I am having a hard week over here at Skull Mansion. It all started Sunday morning. I called my mom while walking the dog, and a few minutes after I got home I heard a loud thunk, and smoke started pouring out of our new coffee pot we got from her for Christmas. I told her I had to go. Luckily it happened then and not while I was out walking. Joshua was still asleep, and who knows how bad it could have gotten if I hadn't unplugged it right away. Our house smelled so bad for hours.
Sunday night I was trying to cut some carrots smaller for roasting when I accidentally cut the very tip off my left index finger. It was literally just a small piece of skin, but it bled like a mofo and didn't feel very good either.
We got a new foster dog on Sunday afternoon. He is a sweet guy, but he has no idea how to be a family dog. He was terrified of people and not exactly house trained. He has gotten so much better over the week, but Monday morning he left me a present in the kitchen. I didn't realize it until several minutes later after I had stepped in it and spread it around part of the house. I thought Felix must have spilled something sticky, but it turned out to be much, much worse.
After he realized that he was allowed to chew on toys, he started hoarding them in his bed!
Here's the little guy all tuckered out.
He will eventually be available for adoption through Bruno the Companion, the awesome rescue that saved our Chunk from certain death.
In other horrible Monday news...
We have a little creek that goes through our neighborhood. I walk Chunk by it every day and have come to love seeing my muskrat friends doing their muskrat business in the creek. While walking the dog, I saw a crow eating one of them! The horror!
Also one of my toes has been hurting, and it turns out I have an infection. I have no idea where it came from as I have not injured my toe recently. I'm assuming the universe is making my last month of being 29 a pain in the ass so I'll be really excited about turning 30 in a few weeks. Shit's gotta get better soon.
I spent the week sewing up a new batch of phone wallets to round out my available stock to offer to shops that carry Hot Butter, and next week I'll be trading out wallets at Curating the Cool in Lafayette, CO. I also went fabric shopping. I got some pretty stuff at the new craft store in Lafayette, The Crafted Life. And after I got my toe checked in Boulder, I limped my way over to Fabricate Boulder to pet their quilting cotton. Their selection is awesome right now, for the record!
Oh my glob, those kitties!
So new wallets are coming! It is also the last day to get 30% off in my shop with coupon code LEAP30.
Alright folks, please have an awesome weekend. I'm not even aiming for awesome over here, just crossing my fingers for no more personal bodily harm or ailments. And maybe not having to clean up too many dog accidents.
