Recently, I discovered a couple of robomaids in a closet that my mother had gotten me. I had forgotten all about having them. I remember wondering if those things really worked, so I pulled them out and thought it couldn't hurt to give them a try before putting up the Christmas tree. After charging one up, we let it go on our hardwood floors in the living room.
I wondered how long it would take our two cats, Bambi and Matty, to discover little Ms. Robomaid. Bambi was perched high up in a favorite spot on the half wall of the loft that looks down on the living room. She spotted it pretty quickly and watched it for awhile from there...but not for long. She couldn't stand it...she had to come on down and check it out!
Matty, always the very cautious one and scared of any noise, was keeping her distance. She figured out that she was safe up here on the step-up into the kitchen, so she stayed there peering around corners, watching carefully and cautiously from the kitchen.
Bambi was more determined to "get the best" of Robomaid. She followed it around bravely, until it made a turn around, then she was sliding around on the wood floors because she couldn't get away fast enough.
I'm sure we had plenty we could have been doing this particular evening, but it was very entertaining to watch. Besides, I figure, it gave our floors a good cleaning (it did work), and our kitties some exercise. And you know, I guess we're just easily amused!
And just in time for Christmas, came goodies in the mail from Jo-Anne's Christmas ornament swap. I received the cutest framed stitchery and the painted snowflake from Gail. I love both of them! It was so fun knowing she made these especially for my home. And they both have found the perfect spot in our Christmas decor (which I will show you in another post).
And from Jo-Anne's Etsy shop, came the sign I ordered from her. I love these words and knew when I saw it that I wanted it for my kitchen.
The sign now has found it's permanent spot on the wall in my kitchen. If you check back, I'll show you along with the rest of the kitchen Christmas pictures.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit. I hope you all have a great Thursday! :)
