I know, what the heck!!! It turns out I have been keeping the mouse and vole population alive and well through this cold season.
The basement in the new extension is a walkout basement with patio doors.
On Sunday Molly spent most of the day sitting in the front of the patio doors. I couldn't understand why. Finally after standing there for a while I saw what was interesting Molly. Little brown furry voles scurring back and forward eating the bird seed that the birds have discarded on the deck above.
So it seems the more I feed the birds the more I am feeding the mice and voles. Who knew I was such a humanitarian to all wild creatures!!! I personally don't have a problem with mice and voles as long as they stop outside and don't decide to move in with us.
I could have taken a better photo, but then you would see what sort of mess there is down there, despite the fact I have just tidied it up!! And do I really want the world to know what sort of mess there is down there.....NO!!
Did you put your money into your pot today for the Daily Savings Club? We are on the homeward stretch now of the first month!!
Today's Money Saving Tip:
Turn a critical eye to your “collections.” Most people collect something – what do you collect? Is it something that consistently brings you joy? Or is it something that you just do out of habit at this point? Does the collection itself have value? Could you perhaps “trim the fat” from this collection by getting rid of duplicates or getting rid of the items you no longer use? Also, could you perhaps cut down on your spending on that hobby? Focus on trimming the things you don’t feel strongly about – if you dig into things that bother you, you’re going to eventually relapse.
