> hey what's for dinner mom?: what the?

what the?

Hahhhahahaha The other night as one of my boys was sweeping up after dinner he said "ogghhhh MOM there is something totally gross under the heater and I AM NOT TOUCHING it" Busy with dinner cleanup and wrangling two boys into the evening routine by myself I processed and moved on.

Now we have a dog, who by all accounts is AMAZING excpet in her lust for shoes but other than that she's great, and two cats, and 30 chickens, gross things are NOT uncommon around here. It's called living on a farm, however small and humble, it is STILL a farm and gross stuff happens.

 Today I finally got to the gross thing
lovely no? but neither dead NOR rotting, a happy discovery!


only to discover it was a wad of beeswax.


Not gross and most likely brought  in by two Waldorf educated boys. HA! I laughed so hard I scared the dog who was sleeping soundly.

After I snapped the photo I looked out the window and relaized HOW lovely it is out there.





 Agatha is less than impressed but SHE NEEDED to go out and sometimes you get what you ask for.


I like to call this the "you've done this to me" look 


help


you there can you see me??

fine I'll wait


Sometimes when you look outside the reality of what has your attention you find a world of loveliness.






 Enjoy, I certainly did before I went back to banishing disgusting things.

  1. I love it! At first I thought it was a Werthers Candy! How funny. I love the expression on your cats face.

  2. Haha, I'm catching up on your blog. I knew exactly what it was when I saw it. I find those all over my house...ours all come from church. My kids love beeswax and creating creations during church. Lmao, just now my 14-yr-old walked up to me and showed me the cup she'd just made out of...dun dun dun...beeswax. It's filled with water. It's about 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch. Too funny.
