Spring Full Awakening Moon
I spent a good part of today carrying former split rails from their storage place to positions along the bottom of our chain link fence facing north. After I placed them one by one, end to end, I took out a roll of baling wire–it really is an all purpose fix it tool, like duct tape–snipped off 12-18 inches pieces and wired the rails to the fence line. At some point while I had this task underway, Vega came out and sat down on my feet, not at them, between me and the fence. She just wanted to help.
(pic: this electric fence is still working.)
After moving and wiring, I let the dogs out for the afternoon because I have a meeting tonight in the city. So, I’m reading my e-mail, I look up and there going past the patio door is Kona. Uh-oh. If Kona’s out, where are the big dogs? I moved upstairs, fast, got to the deck, only to see Vega and Rigel both standing there, looking around. In this instance Kona had removed the board I used to block the gate from the fence to the lower perennial garden, the one right outside where I work on matters like e-mail, etc.
So, on the first nice day of spring, both of my inmates who tend toward escape have tested the system and found it wanting. Geez. What will next week bring?
