With our temperatures hovering around freezing, we're getting things melting in some areas, and freezing in others. Which leaves us with this, in front of the sun room. 😀 We have one of those extended pole shovels designed to remove snow from a roof while standing at ground level, and I used it to try … Continue reading Finding more storm damage
Oh, it was so nice to see how the driveway looked in daylight! There is more than enough room to back out of the garage and turn around - and even room for other cars to pull in and park. So awesome! Though we do still have a bit of clearing to do in front … Continue reading Cleared!
Well, so much for trying to support the sunflower in the old kitchen garden. We had high winds again this morning, and the last of the three flower stalks on the remaining sunflower in the old kitchen garden finally broke. It was actually still upright when I came out this morning, but by the time … Continue reading Morning harvest, and another one down
While doing my evening rounds, I figured it was time to get a recent photo of our found object "art" display. 😉 The table itself was dragged out from under a fallen tree while clearing the edge of the spruce grove. We weren't able to get at it until the old wood pile was cleaned … Continue reading Stuff we’ve found, and things to fix
We've had ourselves a chillier morning today! Light snow, and bitterly cold winds from the south is what greeted me this morning, when I went out to do my rounds. Kitty loaf is not impressed. It does look pretty, though! Switching out the micro disk cards on the new trail cam has gotten somewhat easier. … Continue reading Delivery Fail, and coming unhinged
Okay. I think this is going to be a difficult post to write. To recap for our new followers (Welcome! Thanks for joining us!); about a year and a half ago, my husband ended up in the emergency room for what turned out to be pulmonary edema. He spent the night in the hospital, was … Continue reading Broken. Like our system
One thing about the new washing machine taking a while to come in (still no word on a new delivery/pickup date!) is that moving the old machine kept getting delayed. Yesterday, my younger daughter wrestled it out of the house, and we "walked" it over to the junk pile. Unfortunately, it was impossible to completely … Continue reading Finally out
While doing my rounds, before going to the city, I went to the usual spots to see if any more branches had come down during the night. None had, but when I reached the fence near the pump shack, I heard something moving on the metal table beside it. It took me a while, but … Continue reading New baby sighting, and washer update
*sigh* We checked the washing machine. Sort of. After shifting the dryer, then moving the washing machine, my darling daughter squirmed her way behind it to see what she could see. Besides cat fur dust bunnies from hell and miscellaneous objects that somehow made their way under the washer and dryer... ...and the round plastic … Continue reading Well, crud. Again.
Not too long ago, I wrote about my daughters installing a new kitchen faucet. One of the issues was, we have no shut off valves. There is one main shut off valve that shuts off water to the entire house. Today, that became a problem. One of my daughters had gone into the basement to … Continue reading Well, that sucks… and why is that there?
