Flying, Buzzing, Humming & Stinging Critters
Luckily we haven't seen any murder hornets yet, but we've been hearing about them! However, another kind of stinging beast came to call, a while ago.
Luckily these bees came and only stayed less than a day. I prefer the humming critters! We've had a lot of competition, though. We've had to work hard to attract them this year. So many people are "staycationing" this year and looking for bird entertainment. Birdseed is sometimes out of stock!
What is it with all the chameleons and lizards and geckos this year?
We share the patio with them every night. They like chips and popcorn.
At the Cabin
We've been lucky to be able to escape to our cabin every few weeks. I wasn't able to catch a photo of the roadrunner that I saw, last time.
But, Don got a photo of this deer, waiting for me to fill the bird feeder... so she could enjoy.
At the cabin, we also saw this eerie little stick bug.
I found this nifty locust shell on our front sidewalk. I haven't seen one of these, practically since I was a kid. I had a little fun attaching his claws to Don's shirt. That's what we kids used to do.
Sweet Friends This Morning
So I've enjoyed some odd and curious critters, during these slow months of home stay. This morning I was rewarded with the nicest surprise of them all.
Little Miss Independent, is my very favorite!
Cancer - Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
