Tuesdaily with plans gone awry...

This morning, instead of writing while I had childcare, I made phone calls... and ordered a new phone. I dropped mine while vacuuming, and shattered the screen. ARGH. A hundred times ARGH. Then I talked to government agencies on the phone (the lengthy verdict being that I needed to call and order MORE forms to fill out), and tried to reserve a car rental (they were closed) and dealt with paperwork. Did I mention ARGH?

Now I am sitting down to work on orders, but wanted to blog now while I could.

Here is a photo from yesterday - Snow White and I from our walk. A facepalm seemed appropriate to my morning.



Oh, and one catch-up note from Friday. On my way to pick up childcare Friday morning, a dark fox ran across the road in front of us. I thought it was just a dark cross fox, which I've seen in the area, but it paused on the side of the road as we passed and I got a really good look. It was actually a BLACK fox, utterly pitch black except for the white tail tip, and simply gorgeous. I've never seen one before!

Orders, and I think I will crank up some tunes.

I couldn't remember how to spell the word *melanistic*, and in looking it up…
"There are three color phases in addition to the red phase. The melanistic phase is black; the silver phase is black with white tips; and the cross phase is red with black across the shoulders and back."
Interesting bits about foxes!

I've had the Leucism phase of a blue jay in my dad's back yard recently. Those are white without being albino.

What a sight! :)

I've been told that there are rare cases of our native foxes being white or black, but so far all I've seen is red, red, red - or rather orange. :p
