We have caught him! In the middle of the night Meg woke me saying she heard rattling metal in the basement. I knew we had successfully caught the chipmunk that thought my art room was a good place to spend the winter. J took him to a local park this morning to release the bugger. Now I have to go and clean up--the chipmunk knocked a bunch of stuff off of shelves and fabric from the open cupboards. EEEeewww!

I went outside this afternoon and fiddled around with some watercolor paint. I really am no good but it took my mind off the chipmunk in my studio. Yes, that's right a chipmunk in and among my art stuff down in the basement. I have no idea how he got in there but I want him out! I used to like the little things but I have firmly changed my mind. Anyone who wants the thing can request a special delivery--tomorrow. We are going to try and live-catch him and release outside--hopefully that works....cause I don't want to share my space with the jumpy, smelly fellow.
