Bad Dung Shui…

For the past several months…a bird or birds…have taken to roosting above the column of my tiny front porch…actually…it’s more of a stoop than a porch…not even room for a chair…but…I digress…

Anyway…said bird(s)…have been leaving behind…some…foul fowl droppings…

I first noticed the problem during the late winter…the hose was still disconnected to prevent freezing…so…I carried hot water outside…poured it over the post and used the outside broom to scrub it clean…I was pretty proud of myself…

Only to find bird droppings a week or so later when I went out the front door…I don’t use it often…I assumed that I had missed a spot…and I waited a few days until it was warm enough to connect the hose…I blasted it…making sure this time that I got it all…

Only to find bird droppings a week or so later when I went out the front door…

Hmmm…

By this time…Bertha…is laughing her head off at me…how…could I possibly think that cleaning up the evidence…was gonna stop the problem…

I dunno…it seemed like a good idea at the time…

Of course…she then says it reminds her of my life…of the times when I cleaned up mess after mess…without actually solving the problem…always surprised when it happened again…

Guilty as charged…definitely something to contemplate…but…first I have bigger fish to fry…like…a bird in the bush…beats…two on the porch…

PS…I won’t even go into all that…Bertha…said about the feng shui of having poop on my stoop…best left for another blog…

The Trouble with Dust Bunnies…

This weekend…I got a wild hair…or…hare…to clean house…and…while I didn’t think it had been that long since I had cleaned…the exploding dust bunny population…begged to differ…

Of course they have their favorite hiding spots…under the king-size bed is a hands down favorite…so that I have to lie flat on my stomach on the floor in order to round up some of the feistier bunnies…under the dresser…with its scrolled bottom…leaving just enough space to allow conniving bunny entry…too small for the Swiffer vac…and yet visible from the contemplation chair…

Oh…who am I kidding…they were everywhere…in the closets…behind the toilets…it seemed that I’d no sooner eradicated one nest…than two more appeared…

Bertha…commended my efforts…no…she didn’t help…but she did say…that according to Feng Shui…cleaning makes way for more to come into my life…so…it will be interesting to see what shows up…hopefully…not more dust bunnies…although…I think I just saw one sneaking under the desk…

Here…Bunny…here…Bunny…come to Mama
