Tuesday 12 August 2014: Dragonflies and windy days...
1628/365: ... I don't know how much longer the dragonfly survived, but it didn't seem too perky when I ended up with it crawling over my hand in a buzzy but slow exploration. And they have horrible hooky feet... and strangely intelligent looking faces.
A fact the cat appreciate when it flew off my hand and into the honeysuckle, onto be met by the cat who wanted to inspect its wise little face on a more intimate basis. I pulled her off. Lifted up the dragonfly... and tried to move it to another bit of garden. It flew again. She pounced. Missed. I took it to the front garden and crossed my fingers that it would be at least temporarily okay!
Other than work today, I've also made granola, soup, a couple of loaves and squeezed in a 5 mile run. And walked to the shop to get a couple of things. And done a bit of gardening. And dug up potatoes. And picked blackberries. And made dinner. And done some cleaning.
Moo asked me a while ago whether being an adult was fun.
It sure is busy if nothing else!
PS And you have to make time for fun
PPS ... but yes, it can be fun, Moomie. Don't worry!
