Today was cool, cloudy, and unbelievably vividly green. Norfolk’s famous crepe myrtles are all leafy again. It looks like someone poked the air with a pin a glowing green primordial ooze is seeping out into the world.
Between cloudbursts we popped over to the zoo to eat our pb&j lunch. A peacock thought Eloise was pretty cute and ran at her, tail feathers unfurled, cawing. She did not like that one bit. I had to chase him off.
We also saw the boa constrictor eating a rabbit. “Oh no!” said Eloise. This week she’s also started saying “wanna get down,” “applesauce,” and “elephant.” And giving kisses. SO CUTE.
We finally saw the new CHEETAHS. Then we ran home because it was raining.
