Weekly writing check-in: the return of the marvelous Mr. Fox

Way back in 2013/2014, we had a family of foxes that would visit from time to time, no doubt enjoying the all-you-can-eat buffet that is our backyard. (Woods on both sides and a pond straight back–lots of good eating.)

Then, they vanished.

Until yesterday. Yesterday, we had a fox in the backyard! He’s a gorgeous fellow (yes, I’m assuming here). The cell phone pic through the dirty window does not do him justice.

We’re wondering if he’s one of the kits from before, come to stake out some new territory. He’s skittish. There’s no sneaking out on the back deck without alerting him.

This morning, I caught him frolicking with a deer.

No, really. He was. Yes, I know. Pics or it didn’t happen. I wasn’t quick enough.

I don’t know if he’s just passing through or if he’ll stick around for a while. Either way, I can’t tell you how pleased I am that he’s here.

In actual writing news, I’ve been working on stories for the 2020 project. I’d like to get them all scheduled in the next couple of weeks. We’ll see if that actually happens. I’ve also been doing several admin type tasks that I should have completed earlier in the year, but you know, pandemic.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to sneak over to the window to see if there’s a fox in the backyard.

    That is so cool that you have a fox visiting! Last fall our neighbor got this pic of our backyard….a black bear! We were so shocked! Love when nature comes a visitin’!! 😁

  2. No bears here … yet. We have had coyotes, though. I keep sneaking to the back windows to see if I can catch sight of my fox. I hope he sticks around.
