Just a collection of pictures I took today. The inside orange babies watching an outside orange baby! This little buggers snuck into the sun room behind my back and got closed up in it! It wasn't until I came out to give the cats some treats that I heard her plaintive meowing. She had jumped … Continue reading Things I saw today
Oh, what a day this turned out to be. I'm looking at the time and wondering why it's not several hours later, because this day has felt much longer than normal! But first, I share the pleasantly unexpected thing. As I finished up my outdoor morning routine and headed for the house, I noticed something … Continue reading Unexpected
Like father, like son? Creamsicle decided to come and play this morning. I think it's pretty clear he's a daddy! 😀 I suppose it also explains why Butterscotch lets him hang around, but will chase Potato Beetle away. I don't know where she found the other daddies, but none of them were tabbies! 😀 While … Continue reading Generations
I needed to head into town today, and when I got back, the girls were just finishing planting the last of the bulbs we had. Bulls Eye Tulips. These have more finicky requirements. They are larger bulbs that need lots of sun, good drainage, and if we want them coming back year after year, deep … Continue reading Fall planting; Bulls Eye Tulips
The indoor cats were adorable today, too! Keith and "grandma" - the mama cat that moved out here with us - cuddling together for a nap. Keith, again, dropping back to sleep, even as he reached out to grab my phone while I took the picture! Our old mama cat is turning out to be … Continue reading Inside kitties, and a bit of a problem
It's looking really gorgeous out there! My mother's "living fence" has a row of hawthorns (you can see some of their berries) on one side, and a mix of caragana and oak on the other. I got a picture of a larger oak at the far end of the row of trees, with elms above … Continue reading Fall colours
It was a very photogenic morning today! Here are some kitten pictures for you to enjoy. 🙂 That one lighter orange kitten even let me pet him a bit, and the calico snuffled my fingers. 🙂 The bigger kittens wouldn't let me come anywhere near them, but it was good to see them all chowing … Continue reading So many kitties!
Today has been one of those write-off days. Yesterday, we hit 27C/80F. An unexpected result of that is, all number of house flies and other flying insects emerged from wherever they were slumbering in the previous cool, and got into the house. Which meant a night of cats making a ruckus while chasing bugs all … Continue reading Crab apple cider vinegar, fermentation progress
Last night, I came out of the house to find I had an audience, watching me. 🙂 Very attentively! When I came out this morning to refill their food containers, Braveheart came running right up to me - but not enough to let me pet her! 😀 Her brother, on the other hand, actually let … Continue reading A bit more kitten progress!
I needed to make a run into town today, and by the time I came back, my daughter had selected a place to start planting, and gotten started. She had selected Eye of the Tiger Iris, and I must say - Vesey's really missed an opportunity for a punny name! 😀 Eye-ris of the Tiger? … Continue reading Fall planting: iris
