I’ve found that even squirrels sometimes need to find a quiet place, away from the hurry and scurry, to rest and be alone.

  1. This is such a cute post Rebecca … as a person who has no pets, I have transferred my affection for a pet to the squirrels in the park. I feel like I can hear their brain gears click sometimes. Smart, especially when it comes to food … and speaking of food, that last picture of the little butterball and the quote beneath it – what a great match.

    • Thanks, Linda. I thought that last squirrel went well with the quote. The squirrels around here get plenty to eat between the bird feeders, berry bushes, pine cones and neighboring pecan trees. They are pretty well set.

      • Your weather is more cooperative than ours Rebecca. I stewed and fretted for missing a walk eight days in a row after our 4.2 inch snowstorm on February 4th and now we have a projected 10-inch snowstorm going on right now along with a Polar Vortex event.
        Then more snow Thursday – I hope they are wrong. I finally made it to the Park twice this past weekend, but it may be another 8 days once again before I return.
