Yes, it is deer hunting season. Each year my four brothers place their $5.00 wager as to who will get the biggest buck and then spend the weekend trying to earn their money back and get their name and picture put on the trophy for the Biggest Buck Award. This year my youngest brother got the honor with his 10-point buck. Here he is making fun of my other brother's mere 7-point buck. My two oldest brothers had to settle for just taking pictures!!
What we learned this past weekend, however, is that there is more than one way to get a buck! Late Sunday night K's roommate was driving K's car and ran into a large deer. We are very thankful that her roommate walked away without a scratch. The car and the deer were not so lucky!! The car is totaled and we are now in the process of trying to find a good used car for her.
Between that, and my tax seminar Tuesday and babysitting today, I haven't been able to do much knitting. I'm excited (and nervous) to cast on my sweater. I think I may be changing my mind on which one to do, but I'll let you know. I'm casting it on this weekend. Promise.
In the meantime, I am pushing hard for a new kitty. Yes, I think this is reason enough to get one. A mouse. A mouse in my house. This is the time of year they always come in. And when you live in the country like we do, it is a fact of life. But it doesn't mean I like it!! I'm thinking a cat would remedy this situation...don't you think? Does it REALLY matter that my children are allergic? I mean, it is very possible they are allergic to mice as well and this would help them out!
Oh, by the way, as a self-proclaimed expert in the mouse catching field, I truly believe that the mousetrap you see in the picture is The Better Mouse Trap. I've tried them all. This one works best. Now you know.
Well, I think I do have a little time tonight that I can get some knitting done, so I think I'll do that.
Until Next Time.....
