And the list when on! Everything was exciting! I even got a swat to hold still until they were done with all their messages!

I knew I’d be inspected when I came in from working in the garden for several hours—cutting the lawn, trimming branches, clearing foliage away from my garden beds, digging and transplanting. Believe it of not, those are my feet, surprisingly difficult to draw from that angle, and from the left Giuseppe, Sunshine and Mimi, and Bean behind me, ears, faces and whiskers all in full sniff mode. Considering all the things that walk, hop, slither, flutter, crawl and otherwise inhabit my garden, I’m not at all surprised when I’m forced to stop and be inspected when I come in after spending time out there. Surprisingly, Mimi is not inspected when she comes in, but I guess the kids know better. I’m glad I provided them with some enlightening entertainment after a very dull day when I just would not come in and pay attention to them!
