Then the chicks wanted to make fries. We were all craving a bit of salt and fried food. I think it's been over a month and a half since we've been to Chick -fil- a.It was all so tasty. We have more taters so I think we'll have a sticky chicken and sweet tater dinner this week. Then I'll put the fryer away for another 2 years!
On the same day . Many of us were in the kitchen when Hawk Nelson (our neighborhood hawk) started zooming in a flying sort of way around our oak tree. Then we saw the fuzzy little squirrel he was hoping to have for Sunday brunch. It was amazing to watch the drama play out.
My little chicks were not happy at all. Superman wanted to help Hawk by...well never mind. And I wasn't sure I wanted to see the poor little thing mangled before our eyes. But we watched on for a good 8 minutes. It was wondrous to see Hawk fly in almost slow motion around the tree branches and the little squirrel hide on the underside of the limbs, hoping to fool Hawk.
Hawk never caught the thing. He must have decided it wasn't worth his time and effort because he went to another tree and watched the little guy come out and run off.
Later when we were frying the taters I saw a little squirrel squawking like the owned the whole backyard. Better watch out!
It reminded me yet again of how pride goes before a fall...
