On days that I don’t have to pick Abby up from school, I like to take the bus to the park and walk home from there – so much nicer than going straight home from a crowded city bus. One day last week I stopped at my favorite bakery and got a scone and a tea. There were two violinists playing on the corner and I could hear the music all the way up the street as I walked into the park. I sat down in Shakespeare Garden to enjoy my snack and soon felt like I was being watched.
I looked over and this little guy was looking at me, eyes wide. City squirrels are bold. I know this, but I couldn’t help smile all the same. So there we sat – my squirrel friend and me, sharing a scone. He asked for seconds and thirds. I told you city squirrels are bold. I obliged. How could I not.
I couldn’t have felt more like Snow White or Sleeping Beauty if I wore a ball gown and burst into song.
Happy Monday friends.
