i am a hypocrite

Yep I am. I can no longer deny it. I, the woman who saves spiders and other bug life from human hierarchy. The same woman who rescued a mouse from the milner cabin on the august long weekend, has a house full of mouse traps baited and ready to slaughter. i feel bittersweet about this. We have thus far taken two mouse lives. Which leads me to my second hypocritical confession, the whole i am woman, hear me roar image, also fake. Sure i know i could get by with out man folk, well , minus the whole needing them to create more life, and i am not saying that i don't love men oh i do. But i claim to be a strong woman who can do anything He can do. But when it comes down to it, not so much. I could have emptied the traps, had i really needed to. And since jereme was off hiking a mountain all weekend, one would think that i needed to. But that is not the case when you have fine man friend folk who will drive over on a sunday morning, before even eating their breakfast to take care of the nasty-nasty for you. Thanks Zapf! Although, today i sucked up my ovaries and set the new traps. Go me! Here are some photos from the weekend not so long ago where i helped rescue the little vermin. have i mentioned the lovliness of the cabin before? LOVELY!!!

Ahem. I lived in the country. I had no problem killing chickens. None.

I have run next door to get my neigbour to kill a spider for me.

I have to say, I'm ok with this. Part of being strong is knowing the limits of your strength!
