Feeling like a nut


Warning: the Internet may contain traces of nuts. - Author Unknown

After yesterday's challenges filled with friends and their progressing cancer, Doogie becoming very ill and my Mom's pain increasing, I decided to have some fun by chiming in on  Sandra's Silly photo day.

These pictures were taken on my Mom's deck about 6:00 in the morning.  I thought it rather unusual for a nut to be left lying there with its innards a few inches away.  Perhaps I interrupted a squirrels breakfast when I let Doogie out to potty?? Guess I'll never know. 

PS:  Which are you - Mounds or Almond Joy? I'm a nut - through and through - so I'll take an Almond Joy any day.

Hope you have a fun-nutty kinda day!

  2. Well I must admit ~ I am a bit on the Almond Joy side myself! ;) Those photos are great ~ very warm colors!

    I am sending the warmest thoughts to you in regards to those around you that are feeling ill. Make sure you take care of yourself too!

    Hope you have a blissful day!

  3. Sometimes I feel like an empty shell, like that nut on the left. It is terrible to feel like that. I am happy that feeling comes on infrequently and doesn't last long.

  6. I have been known to partake of a Baby Ruth every so often. It's when I'm traveling and really hungry and need a snack and not in my normal routine. My excuse is it has plenty of protein... and I guess I'll stick with that story. :)

    Nicely framed photos, Stacey. Sorry about yesterday's challenges. Hang in there.

  9. Great pictures, Stacey! Honestly, in answer to your question, I am neither. I don't care for coconut but I do love almonds. Isn't it funny how you find things sometimes. Praying for you. Hope you have a good day today.

  10. Peter Paul Almond Joy's got nuts, Mounds don't!! That's the rest of the words to the commercial song. Life is hard and serious, Phil's big question that he asks everyone is "Why does life have to be so hard?" It helps to get through life if you can laugh at yourself and at small problems. I think people who take themselves too seriously run the risk of being pompous and boring. So I hope I'm a nut in all the right ways, to say the nutty thing at the right times and give people a little smile.

  14. The first quote really 'cracked' me up, I love the photos.

    Sorry to hear about all the illnesses and challenges in your life lately but smiles can always lift our spirits.

    I am a Almond Joy, nutty all the way. With a screen name like SquirrelQueen how could I be anything else.

    Thanks for joining us in the challenge.

  18. It's very important to take some time to be silly, and have fun. Keeps us sane in the seemingly never-ending occurrences and calamities of life. Or, if it doesn't keep us sane, at least makes use smile.

    I like your photographs, and like to imagine the squirrel not far off, cussing you out in the most colorful of Squirrel language. Hey, I wonder what the biggest insult would be in Squirrelese?

    I must ponder that. Not so that I can lob at you, but because it might be fun to think of a insults being bandied about the squirrel playground.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures, and congratulations on the post of the week mention over at Hilary's blog.

  21. Hands down I'm an Almond Joy gal. Great photos and you do have to wonder who left the remnants of either breakfast or a midnight snack lying there...

    Congrats on POTW from Hilary!

    You don't have to apologize, you linked up just fine. It is all a group of friends having fun.

    I'm also in WA, on the other side of the state in Walla Walla.
