Hiding and Twittering

Have you noticed the squirrels? Everyday on my walk to and from work for the last week or more there have been squirrels rushing and digging and hiding. They are so busy with the preparations they are making that they hardly even skitter away when I come by. Just keep digging and rushing. Because things are changing you know. The night coming earlier and a little chill in the air gives us the reminder that we should be thinking of sweet potatoes and pumpkins.
Also warning us is the constant twittering. The crickets are playing non-stop, chirp, chirp, chirp. I am not sure what they are saying, maybe just staying warm with the constant motion. And the birds are talking! About migrations and weather and stupid humans, no doubt.
So that is what I have noticed. Change is coming.

It's mating season! Sometimes, I can't sleep for all the noise.

Perhaps you should be quieter during sex so you can get some sleep...
