Welcome to the Nut Bar

Last weekend, while I was quilting, Mom and Dad headed north to see my brother and family. They haven’t been down since before Christmas because of COVID.

In addition to quilting, I kept watch over the puppers. Checvy does not like it when his people leave and he mostly kept vigil at the window.

Jem, on the other hand, was much more relaxed about the whole thing…

When Mom and Dad returned, they came back with my birthday present from my brother. I had mailed up his birthday present, but mine was much too heavy to mail. It was worth the wait!

A new feature for Squirrelington’s that is not just cool, but lights up as well. Yes… we know squirrels don’t come out at night, but who cares? It looks AWESOME! It holds about 1 kg of peanuts at a time, so it means I have to go out and fill it less often.

He made it so it can be attached to a fence or a tree (hence the ladder to the bar level), but for now I’m keeping it on top of the garden cart with Squirrelington’s main dining section.

It did not take long for the patrons to discover the new addition.

And soon enough they had the whole thing figured out.

I haven’t seen the blue jays at it yet, so I’m not sure how they will feel about it. But it’s been a hit with the squirrels.

Oh… an just like any other bar….

There’s shells left all over the floor!

  1. Obviously your brother knows you well and just what you would like. I probably wouldn’t get anything else done because I would be watching Squirrelingtons all day.
    The puppies are so sweet. I can’t even begin to tell you how much we’re missing Chloe. I cry several times a day and Dennis is almost as bad. I seriously lauged at Jem. So, so sweet.

    WOW! That is such a wonderful birthday gift. Your brother gets extra points because he obviously pays attention to the things you do and enjoy. The dogs are so adorable.
