So now, along with all my other obsessions, I am officially a shadow box addict. I now look at little cardboard boxes like some people might look at a t-bone steak or diamond jewelry.
The DH and I went to Frederick, MD on Saturday night to wander around and shop a little. It was cold out, but no wind! My favorite kind of winter weather.
There were carolers, and lots of shoppers, and we discovered this sweet little bookstore called the Curious Iguana.
But wait! I can hear you asking about our cute kitten. How is she? Why, she is exactly like owning a little velociraptor. She is the most kinetic creature on the planet. She stalks me. She attacks without warning. She flies through the air on her way to ripping apart some unsuspecting Christmas ornament.
(She is also very adorable, especially when she is asleep.)
Here she is stalking her prey. The Panda Express bag. Poor bag, it doesn't realize how close to danger it is.
Even Sophie, who outweighs the kitten by 90 pounds is worried that she's the velociraptor kitten's next victim.
Oh, no! She has attacked! Poor Panda Express!
Sadly, Lyra the Velociraptor Kitten is victorious. Sophie the Gigantic Dog, is nowhere to be seen. We can only hope she escaped in time.
Here is a bag I attacked (thank you for introducing me to a new chocolate craving, Jim). If you feel like attacking a peanut butter cup, this is a good one. Justin's. I'm trying not to think about how good it was.
It is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas here. The tree is up, the lights are on, and what is left of the Christmas ornaments are hanging cheerily.
So far, the snowmen in their village have not incurred the wrath of Lyra the Velociraptor Kitten.
But their days are probably numbered.
Ho ho ho!
