Weekly roundup

18 Mar

Last week, I…

*Got a Kindle Fire!


And it’s awesome.

*Went to the doctor and learned I need to have hand surgery soon to remove a cyst on my wrist. Luckily it shouldn’t interfere with my life too much. But still annoying. I find out more next week.

*Waged war on the mice.


Cotton balls with peppermint oil on them in tea defusers. And dryer sheets. Our house smelled like peppermint linen for a while. Then the smell dissipated, and we saw signs of the mice again. So more peppermint oil, more dryer sheets, and refresh both more often.

*Had dinner with MH and heard about her amazing trip to Belize.

*Saw “Searching for Sugar Man” with SP. It is a great movie – well deserving of the Oscar it received. Go see it. And then go listen to the music.

*Made these…


More on those soon!

*Finished “The Great Gatsby” for book club.

    We had mice for a couple years and when we remodeled the basement, we found their entry. We did this by playing music in the basement and walking around the perimeter of the house and listening. The music located the hole for us. We plugged it and presto, no more mice. When it gets warm, and you would not mind strolling around outside, listening, you might get lucky with this method. The hole was miniscule, but it only needs to be big enough to allow their little heads to pass. This one was fingertip sized!
