My daughters and I regularly check the areas we planted things in the fall. Especially where we planted so many corms and bulbs. For those new to this blog (welcome! I'm very happy you're here!), last fall we planted 200 grape hyacinths in one area (day one, day two). In another, we planted about 100 … Continue reading Our 2021 Garden: luffa, Crespo squash, decisions made, and we have sproooooots!!!
It was a very gorgeous 9C/48F outside, so I took advantage of it to check some things out, beyond the outer yard. More specifically, I wanted to check out the dugouts. But first, I got accosted by a very affectionate - and still very round - Butterscotch. She really wanted attention, and even got me … Continue reading Looking for water
Last night, I introduced Ginger to a new toy. I'd crocheted an amigurumi squid, years ago, trying out a new pattern. When I realized we'd closed the other cats out for the night and Ginger had no toys in the room, I decided to see if he would like it. He did. Squidly is now … Continue reading Ginger Squid and general update
This morning, I walked into the living room and found seven deer outside our window! That is the most we've seen, all at once, since our first spring here. 🙂 Then I spotted them on the trail cams! I never saw all seven on the trail cams at once. They kept streaming across the road … Continue reading What a crowd!
Red poll, coming in for a landing!

They stayed there long enough that I found about a dozen files (stills and video) of them! Looking at the time stamps, they came to the driveway after visiting the house. … Continue reading It’s crowded out there!
Yesterday, Ginger discovered the joys of bedding being changed! The cats tend to react two ways when the sheets get changed. About half the cats see what's happening, and are all "YAY!!! IT's party time!" and promptly make it very, very difficult to make the bed. The others go into a panic and run away … Continue reading The Adventures of Ginger
All she needs is a crown!
Ginger finally got cooperative enough for me to get some photos of him. 🙂 He was very squirmy. He's like a weird, twisty rubber band!!! How the heck did he get his front leg like that?? 😀 Nicco wasn't too sure what to make of him. 😀 Can you believe she's about 2 months older … Continue reading Ginger and his big sister!
The weather system has finally weakened and moved on. Over the next while, we'll be slowing warming up, with a bit more snow predicted on the weekend (depending on which app I look at! LOL). With temperatures hovering only a few degrees above freezing during the day for the next while, we should have a … Continue reading Now for the slow warm up
