The war with the ants continue to rage in my kitchen. The current battleground is the range hood. I have no idea what they want there -- it's clean, no crumbs, no grease. I keep blasting them with peppermint oil but they will not be deterred. The other day I oiled my cutting board with some almond oil only to come back to the kitchen a half hour later and find it COVERED, as in almost solid black. Who knew???? Needless to say, the kitchen has to be kept almost sterile -- hard to do with a 2- and 3-year old in the house...
As I was typing that, I got bit by a mosquito.
Alas, though, not all insects are evil, ugly, and bad. I found this guy climbing up my kitchen cabinet a while ago. I took him outside to a happier life among the natives.
Alex said, "Hey, just like in the movie!" I think she is thinking of Cricket on the Hearth, a Christmas movie she once saw. Not exactly like that honey.
