Finding Tessie...

"I don't have to go and you can't make me!"

I grabbed Tessie by the scruff of the neck and carried her back to her new location... She threatened to zap back to the bedroom, house and all.  Why didn't I think of that instead of having Walter and Seth do it yesterday?

Anyway, I threatened her with no cookies for a week and she caved. Then she went roaming around and ended up in the closet... It is a bigger mess now that we moved the house.

She was looking for something.

So was I.  I misplaced this bracelet about a month ago.  It's my all time favorite and I was worried that I might have lost it somewhere.

I did the beading and then added the clasps from an early 1900's watch chain that I had lying around.  Broken chain. Good clasp.

It was in a bead tray that I had been working in.

Kota agreed to guard it until I get bored with cleaning. 
I found out why Tessie was raiding the closet.  The bedroom and the closet are as if a hurricane has gone through.

I looked in the workroom and there she was.  Back in the chair.  This time in disguise.  I forgot that I made her this cloak when I first installed the top "wallpaper" in the potion room.

She seems to think that nobody can see her in it.  As long as she stays in the chair and in the potion room... And she must stay silent at all costs.

Hey! I'm going along with it.  It will keep her quite for a long time.  If I don't slip up, she will sit there for the rest of the morning... It is inevitable that she will get hungry around noon.  Then she will come out for lunch.  I will ask her, "Where were you all morning?".

With any luck, I will be believable and she will go back to hiding as soon as she eats... I get a lot more done when she is in invisible mode. 

Back to the workroom. 

See you tomorrow.

Never a boring moment in the Rice household with Tessie around. I love how you finished the top of the house and the secret room. I know I saw it all going up but I had forgotten how cute it was!

Hello Casey,
This can be your big break! I hope the silence will last a while.
Big hug
