We had another nice sunny day here in New Mexico. The birds, squirrels and chipmunks were gorging out on the seeds that momma put out for them. In fact, today marked the second time one of the "guests" knocked down the larger bird feeder and helped themselves to the bounty within. The humans didn't see who has been doing this so when it was discovered momma righted it back up and this time tied it to a tree - LOL. And speaking of feeding the outside critters, momma discovered it is cheaper to buy a huge bag of whole or cracked corn instead of seeds as it lasts longer. The blue jays really like the corn as does the squirrel. The woodpeckers and smaller birds continue to eat the regular bird seeds so everyone is happy.
The weather forecast is for snow come Saturday and possibly even Sunday but then more sunny skies.
We have been begging momma to let us open some of our presents that secret Santa's sent us so she let us open one. It was filled with lots of really yummy stuff for the humans. There was three kinds of cookies (daddy grabbed the chocolate chip ones and said they were the best cookies he has ever eaten!) and he wouldn't even give me a tiny sample - can you believe that? Momma, who loves peanut butter, tried the peanut butter candies and then couldn't stop. Yup, she really enjoyed them, but at least she shared a tiny piece with me because I too like peanut butter. These candies were super soft and melted in ones mouth. I can't seem to stop thinking about them because they were that good.
Also in the package were three types of breads, fudges even wrapped pressies for Puffy and me (we have to wait until Christmas until we get to open those).
We received another package for a different Secret Santa but momma is making us wait until Christmas to open it. I just love getting pressies.
I would also like to thank everyone who has sent us a Christmas card. This year momma taped them up on the French doors in our bedroom. She choose this place because it's easier to clean the tape residue off glass than walls - BOL. All the pretty cards hanging on the French doors make our bedroom very cheerful. I tried to convince momma to hang so Christmas lights on the same doors but she refused - what a spoil sport.
Hugs and kisses,
My momma has got all of my Christmas cards on a ribbon board in my room - it are real pretty. And we's got so many Christmas lights in dere it are really lit up!
We's got dis one squirrel that keeps trying to steal birdseed. Our bird feeder closes when he gets on it, but he keeps trying.
The ribbon board sounds real pretty Whitley! That was a good idea.
The squirrels are fun to watch especially the greedy gray one who doesn't like to share but they eat a lot thus cost a lot to feed. Momma says we will only feed them during the winter and come spring and summer they will have to find a new source for food because the food court here will be shut down.
Yeah, dat sassy squirrel is annoying, but it are funny how da feeder closes up because of his weight....lol. Momma don't feed da squirrels here cuz they gets in attics and chew wires... they are on their own! She put the feeder up outside da window the cat tree is in front of and calls it their "cat tv".... they really enjoy watchin' all da birdies...
Isn't it fun to feed the wild life and then sit and watch them?????? Those squirrels will tip the bird feeders. Corn for the squirrels they should leave the feeders alone.
Surprises in the mail are the best surprises. Due to activities with hooman kids and grand-kids. I got to open 2 pressies today. Play and take pictures. Gma said this weekend I get open 2 more. Cuz, we 2 groups with a Christmas party. (It's only reason I don't have to wait until 25th.)I'm so happy with a set of twin Bo-Bo's they are brother and sister. Cuz,1 is pink and a girl and 1 is blue and a boy! Isn't that cool????????? A big bag of replacement squeakers so Gma replaces all the ones that go phooey...I have the sharpest little toophers. She usually does this the week she stay with grand-kids while their parents are on cation. Cuz, kids are in school all day. She comes home and my furry babies are brand new! kisses,mazy
