Storm season is here and while I sit inside listening to a crackling fire I can still hear the sounds of the crashing waves and the howling wind outside my window.
Weather attitude darkens my mood and as the days are getting shorter my sunny disposition is being constantly tested. Here in southern Norway we have had nothing but rain and storms for the past two weeks and although there is still no sign of snow the mice have decided that they have had enough of the soggy grass outside our door and moved inside to avoid the weather.
Imagine trying to sleep at night while listening to the sound of tiny feet scrambling above your head. That my friend is when you make sure you have your feet tightly tucked beneath the blanket, poke the person beside you in bed and say, “Did you hear that?” Finally after doing that several times the response is, “Go back to sleep, it’s just a mouse or two.” Go back to sleep! As if I had fallen asleep in the first place! Finally I end up falling asleep with visions of mice nibbling on my toes. This has been going on all week-end; needless to say I am very tired. Major goal today is mice eviction. I thought it was a man’s job to protect his family from home invasion…sigh…
Any of you out there have a weather attitude or a problem with home invasion?
Don’t forget this Wednesday is the Insecure Writers Support Group. I double booked myself with both the IWSG and the Resurrection blogfest to celebrate Mina Lobo’s one year blogging anniversary. Check out both, it’s not too late to join the fun.
