A few more steps forward, and today’s critters

Well, I got a couple of things accomplished to move us forward today.  This morning, I had a consultation with my lawyer about the Co-op situation.  I’ve been consulting with a lawyer about their actions against me for some time, but I really thought that would be over with, now that we’re no longer living there.  *sigh*

The next thing was certainly more positive.  I had to go in to town for a prescription refill for my husband today and FINALLY remembered to grab the information the pharmacy needed to be able to transfer my prescriptions from our old pharmacy over.  I could have done it by phone, but just never remembered during business hours.  I haven’t been taking my meds since I ran out before Christmas.  Reduction in stress meant I was already reducing my doses, anyhow.  My goal is to get off them completely, but with the Co-op BS still hanging over my, that’s going to be a bit more difficult.  Still, any progress is better than no progress!

Today was baking day for the girls, and this time they made “piggies in a blanket” by wrapping ropes of our usual sourdough bread around hot dog wieners and baking them.  It works well for a treat every now and then. 🙂

With how warm it’s going to be for the next while, the girls and I are planning on getting things moved out to the shed again soon.  Which means back to packing up more of my mother’s things that we’ve been ignoring until we could actually get them out.  If all goes well, we’ll finally get 3 more dressers out of the way (my parents seemed to collect dressers!), and once a weird little nook beside the old kitchen is clear, we can FINALLY move the cat litter out of the corner of the dining room and into its permanent spot!  We’ll be able to clear out some stuff that got shoved into the sunroom, too – it’ll be nice to be able to open the door all the way again, when we go in for the cat kibble and deer feed.  Once spring has reached a point that everything is dry outside – at least near the house – we will empty the entire room, clean it out and set it up to suit our own uses.  I have a few ideas the room can be used for, along with just enjoying the room itself.  My dad used to love sitting in there.  His walker is still there.  I’ll be hanging on to that, just in case.  There have been more than a few times when I’ve wished I’d had one handy for my own use, given how my knees and metatarsals tend to dislocate unexpectedly.  That’s always fun.  Not.

Meanwhile, I also got some more critter pictures, including some of the deer before we spooked them by going outside to drive to town.

The first of the twins came running in, full bore, then its sibling ran over, and finally Mama came in, head going in all directions, checking for safety.  I’m so happy the twins are comfortable enough here to come running in like that, though I imagine their lack of caution is giving Mama the deer equivalent of a few grey hairs!

I’m also happy that they have come to know our home as a place they can come to regularly for some food.  Watching them is one of the highlights of my day.

This female grosbeak was not a very cooperative subject, but I did manage to get a couple of good shots of her.  She was very busily eating something off of the spruce tree she’s in.  I’m not sure what.  It’s not like there are any seeds for her to pick at, this time of year.  She certainly found something to eat in there, though.

I love that little head twist I got in this photo.

This next one was another happy accident.

Sometimes, it’s the “bad” photos that are my favourites. 😀
