The bats finally headed south for the winter. The first real cold snap lowered the insect populations enough that the bats needed to head out. I did my last program and it was fun but the bats did not fly out for over an hour after I started so I had to talk for a very very long time.
We have also established that Lime the duck is a girl. She has started laying duck eggs for us. Interestingly she digs a hole in the straw and then covers the egg when she is done. It is like an easter egg hunt everyday here.
Not sure when the time went and every time I thought to write it seemed so hard to start again. But the winds of today just died down with the setting of the sun. My cat, Darhma, is curled up next to me and it seemed a good time to write. I am feeling good, only one week of work left and the season will be over. I am excited for the changes to come--still debating names--if anyone has any suggestions I would welcome them. We are focused on Indian names so let me know--esp for a boy it seems hard to find one that we both like.
