Sunday afternoons are usually spent entertaining the children. This weekend that included sledding and playing online games (I’m now puppy sitting a virtual chihuahua during the week for the princess). Usually towards mid afternoon, we start gearing up to take Mike’s children back to their mother’s house.
This weekend was no different. As the afternoon wore on, we found ourselves sitting all sitting in the living room just enjoying each others’ company. I happened to glance out the front door and then looked harder. There was a squirrel on my front porch rail. That’s not unusual in itself, because I have several squirrels that live in my trees. What was unusual was what he had in his mouth.
I pointed it out to the children “Hey, what does that squirrel have in his mouth? Is that a pancake?” It was huge, compared to the squirrel. I reached for my camera. By the time I got to the front door, he had scurried up the tree, out of my sight.
I sat back down at my desk and we went back to deciding how to spend the rest of our time together. Suddenly Derrick called out “There he is again.” This time, the squirrel had half of a donut.
We watched as he scurried up the tree with the donut that was almost as big as he was. I guess he was stocking up for the cold as well.
We should all be so resourceful!
