Of course, what he’s actually doing is eating a seed, but I can pretend!
Our work was just beginning. We had almost an entire house to pack before we could have our own stuff delivered. But we muddled our way through and managed to survive it more or less intact! 😉
A year later, much work had been accomplished over the summer, and we were using what we learned over our first winter to try and solve some problems for our second.
Thankfully, we don’t have to rig anything up again this year!
Little by little, we’re working things out. 🙂
Who knows. A few more years, and we might have it all figured out. 😉
Having the deer visiting us regularly is one of the plus sides of the weather turning cold! They are so pretty. 🙂
So… the outside cats didn’t need much feeding this morning.
This is how I found things when I came in.
How none of that fell into the litter pans, I have no idea!
Also, we had company while I was cleaning up.
Could this be our culprit?Continue reading
Two years ago today, my older daughter and I started our drive out to the farm.
We were able to look back on it last year, with a different perspective. Mostly, just relieved that it was over, and in the hope we’ll never have to go through that again!
By this time last year, we were getting into the routine of living out here, and taking care of the critters.
Most of the cats that were regularly with us in that first year are gone now. Only Beep Beep and Butterscotch are still here, as they have been since while my father was still around. I found pictures of them from when I was able to come out for a visit in 2015.
Which makes me happy. My dad did love the yard cats!
This deer was very focused on the cat that was walking by.
Today was the day.

Two years ago, the movers arrived.
So began what was probably the worst move we’ve had.
Okay, so there may have been one other that was worse, but that was because we all came down with the flu and got so sick, I actually collapsed from illness and exhaustion. Which has never happened to be before or since.
But we didn’t have to deal with a moving company that time. They were supposed to make things better. Not worse! Having to spend hours in the van, with the cats, trying to keep our plants and fish from freezing didn’t help, either.
– and sometimes finding damage done by the deer that were visiting regularly!
All summer, the blue jays were making it hard for me to get their photos. It seemed they could tell when I was trying to focus on them and would fly off! They don’t do that so much, now that things are getting colder. 🙂
