Hahaha, not only would I hurt myself using the "Rubber Band Method", I would more then likely need a reminder to use it when I was suppose to. This is another good one I was aware of years ago, but never have practised myself, so should anyone who knows me see me going around with a rubber band on my wrist, you will know what it is all about. LOL
"So began my yesterday ..... cloudy and mild temperatures with mostly rain all throughout the day."
I most certainly wasn't as productive as I would have liked to have been, but I did manage to accomplish a couple of things. It all started in my kitchen ...."Ingredients all set out and made ready."
"Somehow we did manage to bring it together, ending up with a bunch of "blind" and "scentless" mices. Then figured out what kind of concoction was needed to give them their eyes and noses."
"With eyes and sniffers they all appeared in hoards travelling in about my kitchen ..... "Invasion of the Bruce County Chocolate Christmas Mice" !!! "
Not only was there an invasion of Mices in my kitchen, but what a mess to clean up after all the "Reindeer Poop" !"I would think just in time to be bagged up for some "gift" giving !"

THE REINDEER POOP POEM
On the night before Christmas, I heard St. Nick call, "Dash away, dash away, dash away all!" I scurried out to the lawn and in the snow drifts, those naughty reindeer had left behind "little gifts". I got out an old shovel and started to scoop, neat little piles of "reindeer poop", but because I recycle, and don't like to waste, I saved them all up for you to taste !
..... kind of evening so of course I had to fire up the woodstove.
It was pretty nippy out there earlier on this morning when Missy Mercedes and I were first out, so I best be checking in with the Wiarton Airport Weatherman guy to see what the rest of the day will bring.
Yes Sirree, there is is in grey and white, with not one little bit of Yellow in it. -4 ? ... baby it is cold out there, but alas he can not hear me, as my "Crabby Cabbie" baby is still fast asleep after the big day he had working yesterday !
People to see and things to do, so I best be getting on with my new adventure into the day ahead, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
