Where’s the snow? It’s cold out there but there’s no snow. That seems like such a waste of cold. Aren’t we supposed to be conserving or something? We have no snow and it’s cold. That’s not conserving in my mind. Besides, there’s not even any sun!!! If we can’t have snow, can we at least have sun?
Steinbeck, will you quit your grumbling and watch for the squirrels, bunnies and birds? With all the racket you’re making about no snow, they’re going to get scared and stay away.
Fine, maybe I’ll go help Mom make the bed. I know she can’t do it without my help.
Steinbeck, come look. The squirrel is hanging upside down from the bird feeder again.
Hemingway, it’s hard to tell, but he’s looking right at me!
Did that make you forget about the fact we have cold and no snow.
Not really. But at least it gave me something else to do. Besides, I found my kicky-throw-in-the-air toy and that always makes me happy.
Sigh…….It’s a good thing Mom had today off from work. I get so tired taking care of this little one!
