Lazy day...

On Sunday afternoon as I was out enjoying the beautiful weather and reading on my deck I noticed this squirrel sitting in the tree above me. It caught my attention because it was sitting still, as in not moving. This is very abnormal from any squirrels I have witnessed before. They are usually more like Hammy, the crazy hyper squirrel in the movie "Over the Hedge." (Very cute movie by the way - I like the cookie!) Anyway, this squirrel above me appeared to be taking a nap right there on the tree limb. He stayed in that exact spot and position for at least 2 hours that I know of, then I left for a little while and he was gone by the time I got back. Maybe you had to be there but it was just a funny sight for me to see. I know my backyard has always been calming and relaxing for me, well apparently the animals are feeling the same way now too! :)

Sunset heaven...



The harvest time sunsets the last few nights here in North Dakota have been truly beautiful. I just can't capture on camera the full glory of what my eyes see but I at least tried. On Thursday night the sun was completely red and so gorgeous as it was setting but I didn't have my camera with me, I was quite mad at myself!
