This Nut

While the kids were in school yesterday I ran my usual errands.


Trader Joe's.

Quick lunch with Justin.

Sat for 15 minutes in traffic in the middle of the day on my way to get Vaughn from school.

(Stay with me, I'm getting to it.)

We made it back home and I put Vaughn down for a nap that she ended up not taking. While she was supposed to be napping I made at least 4 or 5 trips up and down the stairs doing one thing or another. On my 6th (or something like that) trip down the stairs I see this:

Just sitting there. Smack dab in the middle of one of the steps.

What is it? I couldn't tell until I got close. It looked like a little blob of dried mud.

Where did it come from? I'm sure I would have seen it on all my previous trips up and down the stairs.

We don't have a squirrel. And if we did I would demand that he wouldn't leave his nuts lying about the house.

Does this stuff happen at your house? Because it always happens around here.


It's Wednesday, but feels like Tuesday because of Monday feeling like Sunday due to the holiday. I'm out of whack. Hopefully today I can get back on track. Have a good one.

  1. I may have the secret to the acorn. Vance had some prize ones from my house. He and Carter were throwing them in the lake. He probably kept one in a pocket, and it fell out.

  2. Makes sense to how it got here. But, I would have seen it. I mean, it was in the middle of the step and it wasn't there until the middle of the day. Stuff like this doesn't go unnoticed around here. I'm still thinking it's a mysterious squirrel! :)
