I had an unusually glorious time killing numerous ants in my house this morning. And by numerous, I mean, hundreds. They were plotting and planning around the hearth of the fireplace, no doubt chased in by the monsoon we've been having over the past year weeks. There were too many and the task was overwhelming, so I did some plotting and planning of my own. I retrieved the pancake syrup from the pantry and poured 2 small puddles on the hearth. Soon, every ant in a 10 mile 3 foot radius was lapping it up. Squish.

I do not normally enjoy smooshing God's creatures.

I hope no one smooshes me.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one being invaded by ants over the last week. Noah floated by my house gathering the animals two by two this morning.

LOL! I guess I'd rather have ants than spiders.

Yuck. But good idea with the syurp.

We have ants too. What is up with that? I'm glad it's not only our house is that is issue-fied with ants! Must be spring.

It's funny, I also keep least its only ants, not spiders or cochroaches (like we had in tulsa)!
