Man - this long weekend has really thrown me off - I can't believe tomorrow is Thursday!!!
Today was an interesting day. My lovely little pussycat brought a lovely little present into my house ... and then let him go. Yep - when I saw him sitting and starting at the bottom of the stove I figured he had a mouse ... but there wasn't a large enough space for a mouse so I was VERY hopeful it was just a grasshopper. Even the dog got into the act of keeping vigil to see what emerged from the depths of *behind the stove* .... (insert creepy *da, da, daaaaaaa* music here ...)
I was completely creeped out but couldn't stand around staring at a stove all day so I *went in* ... picture the scene ... me in my housecoat looking ravishing as ever ... with an oven mitt on one hand and a pancake spatula in the other, making a scrunchy face ... I sloooooowly opened the drawer under the oven door .... slooooooowly ... I peeked into the darkness (swatted the cat with the spatula to get the hell out of the way!!) and saw ....................... MY MINI MUFFIN TIN - YAY! I was WONDERING where that thing went!!!
So! I carried on with my morning chores hoping beyond hope that the mouse was really just a grasshopper and I wouldn't actually be eaten alive in my sleep by a vicous rodent later tonight. About an hour later I hear a mighty racket coming from the laundry room. It was the cat. Oh Dear Lord. I suspect my grasshopper is a mouse. I went to investigate, spatula in hand. There I find Charlie up to his armpit (assuming cats have armpits ... DO cat's have armpits? Are they CALLED armpits? No - that would be silly ... they don't have arms ... they have four legs!) Right! So I find Charlie up to his legpit (well that just sounds RUDE!)
Having had enough of this I take the girls and go shopping only to return after Craig is home from work. He is hunting for the mouse. He confirms there IS a mouse because there is mouse poop all over the laundry room. Fabulous. I leave him to it and go start dinner. 10 minutes later I hear him yell "I need a glove!!!!" Yes, the rodent HAS been spotted! I try to find a glove ... at which point Craig is now yelling "CLOSE THE DOOR, CLOSE THE DOOR!" ... the children are shrieking, the dog is in the way, I'm trying to close the door - all hell has broken loose! I slam the door shut and a minute later Craig emerges ... victorious ...
So that was MY day! Yep - rarely a dull moment around our house!
Oh - FYI, no, I don't actually have a project to share with you today. Were you even LISTENING?? I didn't have time to craft today. I'm actually doing a test drive to see if I'm smarter than your average bear ... I'm seeing if this post will automatically feed in my Stampin' Up! Business Website ... the one with my on-line store and calendar of events (www.tamarabertram.stampinup.net). There is a blog feature on that site ... but I like THIS blog ... and this blog name ... but I also want one-stop-shopping through my other site ... SO ... I'm trying to get posts from HERE to automatically post THERE so that both sites are updated at the same time without any extra work. Clever, yes? Yep - that's me! Now ... if I can only be smart enough to close and lock the screen door so the stupid cat doesn't bring vermin into my house!!
Until next time ... have a stampy night!
