In non-weather news, the heron is BACK. He or she (Henry or Henrietta - take your pick) has come several days this week - each time arriving early in the morning. I've been running out of the house like a madwoman, screaming and waving my arms each time I spot him or her. What an amazing bird - really beautiful and seemingly intelligent (I managed to snap a photo of it checking out our netting contraption). This morning, it flew off of our ROOF! The foreman was upstairs and looked out the balcony to see it fly off. We're taking all the safety precautions we can - but short of camping out there, there isn't much we can do. My hope is that the heron will find an easier pond to visit.
Went to an interesting holistic medical class for bunnies today at Sonoma Humane Society. It was taught by a local vet who treats dogs and cats and bunnies - always good to have a back-up vet for the bunnies. I can't really see Wasabi sitting still for acupuncture, but if Rufus ever needs it, he'd probably do well. I learned about "cool" and "warm" herbs and took notes about what kind of herbs to mix for runny eyes (which Wasabi sometimes gets), etc. It was great to be in a room full of other bunny lovers!
Also went this week for the second time to Muir's Tea Room in Sebastopol - such a cute and awesome place where all the fare is vegan (and you would never guess it!). I'm not really a tea drinker but could become one with an establishment like this around!
And very exciting: Bravo and I had a field trip to see the community garden in Sebastopol where Grandma Snap has her very own plot! Plot #9, to be exact. She's been busy weeding and amending soil and planting...so far, tomatoes and marigolds - looking forward to visiting again to see how it is all blooming!
And While Buffalo turquoise cuff!
