A Mouse In The House

October 13, 2012

Good morning.  It is quite chilly here.  35 degrees F.  The weather man says it will climb up to the mid 50's later today.  Tomorrow and Monday should be a regular heat wave with temps between 65 and 72 degrees.  Woo Hoo!!

Sorry about not posting yesterday, but there was no internet connection at work.  Plus I was busy all day.  The visiting nurse came in to  give Mrs her flu shot, and then the hairdresser came to give her a perm.  Two hours later, she was beautiful and happy.  Hmmmm, the hairdresser should maybe come every week?  (I know, I'm bad!)  I took a beautiful photo of Mrs, but I have to ask her permission before I can post it here.

On the way home from work, I stopped by the bank.  Then when I got home, I played with Pogo for a bit.  He gets so excited when I come back home from anywhere.  It's a super nice feeling.  After that, I took Joe (dwarf) to Walmart for a few groceries.  After putting things away, I took another of the dwarfs to a supermarket so that she could get her groceries.  Of course, I picked up a few more things too.  We do for each other.  That's how it's supposed to be.

Some folks don't know why I call my tenants dwarfs.  It started some years ago when I was explaining how the main part of my house is a sort of rooming house.  By renting out some of the rooms, I am able to pay the bills on the house.  It's a really big house. All the tenants used to be men, so it was sort of like Snow White and the seven dwarfs (counting Moo there were eight).  Referring to the guys as dwarfs also gives them privacy when I write about happenings here in the house.

I have a couple of photos to share this morning.  These were taken yesterday at work through a double layer of windows in the Mrs' kitchen.  The birds are feasting on the seed pods on the dried evening primrose plant stalks.



Now I'm off to get dressed and go check on the mouse situation in the main part of the house.  Yesterday, a mouse ran across the floor in the den, and drove Pogo crazy!  Eddie came over to take care of the situation.  Hopefully, the mice will move to someone else's house and leave us alone.  That's all for today.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I hope she allows you to post her photo. I've often wondered what she looks like. The mouse sounded TOO exciting for me! We had many of those in the old house by the woods, hopefully we'll be able to avoid them in our RV. I love the explanation of the dwarfs - so cute!

I always am curious about the mrs. Would be nice to see a photo of her.
Hey, happy mouse hunting LOL!
I don;t mind mice, at least, not by seeing them, but I better see them outside the house.
Have a great day!
