Two toads and three mice so far; toads released, mice not so fortunate. I should probably put one of these traps in the attic.

A new month in some ways feels like a small new beginning. An infusion of cash to take care of business and hopefully have money left at the end of the month. There are job openings for part-time work, and I'm thinking about it for the holiday season.

The village has been doing some paving work (painting a sealant over the existing asphaltic concrete) so I haven't been able to drive up to the recycle bins. I need to make that trip soon.

This week I'll start the dog training to the Invisible Fence, now that she's getting a sense of this household. She sits until I tell her to eat (though if I don't put her on a leash she'll try to dive into one of the other bowls, so we're not perfect yet) and she's walking calmly. She's wearing the Gentle Leader head collar. I figure one thing at a time gives her little brain time to adjust.

I'm starting my holiday shopping, making practical but interesting choices, and spreading the expense out over the next three months. And I need to push more eBay items out there for people online shopping for the same reason.
