This is Morgan Mouse. He’s nice and quiet, stays where I put him – most of the time – and never gets in any trouble. I wish all mice were like him. I posted about him here.
But there are mice in my house that are nothing like Morgan. They get into everything! I have a cabinet they have gotten into that we can’t figure out how, but anything I pull out of it has to be washed before use. I have a large bottle of bleach right by the sink. My hands constantly smells of it – ugh!
But what really made me mad was when I found out that they have been in my thread!!!
A brand new ball of thread – destroyed! I am not a happy tatter right now!
I was looking for thread for Jane’s TIAS just before it started and kept noticing these red bits and ends. I almost couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this ball of thread! Now I’m having to clean out my thread drawer and figure a way to keep the mice out. In fact, I’m having to check out the entire dresser. I have many things I’d rather be doing!
It’s days like these that I wish we still had a cat. We never had this kind of problem with a cat in the house.
On to more pleasant things, like Jane’s TIAS. Here is mine up through Day 5.
There have been a lot of guesses as to what it will be but I don’t think any of them are correct – Jane is much too sneaky for that! My guess has been some kind of plant, but that’s only because she’s not done one yet for a TIAS. We will have to wait to find the right answer.
Day 6 is going to be available tomorrow, January 21! I know I’m not the only one looking forward to it.
Will Day 6 be the day it becomes more obvious what it is? (hahahaha!)
