Silly Squirrel

My kitchen sink area has a window overlooking our back yard. Since we're semi-rural, we have lots of critters around. I like looking out the window while I prep foods (which is why it takes me so long to make a meal). There I see a young squirrel splayed flat-out on his belly, just as relaxed as can be. Then he started to rub his chin and cheeks against the grass, just like a cat does when rolling in catnip. Then he rolls the upper part of his body onto his back, then flips all tummy-down again. Suddenly he springs up and chases another squirrel! Silliest thing I've seen in a while. ~ When I was telling this to Himself earlier tonight, he said he must have seen the same silly squirrel. This time the squirrel had nabbed one of the peanuts Himself tossed out to the squirrels and birds, and Silly was tossing it up into the air and rolling around with it in its paws. Honest, people, I do NOT have a pot farm in my woods! Anyway, here's Silly Squirrel, chillin'.

I love that pic of Silly Squirrel, just chillin'.

-----------------------
I went out to the mailbox this evening and ran back in for my phone to take a pic of this pretty desert sunset, before it disappeared.

That's gorgeous, Cheryl! I'm a big fan of sunsets! (I don't get up early enough to appreciate sunrises.)

Another beauty, Cheryl.

Dawg, the only time I see a sunrise is on my way to bed. Also, a few of the Tequila kind...

Thanks, Dawg and CG.

Even if I got up early enough to see the sunrise (sometimes I am, but not often), I don't get as good a view of it as I do the sunsets. Too many trees in the way.

I'd have to ask the neighbors to move their house, it blocks the sunrise. We see the sunset through the woods, getting harder now that the trees have leafed out.

Random Photo Thread: The Sequel

This is Miss Kim, our late blooming "dwarf" Korean lilac. She's a bit over 8 feet tall, despite being cut back several times. She smells heavenly.
