I haven't been blogging here for a while--I've been blogging with my students elsewhere--but I think it's time to get back at it.
I'm at the computer early this morning to make a little thank-you card for my friend Katharine. She brought me some beautiful empty Kleenex boxes.
One day at ballet, I saw a Kleenex box in the trash. I took it out.
"I wonder why someone's throwing away a perfectly good rat house," I said. Katharine thought that was funny, and we talked about how our ratties love Kleenex box houses. Chewable, cosy, disposable (when they get too chewed up).
So now she's been bringing me the family's boxes! Our ratties are very happy!
