Abandoned slippers! Is it another mystery? Let’s take a sniff to see who these might belong to. Hmm…

I declare these slippers smell like… feets! I better make one hundred percent sure.

Mmmm… feets smell, a hint of vegetal, loamy-mix clay and a robust, cedary piquant. So heady, so addictive. A girl could get used to this if she weren’t careful!

01/28/2015 – Mysteries Abound!

We have two mysteries on our hands today. The first, may be a glitch or maybe not. Our good friends, da Tabbies o Trout Towne alerted us to our weather to come. Sure, the rest of the country is buried in storms and snow. No reason why here in the Pacific Northwest, we shouldn’t be too.

Yesterday, according to our Weather by the Hour app, today is going to be a bit of a chilly one for us. We haven’t stepped out to check just yet, and frankly, we’re not sure we want to! Thanks for the head’s up, Tabbies o’TT. Looks like we’re gonna have to break out the hot toddies and pull on another layer of flannel!

The second mystery is best described by our own Olivia, who usually loves a mystery. This one, however, has her flummoxed.

Sorry if I look annoyed. I’m tracking a mystery that’s been bothering me since… well, it’s been a long time. Before yesterday even! Let me explain and then maybe you can figure it out.

Okay, here’s the scenario: This ball, this orange plastic ball is possessed, or something! It follows me sometimes. That’s creepy, even more creepy than when Patrol Sergeant Zuzu follows me around looking to chew me out for some infraction. This is no innocent orange ball, I’m here to tell you!

So here I am, sitting in my favorite spot in the entryway, where I can see everything there is to see, when suddenly…

… I move about a foot forward and this orange orb is suddenly over my shoulder. Since this has happened before, I cleverly ignore it initially…

… and that’s when it moves! I swear, it rolled toward me. It was very slow to do so but it did! How can you tell it moved?

You can tell by looking at the sunlight shining through the holes. See? It’s a mystery!
