Yesterday, looking at the weather radar, I had expected that we would catch the edge of a weather system that was being pushed up from the southeast. Which is what usually happens. Instead, the system ended up going right over us, and we had heavy rain all day and most of the night. We are … Continue reading Bee rescue, and new sign started
Oh, what fun! I got the chipper assembled, and we've tested it out. Here's how it went. This is after lifting the box off, and removing the bubble wrap around that biggest chute. It was deep in that chute, under other stuff, that I found the instruction booklet. Which included detailed instructions on how to … Continue reading First day with the chipper!
I am so excited!!! Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day, and WOW! do I have a wonderful gift to be excited for! A few days ago, I wrote about a proposal I'd made to my mother. Instead of spending thousands of dollars on a garden shed we do not yet have a prepared space for, I suggested … Continue reading Feeling chipper today!
We used to have big Christmas bows on our main gate. When they started wearing out last year, I wanted to replace them but it was a time when we weren't allowed to buy "non-essential" goods during Christmas. So my daughter and I used things we had to make a wreath. Since there was only … Continue reading A bit more colour
Yesterday evening, I was able to head out and finally work on the dead tree that's stuck. While I was getting tools out of the sun room, I discovered I was being watched! They were not only watching me, but they did NOT run away, and one of them looks almost relaxed! I'll take that … Continue reading Clean up: dead trees, and I’m being watched!
Well, we've done as much as we can with the outhouse for now, and I think it's turned our rather well! The first order of business was to paint the shelf boards. The longer one was the one that got painted on one side, and the edges, yesterday. I decided to paint the remaining section … Continue reading Clean up: our “second bathroom”, done for now!
I'm a sucker for punishment. The plan was to head over to the outhouse, quickly do a second coat of paint until we ran out, then get back to working on the bread baking. Instead, I kept adding more things to do, and by the time I got inside, I had to get my daughter … Continue reading Clean up: our “second bathroom”, inside and out
Today, my husband was finally up to heading outside to help me sight the crossbow. I found an excellent spot for a shooting range and got us set up. The instructions said to sight at 10 yards, then micro adjust at 20 yards. I pre-measured the distance on some paracord, then used flags to mark … Continue reading First shot!
Well, this is one way to tell the temperature are getting chilly at night. And that I need to change the batteries in the newer trail cam. Until the camera warms up enough, it starts recording things in pink! Also, during night shots, the infrared flash stops working and the files have a red law … Continue reading In the pink!
We got some rain last night, then this morning we woke to this incredible, dense fog. It was 10:30am when I took this photo, and it was still so foggy, I could feel it on my skin as I walked around! So gorgeous. The Re-Farmer
