Everyone knows how much I love beginning my day on my back porch. I also love to end my day here, too! It usually helps me to unwind and relax for the night. Well, not so much for the past couple of weeks. I keep seeing a large mouse or a small rat scurrying around in the evening. He is very quick and it is so hard to get a good look at him. He is very mischievous, knocking over small flower pots and my pictures and other artsy stuff that I have sitting around on the iron bakers rack and small desk that sits in the corner. He climbs up the curtains that I have on the outside of the bedroom sliding door. He climbs in and out of the small baskets of garden tools and supplies. For the last couple of nights he has added some singing to his routine. I think he is singing " You Can't Touch This" ! We have put out a rat trap, the old fashioned kind with a piece of cheese. He has not touched it! I have to admit that I do not want to see him caught in it. I am thinking that would tear me up to see his squished little body. I wish that I could just relocate him to the wooded area down by the creek. But how would I catch him? Please share any ideas that you may have! Have an awesome day!
