How to Hibernate during the Winter
At this time of the year, many are considering whether or not to hibernate for the Winter.
There are pros and cons to sleeping through this period.
On one paw, it is nice to avoid the wet weather, icy winds and freezing temperatures.
It gives you a good excuse to have a huge meal to keep your strength up.
We all know how tiring a long sleep can be. If you are a squirrel you might like some of the walnuts we have that came from a French garden over the weekend.
Hibernating also gives you the chance to put off all the things you have been meaning to do.
Like knitting pink socks.
On the other paw, the cold winter weather is very good for refreshing fur or feathers.
If you are intending to stay awake over the winter, it is best to find yourself a comfortable place near the fire.
Not too near that you get scorched while you are sleeping.
The best plan for the winter is to compromise, sleep in October, wake up for Halloween and Bonfire Night, then sleep through November.
Wake up mid-December, make a quick dash to Harrods for a few presents, then return home to watch all the Christmas T.V. that you can.......
I didn't knit Amie's pink socks by the way, she keeps slipping on the floor so we thought it would be a good solution to the problem. As you see she wasn't that amused, even though they had sticky grips on the bottom. There is still a chance to try them on Mew or Frank.
Another group we know won't be hibinateing this year.
Our three kids and our grandkids....
It was our eldest son's birthday yesterday, we won't say how old he is.
Karina on the left is at this moment having a brand new hip replacement.
Titanium is the very "in" thing.
One down and one to go Karina..... That's our girl !
