After yesterday’s snowfall, I woke up this morning to some glorious sunshine. It looks like I wasn’t the only one who’d been craving some warmth because as I settled down at my desk I looked out the window and saw this:

Basking Squirrels

A family of squirrels have built themselves a nest in that dead tree and this morning one by one they crawled out and just basked in the sunshine. One in particular stayed that way for at least half an hour until he too scurried back into his den.

I know exactly how he felt because I too stood on my porch this morning soaking up the rays until I felt their warmth all the way through to my bones.
