I Smell Birdseed!

“A day of worry is more exhausting than a week of work.”
– John Lubbock

I Smell Birdseed! – 2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor ATC

“I’m Sigbert the Squirrel.  The thing I like best about spring is BIRD SEED!  I smell BIRD SEED!!  Where’s the BIRD SEED?  Sorry about all the shouting.”

This little ATC went to Sue in Australia.

About John Lubbock

John Lubbock, the multifaceted British banker, statesman, and scientist, was responsible for the institution of England’s monthly Bank Holidays, sometimes referred to as St. Lubbock Days. He was born in 1834 in England. Growing up, he learned science from his father’s friend Charles Darwin. He coined the terms Paleolithic and Neolithic to denote the different Stone Ages, and he wrote the well-regarded books Prehistoric Times and Ants, Bees, and Wasps. He died in 1913.

    Is that squirrel sitting on a table? LOL! I like your quote too. I worry way too much. No wonder I’m always exhausted.

      Thanks, Carol! You just never know where I am going to put critters when I paint. 🙂 I used to worry a lot, but I’m better. I just had to realize it didn’t do any good.
