Snake In The Grass

I took the puppy out this morning and found this snake in the grass. I have to admit, it gave me a fright because it’s the first snake I’ve seen here since we moved in almost five years ago! I’ve heard from the neighbors that there’s a really big snake that was sighted last summer, but I never had the luck in seeing it. Thank goodness for my lucky streak!

With luck continuing to be on my side, Buster was oblivious which was even better. I can’t imagine trying to wrangle a dangling snake out of his mouth in the wee hours of the morning before coffee! Who am I kidding – I would be screaming my head completely off and probably have a heart attack right there if that were to happen! I am not good with snakes at all!

Quickly, I refocused him to another part of the yard while I kept an eye on said snake. After he attended to his morning business, I daringly walked him near to where the snake had been. That’s when I noticed that the snake hadn’t moved from when I first saw it and realized that it was no longer alive. Whew. Sorry snake, but I breathed a huge sigh of relief.

I kept hoping that perhaps the hawk that dropped it (that’s my theory) would come back to retrieve it, but that never happened. All day I awaited one of the many predators outside to enjoy a free snack, I mean snake (haha), but unfortunately, none of them were interested in free take out. So I guess one of us will be removing him from the lawn sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, in the basement, another carcass was found, this time it was a mouse. What’s with Mother Nature today? Two wildlife deaths in one day? I wonder what the foreboding message is here. Any ideas?

When looking up dead snake spiritual meaning, I found this: A dead snake comes as an omen that somebody’s trickery, lies, and deceit has come to an end. Whether their attempts to manipulate or deceive you were successful or not may never be known. But, the dead snake’s omen endures regardless—you are leaving behind anxious times where trusting people was difficult, and now you are coming to a point in your life where you can count on and value the honesty on your inner circle.

When looking up dead mouse spiritual meaning, I found this: So a dead mouse in your house is not always an omen for something bad. It can be the message from the universe to pay attention, change the course of action, and see what opportunities there are coming your way. So when you find yourself facing difficulties in life or need guidance on how to live it better, look around for dead mice! They may have some important messages that will help you make decisions about your future.

Dead mice often see as symbols of death, especially when they appear out of nowhere or without any visible injury. Seeing dead mice is considered unlucky because it is indicative of someone dying soon – usually yourself! And this means that dead mice meaning should never be taken lightly because people do die suddenly from time to time even though there might not seem like anything wrong at first sight with them. Dead mice also represent people who have recently died so seeing one may mean that person has passed on and is no more in this world.

Others claim dead mice pieces are omens of a journey you need to undertake, and the dead mouse omen will be delivered by those who are either close or loved ones come to visit from the next realm. They want you to know they’re there for you, even after their physical death!

Some people believe dead mice represent journeys or new opportunities in life. So seeing them means your loved ones have come down from heaven with messages for you – either warning or welcoming news will soon surface! But before leaving, these spirits ask us never to forget about them because once you die out here, a lot of changes will take place.

In more general terms, dead mice mean someone’s death will soon come and it is time to fix things with the person because this might be your last chance!

Wow! Who know that there could be so many interpretations! Please feel free to deliver any messages you get from this post (if you get them) as I’d appreciate any insight you may have!

I hope you’re all having a lovely Saturday!

Shine On!

A Tentative Encounter With A Mouse

Well, the rental home is at it again in the animal department!  YIKES!  The other day I was out in the yard and out of the corner of my eye, I glimpsed a little mouse dart across the patio towards the house.

Stunned into silence (lucky for him because I can scream really LOUD!), I stood there unable to move.  Thank goodness he hadn’t run near me, but when he heard me take a step around the corner to see where he had gone, he froze in place.

We stared at each other for a good two minutes at only a three feet apart in distance.  I was thinking Aww, he’s cute!  Look at those ears – I wonder if the other mice refer to him as the Dumbo of mice!  They are so big!  Or am I imagining it?  Oh gosh, what’s he going to do?  Will he run at me and somehow run up my pants leg?  And he was probably thinking, Where in the world did she come from?  Oh no!  Where shall I go?

We were motionless, just staring at each other and I have to admit, I didn’t know what to do or how to stop the standoff.  I mean, I’m not a rodent fan, but he was cute.  Cute outside the house, yes!  But in the house, no way!  So I did what any other woman would do:

I picked up my foot and stomped it in place on the concrete.  You know, enough to scare him, but not to hurt him.  Just to get him to feel the earthquake (to him) vibration so that he’d skedaddle.  Lucky for me, he ran away and back to where he’d come from initially.  However, I felt badly because he must have been so scared that he wasn’t looking where he was going.  I heard a thump so I think he must have run into garage wall as he was scurrying away.

But yuck!  A mouse!  I wonder if he’s another one of my spirit animal totems?  Do you think I should look it up?

Shine On!
