Note to self:

Remember that the eyes looking at you at night from the woods are most likely only deer.  
No but seriously there were at least 5 pairs of eyes.  I couldn't tell what they were.  I was walking across the field to get to my house which is about 500 feet away. Well it felt like 5000 ft. When I looked into the woods and noticed the eyes looking at me and because I had a head lamp I could see the eyes but not the bodies. Any-hoot I hightailed it back to the car as soon as I saw them. LOL! My heart was beating really fast. I was trying to figure out what I was going to do.  I contemplated sleeping in the car...I texted my friend on the land trust and told her the situation.  She responds LOL and said thats hilarious! but you gotta know she is a tough chick and lived up here during the winter in a tent! She said they were probably only deer because it was rare to see coyote eyes and that if they didn't move they were deer and said if you sing a really loud song any coyotes will take off too.  So she gave me the courage to get out of the car and walk across the field.  So I sang a really loud song on my way across the field about how I was going to eat them if they came close which is a lot to say for someone who is vegan. Needless to say I made it alive without getting eaten back to my tiny house.


  1. LOL, I am laughing, picturing this (even though I know it was not so funny experiencing it), I'm sorry. I can just see you my dear! <3
