When I get home from the gym each day, I fill the birdfeeders and put out peanuts for the squirrels, nuthatches and tufted titmice. I have to put them in separate piles so there are no arguments between our three types of squirrels (five squirrels chasing each other around the pine trees is a VERY noisy business!). Within minutes of putting down the peanuts, this is what I saw from the upstairs window:
All three squirrels with their tails up, protecting them from the drizzle, and all three facing the woods like a lineup of guilty critters. I consider the cardinal on the feeder, getting his share of the peanuts, as a holiday bonus!
I'll be hosting a sale in my Etsy yarn shop for the Thanksgiving weekend. Starting at the stroke of midnight on Friday, Nov. 25 through midnight, Sunday, Nov. 28, all yarns will be 20% off--use the code Wolf 11 when you check out and the price will automatically be reduced by 20%. Pick up a skein or two to make holiday gifts for loved ones, or wrap up a few skeins as a gift for your favorite craftsperson. Patterns and gift certificates are not included in this sale.
A few recent additions to tempt you.....
