Boring slow Saturday at your house?
Not at mine.
We were cleaning house. That major deep clean that only happens a few times a year. The kids didn't even complain about helping. They had their chores and knew what needed to be done. Once chore at a time. Work for 20 minutes take a break for 10. Not a bad day.
Mina's chore is cleaning the bathroom. It is one she likes to skimp on but I am strict. I do let a few things slide but today she had to get them down. Every surface, to include the toilet had to be wiped down. All wood work polished. I wanted it spotless.
It was going great until she heard a bumping under the tub.
There was a mouse nest under there but we have almost eradicated them. The nest they had under there is abandoned We have just the occasional mouse coming in to see if he can find some food. One of those stray mice got caught in a trap today. I made a note to ask Dragon to dispose of it when he gets home.
A snake found the mouse before Dragon could get home. The bumping was the snake trying to eat the mouse, trap and all.
After much panicking, (by me) the snake gave up his prize and is gone.
And I have a half digested mouse in a trap under my bathtub. It is visible from the access door on the side of the apron.
Ick ick ick. I HATE SNAKES!
Would I call it a phobia?
Why, yes I would!
Snake repellent and large sticky traps are now on the shopping list. Someone recommended lemon grass. I think I may have to plant the ENTIRE yard in that stuff if it really works!
