The Big Guy was out of town for the day so I decided to spend the morning making rice pudding and creating my Fusion card. The rice pudding recipe I use is needs to simmer a while with occasional stirring. So every 15 minutes I headed downstairs to stir. Who says crafting isn't an aerobic exercise?
On my third trip into the kitchen guess who is on the kitchen counter? That squirrel! In a 15 minute time period he had destroyed two window screens and was headed for some sweet corn on the counter. I yelled and he took off in a panic, ran across the counter, jumped onto my rice pudding pot, knocked the lid off then leaped to a side window. No exit there so off to the dining room where he played a tune running up and down the piano keys while I opened all the kitchen windows.
I chased him off the piano and he flew to the top of my drapes where we had a staring contest until I shook the drapes. He jumped down over the dining room table to the floor and headed back to the kitchen and in one more wild leap was over the counter and back out the window.
And did I mention that I was on the phone rescheduling a doctor's appointment as I entered the kitchen? The poor secretary heard all the shrieking and carrying on until at some point I hung up. When I finally called back another girl answered and started to laugh and said, "Oh are you the lady with the squirrel?" Why yes.....yes I am.....
