July 23, 2011

Been a busy day already this morning.
Took the first trapped mouse of the season out to the countryside and released it. I hope we don’t have as many to catch and release this summer as last year. Seems we get inundated with the little critters after the maintenance man mows the ditch behind the park, which butts up with my backyard. I think I released 1-2 mice every day for about a month or so last year.
Came home and cleaned the doves’ cage and let them fly around for a bit. Vacuumed their room. Then did my exercises and then went out and weeded for a bit out front. Trying to keep that area up. I hope to get the irises and daylilies planted in the big box out front tomorrow. I keep forgetting. They won’t do anything until next year since I am so late getting them in the ground.
Going to rest for a few minutes before I start on the spot-cleaning of the carpets. That is going to take quite a while.

Well … that didn’t take as long as I thought it would. I did the carpet in the doves’ room, and the entry into the living room. My back is hurting, so I had to stop. Will try to get the rest of the room tomorrow.
Now, making new batch of sugar syrup for the hummers and moving their feeder up to the deck to hang from the awning. Let’s see how long it takes for the ants to find it … I will get some Vaseline in the future to put on the post hanger.

Going to make a blackberry/banana smoothie for lunch, I think. I had apple wedges with cinnamon for breakfast again. Good stuff.

Finished a load of laundry and starting on listing things now.

I am getting so frustrated with my camera!! Rechargeable batteries died, so put them in the charger. Put new batteries in the camera. It won’t open/turn on!!! This is not the first time this has happened with it …

Huh. The good old-fashioned technique of hitting it worked!

I am done listing things for the day. My back is killing me.

The nightly wrestling match under my chair is on now! They are cute, but it is annoying when they constantly throw each other against the base of the chair. Thump.

Already caught another mouse. He’ll have to wait until morning to be released. Too late to go out for me. I’ll toss a treat in the trap before bed to keep him occupied.

Got most of the ingredients set out to make apple/pecan bars in the morning. I’ve been soo hungry for them lately! Don’t want the oven on this late. It will never cool down in this heat. So, first thing in the morning I will make them.

OMG! I just found out the REAL Anthony Starke is on Twitter. Last year, there was a fake one that the girls on Make It Or Break It outed and got tossed off Twitter because Anthony didn’t have an account. Now he does! Catching up on his tweets now. For those who don’t know, he is my little Ezra’s namesake (via his character from Magnificent Seven, Ezra Standish.)

Fun reads on Anthony Starke’s Twitter page @AnthonyStarke. And, found out Eric Close has a Twitter, too @EricRClose! I knew Rick Worthy and Michael Biehn had pages. I follow Michael, but he doesn’t Tweet much.
@rickworthy; @MichaelBiehn I'm not sure about the other 3 Mag7 actors. I've not looked them up.
