Mysterious Thumping...

Every time I was on my computer I would hear it! The first time I heard it I thought it was the wind. It has been terribly windy here, so it made sense! But, the sound just didn't go away! Of course my husband thought I was hearing things, but finally I got him to investigate. It sounded as though it was in our fireplace. (Side note about our fireplace: we have not used it for years, it really needs to be checked out to see if it would be safe to burn in it.) So up on the roof he went to take a look into the chimney. There was the source of the noise! There was a duck in there! A very angry duck who was hissing at my husband!

All turned out well in the end. My hubby got out the hoe and carefully pulled the duck out, and she flew away unharmed. And the noise is gone! Time to put on a mesh grate on the top of the chimney!


Here is my latest little cards. I call them "mini thanks." They are perfect for writing a little note on then slipping them into your Etsy packages for your customers. Check them out!

Poor little duck. I bet he was glad you showed up to free him!

I've never seen an angry duck before. But then I've never seen a duck stuck in a fireplace either. That's funny!

Hey your cards are adorable :)
