I got to the studio this morning, and this is what greeted me. Sunshine, and lots of it.
It was cold, tis true. But I can take it, if it is sunny.
What a beautiful day.
We did get a hard frost. So all those allergy sufferers out there can take a deep breath. The ragweed is history for another year.
I got busy weaving, but my DH showed up, intent on helping me wash windows. I have been saying that I was going to have to do it myself, and he offered his services. The storms on the outside have to come off, and both windows have to be washed. It isn't hard, just very time consuming. And not something I can do alone.
Yes, ladies, he cooks, and he does windows, too. What a guy!!
Guess I will keep him.
While we were out there, I was telling him that the house needed painting, again. And I was perusing the siding, checking out the places where the paint was peeling.
And I noticed this.
Yup, he said, looks like squirrels have chewed their way into the soffit.
Then I screamed again.
There he is!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOOK!!!!! In the window!!!!!!!
There he was, indeed. Sunning himself in the eyebrow window up in the peak of the house.
I ran and got my zoom lens. I couldn't believe my eyes. I swore, I stomped, I shook my fist at him. I don't want you in my attic.
Why is it whevever I get a little money ahead, something.....or someone....comes along with another plan for it.
And as I zoomed in, snapping away, I let out one more whoop.
And more profanity.
No, this is not a joke. Those are not two little squirrel statues up in the attic, sunning themselves in my eyebrow window.
Those are two interlopers, who are going to make me spend money, to get them out of my house, and to block up the places they are getting in.
No, they are NOT cute. NO.NO.NO.
"Do you hear something?"
"I thought I heard people."
"Isn't that sun divine?"
"Hey, where'd ya' put the sunflower seeds we stole from the bird feeder?? Huh? Huh?"
"They're right there. You're sitting on them. Quit botherin' me. I'm getting some sun."
