With the kittens getting more mobile, it was time to clean up the sun room as much as we could. Moving out the furniture to wash the concrete floor is not in the cards while we are using it as a kitten maternity ward, but I definitely needed to move things around so I could … Continue reading Cats, cats, everywhere, cats!
A bit more progress on the garden today; my daughters used some pieces of the trees that were taken down to edge the area we mulched yesterday.
