After yesterday afternoon’s 90°+ heat, we attempted to sleep through a lightning storm flashing brilliantly, even through our opaque Roman shades. There was no thunder or rain, only lightning. Normalcy resumes; the temperature is in the 60’s and clouds cover the sky with no blue in sight.
Effie naps. She spent a few hours in Effieland earlier this morning. The bugs are returning from their winter holiday, and Effie was digging up beetles. She prefers crickets and mantises, but they will arrive later.
Spring asserts its hold for now. Winter is not inclined to return; summer put in a preview performance yesterday, but after taking her bow, she properly conceded the stage to Spring.
Effie looks forward to tasty bugs. I look forward to watching her make amazing leaps catching them, on the wing and on the ground. My own aspiration is almost as dramatic: I look forward to catching a Steelhead. >><<<<<>°
I wish I could learn this skill from Effie. . . .
