07:10, 51F, clear and calm. roosters up. yellow dogs at back door.
the yellow dogs are cross-bred. their mom was the guard dog, xena pearl, and their dad is reddog, a brick-red labrador. they are big dogs and have always been the yard dogs along with their dad but dixie was born and raised in the sheep yard and is familiar with the sheep. all the dogs, right now, are confused and still waiting for xena to appear and get on their case about something..
10:55, medium high tide at CK. low 60's, NW wind, 10-15 knts. wi. gusts up to 20 knts. a good day for washing and drying nets. 1 bait seine, 1 trawl cleaned and mended today. have the same to do tomorrow. ospreys quiet today. one was eating a mullet. high tide all day with white-caps. hardly any ducks or other birds apparent due to the strong winds. egrets were hunting through the marsh grass, though.
16:40, still high tide. no ducks, just egrets and one great blue. windy inland, too.
17:10, upper 60's at the farm, wind from the north. got 3 eggs. watered all my plants since it's supposed to get into the upper 30's tonight. my tomatos already have fruit so hoping they won't be damaged. brought some more firewood to the house.
20:10, 63F. venus bright. waxing crescent moon above the donkey woodlot briefly before disappearing. did not go out into the pasture this evening. mars bright straight above. used all my split lighter last month so had to use a lighter knot to get the fire going. smoky but it lit. smells good actually, esp. outside.. still have the living room door open. the fire is homey. the cat should appear momentarily. yellow dogs circling the house. when ever I go out to get a piece of wood for the fire, they bark at me. smelled a skunk earlier.
