Friday Haiku


A mouse in my house
But it turns out it's not real
Made me think of Beth

I was cleaning out some closets, making room for the things that will be coming in the house next week, or at least the things that I am aware of. At the back of a cupboard I found this toy mouse. At first I flipped out, then realized it was just a toy, but a pretty good replica nonetheless.

Eek on the mouse..fake or otherwise. And poor Beth -- she's had more...had an email from her this morning and there were 3 or them running around the kitchen. This is what happens when our weather doesn't turn as it's supposed to -- my heart just goes out to her. "Houston" has his work cut out for him!

Loved the Haiku!

I've said it before - ;) - and I'll say it again - Argh!

That picture is way too close to my reality. Mouse + little feet on hardwood floor = horror.

I did a big double take too.....thought maybe I was on the wrong blog...or the right blog....or maybe just confused. Great shot.

thank god it was a toy...

we will check out traps at the cottage tomorrow and I'm assuming some little mice will be found...

the ones who wanted some warmth for christmas....

it's kind of sad....but they just can't be in my space...you know, right ?
