Yesterday, things cooled down enough it was actually worth opening up my window. There is still a problem with that. The three amigos and their stuffed companion! For some reason, the cats really, really like to attack the bugs through this window screen. I try to keep on top of it, but they've managed to … Continue reading A little bit of progress
