These are the first days of fall. The wind
at evening smells of roads still to be traveled
while the sound of leaves blowing across the lawns
is like an unsettled feeling in the blood
…thus begins Autumn for our part of the world – and the frantic Reverse Squirrelization of your pal Musette. March and I both have that ‘unsettled feeling’ – and we both assuage it with really deep cleaning (I know I’ve written about that before but (insert shrug emoji)… but this year? I took it to ELEVEN!
But I cannot write about it now because I just came from Physical Therapy and I. Am. BEAT! The 14.6′ fence really did a number on my shoulder but I am resistant to surgery, so we’re doing some intense work to rebuild the muscles surrounding the tear (which we’re hoping will mend with scar tissue). I’m wearing the latest in Kinesiology tape (it comes in PINK!, too!) and I’m just whupped. So I’ll tell you all about Reverse Squirrelization next post, okay?
In the meantime, tell me something – anything – I’ll have M. Jacques poke a paw for a couple of fall scent samples as a thank you for letting me be so damb lame this go-round.
