Animal Update

The squirrel seems to be getting quite comfortable in our backyard. I was watching it eat some stuff off the ground. It ate, ate and ate, I guess till it was ready to bust. Then it slowly walked up to my doorstep and lay down. I guess it was trying to sleep! I walked close to it (inside the house of course, didn't open the door), sat down with my biggo camera next to it. It was awake, but hardly moved! A few weeks ago, it would dart around in a nervous frenzy if it so much as saw me or the hubby inside the house. Guess it has adopted us now :)

I have a few grainy pictures...the camera refused to focus on it. Will upload it in a couple days. It looks so tired! Almost dead!


***********************************

On other updates...the fruits on the neighbor's plum tree have ripened. They are SO sweet! Unbelievable! Brought a bag full to work today.

PS: The neighbor doesn't mind, she's hardly ever at home, and her plums go waste unless we eat them.

We have a patch of cherry tomatoes. We're seeing some fruits now. Can't wait for them to ripen. We had over 12kgs of tomatoes last year! Lets see how much we have this year!

And there is a new post on the blessings blog...for those who missed all my gyaan these last few days ;)

I wanna see that pic.

Reminds me of amonkey we saw on a vacation. Our hotel room had this big french window on the east facade...one early morning my brother wakes me and asks me to tiptoe to the window...and there we see this cute lil fella, sitting snuglled to the corner of the balcony outside and dozing...his eyes would slowly droop...and head tile forward, then his reverie would break and he'd open his eeys only oto go back to the same ....

How we wished we could get the cam froom mom-dad's room, but that wasnt possible without shooing him away....

I still remember the sight...
