Tag Archive: Ants


We have an ant infestation. They are after the cat’s food. I told him to eat all his food, or get rid of the ants. He hasn’t done either. So, I threw all his food (in his bowl, not in the plastic container which so far, is ant free) in the toilet and flushed. Then I put the bowl, which had cat food ‘dust’ and ants back on the floor, thinking I would take care of it in the morning. In the morning, the bowl was clean and the ants were gone. I could not imagine what had happened, had the ants eaten all the crumbs, or did the cat? Did the cat eat the food and the ants? Well, I put food in his bowl, and this afternoon when I got home the ants were back.

So I took a nap. Not a long one, just about 45 minutes. Then I went upstairs and ate, then went to Allsport, then went to Target and got ant traps! I also got some WD-40 because the door knob is sticking and the lock won’t lock all the way. I got another skort because they have finally made it to the clearance rack. And when those really nice tank tops make it to the 50% off rack, I will get one of them.

So the bowl is washed out, the floor is clean and the ant traps are in the wall. Hopefully no more ants.

One last comment, I have exercised 4 days in a row.

Nonny Nonny

Described as a feel good word, I kind of like saying it, Nonny Nonny. It’s from As You Like It. I keep saying I am going to read it but so far . . .

Today has not been the greatest of days. I stayed up late to finish Final Account. Another good book in the Alan Banks series. Then I got woken up early by my phone letting me know I got an e-mail from M.L. So I had to get up to check my e-mail to see what she said. Silly woman, spending time in the early a.m. to send me an e-card. Very sweet though.

Fell asleep on the train. Still having tummy problems that lead to a sore bottom. Have to take the Vaseline with me to the bathroom. Not bad though, nothing is bleeding right now.

This morning I had to throw out Butterscotch’s food again, covered in ants. I forgot to get ant traps at Target. I will have to remember to go tonight. I wrote a list in my phone, I need to transfer it to paper.

Shopping

Yesterday, Saturday, M., Gwen and I went to Woodbury Commons. We got there a little before 10 and got a good parking space. When we left, there was not a space to be found, getting in the car I felt like a prospector in the desert with the buzzards circling. I got a watch, a nightgown, two sports bras, a small white pocketbook and a purple dress. I had to get the dress in an 8. Designer clothes are usually cut small though and this one is extremely fitted through the waist. It is very bright purple. I can’t wait to wear it, but I might need to get a new bra.

Today Gwen needed more pictures for her photography class, she wanted to walk and get them though, so we walked to Asian Ginger so I could eat, then to Memorial Park, then to Ron’s for ice cream, then home.

Then I went to the gym, I really didn’t want to, so I had to force myself. I don’t feel any different now. I went to Target after to get hand soap, a new case for my contacts and chocolate. I forgot I also wanted to get ant traps. The ants are getting into Butterscotches food. I had to throw out the food in his bowl and clean the area with Lysol with bleach and now my hands smell even though I was wearing Nitrile gloves. I think that is how it is spelled. I think I better check. Well I didn’t check I switched loads and fed Butterscotch. I am not checking now, I am going to bed. I checked and corrected it.
