    My Hunters (part 2)

    Primal Fuel
    After she gave up, I put her in the house. When I came back out, Lily had taken over the hunt! Only SHE meant business! No reaching between the slats for her. She tossed them aside like they were twigs



    I LOVE watching her tail here




    This is a video. Click on it to watch it in a new window.


    Finally, Lily was successful! She caught a mouse! Of course she didn't kill it right away I thought I'd have to kill it...but she did. Then, she saw another one! She left the 1st one (which I quickly removed) and went after the 2nd. She killed this one faster. I praised her "What a GOOD JOB Lily! You got that mouse!" Then she decided to guard the mouse.

    Well, I don't allow guarding here. She gets all evil and growly and crouches over her prey, but doesn't eat it. She can guard for HOURS! I didn't have hours, so I got the laundry basket. When Lily guards, I put the basket (upside down) over her and then remove what ever she's guarding.

    I put Josie in the house (to prevent a fight) and brought the laundry basket into the greenhouse. Lily went right at the basket to attack it. I plopped it over her and scooped up the mouse (in a pot) and then let her out. I showed it to her and said "No guarding" and I took it out and tossed it over the fence and into the field.

    Fun with pets

    Countdown to Scotland:

    58 Days, 21 Hours, 25 Minutes!

    Wednesday

    Went to the school to help with the plays @ 9. Then visited with the Drama teacher till lunch. Lunch was spent sourcing content for my 4 Home Instruction Students! At 1 I went to HI #1's place. We finished reading Lord of the Flies.

    Once home, I took the Butterflies for a walk to gather asparagus for supper. Again

    Here's tonight's haul:



    After supper, I organized some HI things.

    Someone posted this on Facebook:



    The knowledge is starting to get out there.

    I'm supremely jealous of your foraged asparagus.

    Sounds like 'miraculous frittata'. I like it.

    Friday

    Busy day, running around, Home Instruction stuff. In between students I stopped at the school, picking up more curriculum. 4 students, 3 stops at the school...After "school" I had the 2nd half of the bottle of wine. And then after supper 3 of the tiny 6 g squares of chocolate. Really, they are so tiny it seems like it takes more time to unwrap them than to eat them

    And Greensprout, we had more asparagus for supper:



    Here's my portion:
