Birds of a Feather

1. The other night, C was working late and saw a little critter poke his head around the corner.  That’s right: we have a mouse.  Boo!  He was beginning to think it was just a delusion, but then last night we saw the little guy again.  We now have four different types of traps.  My money is on the Tomcat Glue Board, but maybe this second set of Victor snap traps will do the trick (it turns out that if you buy the “easy set” snap traps, they are also easy for the mouse to outsmart, even with peanut butter).

Which is worse – a mouse, or the squirrel intruders we had this time last year?  It’s a toss-up.

2. Hoping to see this awesome light show soon – maybe tonight!

3.  We’ve been visiting a few churches in the area.  One of the biggest surprises – how much I like a Sunday evening service.  It leaves us to have a restful and fun Sunday morning (I feel like Sunday afternoons just don’t end up being quite as restful).

4.  I had a great time getting to see some family last weekend – a bunch of us ladies went to the Beth Moore conference in Reading.  It was a neat day, wonderful to catch up with some aunts and cousins, and the drive out there was beautiful.  Early fall is a great season to get out of the city for a day.

5.  A really terrific new chocolate cake recipe.  Serving this tonight after a dinner of pulled chicken sammies, coleslaw and quick pickled corn.
