I watched a squirrel play with his nuts.

As I sat outside I noticed a squirrel in the flower bed I had just cleared for winter.  I watched the whole time as he dug a hole, threw his nut in, scraped dirt into the hole and pat it down.  More dirt.  Pat it down.  Dry leaves, Pat.  You know the drill.  When he was done.......he went to the part of the garden that had been cleared and he immediately digs up another one and eats it.  What's the deal?  Do they have to ferment or something?
And the Hummingbirds.  They still go to the feeders but now they are also going for the red geraniums, red hibiscus and anything red.  Weirdos.

I am packed for the trip and as soon as this Xanax kicks in.....I will be doing good.  BTW, Xanax does not send me to La-La land.  DAMN!  It just takes the edge off.  Slows my heart rate or so it feels.  It gathers all those extra thoughts in my brain, puts them in a burlap sack and tucks them away for awhile.

Again Hunter was wondering why he gets so tired now.  He feels like he could take a nap every day.  I took this opportunity-for the 2nd time-to tell him, "You know how you feel?  That's how I feel ALL the time and have for as long as I can remember.."  I think he finally understood.  He said he couldn't deal with feeling like that for such a long time.

I hope everything fits in my vehicle.  Hunter has always said I bring too much and I have pared down quite a bit.  He, on the other hand, has increased the amount of stuff he brings.  Like a suitcase for his clothes and a couple large totes with......well, I don't know what.
I am still not sure what kind of place we are staying in although I know it's new because Hunter was up there a year or two ago helping them wire the place.  I don't know it there's a fridge or microwave.  I do know we have a half-bath but everyone uses the same shower.  Not good news for this nudie girl.   I guess I could "shower"at the sink.  Or if the other people are attractive........maybe a join communal shower party.  Yee-Haw!

We are going to grab a bite, go to the village meeting about the re-zoning then pack up the car so that all we have to do in the morning is dress and grab the remnants of our stuff and a big thermos of coffee for me.  Then off we go.  At 6 AM!  Is that even a real hour?  He will be in a hurry to get there but he says we can meander and take our time on the way home.  Do you suppose it is because we will be stopping at his lover friend Brian's farm?  I have an appt, Tuesday.  We are coming home Monday.  Yes, we will be taking Maggie. 
I will bring my camera and hope to get some good pictures.  'Course I don't know how to get them from the camera to the computer but I am sure if I read the instructions I can figure it out.

Will miss you all.  Peace and have a good weekend.  I will try to do the same and if all else fails....I know there will be plenty of alcohol.

Enjoy your trip and take a lot of pictures, I have a feeling getting them off your camera and onto the computer will be easy enough to figure out.

when I saw the title, I thought you were calling me a squirrel!

I hope you have a good trip. Are you CERTAIN the squirrel was a male? Such distinctions are very important to squirrels as they are very sensitive about gender.

I hope you and the rest of your family have a good trip and possibly bond. You deserve a great trip... and a communal shower? Yee-haw, indeed. but I would have difficulty showing my stuff to strangers. Or are they strangers? No matter.

I'll be going on a trip pretty soon. Maybe we could share pictures soon. I wish I could tell you where we're going. You might be envious.

Take care, Middle Child. P.S. I watched a squirrel play with is nuts once, too. It wasn't as engaging as you would think during his nut playing session. :)
