"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

Some mornings...

Some mornings just aren't as you planned.
I was going to share some fish party pics.
But we live like with animals.

I came down stairs to bird feathers  everywhere.
(thank god no juicy bits found. yet.)

Walked in kitchen to find a precious egg from three remaining hens knocked off counter.
s p l a t 

Over to coffee maker (must.have.the.coffee.before reality.cleaning)
stepped over a black glob of ants.
very nice.
Jack cuts up his own apples into funny chunks w/a plastic knife.
One ended up under counter.
Tho seems to be making it's way across the floor.

Maybe those industrious ants could sweep n mop on their way out?

I'm bettin y'all take back any mention of wanting to come visit me here!

Oh yeah, here's a token fish pic.
I want to float away.
I hear at least hurricane Leslie was in the tropics.

With all the animals around, you don't have a dog on Floor Duty? A serious oversight! I hardly ever have to bend over in the kitchen. :)

Ha, busted! You're so right Alison... Especially after I DID find some "juicy bits." ;-P Olivia "helped" with all that but said no to the feathers. Thank God we have a central vac system. You wouldn't believe the things I suck up. Like moving globs of ants... :-)

Still laughing at this one!

Some days just start out that way!
I've learned this summer, never to step into the garage or on the back porch without shoes. The kitties have become quite the hunters...some are "dinners" are bigger than they are!
Guess I know what you'll be doing today...sorry!

When I come I will sweep if you make coffee. :)

You crack me up! I'm still reeling from your post about the "murder" and now this...keep them coming.

Oh, my! Sounds like my adventures at 4am this morning with a pup who had a upset stomach..all over her dog-bed. I will leave it at that! Then Brutus decided to shred a roll of TP that I left on the bathroom counter...he drug the roll through the house. Like he TP'd the living room! Then when I went to feed the outdoor cats, I walked out the kitchen door right into a HUGE Orb Weaver spider web..and the dang thing jumped on my head.
Oh, what a way to start the day!

We can just visit each others
homes LOL! We are used to chaos :))
xo, misha
