I must interrupt Friday Food again because we have a new member of the household that I'd like to introduce you to!!!!
She's a precious little love bug, isn't she?
She was a runaway - found on the streets. Seems she had gotten herself into an abusive relationship (you know how it goes when you're on the road), and needed some help.
And here she lives!
Safe, sound, and well-inspected ...
Cricket the cat was huhlarious!
Totally hopping around every time Josephine would pop her head and start moving.
Josephine is different than any turtle I've ever met. She's very friendly and tame.
She'll crawl right up to you and stick her precious little neck out and peer right up at you.
She loves her swimming pool.
Apparently, three-toed Texas Box Turtles like water a bit more than most box turtles.
She plunged right in and hung out there for quite sometime.
Her little butt and back legs were sticking out in the air whilst her front half was submerged.
Did I mention she's so cuuuuutttteeeee?
Did you see she has ORANGE on her?
I wasn't expecting to come home from a playdate with a turtle so her habitat is a bit, oh, wabi-sabi.
Actually it's just kinda ugly, but I'm gonna work on it.
She had a great time exploring it all while I sat and watched, and watched, and watched.
She slept in her cozy little house last night.
She had some fresh chard from the garden this morning, went for a swim, and then went back home.
I guess she's doing some decorating.
Maybe waiting for the cable guy.
Josephine + Me = Love
Thanks to Heather and Austin for letting us re-home her.
