Outer Space

Have you heard that they were able to grow a flower in space? After looking for a link to better explain my statement, it would appear to not be the first ever grown in space.
I still think it is pretty cool.
So much so, it inspired me to try watercolour paints for the first time in decades.

I'm not totally happy with the final result, but it will do as a first try. I just need more practice.

I have also been trying to draw more frequently. It would seem my fingers have forgotten how to hold a pencil.

The shadow belongs to my supervisor, Napoleon.

To get ready for the premiere of X-Files, I have been cross stitching while binge watching the previous seasons.

This is the easier choice to make as it hurt to breath as you step outside during this week.

Stay warm everyone!

The Hunt Begins

After a mani-pedi
We have a squatter in our midst.
He (or she, I respect their privacy) is a clever little thing.
He managed to climb up to the top shelf in our pantry and liberate a graham cracker.

He didn't even eat a hole in the box. He managed to climb inside, drag it out and knock to the floor.
We only found it because he was unable to push it through the little hole in the back of the pantry.

Reno is very excited about the hunt.
He has been unwavering in his guard post just outside the pantry doors.
We do not want a repeat of last year's adventure with his urinary infection so we are keeping a close eye on him to make sure he does not open those doors.
Just to be on the safe side, we have trimmed his nails/weapons of destruction.

I don't like this one bit.

Do you see what he is doing? Are you allowing this?

Now how will I catch that mousy?
