It has been a very busy week for me, so I have been neglecting updates here simply because I did not have the opportunity to sit in a cafe with an internet connection.
Aside from work I had, what I think was a visit from a bear on Saturday night. I could hear it, but I could not smell it or see it. It woke me up with banging and growling and since I was up in the loft I thought it prudent to stay there instead of climbing down to turn on the lights and draw attention to myself. The good thing is that it went away without incident. I don’t think it got one of the neighbours chickens which is where it seemed to be. (Update July 5, 2013: unfortunately two chickens were killed that night.)
In terms of great stuff, one of the awesome things happening at THO is that the fireflies are back! I know that they come back year after year but every year it surprises me and makes me so happy!
The other awesome thing is that a robin has built her nest a few feet away from the North door on a low branch in the maple tree, and she is nesting, so there will be baby robins soon I hope!
Life is great!
