last night's task was this:
chase a young porcupine out of the yard.
it seems easy, right? well.
these creatures know they are armored
and have, apparently only fishers as enemies.
(and traffic)
anyway, with wendy living here,
and three other dogs as regular visitors
i can't welcome porkys.
i had to be mean, 
yell and nudge it with a basswood branch.
i hate this.
 the magic lilies are up
grey dogwood is producing food for grouse, 
among other birds.
 i worked all day on lokta, five sheets prepped, two spun
trying to map out a couple of books. 
i leave sunday for a workshop
