Well, Well, Well...The Cat Finally Did It

Well, as the title says, the cat finally did it!
What did the cat, Lily, do??
She caught the mouse!!!!

Yes, Elves, Dwarves, Hobbits, Ninja and Other People, our 'borrowed' cat caught the mouse that has been terrorizing our house for the last few months.

A few months ago, our dad saw this mouse in the storage room in our house. He attempted to kill it but the mouse is part ninja because it climbed along the stucco walls, and disappeared. Eldra saw the same mouse around 3 months ago, and it scared the living mustard out of the both of us by crawling around in our room. It also was crawling around the edges of our kitchen. Very unhygienic. That was the last straw!!
My dad got some traps to get rid of the mouse, but we only caught 2 baby mice and not the 'big daddy' mouse. The big mouse seemed to be too smart, for the peanut butter was eaten from the closed traps. So we acquired an old cat from our best friends while they were on vacation and have had here even since.
She is a really lazy cat, and she doesn't like to be held, but she finally earned her stay.

But with the recent information, given to me by Goose, she has now puked up the mouse head which she had previously eaten. YUCK >_<

Yup. She's an old cat.

Sorry if this upset your stomach (it upset mine)

Concerts, Artwork, and School

Hello fellow Elves, Dwarves, Hobbits, Ninja, and Other People. I hail to you from the land of the...well it would originally be something like Catan, but I'm not that epic. So I hail to you from sunny Canada. Or not so sunny as it is cloudy outside.

I have just spazzed to my hearts content because I learned that my family and I are going to a concert in late September. The concert is called MapleNoise 'cuz it is a Canadian tour only. I AM TOTALLY EXCITED!!!! There aren't many 'Canadian Only' tours that happen, so this makes this a really special tour.
But it's funny how this tour got started. Fans of Manafest kept telling Chris (Manafest) that his friend, who had sung in some of Mana's hits, HAD to come out and perform alongside him. Chris heard the cries of the fans and organized it so his friend could come on stage.
Well, that "friend" wasn't just some singer. It is Trevor McNevan of the band Thousand Foot Krutch, and FM Static. So since Trevor is pretty busy with his own two bands he never had enough time (not to mention vocal strength) to come on stage and perform his own band, and then Manafest's. But this time the people were heard and they decided to do it. But since they are both Canadian (and friends since way back) they made it a Canadian tour only, to which most American fans are most displeased. But I'm not trying to gloat this over you, I'm just REALLY excited.

And that leads me to the second topic. Artwork.
I have been up to my neck in artwork projects!! This past May, I entered into this huge art gallery-thingy (I can't give the real name otherwise it would give away my real home). Well, I entered in May, and had June, July and all of August to get my artwork completed for this September gallery, but I kind of left it till August to complete them all. My bad.
So I have to submit 10 pieces of art and display them over 2 days in September, in which I can sell them, get commissions, or just display them. I am excited for that, but I STILL have 3 pieces to complete, even though one is a theme piece that won't be at the art thingy, but will be displayed for a month at a ANOTHER gallery. Even though it is connected to this art thingy. Am I making any sense??!! If not than try the best you can ;)

And the third and final topic...School. We all love it, need it, but hate it (not literal; school is good)
But if you don't know what 'you' are doing for school it can be a real bummer. I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to a Christian school just down the road, or if I should stay homeschooled, or if I should do Online School with some classes in school. I really don't know, and I really don't know why I'm telling you guys this, but ok...

Anyhoo, this is a really random post because it is spur-of-the-moment, but I haven't blogged in a long while and I needed to do one. Thanks for reading this blabbah post.

Ah, and I see some of the readers have voted on my pole (yes, you think I never check them, but I do...)
And the results are...

If you could be an animal, what would you be?
Platapus: 1     
Manatee: 2       
Vinagroon: 1         
Stork!: 3   
Sloth: 3  
I have no idea what any of these animals are: 2 

So the it is tie for a Stork!, and a Sloth. And that would probably be because nobody really likes the other ones. Hey, I would want to be a Manatee or Platapus...just saying ;)
