This evening, Jillian is at my parents' house for an overnight. I have an all day embalming seminar (yes, I said embalming) to attend tomorrow for CEU's needed to keep my funeral director license active. John was at Josh's Parents Night at his elementary school. So I had some time alone.
I was enjoying a tasty adult beverage on the front steps in the crisp fall-like air. And along came a grasshopper and promptly ate a spider. I watched it and it watched me. It was sort of a stare-off. I wondered if it would stick around for me to grab my camera. He chirped and ate. And I saw something out of the corner of my eye.
What was it, you ask? A mouse! A friggin mouse came running up our steps right up to the step below where my feet were! As long as I have lived here, I can't get used to the "wildlife". I swear you'd think I actually lived somewhere rural. I jumped up (clearly scaring off the creepy grasshopper) and shrieked like a little girl!
