Chick and Chips

I managed to get in a bit of stitching yesterday afternoon.
Flower done and rooster started.

Thursday morning was cold - the birdbaths had shards of ice.  This time of year a light frost is pretty much shrugged off as far as the plants are concerned.  No damage to anything.  The last couple of days have been sunny - but cool and windy too.  We are supposed to have warmer weather Friday through Sunday - Joy!

Lately a couple of the chipmunks have taken on suicide missions and are hanging out on our Back Porch.

Thursday morning Parvati gave it her best effort while I was busy filling the bird feeders.  I returned just in to save a life, as she was batting the chipmunk between her paws like a ping-pong ball. 

The silly rodent then ran into the stack of wood on the Back Porch, and proceeded to yell at Parvati for the next half hour or so - thus continually reengaging her interest in Chipmunk Annihilation.

No one ever wrote a doctorate on the intelligence of chipmunks...

..and there are many good reasons why! 

Silly 'munks - they are cute though!

Oh that's hilarious about the "muttering munk". I've seen that same behaviour here but with a squirrel. Quite funny. Glad you got to save a life though.

Nice start on your new piece!

Cute but very silly - like Melissa mentioned we have squirrels that do the same. They run up the wall and then "bark" at our poodle.
