hahahaha - too windy to build a fire in the fireplace tonight.. donkey's got hay. sheep have to clean theirs up. got 3 eggs.
19:30, 52F, partly cloudy. waxing crescent moon above the farm house. jupiter and stars. dogs smelled something in the cactus field but I didn't bite ... eerie glow of bon fire in the cow field. very surreal.
