Lazy Summer Days

My alarm is set for September.

My alarm is set for September.

Today is the last full official day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, which means Summer is literally right around the corner.  The solstice occurs tomorrow, and where I live, it’s been anything but summerlike this past week.  It has rained pretty much the majority of the past 7 days, a monsoonish period this part of the country rarely sees.sqturday squirrel logo

But last week it was definitely very warm and toasty, and that’s when I took this photo of a squirrel totally chilling out in one of my neighbor’s trees.  Summer weather is hard enough on us humans, but it must be really uncomfortable for the furry critters out there.  The crepuscular activity of the local squirrels has definitely begun picking up lately… and for much of the next couple months, the rare time a squirrel can be spotted during broad daylight hours, it’ll very likely be lounging around on a limb like this week’s Saturday Squirrel is doing.  He may not look very happy, but he’s definitely got it made in the shade…

Have a great first weekend of summer, and happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there!

    This damn rain needs to stop. All of my plants are having to learn to do the backstroke! And it’s supposed to get into the 90s here today. I might just have to join that little squirrel and chill out on my belly.

    He reminds me of a kid that looked forward to summer vacation for the last 9 months and, now that school’s been out close to three weeks, he’s already bored…

  3. Talk about just hanging around. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a relaxed squirrel. They always seems to constantly busy. Give that squirrel a hammock!!

    I love to see squirrels just chilling out on hot summer afternoons. It makes me feel less guilty about my inclination to nap the afternoon away. And what’s cuter than a sleeping squirrel? Not much, in my opinion!

  5. The squirrels in your neighbourhood must be very relaxed. ❤

  6. So precious. I love squirrels. How can anyone not love them (even when they run on the roof at 5:00 am barking like banshees.) They are just so darned cute.
