There's nothing like heading outside to do my morning rounds, and being greeted by so many kitties! It's going to be hard to tell those tabbies apart. 😀 Ghost Baby even made an appearance this morning. She is very shy and skittish, so I didn't try to move any closer to get a photo. My … Continue reading Ghost Baby appears, and that’s a LOT of dill!
I just got back from doing my evening rounds. The kibble trays were empty, so I had a whole crowd of kitties hanging around the sun room door. Even Rosencrantz was there this time, and she let me pet her. Nosencrantz let me pet her, too. The surprise, however, was when I saw an orange … Continue reading Look who’s back!
Today is likely to be the last hot day of the year. As I write this, we are currently at 26C/79F, with the humidex at 30C/86F. We are expected to reach 28C/83F with the humidex making it feel like 31C/88F. We are supposed to get a couple more days in the mid to low 20's … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: still growing!
Would you look at this adorable face! Yes, Nosencrantz allowed me to pet her again this morning! She still won't let me walk up to her to pet her, but only lets me pet her at the food tray, but she doesn't quite run away, either. Elevator butt. 😀 Gosh, she looks so much like … Continue reading Kitty noses
I got to give Nosencrantz full body pets this morning! She hadn't even started eating yet when she let me pet her - and she was purring! Then she joined her Grandma Butterscotch for breakfast. 🙂 Do you see that orange over on the far right? That's Rolando Moon. She's still around! It looks like … Continue reading Morning kitties and morning harvest
Today was dry enough that I could work on cutting up the dead tree that had finally fallen, thanks to recent high winds. This time, I could use power tools! I used my baby chainsaw (aka: cordless pruner), with it's 4" blade, to trim off branches, then a reciprocating saw, with a 12" blade to … Continue reading Clean up: salvaging logs, and bonus clean up
Heading out to do my morning rounds is pretty awesome these days. ALL of the kitties come running! I even got to give Nosencrantz full body pets - but only while she was eating! Toesencrantz started to come close, but she was too nervous with me being so close, and kept going away. So I … Continue reading Morning kitties, and wayward vegetables
Rolando Moon is back! We have not seen this lady in ages! And she is HUNGRY! The poor thing is so skinny. In the photo, you can even see the hollows near her hips. She has always been a big, beefy cat. This is the thinnest we have ever seen her. When my daughters saw … Continue reading She’s back!
It has remained too damp to try cutting wood, so I worked on a few other things today. One of them was to start getting the remaining chimney blocks out of the old basement, to where they will be set up for next year. The blocks themselves are not too much of a problem. I … Continue reading Little by little, and a Crespo surprise
We were having a lovely rain when I headed out to do my morning rounds. Though we have been getting the odd showers for the past while, things were still starting to dry out. With the high winds yesterday, I actually watered the old kitchen garden, when I noticed all the beet greens were wilted. … Continue reading Unexpected harvest, and other things
