And so the chase began. This one was smart, hiding behind a very heavy piano. And when we finally rousted him from behind it with the broom and a lot of coaxing, he ran around the living room, out to the dining room and behind the ETS heating unit. After quite a bit of trying (which included a paper towel wad taped onto the end of a curtain rod) Reid caught him in the trusty sherbet container (and yes, he's stopping on his way home this evening and buying humane traps). We took him down the road, and wished him well in the field across from our house.
(This is the first mouse we caught)
Now on to the randomness... I had almost completely given up on the grass seed that we spread several weeks ago, until I looked out the front door and saw this! It definitely gives me hope that if we get more spread in the next few weeks we might actually have a lawn!
Also, I realized I took some pictures a long time ago from the far end of our pasture to show everyone in blog-land where our property extends. So... I thought I'd finally post those.
These two pictures are taken from the far eastern corner of our property.
Last week I reorganized the cards for the "Side-Tracked Home Executive" cleaning system that I started back in Virginia. I scheduled Monday as one of my heavier cleaning days and something I realized this morning, as I was cleaning, is this house is a lot bigger than anything I'm used to living in/cleaning. Sheesh... But I'm almost done with all of my cards for today and that feels pretty good (and I do love having clean floors and dusted surfaces!).
(These are my cards for the day... I'm now down to eight!)
(Aren't they pretty? They are a little taller than I expected them to be... and I am not all that fond of the cords that run along the wall... but the dryer sings a little song when it is done and I love that!)
And finally... the long anticipated pictures of our washer and dryer!
