For the last several weeks I’ve had a major distraction; squirrels. We call them all Timmy. Timmy likes to take the suet from the bird feeder and hide it so he can chow down later. We have a baffle over the feeder but he’s found a way to get around it. A few weekks ago I set my pumpkins out on the porch after giving them two coats of polyurethane. That was like an appetizer for Timmy. I was pretty teed off to find chunks of my pumpkins missing.
After an online search I decided to try medicated Vaseline. Those pumpkins were slicked up real good and you could smell the Vaseline as soon as you stepped on the porch. Three days later I noticed another chunk was missing. Really Timmy?!?! Now I reapply every couple of days. So far so good. I bet my neighbors think I have lost it, but my pumpkins are shiny and intact. The other added benefit, no solicitors!
This is what Timmy did to my pumpkin last year.
Now that I’m not shooing squirrels away maybe I can get to the rest of my baking and decorating projects. Thanks for being here and I hope the rest of your week is awesome!
Sandra’s Favorites from Last Week’s Party
Jamie who blogs at Anderson and Grant has a winner on her hands. These Walnut Crescent 1cookies look melt in your mouth delicious.
Along with sweets, bread is one of my weaknesses. Morgan over at Morgan Manages Mommyhood whipped up a batch of 4 Ingredient Pizza Rolls and they are so tempting.
