A Foxy Day

As most of you know, I live in the country. Well, this morning, I looked out my window and hollered at my husband to come and see. A most beautiful and gorgeous fox was on our lawn hunting for lunch. I ran for the camera but wasn't quick enough, only caught the end of his tail. - Darn it! I think he will probably be back because he did catch something in our neighbour's yard - either a mouse or a squirrel. We couldn't tell but he did throw it up a couple of times.

Yesterday, we drove to Moncton - almost three hours from here to visit my sick MIL. She is 87 years and is still living in her own apartment. She has severe arthritis and osteoporosis. She is on a lot of medication and is affecting her mentally and physically. Hopefully, if they can get the pain under control, she will be able to recuperate enough to stay by herself. DD went down today to visit with her. DD had to drive her DH to Moncton to catch the bus to Nova Scotia for the first part of his training for his new job. It is raining quite heavy here right now, so I hope DD will be careful coming back.

DH is back to renovations and I better get my act together and get doing laundry and clean up as well.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hopefully the fox will be back...the apartments I used to live inbacked up to some woods and there was a red fox who lived in there. We didn't get to see him very often, but we sure looked for him. They are so pretty.

Too bad you couldn't get a picture of Foxy. Hope they can get you MIL's pain under control.

It's too bad you didn't get to the camera in time :o( We haven't seen our fox at all this year. Maybe he/she moved on.
