If it stops raining today (and doesnít start again), I might be able to get the mower through the high grass again by next weekend. Until then, Iíll have to make do with other ways to get exercise. Today, after the rats went home, I ran the vacuum across the carpet. Believe it or not, rats can be kind of messy. It doesnít seem as if they care where they spray their stuff.

Running the vacuum doesnít take quite as much energy as pushing the mower, but itís just about as frustrating. I have to stop and stoop over and pick something up by hand even more often. But at least it doesnít get clogged up and stop altogether, the way the mower sometimes does. And I think the mess on the rug will come back sooner (rats or not) than the grass. Although, with the rain we had today, the grass will grow a little faster than it would have otherwise.

The rain had pretty much given up by this afternoon, but this morning when I went out it was coming down hard enough to discourage me from running any of the errands I had planned. It was enough to get to the post office and back. I had some banking I wanted to do, and Iíd already put my grocery shopping off when I flaked out on Friday, but it can all wait one more day. Well, itíll wait whether it wants to or not. Iím the decider.

Zebra and Eland.

The smell went away as soon as the rats did. Maybe I imagined it, but just in case I kept the front door open all afternoon. In spite of the rainy weather, it wasnít cold at all. Thatís how I know itís a spring rain, and not the beginning of a winter storm.
