NaBloPoMo Day 22: ants attack

Yesterday i discovered a couple of ants in the living room. I know very well that there are never just a couple of ants but I wasn’t prepared for the army of ants marching behind the couch, to a sticky spot under a side table and then up the edge of the rug towards the trash can. Because of that line of ants my living room now looks like this.

I keep spraying them with a mixture of vinegar, water and dish soap or with Orange Guard but they keep coming back. I also sprayed Orange Guard on the outside of the house, along the edge of the glass door with little success. I am bigger and smarter but I can’t keep them from getting in! Very frustrating.

Speaking of little success, I unmolded my bathbombs today. They are cute but crumbly. I think I should have waited a bit longer.

S used some in his bath tonight. I think I see the advantage of one big chunk instead of small pieces: the big chunk fizzes longer. Stefan definitely found them entertaining and asked if he could use more tomorrow. I ended up with some of the “mystery balls” from the previous fizz fest which I was unable to attend. I might try one of those in my own bath. I normally shower but these things are tempting! I definitely want to make some more.
