Pingy-Dingy Wednesday – Local Wildlife Haven

Kathleen Delany-Adams, my sweet femme sister down in Atlanta, just got her yard certified as a Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. She says it took three years, but it’s more than worth it. They have 11 different feeding stations for various creatures, five bird baths, including one for bees, and to top it all off, their yard is also a certified monarch way station!

Thank you, Kathleen, you fierce femme critter lover. You fucking rock!

We, too, can aspire to offering solace to pollinators and local wildlife:

I’m a typewriter whompin’, card catalogue lovin’ white girl from back in the day, and I yearn for a time before the covers of trade paperbacks were all squidgy, so you can imagine that I don’t actually understand what a pingback is. I do know that it can in some way be part of spreading the love, and since that’s what I’m all about at The Total Femme… every Wednesday, I pay homage to the laughter, love, and inspiration to be had elsewhere online.

At the Total Femme, my intention is to post three times a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy-Dingy Wednesday on Wednesday and Femme Friday on Friday. Rather than play catch-up in a stressful fashion on those weeks when life prevents posting, I have decided to just move gaily forward: if I miss a Monday, the next post will be on Wednesday, and so on. Thank you, little bottle of antibiotics for inspiring me in this! (“…if it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a missed one.”)
