Lots to read in this collection of articles from women in science by CellPress. I’d probably add that dissolving Elsevier would be another great step for women in science, but alright…
Had some visitors this week stopping by for early morning offers!
I talked about how I put a trail cam out. We have been having deer visitors for a while, a mother and tow small ones, we think. Well, I thought I finally caught deer dad. Looks like he is 4 years old?
The old lady-puppies got groomed today. Funny enough, getting grooming appointments was way difficult here after moving to the Pacific Northwest, everyone was booked so we had to drive into Portland; and the results were mediocre. This time, I got an appointment with a mobile groomer pretty easily, and they did such a good job!
Caught these guys on the way to the trash! In German, they are called “washing bears” because they like to catch food from water, and it looks like they are washing it. Since they usually are solitary, I think this is a mother with two little ones.
Here is why:
Meadow mushrooms growing just outside. This is one of two sheets that get roasted today, with at least 2-3 times more still growing outside. We checked with a friend that knows mushrooms; and we’re going to be careful not just digging in, but very certain these are edible. They definitely are tasty 🙂
Today, before going to the store, I did a little detour to check out Whipple Creek Regional Park, do a little walk. It’s very beautiful, and I loved that there were ferns growing in the moss on trees.
