overcast, breezy, temps 11
Quite chilly this morning, but became nicer in the afternoon as the winds died down a bit and the day warmed up.
Bear returned last night. Ripped off the third and final bird feeder...it was screwed onto the end of the post and it took it off completely.
Last night I kept waking up, thinking I heard the bear...went downstairs, turned on the outside lights...first time I saw a plump skunk - which seemed undeterred by the light and eventually waddled away. The next time I woke up to noise and snuck downstairs to find two massive racoons. Now, I would have probably concluded those racoons had done the damage had the bear not gifted us with such a massive pile of poop.
We seem to have a wilflife zoo happening at night here.
I suspect we won't see much more of the bear since there's nothing left to get in to.
Wrote for most of today. Need to head in to Montreal tomorrow. Taxes for Michael and dentist and hairdresser for me. I can't tell you how many times Michael's asked, 'So, have you called the hairdresser?' 'Do you have an appointment yet?' 'Your hair looks ridiculous and your dead mother has asked me to tell you that.' OK, he didn't actually say that last thing, but I heard it anyway with my accute hearing.
So, the appointment is made. And not with the local village barber this time.
Pray for me. Will report back.
