MoJo is MIA


Above is My Stash for you know what, this might jog your  memory as to what I save the pine cones for. If photo doesn't jog it Click Here.



Above is how they look when I pick them up, closed tight. Below is what they do in a couple of days


Below is fully open. I had about 25 opened ones, I said to Bob, what did you do with my pine cones? He said I did not touch the pine cones. Well, half of them are MIA... so where are they???


the answer below.... the little devils carry them off, sit in the tree, chew until they get the seed out, and drop those sharp pointy thingy's on the ground for my bare feet to find.

(yes, MadSnapper has lost her bloggin mojo and am forced to do yada yada blah blah)

I liked this. And that cute little furry guy. I wish we had them here. But cactus is not on their appetite list, I suppose.

Ha! Squirrels do enjoy the seeds! I wonder what my husband would say if I collected a little stash of pine cones to burn. I bet the aroma is wonderful!

Cranberry Morning said...

Just think of the pleasure those little squirrels are getting from your pine cones! :-)

I wonder if our mojos are having a good time together. Mine seems to be missing too. Maybe it's the time of year.

Remington said...

I bet the squirrel is happy! Beth loses her mojo sometimes too....

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

I understand losing your blogging mojo. but you do well, even when that happens to you.

Pointy things under bare feet. Yikes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Susannah said...

Ouch! I hate sharp things under my feet!!!!! Maybe you should hide them from the squirrels....just the few you want to keep.

TexWisGirl said...

they were happy for the food delivery!

Thanks for the awesome pictures of your Pine Cones, my favorite! Well you know they need to poop out those seeds for a new tree to grow.

SweetMarie said...

How sweet of you to share, even if you didn't realize it. :) That young squirrel is so adorable!!

Those peaky squirrels.Hope you are enjoying a lovely day.

LC said...

No! Your mojo's still working. I had forgotten your pine cone fireplace and enjoyed the refresher. Burning pine cones is entertainment for me, both in our fireplace at home and in a campfire when we are camping.

No wonder Hubby calls me a "cheap date."

Welcome to the club....
Sometimes the MOJO is hard to find that's for sure.
Love your shots anyway and the personality that comes through.

Pam ;) said...

Those pesky critters sure do enjoy pine nuts and anything else they stuff in those little cheeks.
Love your header Sandra.

be well n happy ~:)

Ann said...

This doesn't look like losing your mojo to me. Awesome macros on the pine cones.
I kept finding little pieces on pine cone on the living room floor and couldn't figure out where it was coming from. Finally figured out Duke was taking them out of the basket I have them in and chewing on them

Mamabug said...

Girl I can't quit laughing! I had a bucket full on the porch and those darn tree rats stole mine too!

SquirrelQueen said...

Hey, a squirrel has to make a living too and those pine nuts are tasty. He is a little cutie. I should gather a few out of our yard before I start raking and putting them in the debris can.

Betsy Adams said...

Hi There, Doesn't look like you have lost your blog-jo!!!! This is a cute post... SO--the stinkin' Squirrels are the ones who have taken your pine cones..... You need to turn them over your knee and spank them GOOD... Bad Squirrels...

Hugs,
Betsy

Miss Debbie said...

Yes, they are cute but they are thieves!! I know this from experience. Love your "green" header!

George said...

The cousins of your little culprit live in Tennessee. I'll be glad to send them down to Florida in order to reunite the family.

EM Illustrator said...

Heidrun Khokhar, KleinsteMotte said...

Well I find all this very interesting so my mojo must be gone too??

Dee said...

LOL..I have not lost my mojo...but nothing much is happening in my life to blog about...but maybe it is not suppose to...it keeps me looking deeper at the life around me that is simplistic but very much my real and normal daily life.

Those little thieves!

DawnTreader said...

I remember your pine cones and what you used them for... Surely you cannot stay angry at that cute squirrel, though! I did not know what MIA stood for, had to look it up. We all have days feeling like that, no panic.

S. Etole said...

Those squirrels can be a bit pesky.

Chatty Crone said...

So the squirrels are taking your pine cones - why those dirty little thieves. I have two sets of families in my attic now - I hate those little critters! lol sandie

Rebecca said...
