So, I think we have a mouse... mice. As I am sitting here in my {finally} quiet house, I have heard two snaps which I believe are the two brand new mouse traps my husband put in my kitchen cabinets. It has completely and totally freaked me out. Unnecessarily, I suppose. But truthfully, I am contemplating sitting here in my chair all night until my husband finally wakes up to eliminate the 2 victims and reset the traps for a couple more. I fear that we have a whole family, not just one or two. I could be exaggerating, but honestly I detest and fear bugs, rodents & reptiles. I don't know why. They don't scare me outside, but inside they may as well be man eating lions. They just terrify me.

Aren't you glad I have returned to the world of blogging? By the way, I just know these 2 cute mice pictured above are some crazy person's pets not vermin that have infilrated their home. I have made 500 buttons for the wool show and I promise to make more if I ever gain the courage to put my feet down off my chair.

Happy Birthday!

This is one of my favorite photos of my sister. I can not express what she means to me. She has always taken care of me... and everyone else. I can remember sitting on the front step listening to the radio (it was a blue ball shaped radio with 2 silver buttons that looked like eyes) when boys constantly came to see her. I'm sure I was a terrible nudge & embarrassed her a million times with my incessant talking... but she always let me stay. She is selfless & thoughtful and has more creativity in her pinky than I can ever dream of having! I hope that your birthday was wonderful & happy. I love you more then words can say.
