Please Read, I Need Help With Wax On My Quilt!!

I received one of those candles that has the light bulb in it and you place the wax cubes on top.  I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and was just thinking how much I really love this.  It makes the house smell sooo nice.

Well, I went to move it for Thanksgiving and boy did I get a surprise.  I had it sitting on one of my good quilts and apparently, the wax melted down over the lid or else it has a crack in it or something.  I have a big wax spot now on my quilt.  Here is a picture, you can see the dark spot.

Does anyone have any suggestions on getting this wax out of my quilt.  It went all the way through the quilt.  I just hasn't been my week!!  I would sure appreciate any help!!  Cindy

Something Is In My Flower Pot! - Continued.......

Well, guess what!  My husband got home and opened up the garbage bag and nothing was in there.  Now I know I am not crazy, there was something in that plant.  It probably jumped out when I was trying to get the garbage bag over it.  Good thing I did not know this all day!

I didn't really feel like cooking after that, I just felt like everything was dirty.  Who knew where this little mouse, or what ever it is, could of been.  Did he walk on my kitchen counters?  I wiped everything in the kitchen down with clorox wipes before I started cooking.

My hubby said it was possible it could be a mole and that it bore down into the dirt of the flower pot to hide.  My plant looks O.K., so we put it in the garage.  I guess we will keep it out there for a few days.  We are getting ready to go to bed and he set a trap in the dining room to see if something is in the house. 

I always set my table the night before Thanksgiving and then throw a sheet over it.  Well, not this year.  I could just see that mouse walking across my dishes and then we would be eating off of them.  Now I will have to add that to my list of jobs in the morning.

You would think that we live out in the country, but we don't, we live in the city.  Last year we had a problem with tree frogs getting into the house.  That is just as bad, I am cleaning and a frog jumps out at me.  I think we finally found out how they were getting in.  They were coming in through the fire place.  One morning we came downstairs and four of them were jumping around in the house.  I guess it could also be a frog in the plant.  Just wish we could see what it is.  Oh well, maybe we will have something in the trap in the morning.

No nothing in the trap.  I looked at that bag several times during the day and the garbage bag was moving, I thought sure there was something in there, I guess it could of been the wind.  My husband got home when I wasn't there and opened up the bag.  I wish I could of watched to see if anything got away when he was not looking. 

Now what do I do, is it gone, is it still in the house?  My husband will be home for a few days, but I just know it will show up on Tuesday when he goes back to work.  That is always my luck!

Something Is Moving In My Flower Pot!!!

I got up this morning at around 4:30am.  This is my usual time.  My husband has already left for work.  I am in the refrigerator getting ready to make some breakfast and I hear this rustling.  I turn and look into the dining room and my plant in front of the window is dancing all over the place.
Something is in my plant eating!! 

Now I can tell you, nothing upsets me more than something being in my house.  I ran to the phone and called my husband and said, you have to come right back home, something is in my flower pot.  Now we have gone through this before and he knows how I am.  He says, "Cindy, I am half way to work and I have already driven 40 miles, you are going to have to take care of this yourself.  Be brave and go in and see what it is.  I say,  Yah Yah blah blah, I will just do that.  We hang up the phone and I decide just to go over to my daughters house until he gets home later today.  Then, it dawns on me, today is the day before Thanksgiving.  I am having Thanksgiving at my house and I need to cook all day!
What am I going to do?  I am sick to my stomach now, I certainly can not cook with something in my house.  We caught two mice down in the basement over the last week and I just bet that is what is in there.  Well, I tip toed into the dining room and turned on the light.  That did not faze him, he just kept right on eating.  Then I got the flashlight and tried to see what it was while standing in the kitchen and could not see anything.

I then decided to see if I could throw a garbage bag over the plant and take it outside.  That is exactly what I did, I throwed the garbage bag over the plant and pulled the ends shut.  Then I put that into another garbage bag and tied the end shut and put it on the front porch.  I then pulled my pumpkin over and placed it on the end of the bag.  It will now set there until my husband gets home and he can open it up and see what is inside.  My plant is probably ruined and I have had that over 20 years, but I don't care, I want that animal out of my house!!  I called my husband back and told him my heart was beating so fast, I will probably have a heart attack.  He said he was very proud of me for being so brave!!  Yah Yah blah blah!!  I still think he should of turned around and came and got it!!  Here is a picture of my bag.



To be continued tomorrow!  What is in that bag!!
