Chickens have been fed and watered and . . . . . . . . . . . . . oh my gosh, we caught a mouse last night. Yikes!!! I hate mice. As soon as Fall begins to show itself we start setting traps. Living out in the country and around Indiana cornfields, it is necessary!! When they start harvesting corn, here come the pesky little boogers into the house and I don't like them! What kind of got me this time is it was in the trap in our bedroom and I didn't even hear it! I must have been deep in sleep. I had gotten in from work at 8:30 p.m. last night, ate a roast beef sandwich, checked my e-mail, watched some news and headed straight to bed. It was a rough evening at work. The work itself was not difficult but it was one of those nights. If it could have happened - it DID and oh, I had no idea what I was doing. I got worked over pretty good last night, so I suppose when I closed my eyes I went out quite literally, like a light!! I had a good night's sleep though and have a much more positive perspective this morning. Tomorrow will be better.
Meanwhile, today I filled the hummer feeders. I still have 4-6 hummingbirds and they are ravenously sipping away so I'm keeping the feeders full, for sure!
I decided to make a bunch of flavor bombs today. I've got quite a bit of basil left in the herb garden and I have plenty basil dried and stored so I'm trying to think of ways I can use it. What to do-what to do!! I really do not need any more pesto so after I make the flavor bombs I will probably still have to dry it because I do not dare to let it go to waste. I've always found that when you have excess there's always a reason. The reason may not be evident now but sooner or later you'll have that ah-ha moment. So, I'm off to the herb garden. Talk to you later.
