I hope everyone is enjoying their Friday.
Today is a kid free day, and also a day to get some work done, including caulking around the tub.
I know, I know, its a charmed life.
I can feel your jealousy from here.
It’s not always this glamorous.
This is mouse.
(picture of me, holding my cat, she wants nothing of it)
Mouse is a bit weird.
That’s ok, she fits in.
One of the things that makes her weird, is her enjoyment of inhalants and other substances not usually enjoyed by housecats.
She goes crazy over/tries to eat:
- smelly junk mail, especially if its sealed with rubber cement
- magazines, especially if they have perfume inserts
- my herbal tea
- new paint
As of today I can add bathroom caulk to the list.
I began to caulk and she ran into the bathroom with a wild look of ecstasy.
“I can has caulk??”
I shut her out of the bathroom.
Shutting the door made me feel rather light headed, but better that then having to explain her substance abuse issues to the vet.
She’s sulking now.
I should update you guys on some of our ongoing projects.
The closed terrarium
It. has been sealed over a month and as predicted is happy and has grown. There have been at least two generations of little gnats living in there as well.
Speaking of insects, next we have:
The pollinator garden
We’re getting quite a few insect visitors.
The Bee Houses
The mason bee make a smooth mud covering, while leaf cutter are lumpy.
We have several plants, all from one potato:
We recently completed both trails at Oregon Ridge, and the trail at Marshy Point. Here we are at Marshy Point looking at an Eastern box turtle spotted by Tessa.
Kevin, a new, and rapidly becoming a very important person in my life, took the above photo. I don’t blog about love. Maybe I should.
Anyhow, here’s the box turtle:
That’s it for project updates.
Time to get back to the chores.
Enjoy your weekend. 🙂
