Greetings fellow squirrels and squirrel lovers! It is I, Pensive Squirrel, with announcements about the latest goings on with me and this blog. I’ve been exceptionally busy with other pursuits lately, leaving me very little time to post things. And when I do get any free time, I’m usually pretty wiped out.
Today’s squirrel of the day is an allusion to a wonderful gift I recently received. But first, the squirrel – a black squirrel is actually a member of the grey squirrel family, but just has unusually high amount of pigment, making it essentially black. Apparently it is what is called a “melanistic subgroup.” They are pretty common in areas of Canada, from what I understand.
Having seen 120 days of being nut free come and go, it’s an interesting place to be in. Some may have noticed that the “nut-free counter” has been reset and is now counting it’s way to 5 months, where upon it will display a secret message I have chosen to commemorate the event. Each day is a little easier, yet the spectre of a tasty nut is always looming. Fortunately, I have a new squirrel guardian to help me out!
I haven’t had a chance to take my own pictures of my new friend yet, but here is a link to get a little peek. I have been chosen as the recipient of the “Glovely Squirrel”! Nothing could make me happier! I received him a few days ago and have been waiting for a proper write up . . . Well I couldn’t wait any longer! I’ll have to post more pictures of the Glovely Squirrel in America. A big thank you to GentleStitches for my wonderful new companion!
