We all have Cabin Fever. Last week we had two beautiful sunny days. The snow melted completely and we had these two lovely girls come to visit. They like to slurp up any cracked corn left under the bird feeder.
Slurp! Since last week we have had rain, freezing rain, slush and snow, snow, snow. I do love a season that stays around so long that I can get thoroughly sick of it. Then I am SO happy to greet the next season.
So, Orion’s cabin fever has taken the form of chewing up things. My farmyard boots were gnawed into non-existence last week. He ripped my Terry Pratchett book “Men at Arms” into several hunks, which I managed to hold together so I could finish rereading it for the fifth time before I threw it away.
And here is what he just did to the comforter which adorns the Dog Bed by the front window.
Most of the fluff that was internal is now outside the comforter. And that white stuff out the window…yes, that is what is plaguing us. It’s blowing. It’s freezing and it’s snowing non-stop. Oh how I love griping about the end of this season. Next week will bring some spring, I imagine! 🙂
Oh, yes. Ken left me a note that Orion and Sheldon killed a squirrel today at lunch time. Darn it! I put birdfood and peanuts out in front so the squirrels won’t go in back. Rawr.
