I think if it were anyone other than Thomas Nina wouldn’t be as nervous. Even though she probably doesn’t need to be. She’s out of practice for subterfuge. I think it’s safe to say that she knows on some level that her plans will only annoy Thomas a little bit but she still wants to spare him the worry. Of course there’s no winning with him when it comes to that sort of thing. Anyway, it’s fun to see her acting odd, although she’s pretty odd generally.
It rained a lot recently and it drove a bunch of mice into the house again. We’ve been catching a lot of them in the pantry because we got a bit lax about keeping food containers shut. If I were a mouse I’d want to get into the open cookie packages too. Anyway, it’s sad, but there’s not really any option that is more effective than regular traps. We can’t have mice getting into the food. Especially when the food costs twice as much as it used to.
Still, I really miss when the neighbors had 30 feral cats on their land. We had several basically mice free years. Makes you get complacent.
Anyway, I’ll leave you to your weekend. If you’d like to support my work please consider using the links above to do so. Mind the storms.
