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.

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.

Hannah Hickory and ACorn

It was time for Hannah Hickory to decorate for the Fall season.
I went over to see if she needed any help.
She was happy to have me over as she filled her window box with apples.
She needed me more to talk with than to actually help with the decorating.
We did have a good visit.
Just before I left she told me to hop up on the big pumpkin for a picture.
I hope to visit her more often.

Autumn Colors

I stepped outside this morning to enjoy the beautiful Autumn colors.
All the golds and greens stood out so vivid in the sun.
The sun was so bright it was hard to capture the colors just right.
The birds are singing. Squirrels are scampering across the yard searching for food. No signs of deer yet.
Amazing morning!
It was so nice out I decided to have my breakfast on the deck.
What could be better than breakfast and tea on such a wonderful morning in the sunshine.

Jack O Lantern at Night

We bought a candle, placed it in the pumpkin and lite it.
His crooked grin is funny.
I walked closer for a good look at his face.
I then blew out the candle.
I was going in the house to get warm.
Started to walk away.
When suddenly a witch popped up in front of me.
She wasn’t scary she was a friendly witch.
She insisted on seeing the pumpkin lite.
Together we walked back over to light it.
The witch said once a pumpkin is carved it becomes a Jack O Lantern.
She said this Jack O Lantern is perfect for Halloween.

Pumpkin Carving

I went with my person as she carved a pumpkin.
The top is cut off and the inside is removed.
I think I should stay up here on top.
The inside is kind of slimy.
Look at all those seeds.
I could eat for a year if I take them home.
I’m not going to take them.
To slimy for me.
My person said she is carving an easy pumpkin this year.
This one looks pretty easy.
Ta da !
The pumpkin is carved.
Looks good to me.
My person said we will light it tomorrow.
We need to get a candle.
We will show you what it looks like at night but not right now.

Sightseeing Outing

Today I was up early with my people.
We headed out as the sun was rising.
It’s very foggy.
Pretty neat looking !
Maybe a little scary !
We drove through many areas with old towns.
This town had most of its downtown area still in business.
Nice buildings!
I sat on the biggest rocking chair I have ever seen.
It’s big isn’t it?
I climbed up on this fence.
Behind me was a huge cow.
After my day of sightseeing I headed home and took a nap.
