Tres sorry for the lack of posting around here. We've got a lot going on right now and I fear that things will be spotty until around the 1st. Sniff. It's so disappointing to open the page and see the same old thing, isn't it? I know, I know. I'll try, but I'm just giving fair warning, OK?
Two things to remember in times of ... complication (for lack of a better word):
There is almost always time to make a vat of cookies. (Seriously, WHO eats this many cookies? This recipe made about 4 dozen!)

Oooo and Ahhhh over the resident Screech owl!!! Tecolote Fantastico!!
Isn't she fine and darling and delightful? Oh, we love, love, love having her sooooooooooo much. FinnigantheCurious named her Brownwing which looks kind of plain, but when you say it, it's a very good name indeed! Apparently many screeches are being seen out and about in broad daylight. I don't know what this means, but I fear it is a drought issue. I saw my first Bullock's Oriole recently (WOW!) and we now have precious, adorable, cuteashell Gnatcatchers all over the place. I guess they're all looking for water.
Please do remember to put out LOTS of water in your yard for the wildlife. Poor babies.
