"Hey Psssst!"

"Lively and speedy critters, chipmunks are small members of the squirrel family. Their pudgy cheeks, large, glossy eyes, stripes, and bushy tails have made them a favorite among animators, and landed them a series of starring roles in Hollywood." (quote found on the National Geographic website)

And now they are playing a starring roll in our back yard. How cute are they? {smile}

At my new knitting spot at the backyard window, I had already spotted a little Chipmunk a few days ago. I quickly made sure to have my camera ready for the next time, and this morning I happened to spot not one, but two little critters. They are super speedy and I was glad I was able to 'catch' them so to speak...

PS: Exciting times over here: Miss M. is waiting to hear back from all of her university applications this week and next. So far a yes for the University of Washington! (here in Seattle) We should hear of at least one (and maybe three) tomorrow, another one on Saturday and another on Wednesday. Keep your fingers crossed!
