ooofta, its not the heat!

here in Northern Minnesota it is so hot, ish!  Sleeping at night is nearly impossible because of the humidity. We don’t have air conditioning as for 360 days of the year we don’t need it. The other night I got up at 3am and looked outside and was surprised to see a fox in front of our garage eating a snack.  the nightlight attracts moths and this little fury friend found a real eight course meal.  It was fun watching him dance with the bugs and snapping them up into his little mouth.  The heat didn’t seem to bother him, even though he has a fur coat.

I marvel at the animals that venture into our little piece of Heaven on Earth. We have a woodchuck living under our storage shed, deer roam everywhere eating my ornamental bushes….bear lumber through as well.

Skunks, porky pines and of course rabbits are common visitors to our acre and a half.

Sure it is hot and humid, but there is always something going on to keep you occupied until sleep comes.
