Last night there was a crow on our back patio. It was clearly in distress, and died after not too long. Concerned about diseases like west Nile, I contacted a couple wildlife rehabilitators, and they suggested contacting Tufts Wildlife Clinic in the morning. The clinic said they didn’t test for these things, and that I could leave the crow in the woods. Online resources had recommended double bagging it and putting it in the trash, but I didn’t feel at all good about that, and much preferred the suggestion from Tufts. So the crow is now resting alongside the Charles River.
We went out to dinner tonight, and while the sky looked threatening as we ate, nothing came of it. On our way to the restaurant, Doug recalled that the last time we went out to eat (March 12), we were at this same restaurant.
It was so amazing and wonderful to have Kat and Bob over in real life, and just chat and hang out. I miss our friends terribly, and look forward to gradually getting back together with people.
I was walking around the yard when something fell from the sky, very nearly hitting me on the head. It appears to be the remains of an apple or a pear, enjoyed by some squirrel and then dropped when I was underneath. Jerk.
Our Imperfect Foods list this week included “carrots, approx 1 lb.” I like carrots, so I bumped it to approximately 2 pounds. And that is what they sent us, just not quite as I expected.
When I pour myself a glass of cold water on a warm summer day, sometimes I like to add a slice of lemon. For some reason, Doug and I have this running gag that whenever we are out for dinner, and water is served with lemon, we both are obligated to comment, “There’s lemon in the water.” I don’t know how or why this started.
Next on the “recipes for raspberries” gallery…. raspberry/cherry popsicles. Perfect for a 90+ degree day.
Haven’t eaten one yet, but it sure looks yummy. We are the Raspberry Kings.
This is what I did today. For work.
Ferrous went into the living room and guarded this toy very closely for 5 or 10 minutes, then he was done with it. Funny boy.
