I call her my little mischief maker these days
here she is lying on top of the leather loveseat as close as she is allowed to be to the counter where the cooktop is located.
I spend a lot of time at the stove and she likes to be near me...
I do not want her to walk across the halogen elements,
I shudder to think how awful that would be.
notice her paw is just testing me to see if I'll react!
she loves to get into things...
my grocery bags for example
I don't know how long she was playing in here before I found her
long enough for me to get my camera and capture a few images...
I went grocery shopping and took these bags as is my habit.
I don't always shop at Thrifty Foods although it is the closest option,
my favourite market is near work
about a 30 minute drive from the Bungalow.
I like the insulation these bags offer to keep the cold things cold for the drive home.
Imagine the shock when the clerk opened the bags and spied a small grey mouse hiding in the bottom of the bag...
and when she showed it to me...
and all within earshot came running to see what we were all in a tizzy about...
I totally embarrassed myself
and when I got over the shock and humiliation
I saw the humour in the situation
I am home and the groceries are put away
and Pepper has her mouse back...
she will be having surgery soon
I feel a little like an anxious mother
she still seeems so young and vulnerable
the adoption agreement
requires that the pet will be spayed
and of course that's what we'll do
I am a responsible pet owner
I saw a TV show recently about feral cats that live on the street
the volunteers that feed them
and the vets who spay them before returning them back to their neighbourhoods
it's a huge problem
I know in my heart it's the right thing to do
I can't help feeling worried about Pepper
she has carved a spot in my heart
she is a constant companion
Blighty has given me a blogger award
and after watching the Golden Globes...
I feel that I must step up to the plate.
As requested I am to post 7 things about myself
I do not own a red carpet dress,
I am wearing dark denim jeans, a black 3/4 sleeved tee and my standard issue pearls
I was a member of the Junior League when we had an active chapter here in town
I loved being involved in the many worthy causes that the League supported and the network of women working together taught me much.
I am a list maker and in my daybook I note our nightly dinner menus and have done since 1979
I do not have a sweet tooth although I do enjoy the occasional chocolate...
I have recently bleached my teeth...as my dentist recommended.
He made an impression of my teeth and provided some solution to be used every other day for 2 weeks
I cannot leave the house without wearing tinted foundation, mascara and lip gloss.
I do not like washing my car...
hence the floor mats are littered with leaves and there is a fine film of dirt on the body
as it has been a few months since I took it to the car wash.
I am meant to tag 15 bloggers now and here is where it gets tricky for me...
I do not want to add any obligation
if you want to post on this please do so and leave a comment
I will pop over and read
your 7 things...
I hope Blighty that you do not judge me too harshly :(
