Well my friends and family think I have started a new threat to the animal kingdom... Obesity in Squirrels.... YUP... they think that I'm causing their lives to be shortened posing a real threat to our back yard trees. Ok.. I'll admit.. I LOVE watching what was ONE squirrel eat the corn on the cobs I bought for them... then when the deck was built.. I bought a BETTER feeder... How strange... before I knew it .. the ONE squirrel has turned into about FIVE and they all weigh at least 20lbs each... ok.. well maybe not that much.. but I think they might seriously outweigh my cat!!! The picture below was taken about two months ago...so maybe add 5lbs ... lol lol
Well... I wanted to get into the whole nature thing.. so I decided that I would make popcorn, cranberry and cereal garland for a fake tree on the back deck!! The Garland took me about a week to make but it came out really cute.. and then to add more.. I made pinecone bird feeders. Do you remember making those as a kid... oh it was fun and STICKY!!! but I have to tell you a secret... I put the peanut butter BACK into the cupboard.. wasn't thinking.. and then next day.. the teens came home for lunch.... ummmm guess what they had... PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY SANDWICHES... ah oh.... GASP!!! What they don't know won't hurt them.. right.. it's all natural????? Ü
Ok... now for something cool.. here is what I got in my package from DONNA!!! I loved EVERYTHING in there!!! I even got homemade goodies in there that didn't last long around here!!!
Oh and see the "grubby" candle behind there.. I got that from PUGPOSSE .. I have YET to burn it.. it smells soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good unburned... ( I'll show a close up tomorrow)
Earlier this week I had a dear friend come over... she had her doggie in the truck.. I said... "oh girl get him out of there and bring him in".. and she did.. he's very very active.. but so handsomely cute.. and my Nellie girl loved him... I think she like the part where MAX had to wear the Santa Suit and NOT her!!!!
