Wednesday Bits-n-Bobs

And here I was thinking it might be a slow news day, but then we had ourselves a little morning adventure: our first mouse in the new house!

Mouse 1

All I can think of is Ratatouille when I look at this picture, lol.

Archie and Ollie were skulking around in the dining room all morning, but I wasn't really paying much attention ... after tripping over a cat for the third or fourth time though, it started to sink in that something was up. They were really stuck in this one place, and they were focusing intently on something behind the china cupboard, so I mentioned to the boys that they must sense a mouse in the wall. But as it turned out, they more than sensed it - they had that little critter trapped against the wall!

So after an appropriate amount of screaming (by me) and scrambling about (by us all) we managed to get the cats out of the room and trap the tiny mouse in a tupperware container.

Mouse 3

He was awfully cute I must admit.

Now, as it happened, Bill was working from home today, but taking a call outside, he was completely oblivious to the commotion inside. Once I had the mouse in the container I trotted him right outside (took pictures, natch) and turned him over to my husband - who, as I understand, deposited the creature in the woods out front. (Of course, I'm sure he'll just find his way back in!)

You know, in the 20+ years we've had cats not one of them has ever caught a mouse. I'm not sure if that says more about my cats or my housekeeping, but I think this move "up country" will be very entertaining for Archie and Ollie. I'm sure this won't be the last mousie to find his way inside as Winter's chill seeps into town!


Well, I thought I might have one or two other things to mention to you today, but that's all I've got for now. Actually, that's all Little Bear's giving me time for right now ... as I finish this up he's getting rather impatient in the baby swing next to me! 

More to come tomorrow, my friends ... have yourselves a good night!


Oh my goodness, it's done!

I finally finished our Disney vacation blog! Every spare minute I had this past week I was working on it, and it just went live a few minutes ago. If you'd like a peek at what Disney was like for us (and how we fared during the long, long drive there and back) please feel free to peruse our pictures and notes. I must warn you, there's a whole lot of pictures to sift through, and, true to form, I use a lot of words, lol. We had a wonderful time, and I wanted to be sure to make note of every detail - the big and the small ...

I hope you enjoy it!


Good Tuesday Morning!

Oh, I can't tell you how good it feels to be back home! Especially to sleep in our own beds again! Not that we didn't sleep well in Disney, but there's just nothing like your own bed for true comfort and peace. :) 

(And yes, in case my "Pinecone Mickey" wasn't clear in its message - that's where we've been for the past several days. We took the family to Disney World! And lived to tell all about it, lol!)

At the moment, I'm knee-deep in laundry, trying to get the household back in order - trying to get the kids (and me) back in "homeschool" mode. Slowly but surely things are getting back to normal ... but I just can't believe how quickly that week flew by! It seemed like it was taking forever to come, and then one minute it was Easter Sunday and the next thing I knew we were driving off on a clear, cool spring morning ~ beginning our great big Disney adventure ...

I can't wait to share all our pictures with you, and tell you all about our experience. I've set up a new "vacation" blog just for this purpose and I will share the link as soon as it's ready. I must warn you though - I took an awful lot of pictures!! 

So it will be a little quiet here until I get the blog all ready - every free moment I have I'm working on it. I want to pull it all together while the memories are still fresh. In the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderful week. It's a little drizzly here this morning but everything's so pretty and green. All the flowering trees and shrubs are in full bloom, too - pink, yellow, purple and white. As lovely as Florida was (and it was very lovely), I truly missed the glory of Spring in New England. :)

Have a great day, everyone! See you again soon!
