White squirrels!

It is not uncommon to see white squirrels where we live. We saw one yesterday when we were driving across town!

It’s not unusual...but it is still very exciting!

This is a website that tells some of the history... HERE !

I had an ‘off day’ yesterday. When you have one of those, it seems like you feel even better the next day! I went to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned. It really didn’t hurt....and I really like to get my teeth cleaned but everything seemed a little more difficult. I felt more tense for some reason and more stressed out for no reason!

So today’s a new day!

And I’m happy to be alive and well! heehee!

(I don’t know what the crane is doing...NOTHING I hope! lol)

It’s going to be a GREAT DAY!

I’m going to play some music and use some of my aromatherapy (I’ll post more about that later) and get lots done!

What are your plans today?

Will they be stressful...or relaxing?

I've seen gray, black and tan squirrels but never a white one. Cool. As of this morning, I'm physically back to work with a walking cast. I'd been working virtually, but it's nice to see my colleagues again. I feel like a new happier woman!

Here's to hoping that today is an easier more relaxing day for you.

I have seen a white one as well. I see all the weird things and most of the time no one believes me.
Try some lavendar to help you relax....he he.
I also went to the dentist for a cleaning yesterday. It was weird. No x-rays.....I was in a hurry so was glad but they always do them. I walked out with a bleach stain on a new favorite top of mine. They don't seem to know how that happened.
Yes, today will be a better day for both of us. (((((HUGS))))

Gorgeous landscape pic. Sounds like a good day ahead for you.

Have a great week ~

Well, hopefully it will be relaxing! I have NOTHING on the calendar today except my daughter's softball practice tonight at 6:00...but you never know what the day has in store! I hope you are well :)

Miss Lavender Dreams, you had a poppy day yesterday? Poor baby. You should have called me. (o:

We are expecting severe storms later this afternoon so Mom ran to the store (well, actually she drove) and picked up Molly Brown's pills (she is very ascared of storms so we give her "happy juice" to calm her). Jessie curls up and goes to sleep - she doesn't care.

As for me - I'm just gonna "hang around" and maybe play in the craft room.

Hi Wendy, what's ya doin'?

Hugs ♥

I'm trying to relax today but family stress is hard to shake. hugs, Linda

Odd that you should mention the dentist. The mere thought of an upcoming appt. has me unsettled. I think I need a pill before any dental procedures. My tolerance level for such things is way low these days. ☺

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

I've never seen a white squirrel - never even knew there was such a thing. We see lots of black ones tho.

The Boston Lady said...

Well, I've just figured out that you live in both NC and FL! I'm slow on the uptake. I thought you had been vacationing in NC. How wonderful that you can enjoy two of the most beautiful states in the country. I have never seen one of those white squirrels...

Today I will be catching up and relaxing after a very hectic 10 days. Aaaaaah. Ann

White squirrel, white teeth!! Speaking of... I had my teeth whitened once at a dentist... paid $250 or more and the result was so, so and didn't last long. Is there a secret to this? I've been using the whitening strips.

Cranberry Morning said...

I've seen all-black squirrels around here, but never a white one. How fun! Kinda hard for him to hide, isn't it.

I was going to accomplish a lot today, but so far it's take three dogs to the vet for their annuals, take a meal to a church family who just welcomed a new baby, mailed a package, ate lunch, and I have a pollen-related headache that I need to sleep off.

Have a lovely afternoon and evening!

Girlfriend...I've seen a lot of animals and little critters in my life but NEVAHHHHh EVAHHHH a white squirrel. Didn't even know God made them!

About teeth...

I wore braces for five years and so going to the dentist twice a year for check-ups is fine. But...the older I get the more I dislike being messed with. It's less about my mouth and more about sitting in those uncomfortable chairs!

Today I'm relaxing! YEAH!

Hi Diane,
My folks are moving to a new home and we saw a white squirrel in their yard yesterday. When I was a little girl...my grandma had one at her house and it got so used to us that could hand feed it.
Today...I am doing a little sewing and then going over to help my mom get ready for their garage that is on Friday.
hugs,
Cindy

I would have went through life never knowing they existed without you sharing this. Thank you!

I dont think I've ever seen a white squirrel!...

and it's a rainy day here.. I'm relaxing some, cleaning the office some, booked a vacation, yay!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

I didn't even know those rodents existed in white! Not sure how I feel about that as we've had some bad experiences with them getting into our house before, biting people in town and terrorizing our birds at the feeder! Glad you're having a better day though!

NanaDiana said...

We had an albino squirrel when we lived in a little town just South of us. His tail was very, very sparse and he was always kind of scrawny looking. They are amazing, aren't they?

We also had a whole clan of pure black squirrels when we lived in Door County. They are quite rare, too. xo Diana

Shannon@Cozy Home Scenes said...

The white squirrel is cute but I'm like several others in not ever having seen one. The views you show us from NC are so beautiful and peaceful looking. I hope you are caught up with dental appointments and don't have to go for awhile. I am overdue but keep procrastinating about going because the dentist office is not on my list of favorite things to do. I have been catching up on some much needed house work today. That is not on my favorites list either but you know the old saying, a woman's work is never done!! That is true around here anyway. Hope you feel great and are enjoying a nice day, my friend.----- Shannon

sandy said...

I just recently saw a white squirrel also. I had never seen one before so I tried to capture a photo but it was too quick for me. Your photo is great!

I always try to plan for some relaxation in my day. I use aromatherapy, deep breathing, music, nature and more! It has become a habit to make relaxation an intentional part of my day! ;)

Gina said...

I have never seen a white squirrel! That is quite an uncommon sight for me!

I hope you enjoyed your day!

What a beautiful squirrel! All we have here are the grayish brown ones. We used to see a black one at Anderson Park in Tarpon Springs....Christine

By the time I got here it's already evening, and I hope it to be relaxing...:)

White squirrels are so beautiful! We had one around here, and now theyve made a white squirrel cafe, (think shirts, cups, mugs) and even named a street after it. :)
