Time is slipping by. No kidding. I turned around and found out that May is looming in the shadows. I’m still clinging to April, although I’ll admit it hasn’t been the kind of April here in Nova Scotia to make anyone get up out of bed at 2:00 in the morning to shout about. Okay, that’s extreme. I’m not sure anything warrants getting out of a warm cozy bed at 2:00 in the morning.
A few weeks back we were visited by three, beavers. While I believe in respecting all God’s creatures I’m pretty annoyed
with the destruction these guys have done to the lakeshore. I don’t like to see my trees cut down. Even some of our small apple trees Hubby grafted last year fell prey to these menaces. The evening I went down to take a photo I learned a
lesson about beavers. Don’t mess with them. One kept coming out of the water toward us and he didn’t look very happy at all. Someone on Facebook sent me a link to a news story about a man who was attacked by a beaver while taking a
photo and died when it bit him in the thigh. So be warned: Beavers may look innocent, but looks can be deceiving. I grew up thinking most wildlife was frightened of humans. I mean it’s a beaver for goodness sake!
The edits on my book are pretty much done. There might possibly be a little tweaking to do, but I expect the next time I see it will be for a proofread. The cuts I had to make went well, and didn’t end up being as painful as one might imagine. I was able to hang onto a scene that I was quite partial to even though it was one I’d considered cutting at one point. That’s about it for now. I expect the next time I post it’ll be to show yout he cover image for the new book. Yay!
Someone on Facebook asked me to post a photo of the beavers so I’ll leave you with these photos.
