Ants and the New Year
I thought I would write a short message to my subscribers to welcome you to this New Year, this new Decade, 2020. For me the year started with an ant invasion. I have nothing against ants other than they should stay outside. But they have come inside which I dislike. I live on the second floor, so they must take quite a journey to get into my apartment. They come up from outside somewhere to the second floor just for a bit of crumbs or food that I might have in my cupboard.
The Ant Takeover
For three days I have been cleaning my cupboards and countertops, my oven and stove and every other place that I have seen ants congregating. The ants have had quite a party in my apartment. When I get one area cleaned up, the next time I check, they have moved on to a new area. It started with a line of ants going to the counter in my bathroom. After I cleaned the bathroom, the ants moved to the kitchen counter eating bacon grease. I got that cleaned, and they moved to the stove and found all kinds of tidbits to eat. After I cleaned the stove and oven, the ants moved to the exhaust fan above my stove. So I cleaned the oven hood, where else could they go?
From Message to Post
This message will most likely become a post on my website. I will continue writing it as a newsletter and sending it out as a newsletter but only as a test. If I ever get people to read my blog or to subscribe to my newsletter that would be great, it would then be fun to develop an online relationship with my readers. To know if anyone is reading my blog.
