Scarf Project 2019

I helped with the scarf project again this year.
If you look really hard you can see me sitting among some of them.
Many scarves lined the fence for passerby’s to take.
All colors and sizes.
Some had hats . Some had mittens
All scarves to keep many necks warm this Winter.
This one was like being cuddled by a teddy bear.
This hat almost looks like the one I have on.
Another warm hat. I may need one like this for myself.
I better ask my person about knitting one for me.
Bright colored scarves to make one feel warm on cold days.
It was a cold day today but I had fun.
I’m hoping my person makes me a scarf. I don’t have one.

Early morning outside

I was up just before dawn this morning.
I went outside so I could see all these webs with the early morning dew on them.
It was cold but the sight was beautiful.
I tried standing on the branches .
I was a little to heavy and kept falling through the bushes.
Their were so many webs it looked like someone had decorated .
All the bushes looked pretty.
I wonder how many worked the night before to place these webs on every bush.

First snow day

Last night on Donahey maybe a half inch of snow fell.
It is rather cold. With the snow and the cold the Hitty’s are dressed well.
As Gran tells the girls a half inch of snow is not much.
They head off to get their sleds.
The girls are going to get a real surprise when they realize sledding is out.
Dressed for the cold in their long Winter capes they will be warm.
I wonder how long they stay out in the cold.

Friends help

ACorn’s friend Peter hitched the horse up to his cart.
He and friend Gator had a plan to help Acorn.
The Winter supply of nuts ACorn had gathered would take a lot of cracking with his teeth.
Peter and Gator planned to make the cracking of nuts easier.
They would bring home the perfect nut cracker.
The nut cracker was hooked to Peter’s cart.
Off to ACorn’s house they headed.
Acorn’s gives the nut cracker a try.
It works.
That was one good acorn. Now it will be so much easier for me
to eat over the Winter.

My Winter food supply

I stood out on the deck today.
Looking at the trees that are almost bare of leaves.

I started to worry about not having enough food
for myself for Winter.
I scurried across the yard to the tree that still had a few leaves.
Sure enough I found some berries on it.
I stuffed my cheeks and hurried home to stash them.
I found more acorns that I carried home.
The acorns were so big I could only stuff one at a time in my cheeks.
Took many trips across the yard to get these guys home.
I brought the acorn caps home to make some dishes for my kitchen.
After all that running around It felt wonderful to relax in a branch.

Winter Season Birdseed

I needed a hearty breakfast today.
I was going to be working hard.
What could be better than Kodiak flapjacks.
The box was right.
Whole grains do taste better.
After my hearty breakfast I headed off with my people.
We had to go pick up our order of birdseed.
We hope we ordered enough to last the Winter.
Fifteen 25 pound bags of seeds.
Seeds for birds and I’m sure some of my outdoor relatives.
The stack is growing.
The last bag has been loaded.

We then added two boxes of suet.
Now that we are back home who is going to unload this?????
I’m so tired I can’t do it right now.
Maybe it can be unpacked later.

Hitty Malibus arrival

When Hitty Malibu arrived Tasha was ready to help her out of the box.
Tasha will turn Malibu over to Aunt Sarah.
Aunt Sarah is going to introduce Malibu to the girls in the house.
The girls embrace Malibu’s arrival with open arms.
We can see Malibu will fit right in with the rest of the girls.
I’m sure many fun times will be had by all.
