The CIRCLE OF LIFE....(la la la)



Time: Yesterday afternoon

Place:Check out line at the Pet Store



A very macho looking man was buying a mouse in a cardboard box, probably to feed his snake.


Em, standing in line right behind him, was buying food for her two recently acquired pet mice.



***********************************************


I am off again for a few days. Going hiking at Mt. Baker with my friend, Kim. We are staying in a Bed & Breakfast with feather beds. We are NOT roughing it.

Nature is an exacting mistress. Tough and beautiful at the same time.

Have a good holiday!

sounds wonderful. The bed at the house we rented was the second worst I've ever slept on. And loud? Oh, god.

Let's hope that the circle of life doesn't extend to critters running through your feather bed. Enjoy!

I am not a roughing it sort of girl. My idea of roughing it includes cabins with doors, windows, screens and bathrooms.

And a place to plug in a radio. I'm pretty good other than that.

Have fun!

I was catching flies outside yesterday with the chilluns for Mister Frog (formerly Mister Tadpole). I don't think it's much of a parallel though as I've never heard of a pet fly.

Bed and breakfasts with feather beds is as close as I'll get to camping.... I am so NOT a nature girl

B&B's will make you a happy camper!

Maggie said...

Being a good outdoorsman or woman as the case may be, never ever requires roughing it. And I love love love a good B&B. So much more personal and quiet.

Have a great one. Hope the hike yields great fun and lots of pics.

Love the cycle of life, LOL.

Have a great trip, dear.

Yay not roughing it!

ms chica said...

I will toast to not roughing it in your honor.

We used to joke when I was a kid that roughing it was staying at the Bel Air Hotel.

Now I wouldn't go near the place. LOL

Still... good idea.. a hike and B&B sounds very nice! Hope you have a good time. :)



Peace,

Two tired hikers jumping on the beds!

Does hiking count as being idle? It seems to me that's "doing something." Hmmm.

Got the box and everything was intact. Thank you thank you thank you!! Have fun sleeping in those primitive beds. ;-)

Lynn said...

At least there are two mice who have been saved from being dinner. Enjoy your time away!

WNG said...

It takes all kinds I guess. Have a great time not roughing it and take pictures!

liv said...

Why are you always leaving me when I'm on the cusp of a nervous breakdown?! Have fun if you must!!

QT said...

I love mice as long as they are not pooping in my pantry - then we have problems.

I am a lovah of the North Cascades - if you will be in the vicinity of Bellingham, there is a pretty decent (for Bellingham) tapas place there called Flats Tapas. Oh yeah - you are a Bellingham guru already, I forgot!

Happy! hiking. Featherbeds sound awesome.

It's a snake-eat-mouse world out there.

Have a great hike, and please come by my place when you have a chance to pick up an award.

Have a safe and relaxing trip!

I love feather beds even though I'm allergic.

Joan said...

Lucky women...hiking AND feather beds...the perfect combination! Enjoy!

My Reflecting Pool said...

Sounds like a great time. Enjoy the hiking.

mcewen said...

Yes, from the sublime to the ridiculous.

I too would consider camping if it came with a feather bed!
Cheers
