I don’t need anything from you, maybe.

Am I cute 3

My given name’s Sophia,

And I wouldn’t wanna be ‘ya

Cause I’m happy as a clam

Just being who I am.

I’ve got a cozy little burrow

And a friend who’s NOT a squirrel.

So there’s nothing that I need

Well…perhaps some fruit and seed

And on reflection I say, “know what?”

I would accept a donut.

 

 

 

 

MOM, MOM, HEY MOM!

A LONNNNGGG TIME AGO, MY MOTHER GAVE ME THIS BEAUTIFUL BOWL AS A WEDDING SHOWER GIFT. ON SPECIAL OCCASIONS I USE IT TO HOLD, OH…GIGANTIC SALADS OR BAGS AND BAGS OF CHIPS…IT’S THAT BIG!

WELL, LEAVING IT OUT INSTEAD OF STORING IT AWAY AFTER IT’S LAST USE WAS PERHAPS NOT MY BEST IDEA. 

THANKS FOR THE BOWL MOM…WE SURE HAVE GOTTEN A LOT OF FUN OUT IT!

PROJECT SUNSHINE…

Use this  are we adorable or what (1 of 1)

TWO DAYS OF SUNSHINETWO WEEKS OF RAIN, OUR WEATHER JUST KEEPS ON CYCLING THIS WAY.  I THINK THAT WE ARE ALL GOING TO DEVELOP THE “SAD” CONDITION. 

PEOPLE USUALLY GET THIS CONDITION IN THE WINTER, DUE TO LACK OF SUN. THEY GET DEPRESSED…THEY EAT TOO MUCH CHOCOLATETHEY CURSE THE WEATHER REPORTERS. (IT’S REALLY NOT THEIR FAULT, BUT WE NEED TO BLAME SOMEBODY!)

TO PREVENT BECOMING INFECTED WITH THIS CONDITION ,I’M GOING TO START LOOKING AT THIS IMAGE EVERY SO OFTEN BECAUSE IT’S YELLOW AND CHEERY AND BECAUSE THE CHICKS ARE JUST SO DARN CUTE!

I NEED TO GET THIS OUT OF MY SYSTEM!

THERE!        CLOUDS, CLOUDS, CLOUDS…I WAS A LITTLE OBSESSED WITH THEM IN FLORIDA.

TAKING THESE ONLY MADE ME WANT THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHOOT MORE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE…THAT’S NOT GOING TO BE POSSIBLE FOR AWHILE.

THAT’S NOT TO SAY THAT I’M LETTING MY GUARD DOWN…ANY INTERESTING CLOUDS THAT ROLL OVER THE WOODS BETTER MAKE SURE THAT THEY’RE CAMERA READY. I’LL BE STALKING THEM, KIND OF LIKE A PAPARAZZI, ONLY I’M A CLOUD-ARAZZI.

I’M NOT SURE HOW ALL OF YOU ARE GOING TOP FEEL ABOUT THIS, BUT I’M GOING TO TRY TO MIX IN MORE OF MY WOODLAND FRIENDS. THEY’RE FEELING A LITTLE NEGLECTED.

PREPARE YOURSELVES…I’VE SEEN A SQUIRREL!!

SHE SMELLS ME! IS THAT A GOOD THING?

REMEMBER THE MAMA RACCOON WHO MOVED HER BABIES BACK AND FORTH, BACK AND FORTH?

THIS IS THE VERY SAME GAL…

IT’S NOT REAL COMMON FOR A RACCOON TO BE OUT AND ABOUT IN THE DAYTIME, BUT WHEN YOU HAVE LOTS OF LITTLE MOUTHS TO FEED, YOU DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO.

FOR THE LONGEST TIME, MAMA RACCOON DIDN’T SEEM TO KNOW THAT I WAS SITTING A MERE TEN FEET AWAY FROM HER. AFTER A BIT, SHE BECAME SUSPICIOUS THAT ALL WAS NOT RIGHT WITH THE WOODS.

SHE WOULD LIFT HER HEAD AND SMELL MY SCENT, MOVING VERY SLOWLY ALONG THE EDGE OF THE WOODSSHE WAS BEING EXTREMELY CAUTIOUS.

IN THE SECOND IMAGE YOU HAVE THE MOMENT WHEN SHE REALIZED THAT SHE WAS NOT ALONE. I WONDER HOW GOOD THEIR EYESIGHT ACTUALLY IS IN THE DAYTIME, CONSIDERING THAT THEY ARE A NOCTURNAL ANIMAL.

I WAS VERY SURPRISED WHEN SHE DIDN’T SCAMPER BACK TO HER LITTLE HOME UNDER THE DECK, BUT INSTEAD PROCEEDED TO MOVE TOWARD THE BIRDSEED AND CORN. 

I DIDN’T MOVE ANYWHERE  I HAVE NO DESIRE TO SEEM LIKE A THREAT TO A MAMA RACCOON. THAT WOULDN’T BE IN ANYBODY’S BEST INTEREST!  BESIDES, I HAVE GROWN QUITE FOND OF HAVING MY SKIN ATTACHED TO MY BODY.
