Melting Strawberry Shortcake from Can-Do this afternoon...the best strawberry scent I have found. It's very sweet and light!
Boogie, I take it your kitty caught the mouse! lol Love the hunting instinct cats have!!!! So cool.
Maggie, OMG! Girl! That is a lot of bats! We only had a couple in our attic. One got caught in our attic fan grate and I had to call critter control to come and get it! He had to destroy it as soon as he removed it. Once we got the roof vent fixed and the dormers checked, they weren't able to get it anymore. They can squeeze into the smallest spaces...like no bigger than your thumb. We still see them flying around at dusk in the summer though! We live in a country setting with many older houses around. There is also a very old church in town that is full of bats! Sometimes in the summer, if I take a walk reeeeaaally early...like 5:30am...I can also see the bats flying around...it is sort of creepy. I know what you mean about the bugs...even with the bats, we still have a lot of mosquitos.
Okay, gals, I am off to help with homework, get dinner on the table and take DS#1 to karate...

Trep - I'm gonna stop watching our local weather. Hearing you say what your weather is like is all I need to know cuz it seems it comes my way after it passes by you. It was really warm here today - almost 60 degrees!
MaggieMae - I'm pretty sure you can purchase bat houses for your yard. Maybe that would encourage them to come back to your yard. If you're sure you really want em, that is. I've seen bats fly around at dusk in the summer here, too. I shoo my pup back in the house when I see them cuz it creeps me out.
I'm melting FP's Cranberry Bread. Deeeeelish!

I found a good way to de-stress tonight. I made 3 little felt flowers to go on one of my wreaths. They're pretty cute and I had fun making them. Next I will try a new style of flower (to go on the same wreath). There are lots of tutorials all over the place online.
