Summer 2012

I started a new blog. It's Fancyintheforest

Score 1 for the Big Guys

Having located the point of origin as it relates to the mouse in the house and having taken the measures to fill that point of origin with "Great Stuff" expanding foam sealant, all that remained to be accomplished was the actual capture of the intruder.  With what scant tools were available at hand and no choice of driving to the store, due to a substantial amount of newly accumulated snow, we loaded one sticky trap with an irresistibly tasty meal...peanut butter granola bar...then off to bed to see what dreams may come true.  Score 1 for the big guys.  The early rising morning sun brings with it happy surprises, not the least of which is more snow and as goes without saying, the departure of an unwanted house guest.

Already the list of "Things Needed" from town has begun, despite only half a day having lapsed since our last trip there.  Such errands will have to wait though.  Mother Nature has plans for us and we have no choice but to oblige.

The Adventures of Nan & Nate

Today was the second day at our new home. 
9 thousand 200 feet! At this very moment Ranger Nate is cleaning and sealing off the area behind our fire place.  As I was sitting on the couch just a few minutes ago getting ready to write this lovely blog post he informed that a mouse had just run under the couch I was sitting on! Fabulous. I do not care for mice and will now spend the night looking for a cat online. Other than this, our days here have been good. Today it snowed. Nate took Millie for a sleigh ride down the road and then for a quick spin on the John Deer Gator. She loves playing outside rain, snow or shine. We have 8 million boxes to unpack and I'm trying my best to get a move on. I am so grateful for all the help we had moving this last week. I hope all who helped know how much it meant to us. Thanks again! I was going to upload a photo but my cord to connect my phone to the computer is over where the mouse was... you understand?! Nighty night!

It just makes me laugh

It's been a very busy few weeks. We are down to our last days here in Provo and I'm getting pretty excited to move.  We have loved our time here but are ready for a new adventure! I wanted to post something from recent weeks and came across this photo of Millie.  I know I probably shouldn't post it but it makes me laugh so hard when I see it. Hopefully she will forgive me, if she ever sees it.
