Pig and farm report

I feel equal parts energetic and rebecca-small-r tragic yesterday I baked this delicious and amazing loaf of bread stuffed with gruyere cheese roasted tomatoes and basil from my garden today I swapped out my spring duvet cover for my winter duvet cover then I paid my property taxes which were not due until Halloween actually on Halloween which is altogether hinky but I kept thinking about the enormous sum of it the Halloween of it the power of the receipt in my hidey place kept creeping up on me and I’d worry worry worry and so I just did it I paid online early then I bought myself a pair of bright red boots they’re good for navigating out here and that’s pretty much all I wear now boots in the winter surfer flip flops in the summer the rebecca-small-r tragic part is me feeling like I should be a super woman who can read a pattern and sew a mask sew ten or twenty masks! sew 40,000 masks! masks for everyone! but I can’t even read a book these days and when I look at a pattern the lines and measurements swim across the paper or website or page in a distressing way and I refuse to explain myself further or be shamed by my lack because fuck it look at this biscuit light loaf of deliciousness that I baked and I paid my property taxes like a grown up and also no one can rock a pair of red boots like I can


I have been tending to Hal’s cold by locking him in the bathroom with me for twenty minutes twice a day with the shower going full blast hot and the fan off so we both get the benefits of a sauna me for my girly complexion Hal for his crusty boogers I also attempt to smear erythromycin ointment into his literal eyeball which is enflamed and trust me he is still very feral when it comes to having anybody poke around in his eyeball and I am too I’m taking him to our covid free vet Friday which means stuffing him into his wee crate then waiting in my car in the vet’s parking lot as they check him out inside their office I am okay with this arrangement because I have not forgot last January when after wrangling Wolfie to the hot vet office I fainted right there on the goddamn floor like a Victorian spinster though I did not fall I just sat on a chair quickly then sloped onto the floor Hal is a little better today he has been howling for attention and he ate mightily and he “helped” me swap out my duvet covers but he surely does look like a drunk little pirate with his sneezes and his wonky eyeball 

this morning I met this basketball sized wasp nest hanging from a slender madrona branch behind my house hello I said to the many many very busy wasps while slowly backing away from the nest there is no way I’m crawling all the way up a ladder at night in the pitch black woods to contain them while they sleep nope we have agreed to live together peacefully yay nature


I spied a tiny house in a tree near the beach not a treehouse and yet a treehouse all the same with windows with lacy curtains and a proper pointed roof and power and a tiny tiny yard with weird small playground toys in it now I go there every day and just stare at it as it is fabulous beyond belief I can tell someone is living there so no picture but still I keep staring as I pass because it is pure magic

I wish I could see the magic treehouse! Glad Hal’s appetite is good. I have to take my Charlie Friday, same wait in your car arrangement at the vet. I’ve suddenly become responsible for my brother in laws two dogs, I’m learning a lot and they are sweet beasts but I’ve been a cat lady most of my life. I’m doing the best I can and Charlie’s been a really good sport about the situation. It been nearly 3 months since he slipped into a coma, I know the dogs must be pining for him.
You bake the prettiest, most drool worthy loaves! Much love.
Xoxo

Dearest grown up Rebecca, proud of you all the way! The OMG bread and red boots!! You are rocking this change of season. I need boots.
You are a good nurse, Hal is grateful, pretty sure.
The wasps will leave when winter comes and leave that cool looking nest/hive/house.
And you are more polite than I have ever been when it comes to taking pictures. I just take.

There is nothing wrong with a woman who can make a loaf of bread that looks like that. Your energies have merely shifted, perhaps like the earth's as fall approaches.
What a good cat mama you are to do the vet thing. I wish all the best and speedy recovery for your drunk little pirate.
I want to see the tiny magic tree house too. It sounds enchanted.

Linda isn’t that nest a gorgeous piece of nature? Seasonal cusps always energize me for some reason. I took a photo of the backend of the little little house. They’re building a wee white picket fence around it now. I will post later today.XO

Dearest Rosemarie remember a few scant years ago when I was sewing dresses and buying patterns like nobody’s business? Blarghhh. Don’t know if it’s my BPD or covid brain but most of the time I wait patiently for reading to return to me. Let’s break bread together in the future.XO
