Today was another cloudy, gray day. Dense fog this morning. No drizzle or rain today, just clouds. The forecasters changed their mind on today’s forecast and tomorrow, and now we are suppose to be partly cloudy tomorrow. Had hoped for sunny days while Philip and Lauren are here but we take what we get.
We were busy working in the house, laundry and cleaning, doing a little research and looking at plans for 2018 travel. We never saw the river otter today. We haven’t seen him since early yesterday morning. And contrary to what one person suggested, we did not make sausage out of him. Although we did consider trap and release especially if we saw duck feathers. However, we suspect he may have eaten most of the available fish and frogs and moved on to greener pastures. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen our ducks today either. Maybe if the otter is gone, the ducks will return. While looking for the ducks we did see a pretty doe coming to the pond for water. That was our only wildlife siting today.
Philip and Lauren arrived just in time for dinner. Dorothy and Tabitha have grown so much since June when we saw them last. We didn’t really have much time to spend with them this evening because by the time dinner was over it was time for them to get ready for bed. Looking forward to good times with family this weekend.
