Things that make you go Hmmm???? and SWEET!!!!

Some times things are tougher, and it is just so great when nice things happen that just balance it all out.

Here are the nice things of the day...there are a bunch which is simply fantastic.

When I got to work today, the first person I saw was a co-worker on mat. leave and her baby!!!!

Then I sat at my desk and there was a cd of some music that a woman at work had burned for me!!!

Then there was a delicious pastry that a woman had brought was Korean and looked like a trilobite and tasted like heaven. I took a photo but can't download sorry.

At lunch another co-worker went out in the near interminable rain we're having around here and personally carried some sushi back for me....mmmmmm

OH! and another mystery from the house-sitter chronicals. I got up this morning and the cat was doing her usual rub rub around my ankles in the kitchen where we feed her, but her food???? I couldn't find it.

I looked around and the cat-proof bag it was stored in was neatly slit down the middle and the food was dumped out in a pile on the floor. There was considerably less.

Hmmmm. I scooped it up, fed the cat, bagged it and put it in a cupboard.

I headed downstairs for the laundry and there was poop on the stairs (which I left till this evening after dinner, I just didn't have time to pick it up). The cat NEVER poops on the floor, it has a cat flap that is always open and a litter box.


We decided that she must have brought a friend home last night. A squirrel or raccoon would have been MUCH more destructive.

Then this evening a beagle we had never seen before appeared in the kitchen. Granted all the doors and windows were open, but still.....

I wonder how long the dog had been here?

Mysteries abound these days.

It's a good thing you had such great things happen during the day before coming across your beagle guest.
Your house sitting is turning into a 24 hour job - and (a bit?) of a headache.

Perhaps the cat is a teenager too... Not sure you can ground the cat for inviting friends over without asking for permission first :D

elPadawan, teenagers keeps it lively.
