Squirrely day

This is almost another afternoon post but we’ll get back to our
regular schedule soon. Most of the problem lies with my cooking.
I made 5 quarts of au gratin potatoes that looked and smelled so
good the wife and I ate most of it for our late lunch. After the
meal I got lazy and laid down for a nap, slept 2 hours, and then
couldn’t fall back asleep until the wee hours of the morning.

Yesterday after chores were done I went outside to get a few
pictures of birds eating the bird seed only to discover a
squirrel chowing down and another in a nearby tree waiting his
turn. These are the first squirrels I’ve seen since early fall
when they were burying acorns for the winter.

These critters are fun to watch but a little too destructive
for my liking. The two spotted yesterday seemed to be on their
best behavior though and scampered off when they noticed me
standing nearby with my camera. Guess I’ll put out some cracked
corn for the four legged critters along with the bird seed.

And if one looked up yesterday the clouds had an odd look to
them. Some were well defined while others foggy. Not sure what
caused this yet it was interesting to watch. Since I am once
again late with the chores we’ll leave it there.

Enjoy our Wednesday as we’ll have to wait a week to see
another one. Now I’m having more coffee before the getting to
the chores.
Comments are always welcome.

    I’ve noticed over the past several days that you have lots of birds, squirrels and even geese flying over~they should’ve left long ago, but I figure the more than seasonable weather we’re having is the reason. At this point they may as well stick around till spring. I love all the pic’s of the critters! We’re getting snow here in PA and the temps are dropping into the mid 20’s~winter has arrived here.

    Mamabear,
    I finally got the viewfinder of my camera close to where I want it so am taking more pictures. We always thought geese flew south for the winter but I’ve even seen ducks on a nearby creek on a cold day. We’re going to get snow here Friday night and Saturday so
    we’ll see if any critters leave then. Thank you for the kind words on
    the pictures.
