No matter the season, grey squirrels are part and parcel
of our garden still with several large oak and hickory trees.
The acorns and hickory nuts are collected, persistently gnawed,
and often stashed and stored around the garden for later meals.
These critters have voracious appetites.
Perhaps they are descendants of the original farm inhabitants - this land
was once farmland - who decided to coexist with the humans who
built on their territory back in the 1960's.
This week I made a quick stop at JoAnn's Fabrics/Crafts for yarn and
found this! I'd actually seen it a couple of weeks back when there - with
a $24.99 price tag - and decided to pass.
This week fall merchandise was on sale, 70% OFF which was huge,
and this wall hanging was still there. . . . . . waiting for me!
At just $7.50 I couldn't not buy. It's really nice with a real wood frame
and leather hanger.
Today is cloudy and quite cool with some rain expected later this
evening and during the night.
This evening we may light the fire for the first time - all is set
with logs on the hearth ready to burn.
The clocks go back tonight and tomorrow morning may be a day
to sleep in. . . . it will be chilly and overcast all day.
