night watch,
a game between human and white tail deer.
after the big snow
down the hill as we say
you can see tracks there.
but more, there are tracks
like a stitcher gone mad
all over my lawn.
made a little later than this.
for me, i am glad it's winter now
and their tick passengers
have hunkered down deep 
and aren't peppering my lawn or
the hill.
or, for that matter,
my tender skin.
 lazy time stitching 
echoes outdoor activity.

Yes, good the ticks are hunkered down! Especially because I am finally getting to the leaf cleaning. I usually rake, but I'm so behind I borrowed a backpack leaf blower and am about to go out and contribute to sound pollution in the neighborhood. EEK!

Happy stitching, guess its that transition time from dyeing to sticthing? A wonderful Saturday to you.
