I'm Moving...My House is Possessed

It's haunted.
I am so outta here.

What? Proof?
You want proof?
How is this for proof...there is a stuffed monkey, which is obviously possessed, moving around my house.

The Possessed Monkey

See? I came upon him, just sitting like this, on the kitchen floor. He hadn't time to arrange himself in an innocuous position before I stepped into the kitchen so he just sat down and tried to look harmless.

I am too wise for that.

I know this innocent looking monkey is actually an evil demon in need of exorcism. 

Sam? Dean? Where are you when I need you?

No, no way!

Molly could NOT have left said monkey on the floor.

I tell you!

Molly knew the evil nature of this creature before I ever caught it sitting-down-all-innocent-looking and chewed off it's devil-spawned tail in an effort to hobble it's fiendish presence. We NEVER found that tail ~ so either Molly swallowed it or it evaporated into a puff of smoke once disconnected from it's malevolent host.

Molly is the darnedest toy-eating dog I've ever seen! She doesn't just chew them UP - she EATS them. Poor Dash awoke to find Molly vomiting up squeaky toy pieces ON HIM. Ewww! Only a couple days after the above photo was taken, the cute yellow sheepie was rescued into the trash can before it made it's way to Molly's tummy. The darn dog has eaten her way through BASKETS full of toys. We've taken to only buying those toys labeled for serious chewers!

I must go.

After I pick up some packing boxes, I need to run by the pet shop.
For some reason all of Molly's toys have disappeared.

Except one very creepy monkey.

July ORT Report

I do apologize for the boring blog this year. When I post the TUSAL each month, I promise myself I'm going to make a new post in a couple of days...and it never happens. I have even done some really cool things, taken neat trips, accomplished incredible feats and even had cross stitch finishes ~ and not shared a single one of them! I shall endeavor to catch you up when my blogging mojo returns. I also know I have winners of various giveaways still to be announced ~ how sad is that? *blush*

For now, you are here to see ORTs, correct? I'm STILL on that patriotic kick so my threads are still mostly red, white and blue. There is a tiny bit of tan and golden brown mixed in this time:

I'm working on Bent Creek's Wave. I adore these alphabet word samplers! Much fun. This one is going quickly when I get time to stitch. I hope no one gets tired of my "kick" this year. I have several patriotic themed projects kitted up ~ fair warning!

Now let's see your ORTs! TUSALers leave a comment on this post with the address to your July update. If I decide to host a giveaway at the end of the year you will receive an extra entry! Are you wondering what the heck a TUSAL is? Click here for info!
