I haven’t been home much over the past few weeks. Busy Busy Busy. By the time I get home in the evening, all I want is a glass of wine. (or 2 or 3 or 4)
But I have been taking snaps. With my iPhone.
And finally some damn squirrels pics. They suddenly set off the squirrel alarm. (If you live with squirrels, you know what that is) They were all pretending to be statues while the alarm sounded. Usually it means there is an owl, hawk, or cat in the yard. I couldn’t spot anything.
Did find two huge squirrel nests in the trees.
Their hi pitched squeals went on for awhile. Then I realized that the news was on and they had just heard about Putin’s new nuclear weapons and saw the rendering on TV of the bombs dropping on Tampa Bay. So this was the new squirrel NUCLEAR alarm drill. No owls, cats, or hawks. Just practicing.
Luminary Art Walk tonight. Shrimpapalooza on the 24th. Old Homosassa Community Day on April 7th.
We’ve had some great weather over the past week. Even took the boat out a couple times.
Had a baby otter on the dock the other day. Otters “peep” to keep in contact with each other. This one was peeping away. Couldn’t find mama. After a couple of minutes, Mama and another baby otter showed up. I didn’t get close enough to get really good photos. I figured Mama just might be ferocious with two babies in tow.
They hung out for awhile and then headed down the kayak ramp.
So cute. But they can be mean and destructive. I’ve heard of them completely destroying seats on boats if they get on. Terry checked out the kayaks just in case they were living in there and all was okay!
A little bit of news here, I’m blogging for NatureCoaster.com now. On Tuesdays I will be putting up news of Old Homosassa on that website. Kind of a Friday Meanderings on Tuesday!
Okay, I’ve got a house full of company and a kitchen full of dirty dishes so I gotta go!
