Well it has been 1 month in our new home..We are still settling in since both of us still work a lot, but peace is easily achieved. In the past month, Dandelion has been to the doctor for a sprained ankle and Nickel the mouse was rushed in with a case of ringworm. I have been painting again, my muses are easily found. My mouse/hedgehog/hamster/playroom is almost complete. Insulated windows and warming blankets are installed, I just need to set up the play-pen barriers. The guinea pigs reside in the living room, as they always have, and the rats...are still in the bedroom, I need rats in my bed periodically. Everyone is doing just fine...save one...
Yesterday, as Jeremy was coming home from work, in the middle of a parking lot, on a hot day, with nothing else around...lay a baby (eyes still sealed shut) field mouse.
Oh my word, It is as if the great spirit placed this baby from heaven upon the asphalt with a message to us. I am at odds with myself..I have the underlying guilt of domesticating this wild beauty, but then again i cannot snuff fate. He is munching down formula and regaining strength, he appears to be approaching the flea stage soon, and his eyes are opening slowly..he is in strict quarantine away from everyone else, with me and Jeremy waking up every 3 hours to feed him...sigh...So anyway..that has been my month, what a time.
