The usual suspects, grey squirrels, are rampant in the garden again.
Perhaps the mild daytime weather is bringing them out of their nests in the
back garden treetops.
They search on the grass for acorns - some they probably buried themselves
in autumn - and scuffle around under the bird feeders for dropped seed.
We have stopped throwing out bits of bread and such because we feel if
unwanted nighttime visitors, opossums, raccoons, foxes, deer, and the
neighborhood coyote stop by, we shouldn't encourage them to return.
They are quite cute and, despite their naughty pranks at the feeders,
we would miss them if they stopped their visits to our garden.
Trees are totally devoid of leaves now other than a glimpse of a green pine here and there.
Blue skies, even with a few puffy clouds tossed in, bring smiles and thanks in
January. . . . . . . . . which can be such a dreary month.
Update on the keyboard problems on my 2018 MacBook Air.
The Apple Genius Bar cleaned under the laptop's keys which appears
to have helped, and I brought it home the same day.
They tested and completed the work whilst I waited - a total of about 20 minutes.
If it continues I can return and they will go ahead and replace with another
keyboard which could take up to three days. Because this is a known problem
due to the 'butterfly' style keyboard installed on all MacBooks since 2015,
Apple does not charge anything for the cleaning or replacement if necessary.
Life is much better when the computer works!
