I'd much rather read than write so it's not much of a blog...

Cheap Entertainment on Two Acres

Sunday night I dozed off in front of the fire to be awakened shortly after midnight by a flying squirrel doing laps around the downstairs. I went up to bed but slept with one ear/eye open so to speak.

Last night as we were about to eat dinner the little critter reappeared, still looking for a way out. Actually it was more fun than we'd had in awhile and after a few rounds we were finally able to shoo it out the front door. They are cute but I hope they stay in the attic until spring when we can get someone up on the roof to work on the chimneys.

Too Much Too Soon

We are buried in lake effect snow that continues unabated. It's beautiful but it's also another thing that adds to my growing sense of unease.
