Meet Nimue The Bathroom Cat

This is Nimue the Bathroom Cat, formerly known as "That Cat You Never Talk About". He didn't start life as a Bathroom Cat, but we ended up confining him to the restroom because he started peeing everywhere in the entire house (precipitating the entire kitchen renovation).

Once we confined him to the bathroom, he more or less stopped peeing on everything. Not only that but he actually LIKES living in the bathroom. How do we know, you ask?

Because one night last weekend we accidentally left the bathroom door open all night. In the morning we worried that he would be elsewhere in the house, peeing on the new carpet or something. Nope. He was still in the bathroom after an entire night of potential freedom.

So see? He likes it there. He's a genuine Bathroom Cat.

Stay tuned next time when Nimue the Bathroom Cat makes the treacherous journey from basket in the closet to under the bathroom counter!

Not So Wordless Not Even Wednesday - Washing Up

Yet again, I didn't manage wordless. I didn't even manage Wednesday. But that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Washing out the coffee pot:

For some reason I thought by the time this kid was age four I'd be done saying things like, "Do NOT lick the mirror!"

I'm not.

No, the only difference between now and when she was one or two is that now I get answers like, "But spit will make it nice and shiny!"

On the Never-Ending Search for Homemade Nutella

Hello people! Blogger tells me there are still some of you here even though I haven't posted in forever and a half.

We did get my boy off to college. He's been there two weeks and we've heard from him more in that time than the previous two years put together.

This is right before he left:

Meanwhile the Head of Demolition started a new year of preschool:

She went with clothes on and a clean face though.

My project lately has been trying to figure out homemade Nutella. Because they served it to the kid at day camp and she loved it. But I'm pretty sure that if you read the ingredients of Nutella, your eyes pop out of your head and you get heart disease and cancer simultaneously.

And that's why people who eat serious amounts of Nutella never read the ingredients list. Hopefully.

I tried this recipe and this recipe. And my problem is, it congeals both ways and turns into more of a butter than a dip. And then the kid claims it's "too sweet", which I think is her way of saying the texture is wrong. So I'm still working on a  good recipe.

Here's a picture of the kid playing a board game. All of these pictures have been on Facebook before, so apologies if you're seeing them twice.

That's about it from around here - happy long weekend everyone!
