Suburban Saturday with Coffee

I realized today that I spent most of my summer indoors because it was way too hot. During the summer, I usually walk downtown and sit outside the neighborhood restaurants. (Have to remind them Black people exist in the town.?) Instead, I sat inside computer coding and catching up on my favorite shows.

It was too beautiful today to not sit outside. I’m normally a Starbucks girl (Shh! Don’t tell them!). However, today I lounged with my pumpkin spice latte at Track Five. The coffee was great and the seat was a perfect for people-watching. Glad I took the time to sit outside and enjoy the weather.

Deer Interrupted…

This doe (I’ll call her Lola) looked at me the same way when I left this morning. It was funny to see her in the same place when I came home. (I swear that’s the same deer!) Only Mother Nature’s creatures could make you think you’re interrupting something when you have a right to be there.

I even interrupted a mini-discussion between Lola and a gray cat during my morning walk. As she ran away, Lola hissed at me. Well, it sounded like a repeated sneeze. (Do deer really make noises?) Nature interrupted…

Mid-Summer Garden…

Thanks to that beautiful doe below, my hostas are done. ☹️ Poof! Gone! They were the highlight of my little garden.

Now, after that doe and her family had a party, I have hosta stems. ? I’m not the only person with hosta in my lawn area. The deer just prefer my patch because it’s closer to the woods. I could spray some deer repellent. However, I had hoped (again) that they wouldn’t touch it. ??‍♀️ I was wrong.
