I'm home. Had a great time. Now, I guess I'm ready to buckle down and get back to work.
Misty, moist, foggy morning here. If I wasn't so tired from traveling I would have grabbed Murphy and my camera and headed out for pictures.
I have to say I love the smell of fall. I know it's probably just decomposing leaves but it has a unique smell. Then again I love the smell of woodsmoke and burning leaves and chocolate.
Murphy and Louie have been glued to me since we got home. They really don't like pack members going off some where without them. Oh, here's a funny story............ before I left and was racing around packing and making lists I was warm so I opened the Tangerine room window, a crack. Louie jumped up on the window sill. About an hour later I opened the front door to let Murphy out. It was night time and as I stepped out the door I could see bright eyes at the edge of the woods. I knew Murphy would start barking and go for whatever animal it was so I started to coax him in. No go, he trotted off the porch but no barking. I'm thinking, shoot, it's a raccoon and he's going to get in a fight and bit and I'll have to take him to the vet's........... you know all that stuff that runs through your head. But, still no barking from Murphy.
My eyes have adjusted to the dark and I see what looks like a big cat. Still, why isn't Murphy barking at a strange cat...........hmmmm........cat looks orange...............SHOOT, that's LOUIE!!!!!!!!!
WHAT ARE YOU DOING OUTDOORS???????
I leave the front door open, try to get him to come back inside. Just what I need the night before we take off, a lost cat. Louie goes under the deck. Not a good idea when a Traditionally Built Mama starts stomping on the deck. He pops out, Murphy runs next to him and then both of them run in the house. Whew.
From now on I'll REMEMBER that I took the screens out of the windows and not to open the window. Apparently, he can push against it opened, even a crack and make it wide enough to squeeze through. Silly cat.
Ok, off to start on my TO DO list. Hope you all have been having a creative time. I'll be right over to see your blogs.
