Swampwalk isolation day 143

Morning walk at 730, after a heavy rain early this morning made the shade cooler, but as the sun grew stronger the mist turned to a steam bath. August gotta August, man.

While in the cooler morning shade, I saw a new [to me] neighborhood cat, that looked a *lot* like old neighbor cat Archie Wood from about a decade ago. Totally fluffernutter – longhaired orange/tan and white mix, just laying out on a front lawn, belly and paws soaking up the morning dew, looking very contented. That alone made the walk worth my while. No sign of Panda or AlienCat.

Other critters spotted were six squirrels, a gold finch, two ospreys, one turkey vulture, a few small brown birds I couldn’t identify, and a good size gang of gnats cloud-swarming in a six foot tall column. (They did not successfully communicate with me, nor did the column try to take human shape, thankfully)

An animal I did not see directly went rushing though the thick foliage on the other side of the water, gave me a bit of a fright. It was big, most likely a deer. I was more concerned it might be another human or maybe a coyote like the one I saw a few years back. The brush and leaves shook not unlike old Kong moving through the jungles of Skull Island, where you could see the wake of motion without spotting the beastie itself. I apologize to the probable deer for disturbing their breakfast.

With that, I think I am due some breakfast myself. Mrs made a yummy quiche that is calling my name. She went gangbusters this weekend, making that, a blueberry pie, stuffed cabbage, green curry veggies and homemade hummus. I am glad that her cooking skills are so awesome. Once we wade through those delicious leftovers, I am going to figure something to do with the pseudo beef, maybe meatballs or burgers?

We still have some eggs left, maybe devil some or make another quiche with broccoli and soysage? Stir fry is a possibility too. We have a nice selection of peppers.
