Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

Phil and I went for a picnic to Sikome Lake about two years ago, but unfortunately, it lacked activity. Sikome Lake is a man-made lake and it was subdued because of renovations. We were still allowed to go in, it’s just that nobody else was around.. besides a squirrel.

I packed a picnic basket full of different crackers. The Breton round ones remind me of the body of Christ *haha. Among other things such as fruit, some cheese, and salami. As soon as we laid our blankets out and our food, out jumps a squirrel. It was black and the cutest little thing and friendly!? I had never seen a squirrel so subdued and close! It came right up to where we were laying, as a matter of fact, not even afraid. I suspected it wanted some of our food; I mean what else would a squirrel want right? 🙂

That squirrel could pack it in, no problem. I think it ate more than we did! Right out of our hands. It even let us feel and touch it. We were enjoying its company and had no desire to hurt him or disturb him in any way. It was in no danger. He was our little welcome visitor.

It ate the crackers we gave it, sitting up on his hind legs, holding the wafer between its paws looking right at us. He was very cute. I didn’t have a camera with me. Otherwise, it would have been nice to take some pictures that day.

We thought it was the friendliest squirrel we had ever encountered. In fact, it made our picnic more enjoyable.

It was the first time a squirrel came up to us and climbed right over Phil to get to the basket. Haha! It stayed on our blanket between the both of us until it had enough to eat; enough to pack both cheeks full like two giant balloons on the side of his mouth. Incredible!

Like I said, it probably ate more than we did.
