Wild Kingdom comes back to Casa Diane

Long time readers of Nanners and Noodles (hi, la!), will recognize the Victor" Electronic Rat Trap. Cold weather has been driving the beasties into the house, and the last 2 nights have resulted in 2 less mouses in the world. What I can't manage to eliminate is the rat that I can hear out on the deck at night . . .

Oh, and when I got home Monday night and opened the front door, I was greeted by a mourning dove in my living room. I did manage a successful catch and release.

I know I get cranky with work stress, but these are the news stories that are bugging me . . .

The Michael Phelps pot story. He's a college age guy who has devoted years to training. Does anyone really begrudge him a toke or two? C'mon now.

The crazy octuplet lady. The doctor who implanted 8 embryos should lose his license. Humans aren't meant to have litters.

On the good news side of things . . .

I'm making progress on my sweater


And I'll go to the islands at least 14 lbs. less than last year!

And I got word today that I got a really good result for a client!

LOL!! The cold weather does drive them into the house. (Although NE mice may have a different defination of cold!)

Our daytime temps have been below freezing for about 30 days straight. Maybe more. We broke the cycle today with temps at 49º.

It felt like summer.

Good luck with the critters! The octuplet lady drives me crazy too, and I've said the same "litter" remark.

Maui sounds awesome!

It's warming up now, maybe the mouse and rat situation will work itself out.

Yeah, Michael Phelps, who cares.

Octomama needs to be committed, I'm deadly serious about that. There's a rumor floating that she landed a reality show overseas which would explain why she's looking at a million-dollar house yesterday.
