Evening walkabout and… that makes six

Well, today's trip into the city turned out to be decidedly unpleasant. We usually plan the order of stores we go to around whether or not we're getting fresh or frozen food. Which means Walmart is usually the first stop (after having breakfast or lunch somewhere) and Costco the last. Today, our first stop was … Continue reading Evening walkabout and… that makes six

Morning kitties and night time views

Gotta check out the little ones! That tiny little nose peeking out from under an orange kitten is just hilarious. Beep Beep's kittens have clearly had no problem absorbing Butterscotch's baby into their creche! πŸ˜€ With the more pleasant conditions out, I will be starting to do my evening rounds again. Last night was quite … Continue reading Morning kitties and night time views

Progress: sun room door and garden stuff

I got a little reminder today, of why I need to start using the sun room as a greenhouse. The cats have already knocked the mini-greenhouse over once, and despite our best efforts at making sure the bottom of the plastic is pushed under the frame, the cats are determined to get in. Especially Susan! … Continue reading Progress: sun room door and garden stuff

Taking “finding strange things” to a whole new level

While doing my morning rounds, I decided to go into a couple of the sheds and look around. The first one is among those that is falling apart and really needs to be torn down. There are many holes in the roof, so the dirt floor is quite wet and muddy inside. We would need … Continue reading Taking “finding strange things” to a whole new level
