July 16-August 6, 2016
At the end of my last post..the topic was a mouse in the trailer…since then we have had two dead mice in the trap located in the furnace compartment…
We have placed a bar of Irish spring under the shower stall in the hopes that this will deter the ‘rodents’…Doug also built a ‘mouse trap’ for outside…
- one bucket filled with water
- an empty water bottle smeared with peanut butter
- a dowel to suspend the bottle over the ‘swimming pool’..
- and a ramp to help the mice into the ‘pool’..
This trap has caught eight mice in two days…better that they are outside rather than inside the trailer..
Some would say, ‘but they have a cat’..well the kitty lets us know when there is a mouse in the vicinity…but would he actually catch one and kill it?..not too sure about that…so we use the good old fashioned mouse trap and the ‘swimming pool trap’…one can only hope that this will alleviate the ‘mouse issue’..
Two in the ‘pool’..zero in the trailer..
As we sit here at 3800 feet we are still waiting for summer to arrive?…oh where are you ‘heat wave?’..we are still wearing jeans and our fleece jackets..sure there has been days where shorts are the attire but not too often..
I know that soon we will be saying..’geeze it’s hot outside’ but for now it would be nice to have some warm sunshine..
July 20..August 6, 2016
It has been three weeks since I opened the Live Writer program…We have been busy working…the days are long..the campers are great.. we are busy finding our way as the camping season progresses..
Carlie and Adam came for a surprise two night visit over the August Long weekend…so nice to see the two of them..it was a good distraction for us..the food was delicious and the company was even better…they were both such a big help..
Carlie helped me with the paper work in the evening..Adam helped Doug build the recycling table and he split some firewood as well…and of course, Fletcher came along and he kept Tucker busy!!
A deer crossing early in the morning..bringing with her two fawns..
the weeds are still winning the war…Doug and I pulled a pickup truck load of weeds from one campsite..
there was no before picture but Doug took one after we were done..
so as another Sunday is upon us tomorrow…the park is fairly quiet this weekend but everyone is behaving so that is a good thing…
one last Saturday night sunset…
..onwards to another week…stay tuned for more from Tunkwa…
