Good morning everyone! I hope everyone’s day is off to a great start! Why not grab a cup of coffee and sit down with us for a while? This milder weather sure is a nice change from what we have had. Even the frosty windows are not quite so frosty now, Muffin can actually see out one window now. The main window still has a ways to go yet, but hopefully the frost will be gone soon. That will make her very happy at night.
Garnet, the squirrel, was here quite a bit yesterday but I never saw Jasper around. I’m sure Garnet enjoyed that however, he got the peanuts all to himself, except for the ones the blue jays flew off with in the morning. I never saw any blue jays in the afternoon which is kind of odd. But I may have missed them. It is very strange that they are not around as much this winter as usual. But maybe they found a feeder closer to where they live. I think only Baxter and Betty come around here now.
So I hope the shrike does not decide to come around. The smaller birds would be in trouble without the blue jays here to protect them. Muffin was nice enough to let me sleep in late this morning, until 5:30. Not counting her midnight snack time of course. And I didn’t even stumble into anything this time, much. And we had another fantastic playtime this morning too! That was after I got up this morning, not when she had her midnight snack.
Although I think she wanted me to stay up then too. But then I would have to sleep during the day and that just does not work well for me. I find it very difficult sleeping during the day. Not because of the daylight, but because it is daytime. My brain cannot settle down during the day so I can sleep. I have tried many times without success. Though I have managed to sleep when I don’t sleep at night. But I much prefer to sleep at night. There is just something about sleeping at night that is so… relaxing. Thank you for reading today and enjoying a cup of coffee with Muffin and I. Have a wonderful day and God bless!
