I spent part of the weekend at Quivira National Wildlife Refuge. It’s one of my favorite spots in the area. Of course, it’s not the best time of year to see lots of wildlife. It’s known for birds, but you often see lots of other critters around.
Saturday I spotted this deer – one of 13 that were grazing in an area near the road. This is the look of a deer that knows it’s on a game refuge and it’s not hunting season. Most of them didn’t even bother to look up, none of them ran. The couple who looked up were more annoyed than frightened by my presence.
Saturday night Greg and I went to the Fox to see the play, “Late Night Catechism.” Martha couldn’t use her tickets and passed them on. It was really hilarious. I learned the appropriate way to address a nun is, “yes, sister.” It seems to be a very versatile phrase.
The whole weekend was nice weather wise. I went out for a walk in the neighborhood this afternoon. It was great to need only a couple of layers, but not hats, scarves, gloves and coats on top of them.
The best part of the weekend was my sister in law, Mary Ann, calling Saturday morning and sounding normal. When she had lung surgery late last year they messed up one of her vocal cords so I haven’t talked to her much in months. It sounded like it was such a strain for her to talk, and my brother’s not a big talker, so I stopped calling. Fortunately, she has recovered fully and sounds normal again. I’m so thankful.
As always on Sunday night, I wish I’d gotten more accomplished over the weekend. I either have too many projects or not enough energy or some combination of the two..
