As of Sunday night I have managed to trap 6 mice over Saturday and Sunday. I know you're all jealous of my catching mice prowess and the fact we have so many of them roaming freely in the house...........NOT!!! I went out and bought six more mouse traps today, so have 9 of them set in and around the house. How much do you want to bet I will have caught 9 mice by the time you read this on Monday morning!!! We think they are coming in at the old basement, but not sure where.
Now we decided to give Molly a bath/shower on Sunday afternoon. So I go to the pet store to make sure I get shampoo that will maybe help with Molly's allergies. I also picked up a kong for her, and a couple of treats. As we were talking to the lady she was saying that chicken, beef, wheat and corn are the main cause of allergies and if it doesn't get any better, to try her on vegetarian dog food.
Did you hear a groan? It was my dad and he's saying, "only she would make her dog into a vegetarian." As I am writing this, a mouse trap went off, so up to number 7 now!!! So I will have to go and investigate and likely reset it.
Anyhow, back to Molly, so we may try her on a vegetarian diet if she doesn't get any better. Meanwhile dh is whining in the pet store, that I look after the dog better than I do him!!! :0) As we don't have a bath in this house, I strip off in the shower and bath Molly in there. She was really good, and stood still the whole time. However for the rest of the day she has looked depressed, which isn't hard when you are a hound!!! Dh even took her for a walk to try and cheer her up!!! She doesn't smell much better but her coat is just so soft and lovely.
She sort of liked the kong, I stuffed it with her biscuits and peanut butter, so it kept her out of mischief for a couple of minutes while she got the peanut butter out.
It didn't rain like it was supposed to so I was able to get a bit of grass cut on Sunday, and am over half way through the field. I am hoping I won't have to cut it again this year. Its such a difference from when we moved in, as the grass was knee high then. Now its a regular length and a lot easier to take care of.
We spent Sunday morning working around the house doing some odds of jobs, nothing overly exciting, but stuff that needed to be done. It was a bit warmer than it was on Saturday and we didn't need to have a fire on or anything, which is good for this time of the year. However it's supposed to get colder as the week progresses.
Today (Monday) dh goes back to work after being on vacation for the past three weeks. I know it will be strange not having him around. I don't think we achieved as much as we wanted to while he was off, and I know we didn't get away as much as we had hoped, but I do enjoy having him home. Just wish he wasn't in so much pain with his shoulder and his elbows.
Have a super week.......
