We are officially not snowbound today, and late this morning I ventured down the driveway and into the world. I guess it was good to be out and about again, but seriously I couldn’t wait to get back home. Call me crazy but I couldn’t wait to give my dog the new toy I’d bought for him.
Coming back up the driveway was a tad bit dicey, but I put the Element in low and just kept going. I’d driven to the post office and then the local WalMart where I picked up a few supplies including a new bird feeder, some more seed and suet for the birds, a movie for myself, and just because I love him so much, I bought George a toy.
This flying squirrel actually made me laugh out loud in the pet aisle. And at only five bucks, it was quite the steal. But that’s not the best part.
The best part is that it’s a sling shot. A flying slingshot superhero squeaking squirrel! Say that five times really fast.
Folks, it doesn’t get any better than this!
Um, yeah. Maybe I’ve been stuck inside for just a bit too long . . .
Seriously, though. Doesn’t it look like the squirrel is yelling, “Nooooooooo!” in this picture?
Ok. I have been stuck inside for too long. But you’ve gotta make your own fun. And doing a puzzle just wasn’t cutting it, y’know?
In other news, snow storm number two is scheduled to begin around sunset tonight with lots of accumulation predicted. I think we’re ready.
Tonight Ellen Degeneres joins the cast of (what my husband calls) the Singing Survivor Show. I think it will be interesting. And her show today was pretty dern good, too.
Tonight I’m also making one of my husband’s favorite desserts. It’s Dlyn’s Apple Cheese Crisp.
Hope your night is a good one, my friends.
