Today was supposed to be my day of leisure after running a few errands. AHH HA! I came back home after running my errands, made myself some lunch and settled into my studio. Joyfully eating lunch and watching Chester nibbling on his just outside my window, when he climbed down and into my pot of primroses. Pretty soon dirt was flying everywhere. The little devil was hiding his stash again. He had "out squirreled" me again and found a way around the screening I had put down. So I flew out the front door to have a few words with the little fellow. Teddy came too. I heard the dreaded noise of the front door closing. OH NO!!!! OH YES I was locked out of my house. I swear Chester was laughing. Yes he was. I proceeded to try every door (8) but no luck. I stopped by my studio window to look longingly at my now cold lunch. Then I was getting a ladder to try climbing to the second story balcony. This is the lady who doesn't do heights. Thought better of it. Did a few jumping jacks (quit laughing) to stay warm. Sure pays to live in the middle of no where. Thought about hiking to the neighbors down the road. But I didn't have a leash for the Ted and He would have gone wild. So I sat on the front steps, starving, cold and thinking about stealing some of Chester's nuts when I had a light bulb moment. Back when my son was in high school ( he is now in his 30's) I hide a key in the woods, just in case he got locked out. So I hiked into the woods and would you believe the key was still there in a little plastic bag. So that was my day of leisure.
On a brighter note Lelia's gift of Sunday at Tiffany's arrived in the mail. Can't wait to read it. This was from OWOH. She has a very interesting blog that you all would enjoy. Thanks Lelia, I certainly will enjoy this book. After my NAP!!!!!!
