I Was Going to Sew...Really I Was
A couple days ago we had a mouse that was quickly dispatched from the house and everything was cleaned and sanitized. Well, it appears it had some friends...notice the plural. We had set some traps just in case and there was one in it this morning but I also heard one in the cupboard. My son tried to get it but unfortunately it got away! Now my kitchen is torn apart again but I am hesitant to clean and sanitize and put stuff away until the other little bugger is caught. I feel like I need to stand on guard to protect my territory from the enemy! Thankfully, I had been on a mission lately to get everything stored in glass jars so most of our dry goods are secure. Our air conditioner has been on the fritz lately so we have been keeping the patio door open in the evenings to help cool the house. After the cupboard incident this morning, my husband noticed that there is a small hole at the base of the screen door and that must be how they got in. I can assure you that he will be fixing that as soon as he gets home from work tonight. Anyone have a cat I can borrow?
On a happier note - we have cherry tomatoes, not many yet but they have started to ripen. These are the first tomatoes of the year and they were picked on Wednesday. There is nothing like tomatoes that are freshly picked from the garden!
