Today was pretty mellow, which was great. We love mellow! Everyone seemed at ease. The weather was nice, so we had a lunch forage for the seven. Everyone was grooming and lounging in the warm green house. Honey B, Willy B, and Mave enjoyed hanging out in their playrooms and watching the painters paint the exterior of the new building. I think the highlight of today would be Negra and Jamie having a long grooming session in the green house! That interaction isn’t something we see often. Of course, there is no photo evidence either. So, since it was a pretty quiet day at the chimp house I thought I would leave you with a quote. I recently read the book, The Boy The Mole The Fox and The Horse by Charlie Mackesy. This book is filled with beautiful illustrations and kind thoughtful words. If anyone is ever looking for a quick and uplifting read please check it out. So I will leave you all with this: “Nothing beats kindness,” said the horse “It sits quietly beyond all things.”
Please enjoy some photos I was able to capture from this afternoon’s lunch forage.
Burrito was searching high and low for lettuce.
Foxie was pretty pleased with her findings.
Missy took her lettuce to go and found some good views too.
Jamie has many different strategies when it comes to foraging. For example, you can free your hands up by holding your lettuce with your foot.
I love this photo of her. She looks like she is up to know good, but really she is just enjoying some lettuce… and maybe plotting something too!
Annie was busy collecting all the food people left behind.
And Neggie <3.
Honey B, Willy B, and Mave all looking out of playroom 2 windows, spying on Jamie out on Young’s Hill.
Yesterday, I was hanging out with Honey B in her new favorite place- the reading corner, the chubby, or the nook. She was being her silly self and letting me take pictures while she watched herself in the camera reflection and occasionally tried to kiss her reflection.
I hope you all have a mellow week full of kindness.
