Most of the kittens are pretty easy to describe. We've got the tuxedo, Doom Guy. The grey tabby, Corvo. Two orange tabbies, Jim and Bob. Then there are the calicos. Or are they torties? Or something else entirely? It doesn't help that one of them is double-sided. Here is Rosencrantz (or Guildenstern), side A. This … Continue reading Double-sided
A new sourdough. And it has a name. I put a Post-it note on the cover, with the date I started the starter. This is what I found added to it, this morning. 😀 Our girls are too funny! The Re-Farmer
Seeing our furry visitors, it reminded me that, when I was out in the yard earlier in the day, I had noticed the cat kibble was almost gone. So I decided to top it up for the night. We keep the kibble in the Old Kitchen now, so those were the doors I went through. … Continue reading Gotta be careful!
I got called over to check out the skunk, from the living room window. When I got to the camera, I could tell something had his attention. Oh, that's what it was... Checking each other out! Then I saw the other one... And my husband kindly shut off the TV so the camera could focus … Continue reading Furry visitors
While checking around the yard, to see if any other branches came down during the gusts of high winds we had yesterday, I came to the remains of our straw bale. Beep Beep and her boy, taking advantage of something warmer than the ground! 😀 Smart kitties. The Re-Farmer
During the summer, as my mother's grapes ripened, I gathered them and froze them. I didn't even bag them; just put them in bowls and stuck them in the freezer. We've been nibbling on them, little by little, ever since. 😉 I had originally planned to put them through the juicer, but for the amount … Continue reading Small Batch Grape Jelly
While out and about this morning, the kittens were out in full force. Including Doom Guy, who can't seem to figure out that, if he wants me to pick him up, he has to be in FRONT of me, not behind... I'm going to have little puncture marks, all up the back of my legs, … Continue reading Not sure how to fix this…
This is what we see, in varying configurations of floofs, when we look out our bathroom window. 😀 The Re-Farmer
What a gorgeous day we had today! We actually hit 19C! I don't expect we'll hit above 10C again, for the rest of the year. It'd be nice, but I'm not going to count on it! Which meant a final run around the yard. I took out the string of lights that wasn't working, then … Continue reading Productive
While working in my office this morning, our Mama cat started getting all agitated, and going up to the window. That's when I realized I was hearing a low growling noise from outside. This is what we saw. It's a dad-cat standoff! No wonder our Mama wasn't happy! I've never seen this cat before, though … Continue reading Standoff!
