Oh, I am extra glad we don't need to go anywhere, tomorrow! The -21C is not too big of a deal. The wind chill at -35C is a whole different story!! That's -6F with a wind chill of -31F, for those of you in the US. On the plus side, tomorrow's predicted high is now … Continue reading Wind chill
First, an update on our furry little patient. Tuxedo Mask is doing just fine. His eye is looking good, and he's been more active. The girls treat his eye in the evenings, then top up the kibble for the outside cats. He hasn't been trying to dash outside, but he has tried to get into … Continue reading Just in time!
I'm happy to say that Tuxedo Mask is looking so much better! This has become his favourite spot, under the ceramic heat bulb. Unfortunately, he's still not using the litter. My daughter took a look this morning, and it seems he's just going on the concrete beside the litter box. *sigh* At least the room … Continue reading Getting better
When I do my morning rounds, I'm in and out of the sun room quite a bit. We didn't want to take a chance of Tuxedo Mask dashing outside. Every time one of us used the bathroom, we could hear him through the window, crying to get outside! So my younger daughter took on Tuxedo … Continue reading Morning update
In my last post, I commented that it sounded like my daughter was finished cleaning the knobs that we found to fix the door to the old kitchen. I was wrong. She was down in the basement, using the buffer in my Dremel kit on the knobs! She just took this project right over, and … Continue reading Getting all knobby
The delay we had as we prepared to take Tuxedo Mask to the vet requires a bit of background explanation. For the past while, we have been going in and out of the house through the sun room. While I did a repair on the door of the main entry, where it was falling off … Continue reading Dealing with knobs
We had some maintenance related issues that prevented me from posting an update as soon as we got home, so I figured I'd just cut to the chase with the title! We were not able to catch Broccoli, though. She and Caramel just did not want to leave the cat's house, even when I started … Continue reading Tuxedo Mask is okay!
When heading out this morning, I made extra effort to take a closer look at Tuxedo Mask's red eye. He even let me pet him, while he was in the kibble house! The eye is still really gross and leaky, but looking a lot better than yesterday. Then I saw Broccoli. Who also has a … Continue reading Eye update
No, this is not a picture of a troubled eye. This is a picture of part of the lettering on our new sign that I noticed when I was switching the memory card on the trail cam. The paint on several letters is peeling away! My guess is that the reflective paint on top of … Continue reading Eye trouble
I was really excited to find Heritage Harvest Seed. First because it is a company from Fisher Branch, Manitoba. They are even further north than we are. Which means we can be confident that anything we order from them will grow here! Also, they specialize in rare and endangered seeds. I love going through the … Continue reading Our 2022 garden seed order: Heritage Harvest Seed
