Sophia's latest larder

I put a bag of old walnuts onto the compost heap, because some of them had been attacked by insects.

Not surprisingly, Sophia saw this as wasteful behavior, which she's not prepared to tolerate. So, on wintry afternoons, whenever Sophia feels that she hasn't consumed a sufficient quantity of calories to keep out the cold, she'll have a handy larder.


  1. Yes, she has no trouble cracking open a walnut and then separating the fragments of edible kernel from the shell. Admittedly, she prefers to drop in on me whenever I'm performing this operation, using a hammer. When I'm opening walnuts for my home-made bread, Sophia receives every 7th or 8th opened walnut. I see this as a fair share.
