Scrambling to catch up, and a court update

Today turned out to be a lovely day. Sunny, and at a high of 8C/46F, warmer than predicted. It made it very hard to believe that there is a storm and blizzard coming our way, starting tomorrow! While my phone's weather app has been saying a blizzard was coming since yesterday, it was only until … Continue reading Scrambling to catch up, and a court update

Manual labour is good therapy, and a court update

I headed out early today, for my court date with our vandal. It's been a year, minus a day, since my first court date regarding my application for a restraining order was scheduled. It was a very, very long day. No, it's not resolved. But before I get into that, I will talk about something … Continue reading Manual labour is good therapy, and a court update

More fall clean up, prowlers, and there’s a stranger in town!

While it was a warm day today, it wasn't quite warm enough to work on garden beds, so once the outhouse floor was done, I focused on doing a number of small jobs around the yard.

One of them, however, did remember to get before and after pictures, and recently passed them on to me. So here is some of the cleanup … Continue reading Back Tracking a Bit, and Looking Ahead

2022 garden preparation: fixing up the tomato bed

Today, I took advantage of the lovely, warmer than forecast weather we are having, to clean up and redo the tomato bed. Here is how it looked when I started.

Our “second bathroom” – little details

While things were still pretty wet from rain this morning, I used some of the stuff I picked up yesterday and worked on the outhouse. The chain latch was something we already had in the basement, and the handle was something I picked up yesterday. I got a second one that I put on the … Continue reading Our “second bathroom” – little details
