Now that I have finally been able to catch up on emails, I hope to start sorting through our France photos. I have been quite the busy bee at my new house also – the craft room is almost complete. I need one more organization unit and then everything will have a place! The living room is cleared out to begin painting. The bedroom is cleaned up waiting for the inspiration needed to commit to colors. The dining room will be sorted out more once the living room is done. The kitchen…well all three of us are still avoiding that mess. Until I can get the dining room more cleared to bring my hutch in from the garage, there is just too much crap in there.
In other kitty news, get this. While we were in France, our girls caught their first mouse. Chris let us know that they left it by their food dish. The day we arrived home, boy and I found a chipmunk in the living room, so i properly gave it a resting place outside. I had thought we were in the clear from nasty bloody messes but apparently not.
This last weekend, we came home to find a fresh trophy on their food plate (thank goodness it wasnt on my bed or anything that might be stained!). It was just a mouse head, with the blood and brains still oozing out. Immediately we began the search for the rest of it, but to no avail. Then later, boy tells me “hey, i found the mouse!”. It had happened to be inside Sashas tummy, as she puked it up in the hallway – bones, fur, feet, tail, and all. Gross! Incidentally, we have searched out some holes and filled them up so hopefully no more bloody surprises await us.
I will leave you with a contemplative photo from France. Oh how i wish i could be on that bench dreaming away the day again!
