End of October
This week has been an unusual week. We have been experiencing record low temps for a couple days this week. Our normal start to the cold season starts on halloween. It is usually the first chilly day of the year. But the cold came about two weeks early this year.
Along with the change in weather, I caught cold earlier this week. I have been harboring up in the house for the last three days, enduring a regimen of chicken soup, OJ, and vitamins trying to get well. But I am still fighting to get well. I guess it is one of those that you just have to wait out and rest as much as possible.
I had a slight scare this afternoon. I went into the back bedroom, and heard a loud, frantic scratching noise. I poked my head out of the room and found that the noise was coming from the kitchen. I had just seen the cat in the living room, so I knew it couldn’t be him.
So I started slowly towards the kitchen, and the sound got louder, but I couldn’t see anything. I got closer, and it sounded like it was in the laundry room. Lo and behold, I peeked around the fridge and saw a squirrel on my windowsill trying to get in the kitchen window. I have never seen a squirrel that anxious to get in a window before. As I walked over, he jumped down and ran away. The window was closed, so I don’t know what he could have been after.
I am not much a fan of squirrels. They chewed up my bird feeder, and we think that one of them had been living in my attic space for a while. If the squirrels at the park get fed by people, then they can become aggressive towards people with food. Anyways, I have lots of them around, and no clue as to what we will find them up to next.
We are planning to work out in the garden this weekend, if I’m feeling better and the weather is agreeable. Hopefully it will be.
