Lazy Days

We have been very lazy since our whirlwind 2600 mile train journey. We've barely ventured outside our yard, preferring to stay close to home in our comfort zone. We've been reading all about Harriet Miers, Tom DeLay, Bill Frist, Karl Rove's fourth grand jury appearance. We recommend John Dean's article from Findlaw on the case against Tom DeLay. Also, you might want to check out Michael Isikoff's article on Rove and Miller, which is a pretty good read.
But mostly we're enjoying the cool fall weather. The yard is full of life these days. Some new birds showed up at the feeder, and the dragonflies are still flitting about the pond. A spider built its web around the garden hose and trapped a colorful meal, while an unsuspecting wasp sits just above the action.
This is our second fall in the pacific northwest.

Surprising to see a northern flicker on the feeder. They usually prefer eating ants on the ground.
