Dirty Mirrors

This is my bathroom mirror…..

Maybe you can see it better if we are up close and personal…..

See how dirty it is?  Well, it is impossible to keep this mirror clean at my house.  And this is why….

Or maybe this explains it better…..

But maybe you need to see it in action……

Or even up close and personal…..

See how he slurps the water over the side of the cup?  See the tiny water droplets on the side of the cup?  Well they end up all over the mirror too.  And thus the dirty mirror.  (Side note – I love how you can see the ripples in the water in this picture!  The only thing that would make it better is to see a little cat tongue <grin>)

Boo is my buddy.  He is a very likable, easy-going cat.  Even if you don’t like cats, you might like Boo.  He makes you like him.  If you came to visit me, he would greet you at the door.  And rub cat fur all over your legs.  And entertain you while you were here.  Or he might just sleep away your visit.  He’s very cute when he’s sleeping.  See?

And he doesn’t get in trouble (see above dirty mirrors) when he’s sleeping.  Isn’t he cute? Unless you’re highly allergic and even a picture of a cat makes you sneeze  — aah….aaaahhhh…. aaaaaaahhhhh……CHOO!

But I’m not really sleeping, Mom.  And could you stop flashing that flash at me, please?  Cats are sneaky that way.  You might think they are sleeping when they really know your every move. 

Boo has other drinking cups too…..

Like this one in the window near the kitchen sink.  Boo likes to jump up there and get a drink and watch me as I cook….. or rinse dishes.  Thank goodness there is not a mirror nearby!  But his preferred method of drinking is like this…..

There’s a problem with this way of drinking.  It requires a human (namely, me) to turn the water on and off for you!  I’m still working on teaching him how to do that.  But he’s really not paying attention.  He prefers me to do it for him.  And quite frankly, he doesn’t care at all whether I ever turn it off.  Water bills are irrelevant to a cat.  (Another pic where it would be really cool to have a cat tongue, eh?  But I LOVE the way the water and Boo’s whiskers turned out!)

This is the table in my sewing room where my sewing machine is supposed to be…..

If I had Photoshop, I’d put an arrow in the picture to show you where the machine normally goes.  (Alas, I didn’t win PW’s giveaway yesterday…..sigh….)  This table is also the reason that the bathroom mirror will remain dirty.  You see, when I came home from retreat last week, all my stuff from retreat got plopped down here and one week later it’s still there!  And I need to sew!!!  But if you come by to see me tomorrow and it still looks like this, I’m going to say it is because I’ve been cleaning mirrors…….and doing laundry…… and vacuuming and even shampooing spots in my carpet.  And blogging…….. mostly blogging.  (Which requires taking pictures all day long too <grin>)  Just don’t ask to use the bathroom so you can check the mirror……

Excuses…..I’ve got a million of ’em!

    HEY, that’s the way Fangster drinks, out of little cups all over the house. And he has one, too, by my bathroom sink but does NOT dirty the mirror. He’s very tidy in that way (but NOT other ways! LOL). He does not, however, drink out of a running faucet which is a good thing!! UH OH, I think this blogging thing is going to SEVERELY impact your quilting.
