north florida - wild florida

By: marsHen , 11:53 AM GMT on January 08, 2012

06:30, 45F, clear. stars out, big yellow planet overhead. probably foggy but can't see that far. rooster quiet. guard dog at back door. oatmeal..
misty, not foggy.. big doe running across the south field. she jumped the fence into the donkey field and disappeared into the dog fennel.
09:00, very low tide at CK. birds out fishing. ducks in leads.. sunny, but chilly in church.
a pleasant afternoon at the farm even though I had to clean out the dog kennel. sunny, low 70's.
afterwards I sat in the back yard with some of the dogs and watched the birds. got a cushion for my adirondack chair and I think we all ended up taking a brief nap out there. there were warblers all over the place and two pileated woodpeckers in the cabbage palm eating left-over berries. then they flew to the pecan trees and made a racket. crows were making a racket, too but didn't see any hawks or owls around. most of my life is a mystery..
18:15, 62F, mostly clear but some cirrus in the east. full moon coming up over the cactus field. was looking for it when I fed the donkeys earlier but missed it rising. think there must have been a cloud bank because all of a sudden - there it was - low through the pines and beautiful.. jupiter up above. missed venus.
built a little fire when the temps dropped to 58..
but there's not much firewood out front. oh well..
