It's been a while since I updated on the status of Little Braveheart, aka Tissue, now that she has been brought indoors. For the first while, she hid out in the basement. She began to emerge more often when the cats were given their evening treat of wet cat food. My daughters would, whenever possible, … Continue reading A little Tissue
There was quite a crowd of kitties this morning! There are 12 cats in this picture. Happily, Rolando Moon is still hanging around, busily hissing at any cat that comes near. We haven't seen Creamsicle in a while, though. I hope he is all right. The cat butt sticking out of the entry is a … Continue reading Progress: sun room door and cat kibble shelter
This afternoon, with the help of a daughter, we hung the replacement door back up onto the newly painted frame. We lined the hinges up with where they were before, except further in as far as we could go. Just to be on the safe side, my daughter held the door in place while I … Continue reading Progress: the sun room door is don… AAAAAAaaahhh!!!
I had to make an unplanned trip today. With feeding both indoor and outdoor cats, we go through the kibble (and litter!) pretty fast, and for the amounts we buy, it's actually worth making the trip to a Walmart of Costco. I didn't want to go to the city, though, so I made the trip … Continue reading I got Mooned!
Well, most of what I intended to get done today, happened. Plus, some unplanned stuff got done. 🙂 There was quite the crowd around for breakfast - and not all of them are in this photo! Most of them came out of the cat shelter, which was quite gratifying to see. They were hungry enough … Continue reading Almost to plan
This morning, after doing my morning rounds, I gave the sun room door frame a second coat of paint. Tomorrow, we hang the door back up. I had an audience. 😀 Also, while I was painting, I found that Nostrildamus has figured out to jump over the threshold after it's been painted! 😀 Meanwhile... Today … Continue reading Making hard crab apple cider: racking day – what happened? (updated: I found out!)
Along with the three types of garlic that came in, my daughters' flower bulbs arrived. The tulip collection included 10 bulbs each of Orca, Pinksize and Brownie, and 8 bulbs each of Black Hero, Pamplona and Vanilla Coup. There was also 6 bulbs of Gardenia Daffodil. So while I was having fun working in the … Continue reading Fall planting: the last of the flowers, plus other progress
I was so excited to finally get our bulbs this morning! Here are the three varieties of garlic we ordered. I appreciate how they add things to the label, like "best for roasting" , "rich, spicy flavour" and "big cloves with bold flavour". This is what 1 pound of each variety looks like. I wasn't … Continue reading Fall planting: the garlic is in!
With the chillier temperatures, it's really not a good time to be painting outdoors, so I made a point of starting right after doing my morning rounds. This way, it could have the whole day to cure, and I could decide on whether I wanted to do a second coat or not. The top is … Continue reading Sun room progress: door frame painted
Lats this morning I headed over to my mother's place with a turkey dinner to have lunch with her. On the way out, I spotted three sets of ears in the window of the cat shelter. Tiny sets of years belonging to the little kittens! I didn't dare go closer for a picture, though, because … Continue reading Thanksgiving lunch, mulch experiment and outside kitten progress
