So this morning, I looked out my window to see 4 mule deer meandering through our fields.

Then, when I headed down the driveway, a little one, likely born this spring, all fuzzy for winter with the CUTEST face and HUGEST MOST ADORABLE ears was standing looking under a roped off part of our fence (it will eventually have a gate, for now there are just two strands of rope). I noticed another more mature deer standing behind it in the field. The baby looked at me (I stopped, and was QUIET) for the longest time, all cute and thoughtful and sweet. Then it delicately stepped through the two ropes and went across the driveway in front of me, to the other field.

Where three more deer - another baby and two does -- were waiting. They ambled down the field, aware of me and my car, and ready to flee if they had to, but fairly relaxed as long as the car didn't make odd sounds. They eventually stopped and started to graze on a bush. Their friend on the other side of the driveway "hid" in the tress and waited for me to leave, so it could join his herd.

It was just lovely.

And those EARS!! And that nose. Baby deer seriously rival foals in cuteness!!

One of these fawns, by the way, was very probably the one born in that same field earlier this year. We are pretty blessed where we live. :D.

You have all irreparably affected me. I just wrote the following in an IM to my BOSS:

"you've got some time to think about Big!Fun! project." *shame*

Also, I delivered a last minute project on time, and it was done well and with panache and style. And I didn't get all stressed about it. Go. team. me!

Dad's surgery has been confirmed for tomorrow morning, first thing. He has to be at the hospital at 6AM. It's nice to be moving ahead (I think - it's also scary) and this delay has been good, as we are all a little more ready. The first date scheduled was So. Fast. With the delays, we've all had some time to get used to the idea and to get stuff in order. And Dad has had some time to rest and build his health. But now it's time, as he is uncomfortable A LOT of the time. It's major surgery, but hopefully all will go well (he's got a GREAT medical team!) and he wil get some real relief and health back when he recovers. I just need to keep reminding myself that he's a fighter!

and JJ was all sweet and gave me lovely snuggles before work this morning. I left early, because I needed to get Rush!Project! done, and it was dawn. The morning star (Venus, isn't it actually?) hung in the East in a beautiful indigo sky, and the waning moon hung in the west, and JJ gave me snuffles and blows.

And driving in 6 (!) deer went across the road in front of me and ran up the hill. It was beautiful. I am so blessed to live here.
