Daily Pics #243.

Good morning to everyone! It is a nice, sunny morning once again and there is a south wind blowing lightly which means warm weather to return today! It’s going all the way up to 73F (23C) today, but tomorrow’s high temp for the day will be a bit cooler. Jasper and the chipmunks are having fun again this morning. Poor Jasper. He has a slight problem. He’s bigger than the chipmunks. Specifically, his back end is quite a bit bigger. So the chipmunks run in and out of all the milk crates quite easily while being chased. Jasper has problems, he doesn’t fit quite so easily. The morning he kind of got stuck on one and dragged it a bit before he broke free. The chipmunk was gone by that time. Naturally.

Actually he was just hiding behind a flower pot until Jasper left. Next time Jasper came back there was 3 chipmunks so the chase was on! But one chipmunk hid behind a flower pot and while Jasper was trying to chase the other 2, he came out, got his peanuts and left. This happened twice. Those chipmunks are starting to cooperate. Or some are just taking advantage of a good situation. While Jasper was chasing a chipmunk he flew off the deck again and one of the blue jays came down, went in the peanut box, grabbed a peanut and flew off just as Jasper came back. That got Jasper so the chase was on, way up the tree. Meanwhile the chipmunks were taking the remainder of the peanuts. Nothing left when Jasper came back so I put some more out. A chipmunk heard that and came up on the deck right away.

Poor Jasper. Instead of taking a peanut he decided to chase the chipmunk. Another chipmunk came, got his peanuts and left, with Jasper right behind him. So another chipmunk came, got his peanuts and left. With Jasper right behind him. The chipmunk made a sharp turn behind a flower pot. So did Jasper, except he turned to soon and went head first into the flower pot. He sat there, shook his head a bit, then came back, got his peanut and left. However, he did get about half of the next batch of peanuts, so he did okay. He may not agree. I hope you enjoy today’s 2 different bright flowers, have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  1. Here , in Lebanon , the temperature has risen up to 34 C due to a hot breeze of air coming from the Arabian Peninsula deserts …
    I wish I would live in a place like where you live at least in summer because summers are cooler there …

    • Nice that you remembered that. Had a good day yesterday, but today has been a rough day. Hard to even move around. I read your post but wasn’t really sure what advice I could give for that. Sorry. I know for my blog that last year I had a greater variety in posts and had a large readership. This year due to health I have had to slow down and stay more with a single theme and I have lost about 60% of my readers. Sometimes more variety can be a good thing. But it depends on the subject too and whether or not there is a lot of competition in that area. So not much help there. Do you know if muscle pain can be Covid related. I have had the problem since having the Covid virus, and so many other things that I hate to even mention them all to my doctor. This is all just so weird, it has been quite an experience and so many people I talk to don’t even believe it’s possible to have all these symptoms. Oh well, an interesting year. I hope you have a great week!๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜บ๐ŸŒž

      • Hi Steve, no worries about not leaving in my blog post. You sharing your experience about blogging and how you lost 60% of your readership by focusing on one topic is another perspective that I’m glad you mentioned it. This is something i need to ponder on.

        About the muscle pain – YES YES YES it is truly covid. Covid can have the same symptoms of flu. Let me tell you some weird symptoms covid can do to a patient – diarrhea, eye pain, bad headache, loss of taste and smell. Don’t worry just shoot me a question if you have anything about covid. I’ve been exposed to covid for months already and I am doing everything not to get it because my old parents live with me. You take care my friend. I don’t know if you have faith or religion, but I hope you don’t mind me praying for your healing. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I keep getting headaches a lot too, something I just don’t normally get, but now I do since getting Covid. Interesting, sort of. Everything just kind of goes blank sometimes too, right while I’m doing something. And symptoms can sometimes change from one day to the next which is also kind of weird. I really wouldn’t want anyone to get this. We were told that it lasts maybe a couple weeks and you’re better, no one mentioned that it could last for months.
        Yes, I’m a Christian and do believe in prayer, thank you so much for praying for me, I truly appreciate it! Take care, stay safe!๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜บ

      • Some people get their symptoms resolved in weeks while others in months. I see some young people like in their 30s they get better quick then after a week or two they develop blood clot in their lungs or legs. You take care too. ๐Ÿ™‚

        I will take a look at that, even though it’s too late for me.
        Maybe you should do one for people like me, some possible long term symptoms, what to expect, how best to deal with it. Have a wonderful day!๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜บ

    • Yep, they are having fun with Jasper! Maybe Jasper will learn after awhile, or maybe not. Jasper will be on his own soon anyway, the chipmunks will only be around for another month anyway.๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿฟ
