Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
Rain dumped from the sky this week, filling Lake Junebug. If it were a little warmer, Sweet Cheeks and I could go skinny dipping.
Although I tired of the rain, some of my friends at work were pleased with it and were out in full force.
I hope you can see the little bit of duck under the bushes. It's a mama on her nest.
I visited her almost every day for weeks. On my last day of training at work, she rose a little on her nest, and I knew babies were hatching.
Two days later, there she was in the parking lot with her offspring following. They were adorably fluffy and cheepy.
This protector made sure I kept my distance.
A few days later, another mama on the nest showed up in a less protected area. Her babies didn't make up.
One morning I greeted her.
That afternoon, she was gone.
I continue to keep an eye on my friends.
I could tell you that I've returned to blogging regularly, but I know better. I'm tired at the end of the work day, when household tasks and dogs await me. I'm happy to report that I still like my job. I'm treated well. I'll stop by to see you as often as I can.
Infinities of love,
