A little bit of nothin' and a squirrel

I'm having an out-of-body experience when it comes to blogging lately. Every day I come in and check on you all, and everyday I don't update myself.

The last three weeks I've been in survivor mode to make it to this Saturday - when my holidays start. I love my job, but I'm one tired puppy/kitten/reptile/ ... (insert favourite cuddly being).

So even though I've been 'here', I really haven't been here, but my mind is still constantly thinking of new entries that will never get written. Bad Blogger!

However .... I did remember to bring you a picture of one of the squirrels that live in the tree beside our house.



He has no tail, and if you look closely - you'll notice that the back leg that's facing you - has no foot. That is no trick of photography. He in fact is missing his rear foot. But BOY!!! Can that rodent hustle up (and down) a tree at a moments notice. He's actually very cute. I must make a confession - I leave bird food out for them. That's why he's stopped where he is in the photo. There is a little pile left out, just for him.

Cheers!

I go through times too when I can't think of anything to write. Or I have something to write, but it seems boring to me once I'm finished, so I delete it. Then I begin to pressure myself. Silly me. I love that you leave bird food for the squirrels. The past two entries have made me smile. Thanks for sharing!

What is a squirrel without his bushy tail? I love to feed the squirrels & birds. We used to throw peanuts in shell for them & the Stellars Jay, but I got lazy.
