I like when our Sunday day of rest turns out to be an actual day of rest! While doing my rounds this morning, I let Potato Beetle out of the sun room. Today, he ignored this personal food and water bowls in favour of the outside ones. I love how Nosy likes to just sit … Continue reading A quiet day

After getting teased with spring, the temperatures lurched back downwards last night. Also, I am SO tired of our intermittent internet. It took me forever to get any of my weather apps to load!

When I headed out to do their food and water, I opened up the sun room door, so Potato Beetle could come out. He was … Continue reading The gatekeeper of cuteness!

The long piece of insulation across the top is what had been blocking the opening on the back of the tank lid. You can even see the claw marks in it! Some nasty little beast managed to pull one … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: damage control
