A little light is all I needed to see the tiny little 4 legged furry mice. They were having a party.. They had gotten the minature marshmallows off the pantry shelf that goes down my basement steps.. They had opened them and they were scattered all over the floor. I went back upstairs and turned off the basement light and got my flashlight.. As I was sitting on the basement steps with the flashlight shining on the ceiling,,so the light would reflex on the floor.. I just sat and waited and was very quiet.. SHHHHH~! These mice must be leftovers from Chirstmas. Pretty soon out they came from their hiding place and cautiously tip toed back to where the marshmallows were.. Nibble Nibble ~ stop~ look around ~ Nibble Nibble ~ stop~ look around. Then they just gave up looking and just stood on their hind legs with the tiny marshmallows in their hands chewing on those fluffy sticky delicious sugary treats... It was so cute, they had sticky marshmallow stuck on their faces, whiskers,and paws... I wish I could of gotten up and got my camera. Taken the picture of all the fun they were having. They were in Marshmallow heaven... Well, I got up and went out to the shed and got the live trap and put all the marshmallows into the trap and left.. I'll check it out in the morning and see if they went in to get somemore treats. If they do I'll take them to the neighbors who has a nice barn they can live in and hopefully they are careful and the farmers cats don't eat them... I know that sounds cruel ~ but did you want me to put out poison?
Today I went to the neighbors house to take her some cookies I had baked...She came to the door looking really bad.. I asked her if she was sick and she said no. She had all her teeth removed yesterday and she was really under the weather.. I made her some soup and hot tea.. She was so happy I came to help her... Her husband came home from work and I came back home. I had grilled chicken for him and made a baked potato and some green beans.. He was really happy.. He was glad I came over to see how his wife was doing and take care of her.. He said he wasn't working tomorrow and he would be home to take care of her.. I was so glad to do it for her. Isn't that what neighbors are suppose to do? Watch out for each other>. I think God had it all planned that I was suppose to go to her house today.. Sometimes we just need to listen to him whispering in our ears. They both really thanked me and I was so glad I could help..
You never know what the day will bring. ( I told her about my mice and she said I should of just put out the poison)... she offered one of her cats to come to my house and take care of them.. I said "No I'll just see if they cooperate and get into the live trap".. take them to the Neitert farm up the road. She just laughed at me..
Well, you all have a tiggeriffic day~1 ta ta for now...
