I found this silly bookmark when I was cleaning my desk!
Made with a rubber stamp I borrowed from my friend, Lynnette, on one of our craft weekend marathons when I lived in Minneapolis. He is just so goofy! Glad I found the barefooted wizard again. :)
We had two beautiful days where I could actually open the place up...day and night! Blue skies and big puffy clouds, 70s and a breeze...well, windy. Anyways, it was glorious!!
Karma was thrilled to have the big living room windows open so she could sit in the chair in her sideways spy position...
...to observe the people and swallows.
The swallows love our building. The first summer I lived here we had a nest on top of the light fixture on the balcony. Loved it! Karma and I would sit and watch them come and go thru the bedroom window or the porch door screen...but what a mess to clean up afterwards!! Bird poop just wants to smear--LOL!
Anyways, Leah put up the mesh screen for me after that, so I am one of the only apartments who doesn't ever have to worry about swallow nests every year. They are always nesting someplace (especially love third floor)...diving and swooping...babies begging. Delightful little birds. Karma was just a tiny kitten when she first became an avid swallow watcher.
Just been puttering about. I did take the fern in the bathroom, soak it well, and then cut away all the dead parts underneath. Looks much happier now. :)
Dagan and Leah didn't make it over on Wednesday. They needed to stay home and do laundry and pack. Dagan had a heart/pacemaker checkup down in Minneapolis on Thursday. They are visiting friends and will be back on Sunday, so I am going either tonight or tomorrow morning to go check on Sammy and Annie. Do me some deck plant checking...some poop scooping...prepare a kibble banquet...and have me some cat chat. ;)
I just checked online...looks like we're expecting storms this afternoon and tonight but a sunny day tomorrow, so I guess I'll go in the morning. They're used to a weekend (two nights) on their own, so they'll be fine. Not that they might not have gotten into something they shouldn't--but you can practically stand over a cat and they can manage that right in front of you--LOL!
Have a great weekend!
Me...I am hoping to finish cleaning my desk and file cabinet--LOL! ;)
