morning to ya.

yesterday we noticed a little field mouse youngster skipping around the floor here at casa enhab.  after a little internets research we decided the little hopper is about 4-6 weeks old and in that period where it's exploring away from mama. we decided to catch him and release him outside behind the house.  thinking he'd find his way back to the nest which is most likely under the house.  but guess what?  an hour later he was scurrying around indoors again.  silly mouse.  his informal name is now mr. willy.  or little willy.  snicker snicker.  i know, i'm immature.  

so i know what i did next was not the right solution for a person who is trying to get rid of a mouse but i couldn't  help myself.  i started to leave him little mousie snacks on the floor.  he's had almond slivers, watermelon, leftover oatmeal, kashi cereal.  he's a healthy eater.  

anyway, now what?

beyond that, it's flipping hot here.  and i'm working on this funny crooked house painting and patching and stuff.  and sending out enhabiten orders.  and jumping in the swimming pool outside my door every once in awhile.   are you jealous?   

i'm also having intense dreams and reading about dream research and interpretation and thinking about that a lot.   continuing my train of thought from yesterday, i am for the first time in my life really sitting with some thoughts and ideas instead of flitting on to the next thing.  so the dreams, i find myself sitting quietly and really turning them over in my head and giving them their true due attention.  swimming out deep with them if you will.

love the sneak peeks of your house, love the mouse, jealous of the swimming, glad you're finding a way to at least be open to dreams coming true. i'm finding myself tied down these days and it's not the best feeling for a deep swimmer, big dreamer.

He is adorable - I relocate them all when they get indoors - and sometimes, some of them find their way home!!! Let's hope Mr. Willie is not a Miss - or you will have more cuties about!!!LOL

Did you catch him with your hands? I tell you, nothing is like holding a baby mouse with your hands. This is how I caught a little guy who kept coming into our apartment. Unfortunately we couldn't let him stay because our kitty was having fun with him. Ultimately, miss Sweetpea got a hold of him before we could the last time. :(

If I didn't have a carnivorous fluffers, I'd probably be doing the same thing you are. Haha. He's so stinking cute!

Cute, cute little mouse. We had a cute little chipmunk join us. That was about 34 days ago and we still can't get him to rejoin the outdoors. Even the 3 cats aren't bothering him. I think he has taken up permanent residence.
