I woke up today and had coffee with my sweet Mr. Fix-It in my pretty new kitchen. I love looking out all the windows at the woods behind my house. I love sitting at my island, drink my morning coffee and watching the birds and squirrels. Most people don't want squirrels around because they get in their bird feeders. The squirrels behind my house don't mess with my bird feeders now. Mr. Fix-It built me some bird feeder poles out of skinny metal rods that stick in the ground.
He thought the poles would be squirrel proof because they were so skinny. They weren't. So he fixed them.
This is such a "redneck" fix. He took grease and rubbed it all over the poles from top to bottom. Mr. Fix-It, my Mom and Dad sat back and watched. The squirrels would jump and slide straight to the bottom of the pole.
|Jumping from chair to tree.|
Then the squirrel would give up and walk off. As the squirrel walked off the leaves and pine needles stuck to his little feet. He would shake them off so it looked like he was doing a little dance.
"You put your right foot in,
You take your right foot out.
You put your right foot in
And you shake it all about..."
So I have been feeding the squirrels out of an old chair in the back yard. I like watching them. Today I had 3 of them and they were all fighting over who was getting in the chair.
These are two of the three squirrels that I watched off and on today.
Even the little birds were getting into the picture. (bottom rung of chair)
I hope you took time out today to enjoy a few moments of your day.
