Weeds, Birds, Compost, and Gravy

In spite of 4 hours of weed eating yesterday, today there was still more.  But now I have it done.  All good for another month

I was taking a break marveling at the diversity of bird life here.   In a few minutes, I observed ducks, geese, mockingbirds, blue jays, wrens, doves, swifts, sparrows, crows, hummingbird, kill deer, black capped chickadees, cardinals, and hawks.   I guess we are suceeding at making a wildlife friendly habitat.  Almost forgot, chickens, too.  

I was tossing plants into the compost when I got a pleasant surprise.  The Cattaleya Orchids which I were sure were done in by winters, and some Champanellte grape cuttings from last year were alive, just not showing it yet.  I quickly repotted them in some great soil.   Hopefully they'll come back strong now.
So its 4 o'clock and I am toast.   Decided to make a little custom gravy with everything in the kitchen sink boiling down, chicken, beef, and pork along with all kinds of ingredients.  Might be great, might be horrible, but it won't kill ya.

So much more to write, but so tired.   Maybe later.
