House Sitting .....Again
Thursday morning I moved
up to my brothers house to
house/dog/bird/cat sit for
Thursday evening I had to run back
to the barn, it was my evening
to feed. On the way back to
Ray's house I stopped at Bonfire
for dinner. I love this place!
You pick out what you want in your
bowl, hand it over the the cooks
and it comes back all done
back to the house and
had for dinner last night.
Yesterday I got up and got ready
to head out. Beautiful sunny and warm
day, 62 degrees.
My cousin Kathy was coming to town
for the day so we arranged to meet up
near her hotel, which is also up
near Julia's Homestyle Bakery.
I have told you about the bakery before
owned by one of my best friends.
Julie, we met in 8th grade and 38 yrs ago
I was the maiden of honor in her and
Roger's wedding. I decided to just
pop in and say hi.
My cousin and her hubby met me
at the bakery. We did lunch and
then back to Ray's place till they
had to head out.
Evening time rolled in.
I fed the birds.
Speaking of feeding. I took this
Thursday evening when I fed at
the barn. The bigger black cat
To ease everyone's mind I started
working on getting homes for the critters.
Then the bad weather and snow
kicked in and my plans got nipped in
the bud. When I get back home from
staying at Ray's I will be getting in touch
with the Humane Soc. about taking the kittens.
I am always looking for ways to make
storage in my home. I really like this
I really like this idea also.
While looking at Pinterest for
ideas I found these also.

Now for the fun staying at my brothers..
He lives in the country so critters getting
in is not surprising but I think he needs
to have someone come out and do
My first night here I got up in the
middle of the night cause the dogs
wanted out. I realized that Lily had
not been to bed yet. I called and called
for her but apparently answering me would
have messed up her hunt.
I did however find her standing on
the buffet in the entryway and she
had a little bitty mouse hugging the
wall up above where she could not reach.
Then it feel. Lily jumped down, the dogs
went wild, the mouse ran around and
managed to lose the bunch in the living
I headed back to bed.
6:30 am I wake and look down
the hall and Lily is batting
a mouse around.
Well Dakota spotting what Lily is playing
with jumps in to go for the KILL.
Lily likes playing but Rat Terriers
were bred to hunt these critters in the barn.
Yep, he went for the kill.
I picked up that tiny mouse
by sweeping it into the dust pan.
I threw it outside.
I looked later, it was still there,
Last night, I shut the bedroom door
with 5 dogs, Lily and myself
in there. Lily had been up all night
the night before, it was not happening
It was a slow silent night.
Thanks for stopping in,
