Of Mice and Men

One tiny mouse. Seven big humans. One large dog.

Last month, the freezing temperatures summoned a mouse into the great indoors: our living room. We spotted the mouse making a dash from sofa to television. It was a tiny mouse, the size of a walnut. A walnut with fur. And whiskers. And little pink ears. And a black tail.

My 17-year-old son and his two friends just happened to arrive home just in time. Let’s corner it and shoo it out the front door, we brainstormed on the fly.

It was my husband, me, my daughter, my 17-year-old son and his two 17-year-old friends, my youngest son, and our dog vs. one mouse, the size of a walnut.

Let me tell you, it took the eight of us to lift the sofa to scare the mouse to the wall’s edge, to get down on one’s knees and clap loudly, to scream with excitement, to block the dining room, to prevent Otis from eating it, to dance wildly in the middle of the room, to chase it with an orange Home Depot bucket, to continue to persuade it along the wall’s edge, to open the front door.

We did it! What a team effort!

When the mouse fled through the front door, we all stood there a little stunned, threw our heads back, and laughed.

That sweetie! #yellowlab #winter #yellowlabrador #dogso?nstagram #dog #snowdog

My Pumpkin Bread Sucks Balls

I had great plans for these pumpkin loaves. Great, healthy plans.

You know, use oat flour instead of flour flour. Use chia seed gel as the oil. Use applesauce to replace half of the sugar.

Removing them from the oven, the pumpkin bread smelled delicious. However, removing them from the pans, the loaves were dense yet sorta gooey.

After doling out wedges to my kids, my eight-year-old son bravely took a taste and announced, “Your pumpkin bread sucks balls.”
