5 months!

Yesterday marked 5 whole months of being nut free!  I’ve learned a lot through this process, and have absolutely been rewarded for making the choice to stay away from nuts.  There isn’t any doubt that its the right course for me.  Looking back on some of my original postings have helped really reinforce the fact that although I might think there’s something there for me, nuts don’t offer anything beneficial.  Just trouble.  So staying away is the best thing I’ve done.

I really appreciate everyone who has come to follow my adventure so far, and hope that there will be many, many days to come.  Next up, 6 months!!

P. Squirrel out!

Thankful squirrel!

While feeling especially shameful about my recent lack of posting, my spirits were lifted to discover that I had been bestowed an award by GentleStitches!  Normally there are so many awards flowing around the blog-osphere that I’ve been taking a cue from Evil Squirrel and acknowledging but not accepting awards.

This one, however, is different.  There aren’t any rules.  And it espouses some helpful guides for good writing.  It shouldn’t feel like a chore or an obligation, and while I feel thankful for what this blog has done for me, I find myself with less time for it then I used to have.  Which is I suppose a good thing and a bad thing, since I have so much more occupying my time than nuts I am a very busy squirrel these days!

Busy little squirrel...

This looks like a neat book . . .

 

You can see the “Blogging without Obligation” award proudly displayed in my sidebar.  I have a feeling it will be the only honour I will display, at least for the moment.  I suppose that doesn’t negate the possibility of more highly appropriate awards coming my way in the future, but for now I am more than happy to rock the B.W.O. award proudly!

P. Squirrel out!

The forest as it should be . . .

This is what I think of when I picture frolicking woodland creatures.  If only everyone were as nice to squirrels as in this picture:

Squirrel of Peace

Here is some morning wisdom I found.  Trying to focus on not stressing out, and relaxing today.

It’s ok – acorns aren’t nuts. =)

Log squirrel

Just kickin’ back!

Check out this cute picture of a baby grey sitting on a log.  I like how he’s got a good grip on the little nodule sticking up out of the wood, almost leaning back to relax.

Good morning squirrel! (aka Yo Yo Squirrel)

This squirrel would like to say “Good Morning” with his violin cello!  Keep on rockin’ squirrel . . .

Success of the day!

Any day without nuts can be considered a success.  So that’s what I’m going to call today.  A success – one day at a time!

Rocky squirrel

Yeah for me!  …Now where did I leave that moose?

One thing I do wish could improve was this matter of feelings.  I understand I am more in tune with them, instead of simply trying to cover them up.  My problem is that, although I understand that I can’t feel good and happy all the time, I was hoping for at least being happy A LITTLE BIT of the time.  Lately I’ve been fighting off depression – I suppose it could be seasonal?  All I know is I want it to get better.  Sometimes it’s hard being a squirrel.
