Monday Musings

There have been moments lately when I feel like the universe is quietly laughing at me. As a curious soul, I’m always looking for more information and new thoughts, but things have gone in an extremely strange direction since the pandemic began. I’ve discovered that some days I’m very close to being a vegetarian and how did I reach my fifties without knowing cauliflower is available in my favorite color and that I’m very happy to substitute gnocchi and Halloumi cheese for meat and have developed a cherry tomato obsession.

As I’ve spent more time hanging out with the wildlife than people, I was shocked to discover that some western cousins of my favorite little chipmunks carry the plague. The title of the article carried the statement “but don’t worry (too much).” Guess what, yep I’m a worrier and look at little chipper some days as suspiciously as I look at people attending crowded events.

If that wasn’t bad enough, then I read that deer have tested positive for antibodies of the virus that causes COVID-19 and that Harper and I can easily be distracted by the morning glare of the sun

and bunnies running along the path while not realizing we’re standing next to a snake.

As much as I try to walk a peaceful path of thoughts, I hear the quiet laugh of the universe in the rustling leaves.

  4. No, not the chipmunks! And deer… too much information, definitely time to be less curious!
    We saw two deer today, part of the herd of five (is five a herd?) that enjoys wandering up and down the tidal zone outside the office. My colleague and I were grazing, as were the two deer – we all looked in good health!
    Snakes? Never enjoyed those encounters…

    1. I’ve told my backyard visitors not to be roaming around with strangers and I’m not going to ready any articles about turkeys!! Still not looking good for Kane, but it was fun to watch Mourinho’s first win this season with Roma.🙂

  5. Deers can test positive??? Oh utter and confounded Heck. I didn’t know you could get different colours of Cauli, and I am also addicted to cherry tomatoes-nice juicy snacks on hikes. Watch out for them snakes.
