A Shiny New Year - and Some Garbage

I love the changing of the year - a fresh clean slate and an opportunity to celebrate the successes of the previous year and forget about the rest.  New years day we spent the morning playing with the ferrets and lounging upstairs. Then we moved downstairs to spend some time with piglet and pup and kitties. It was not a day for accomplishing much....love those days - they are too far and few between.

So far the theme of this year from a critter perspective has been garbage - I hope that is not a sign of how this year is going to go....  Winston has discovered garbage cans and has tipped two and spread garbage all over the downstairs. They have been relocated to places where he can't get to them - fun times.

Theo and Kai have decided that playing in the upstairs garbage is fun!  While its much less messy than when Winston does it - they don't tip the bin - they get messy and smelly rooting around in there - joy!

Geez - give me a break boys - I have enough messes to clean up without adding this to the mix.  Today will be a heavy chore day - lots to get done around here and the goal is to finish up today so I can relax over the weekend and on Monday before heading back to work on Tuesday.  We will see how far we get...

Fingers crossed for well behaved critters today...
