My daughter left for Sun Valley yesterday. All the others decided to go to town. I get it, Elko is a small town and Boise has a bigger selection of things. I helped my daughter load up, then she decided to stay and chat a while.
While loading, we decided to run my trap line. I finally caught up with the little bastard that’s invaded my home.
We’ve lived here for 20 years and never had a mouse. My wife decided to pick up some newfangled Bloomingdales traps. I must have caught thousands of them with the old fashioned Victor Mouse Traps. These new ones went off multiple times, without catching the little bugger. I don’t think it would have taken this long with better equipment.
I kind of thought I’d sneak some reading or writing time in, but my daughter stayed two hours. I really don’t mind. One-on-one with my daughter for a couple hours was kind of a treat.
The in-laws left about two hours ago, with their two small dogs. We had a good visit, and even tried a new restaurant last night. It made for a wonderful evening.
Funny how people with a refrigerator overflowing with leftovers will go to a restaurant. We wouldn’t have, but it was a family visit kind of thing. We likely don’t have to do any shopping this week.
Opie, the dog, is the only one left. My son and his family got home about 2:00 AM. They said they’d come get him first thing this morning. It’s 11:30 already, so they kind of missed that appointment.
I don’t mind. Opie is a good boy and my dogs had a lot of fun with him.
I paid the bills this morning, and it’s about time to dig in for the remainder of the weekend.
I started reading a novel yesterday. My visit limited me to one chapter, but I started it. I may work on that sometime this afternoon.
If you had a holiday, I hope you had a wonderful one. If not, I hope you had a great weekend.
