A little help from Adrill

Wooo Pups, Girl Girl, and Wilber!

Do you remember my favorite handsome red man Zim talking about his adrill? Well guess what? It appeared here in my house today.

See, in our hallway downstairs, the light fixture stopped working. I guess it had a good life since it has been in our house since our house was built in 1986. Well, mom had picked out the one she wanted from Lowe's. And just the other day, she received a $10 off card in the mail if you spend $25. BONUS! So, off go the parents to Lowe's and returned with a new light fixture. For the area, mom did not need anything huge, nor anything that puts out immense light. Here I am helping Dad remove it from the wrapping....

Oh my dog! Look at it. It sure is pretty mom. I wonder how I can help them put this up? Oh wait... Dad mentioned getting out adrill. Oh yes!!! I have heard so much of this great tool. I wonder if I can get a peek of it.

Hey Tia... do you see those mounting tools at your feet? I need them please. Dad said they had to be put up with Adrill and I need to meet this adrill.

Next Dad asked me to bring him the actual base of the new fixture, so I did as I was told. Here is mom handing me the base.


Now it is the moment that I have been waiting for - I get to meet Adrill. Dad asked me to bring it to him from the sofa. So, as a dutiful little Siberian, I did ask requested. Here I am with Adrill.

So, while I was being Miss Helpful, guess who was squeezing herself into a box?

Whew! It took alot of stretching for me to reach the ceiling to help Dad, but we finally got it up. Check it out.

Isn't it pretty with the light on??? Mom totally loves it, and it gives a splash of color too, which is right up mom's ally. She has always wanted a fixture like this and now she has one.

Well, I guess I better scoot. I have ALOT of blogs to read since I have not done so in almost a week (I am SOOOO Sorry). I am about to get reading. I hope you all are having a great weekend so far!

Hugs, Sitka

Yes, my hu-mom got what she went for - and more - after all, she hadn't INTENDED to get me khookies but I SibeMindMelded her!

Hi Sitka & Tia,
I got your cute card today!! We enjoyed the husky song..very fitting indeed! That is so sweet that you get along with Tia so well. I have a cockatiel brother that I've learned to adapt to (i.e., I don't eat him).

Nice to meet you!!

What a pretty light. You sure did help your dad out. Great work.

Bama said...

Howroo grrrls,
That is a beawootiful light, our mama loves stained glass (actually all colored glass, she started collecting antique glassware about 1o years ago, now she has all kinds of cool colored glass stuff) and specially loves colored glass when the light shines through it. You grrrls did a wonderful job helping your dad get it hung.
We got your card today, we all had a really good laugh at the song, those Hooligans are something else! Mama bought a really pretty sparkly garland to hang on the ceiling beam that separates our kitchen & family room & hung all the cards we've gotten so far on the garland, now we can look up and see everypuppy whenever we want. She also got the paper & envelopes & stuff for our cards, and said if we don't get off the 'puter she'll never get them printed & ready to go, so I guess we better get to work helping her so they can go in the mail on Monday.
Have a grrrreat weekend,
Bama & the RHP

Oh that's a perfectly lovely light. Mom likes it too! I just knew Adrill would get to your house soon. We gave him directions and he said he might be stopping by. I didn't want to ruin the surprise though. Isn't he cool?

Tucker said...

You done good! Did Tia do anything to help? Or did she just cram herself into the box?

Silly cats!

Harry said...

That is indeed a lovely light, and how fantastic of you girls to help out!

Snowball said...

You are such a good dogter to help your pawrents with installing the light.

Sitka, why didn't you just try to stuff Tia into the box and seal it so that your dad and mum will just throw her out as trash? :P In that way, you won't get steal your toys again.

Luv,

Snowball who feel like being nasty today.

Peeeessss: Will we be keeping to out Sunday date tonight, Beautiful?

Tasha & Eva said...

gSitka, you are such a great helper. How does anything get done without you? Very nice light fixture! Your house looks so great with all the Christmas decoration up. We can't have a tree this year cuz of the remodel that is going on around here. I wonder if that is Adrill's fault? We got 6 inches of snow yesterday! Wish you could come and play in it with us!! Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.
