You know that embarrassing moment when you notice you have been walking around with a bit of toilet paper stuck to the bottom of your shoe?
Sometimes that happens to houses too.
Actually, this bit of bonus toilet paper came to us courtesy of the little birds that are building a nest in our rain gutter. They come back every year and honestly I don't mind sharing my house with them, but if they are going to continue bringing stuff like this into my house, I just may have to lay down the law.
(FYI, we did retrieve -- carefully and in a way that involved disposable gloves -- and dispose of this little piece of nastiness so we're pretending everything is ok now. Still, who knows what else they have in there. Ugh.)
