For March moley journal I did a spread on the theme of Art Nouveau; William Morris style for redplantlady. Very not my style.
Last week we went to the city and the kid wanted to look at the water when we were passing a bridge over the river. When he was looking, he said, mommy cat. And I was like, no there's no cat. He insisted there was a cat so I looked over the bridge and there was this huge rat like animal just hanging around on the grass area and then took a swim. I knew it wasn't a rat or an otter but I couldn't remember how it's called. The closest I could come to was muskrat but it wasn't that either.
Then we went to visit my great aunt. I'm pretty sure every family has a person that knows an answer to any question you have (and an interesting story to go along with it) no matter how strange it is. I knew this aunt would know what kind of animal it was and even before I could show her the video I took of it, she already had an answer for me (and a story to go along with it). It was nutria. There, mystery solved, just like that.
Linking to Paint Party Friday.
