Amusing observance yesterday in the backyard. Son Nicarus has been putting three pecans in the shell out on the railing for the dreaded, dastardly squirrels. His thinking is that it will draw them away from the bounty in the birdfeeders. I watched a squirrel climb deftly up the railing and discover the tasty treat. He immediately hopped off and down into our vegetable garden, hastily digging a hidey-hole, placing the pecan in said hole and carefully covering it back up. Off and away he runs. Barely seconds later, another little bushy-tailed fellow creeps stealthily into the garden, digs up the pecan and absconds to a nearby pine tree to enjoy his ill-gotten booty. Carpe pecan!
New family addiction. The three of us (Happy Hubby(HH), Nicarus and I) have gotten tangled up in the web of the NY Times crossword puzzle. Nicarus reads off the clue and then a lively discussion ensues as to the validity of each other's answers. It is amazing the amount of "junk trivia" that I have stored in my brain. No wonder I can never remember where I put my keys!
On the agenda this weekend. Watching at least one of my favorite Christmas movies. What will it be? One Magic Christmas starring Mary Steenbergen? The Night They Saved Christmas with Art Carney and Jaclyn Smith? Prancer with Sam Elliot and Cloris Leachman? I could watch these movies a thousand times, and still enjoy them like the first viewing. What are your favorites?
Bright Blessings for a wonderful day!
