As I trudged through the snow around our yard, there were a number of times I found myself pausing and just wondering... Why? Why is this here? How did it get here? What purpose did this serve? And I have no answers. Like a post turtle. You know it didn't get there by itself, you … Continue reading The Things We Find – outside
Recently, I was finally able to find a bag of rye flour. Of all the things I knew would be harder to come by after moving here, rye flour was not one of them! In anticipation of baking day, I got a rye sourdough starter going last night, using 2 cups rye flour, 2 cups … Continue reading Sourdough Rye Bread
Today warmed up considerably, so I took the time to tromp around outside and check things out - posts about that, to follow. In the process, I got to visit some of the friendlier outside cats... and...touch the Butterscotch. Butterscotch has been one of the more stand-offish of the outside cats, and usually stays … Continue reading Outside Kitties and… oh, no.
Things got busy quite early this morning. 🙂 After putting out more feed, the grosbeaks, redpolls and chickadees were in in full force. Then they all disappeared, en masse. Why? Hmmm. Could be the big orange Rolando Moon that came sauntering by. Followed by Nasty Crime Boy. Then Beep Beep. Butterscotch came by, too. For … Continue reading Out Our Window this Morning
In my search for the contact number to Vital Statistics, I found something better. It turns out you can fill out a Marriage Certificate Application Form online. It then needs to be printed out and signed, but one of the options to send it in is to scan the signed document and email it. Which … Continue reading One Step Closer
Getting any photos of Hungry Girl and Barbecue this morning was more difficult than usual. They were extremely nervous today, but I couldn't see why. There was also the issue of glare on the window, which you can see some of in the picture. Partly, I'm sure there must have been some cats going along … Continue reading Daily Deer, and marking an achievement
Critter pictures. Great for de-stressing. I didn't get any photos of deer today. In fact, the only time I saw them was when I scared them off, returning from one of my outings today. I just caught the sight of a flashing white tail, disappearing around the house. My husband sees them more, when the … Continue reading And now for something more pleasant
Finally sitting down to my first cup of tea today. That's right. It's been one of those days where I haven't even had tea until evening. 😉 Green tea with chamomile and honey. I'm definitely going to need me some chamomile!! Okay. This morning, I headed out to the post office, remembering that they close … Continue reading Are You Kidding Me?
As I write this, Butterscotch is still up in the spruce tree. For a while, Beep Beep came up and joined her. They were so adorable, snuggling up on the branch. It was too dark to get good pictures, though. Beep Beep has since come down, but not Butterscotch. Meanwhile, Hungry Girl and Barbecue came … Continue reading More Critter Pictures
Drove out to get the mail today. First, the good news. Our daughters now both have their new medical care cards. Yay! The bad news. My husband and I got our forms and photo copy of our birth certificates back. Two problems. They want a more legible copy of my husband's birth certificate. His had … Continue reading Un. Be. Lievable. Part Two
