This, and That, and Some More

Jerri was making pumpkin bread the other morning and Beans walked into the kitchen and said,

"Ok Ma'am, you're safe now. I locked the tiger in the cage."

Jerri's mixing, and thinking, Tiger? Cage?

"Wait a minute Beans, where's the tiger"?

She follows Beans back down the hall and sees the bathroom door is closed, opens it, and the cat runs out. Ned-Thomas was a happy tiger to be able to escape.

She told me today that every time Ned-Thomas sees Beans coming, he runs to the door to be let outside. I reckon it's safer. :-)

I'm a serious coffee drinker and try not to waste a drop of tasty caffeine goodness, so yesterday I'd gotten busy and the cup I had been sipping on had gotten cool. It was about half a cup so I was going to zap it a few seconds in the microwave and finish it up before washing the supper dishes. I've been in one of my fumble-fingered modes this week so that half cup of coffee wiggled it's way right out of my hand and went crashing to the floor.

It was maybe 4 ozs of coffee, so how in the heck did that little bit of coffee make such a mess? I cleaned coffee from the microwave door, the dishwasher door, under the dishwasher, several square feet of floor, the cabinet doors, my feet, the rug, and I'm still finding coffee splashes.

I woke up tired this morning so I think I'm going to go take a nap. Y'all have a great Tuesday!

Oh, how lovely the thought of a nap! I vote "Yes!"

I hope you had better luck than I did at a nap!! That Beans just kills me with the stuff she comes up with. Maybe she's gonna join the circus and be a lion or tiger tamer. Did she name that cat? That's so cute!!

Don't you know when you spill 1/4 cup of coffee, it turns into 2 cups??? Uh huh...it's happened to me a few times! lol I hate it the most when I spill it on my living room rug which is a pale peach. You'd think I'd learn but nooooo!!!!

That's a cute story about Beans and the "tiger"! lol No wonder the poor cat runs when he sees her! hehe xoxo
