    The Farmer's Almanac is predicting a very cold winter. It must be true because the squirrels are gathering NUTS. Three of my friends have disappeared!

    Are you O.K.?

    It has been predicted that we will have a colder and wetter winter this year, which means more snow than we are used to or equipped to deal with... I am going to stock up so I can stay home, warm, well fed and quilting... will buy extra nuts too, can't stand the thought of turning away a hungry squirrel :wink: :D:D:D

    We had our wet, cold, hard winter LAST year. This year will be milder with MUCH less snow.

    OR ELSE!! :evil:

    FACT: If anyone would like to have squirrels I will give you all you want. They are eating our pecans. Squirrels are pest to have around when there pecans for they to steel.

    A cold winter means lots of soup and piling on the quilts at night. It's also the time for hand quilting...the extra keeps your feet warm. The down side to that is the cats burrowing in the folds on the floor.

    We have had our first snow fall and it was not suppose to "stay". Well so far I have about an inch on my sidewalk!!
    I have had two squirrels visit my bird feeders, the first this year.

    I'm ok! I sprayed myself with perfume to keep them off my scent. Now, maybe if I bribe them with peanuts, they will leave me alone. I actually feed the squirrels, along with the birds. It's funny, but when the feeders run out, or there are no peanuts left, the Squirrels stare at the house! It's like telepathy. If I am home all of a sudden I think, I need to put out some more food. Sure enough, there is usually a squirrel on the feeder just staring at the house. I crack up every time!
