Oh dear. A trip to Scrapbook Oasis in Irvine. A few more things got added to the travel book. Like larger rings.

The variety of scrapbook paper is staggering. Many bad words were uttered under my breath. Each paper more fabulous than the next. I may have let out a few high pitched shrieks.
I tried to resist the little calendar, but alas, I could not. Cute stacks of cuteness everywhere I looked. It was overwhelming.
Meanwhile, new geraniums unfold in the bathtub out back.
The bird whisperer is up to his usual high jinx. In his soft warm jaws he’s carried 2 large birds, 1 BIG lizard, an orange & black snake, and a tiny baby squirrel in the house in the last week. I tried to convey to him the depths of my despair upon seeing the stunned and frightened little creatures, but he plugged his ears with his paws. The Moss Cottage catch and release program is in full swing.
Note to self: If the lizard you are taking outside bites you DO NOT scream obscenities and drop it. A. the bite doesn’t hurt at all B. you will have to crawl back under the chest of drawers to get him again. This will be v.v. annoying. Especially if he climbs up the back of the dresser, slips in through the crack in back, and slithers through your underpants.
I felt sorriest for the poor baby squirrel D.O.A. I’d never seen one before. It was very interesting to examine close up. Wyatt remains on house arrest until his fine retrieving instincts lessen.
