I waded through acorns, got the birdseed, served the waiting turkeys, and shut the door. I simply don't know how I'm going to dispose of all these acorns. Can't put 'em in the trash, can't burn 'em, can't imagine the mountain of acorns if I pile 'em down the hill. It will take a week just to get 'em out of the shed! This is going to require some careful thought. One thing for sure, life at Farview is full of surprises and some, like this one, just make me laugh.
I got another, better, surprise later when I stopped to pick up my mail on the way to the grocery store. Santa had left a gaily wrapped small package in the box. Since it was from Santa Claus (he'd signed it), I will wait until Christmas to open it, but I am definitely curious.
Two surprises in one day were enough for me.
