We had a very quiet weekend with some small jobs around the house getting done. I looked outside yesterday morning and saw this squirrel at one of the feeders. It took me a few seconds to realize he doesn''t have any ears! From what I could see he is perfectly fine otherwise, just no outer ears.
Finally the sun came out this morning and it is very mild. We hardly have any snow left which makes for great walking. I checked my gardens and noticed many of the perennials are continuing to poke up through the soil. Hopefully we get some snow soon to cover them up again.
We continue to de-clutter and get rid of a few things. My Mum some years ago passed along a number of antique oil lamps to us. We decided to pare down to just the lamps we really loved. Half went to our local Bibles For Missions Thrift Store and half we took to my favourite antique store to see if the owner would like them. We ended up trading two for this quilt. I originally had the "Sunbonnet Girls" quilt on this bed but since we painted and changed the colour it didn't match anymore. I don't know if this quilt pattern has a name or not. I think it matches much better then the other one.
Here is a photo from a few days ago taken during the wind and snow storm we had. I am always so surprised the birds don't blow off the branches!
My Mum is still in the hospital. She is having a very hard time breathing so now no date has been given when she will be released. Again thank you for all your good wishes.
I hope you have a wonderful week!
