We're finding our rhythm, Fiona and I. Ordinarily we don't have a car, so we just kick it at home like we did today. Today I ironed and hung new (store bought) curtains, caught up on all my laundry, did a bit of ironing, sewed a skirt, cleaned my living room blinds and baseboards and windows. Then we had Little Caesars slutty pizza for dinner because I had done enough for the day. Fish tacos I was going to make- we'll see you tomorrow night.
Fiona did her typical pirate face once, but then refrained. I think it may be because I had the screen turned around so she could see herself and she got a glimpse of what she really looked like.
Yesterday as we walked home from the bus stop, we were followed by a baby squirrel! It was pretty freakin' cute. One of the neighborhood boys had told us about 'Alvin Jr', and lo and behold, there he was. He scampered after us the whole way, about 2 blocks. Fiona was delighted, and while I was as well, I was hesitant to let her touch it. He was obviously after food (as the neighborhood kids have been feeding hinm peanut butter to domesticate him), but I didn't know that he was ready for Fiona's delighted screeching and lurching. You never know what a cornered squirrel is capable of. Baby or not.

It was hard to get a decent picture of it since I was trying to make sure Fiona didn't get too close as she had absolutely no fear. He was really quite tiny and adorable, though brazen. After we came inside he sat on our porch and was actually trying to claw his way through the glass door.He was scratching and scratching away, then climbing the brick wall outside the door. I threw him some cold scrambled eggs from breakfast, but I guess his diet of peanut butter has spoiled him against my peasant food.
So with Bella apparently loving school and everything that goes with it, I am enjoying my days at home with Fiona. She's young enough to be happy playing along side me while I do my housework and sometimes sewing, all with a lurid Lifetime movie to keep me company. She doesn't know what's going on and is happy to have free reign of Bella's toys with no competition for my attention.
