I don't normally accept awards as I think it can get awkward but sometimes, it depends who is sending you this award that makes it hard to decline.

I received such a nice award the other day but was too sick to write a post to accept and thank Debby from Cozy Blanket. Thanks Debby for thinking that I deserve this award. I accept with humility because I'm sure others are more deserving than me. The award was created to be given to those who spread light into people's lives.

Debby is a sweet lady who has a child like attitude about life and is beloved by all children especially her own grandkids. Even teachers wants her to come to school to work with the children. She always has the most genuine smile on her pretty face. It doesn't take much to make her happy.  She also is a professional Clown. No wonder she's adored by kids. She has a loving way with the children and they all think that she's pretty special and I think so too.

Like Debby, I'm not one to follow all the rules so I'll just post the button award and will leave it at that.
Picking someone from my followers would be tricky.There are so many deserving of this award.

Have a beautiful fall weekend friends.

You know it's Fall when the mice comes marching in...
Friday night I was at the computer when I thought I heard a scratching sound... can't be.... I waited to hear some more scratching and the only noise I heard was my husband snoring in his recliner and I dismissed the noise as my overactive imagination.

You see a few days ago I found the basement door ajar and although the garage is locked up, mice can come in through a small opening and run downstairs to the basement.  It has happened once many years ago when one of my student didn't quite shut the door tight even though the lock was engaged.

Saturday morning after breakfast, I tidying my counter by the phone when I saw a few mouse dropping against the basksplash. They were so small, it looked like they came from a starving mouse. I promptly disposed of them and sanitized my little counter.  On my grocery list was MOUSE TRAP.

I did grocery today and bought a bunch of banana and as I was in the process of removing the single banana from my banana hanger thingie to hang the fresh bunch, I saw a few more fatter mouse droppings. I could see that the Ms. or Mr. Mouse had dined on my banana and had eaten a fair portion in the back of the banana... Oh yes, the guilty party hid their misdeed  so I couldn't see the damage but Ms. or Mr. Mouse don't know who they're dealing with... I'll get them sooner or later and I hope it will be sooner...

See... I set a trap, wrote them a note to welcome them and I even left them a snack of cheese on the nice little trap hoping they like the cheese I bought on special.

Well truth be said... i wrote a note so my husband would not eat that special banana.

Now I'm patiently waiting to hear a quick and merciful "SNAP"

Yep, Fall isn't even officially here yet and they know it's time to search for warmer housing.

I appreciate your comments. Thanks for visiting and come again if you're not a mouse.
