A surprise guest

Our first snow in two years and it’s a doozy.

I like it when I am warm and cozy inside and everybody else is too. It is a great time to read from Whittier’s Snowbound or some Longfellow. Or anything, really. It is reading weather (pro-tip: all weather is reading weather). So after doing some cleaning and reorganizing for a bit and posting pictures of the snow for my friends back in the Philippines (who were gratifyingly complimentary), I took a few bòoks and climbed under a pile of blankets.

Had to leave my blankets because we had an unexpected guest drop in on us.




I caught it under the bucket and then, having done my part of the physical work, I hung back and advised my husband how *he* could pick young Chipster up and put it in the tub. I even fetched the flat bit of cardboard and had it all ready for the Man of the House to use while I filmed the exploit from a non-rabies inducing distance.

Critter is clearly injured somehow or I never could have caught it. It holds its head sideways. I kind of think it got caught in a mousetrap.

We are currently feeding it and keeping it quiet in a tub in the garage to show grandkids later. After that, i don’t know.
