Ferdinand saying hello. The deer doesn't seem sure what to make of him.
Brrr. As I write this, we are at -29C, with a wind chill of -39C. Nasty! Last night, we made sure to top of the outside cats' water bowls with warm water before heading to bed. This picture is how I found the sun room water bowl, this morning. The cats were able to keep … Continue reading Chill
One thing about the cold temperatures we've been having; we're drinking a lot more tea! While there are a few favourites we try to keep on hand all the time, the girls and I also love to try new teas. Sometimes, though, the price tag that comes with some of the ones we'd like to … Continue reading Taste Testing Tea
Okay, I'm being only slightly sarcastic with that title... 😉 The cold snap continues, and is supposed to continue for about a week. The above picture was taken a few days ago, on the last milder day, just before we headed into town to get to the pharmacy before the weather got worse. The camera … Continue reading Fun times…
Beep Beep really likes that platform feeder. Definitely the one we see up there the most often (the next photo is taken on a different day). One day, she had company!

If -30C doesn't mean the cold snap has already started, I don't think I'm looking forward to tomorrow at all! As it is, we're supposed to hit temperatures of -28C tonight, and wind chills of -39C. … Continue reading Tomorrow?
Since switching up rooms, I have come to appreciate the view in my new office space. I've got my desk against the north wall, which means I can see out the window with my peripheral vision. Turns out, it's pretty active out there! Every now and then, some motion catches my eye, and I look … Continue reading My new view, and warmed up – for a bit
It's always funny to see the deer and cats interacting. There is also a cat on the bird feeder that the deer is looking at. Meanwhile, Slick is keeping his paws warm by sitting on a pile of feed. Eventually, the deer wanted the feed he was sitting on, which was a bit more than … Continue reading Critter of the Day: coming closer
I'm pretty sure the cats go up on the platform feeder as much to keep their paws warm, as to go after the birds. Beep Beep stayed up there for probably and hour or two, the day these were taken. Snoozy girl.
