This little guy kept me busy this morning shooing him away from the platform feeder. I gave in and let him use my new feeder for a little while…I had work to do and couldn’t keep at it! Win for the squirrel!
I love receiving signs from the spirit world… I was worried about someone close to me and knew worrying wouldn’t help so I said a prayer. 4 crows landed in the backyard as I finished my prayer.
These four crows have come before, always when I ask for help or guidance. When I see the crows, I am reminded of my ancestors. I know they are watching over me, helping and guiding.
I shared this experience with the person I had been praying for and at the same moment as I mentioned the 4 crows, they saw 4 crows in a tree! Coincidence? I think not.
For the record, I don’t believe in coincidences.
Dukes and Ashes were well entertained by the squirrels today:
Well wasn’t that a snowstorm! It started out a little slow but made up for it this afternoon. Wowsers!
Lots of activity at the feeders. I had a hard time keeping the black squirrels away from the platform feeder. Everytime I chased them away, I’d turn around and they’d come right back! Eventually they found the pile I left them on the veranda, out of the snow, and that kept then occupied the rest of the day, which allowed the birds to use the platform!
Was overjoyed when the Cardinals showed up and stayed for photos!
I went out twice to clear the snow off the feeders and will need to go out again tomorrow. That’s alot of snow! So very grateful to be able to telework on days like today.
So many cute pictures today it’s hard to pick one for photo of the day.
You know how cats have that canny sense where they see something that we don’t…I believe they see our spiritual visitors, like deceased loved ones.
Tonight, Ashes was sitting on my knee. She was quite content then she looked up. This happens a lot. I usually look over my shoulder to see if a spider is descending near my head. This time was different. I watched her face for about five minutes. She was mesmerized, captivated even. Then her left eye winked! She doesn’t wink, nor blink on command. I’ve tried to get her to wink but she ignores me. I’ve tried to get her to blink but again she ignores me. (Her brother, on the other hand, winks and blinks in response to my winks and blinks!)
You can imagine my surprise. Right after the wink, she blinked, a short blink in response or imitation to someone. Two in quick succession.
Then her left ear moved back… Followed by her right ear. Like antennas picking up a signal. It was interesting and fun to watch and I have a pretty good feeling it was my Dad visiting and entertaining my sweet fur baby.
