I had to dash outside to do a meter reading, and the boys dutifully and adorably posed for me! Aren't they sweet? Doesn't Tuxedo Mask's eye look great? It's his left eye that was affected. That, however, is not my news. I finally got a call back from our vandal's lawyer. He was quite apologetic … Continue reading Some news
First, the fun stuff! My family is silly. Yesterday, I roasted some chickens for the next few days and, since I had to get up earlier this morning, I had and early supper. I set out a bowl for the "bones and oogy bits" and labelled it before going to bed. This is what I … Continue reading My family is silly, and 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
I was just heading back into the house after a quick version of my morning rounds, when I realized I was being watched. The Potato Beetle was all tucked in! For those who are new to this blog (welcome!), one of the things we did to help the yard cats over the winter, was create … Continue reading Sitting pretty, and an update on the unpleasant stuff
Of course, because I actually needed to get a good sleep because I had to head out early for court this morning, that meant I got almost no sleep at all! Only part of that could be blamed on the cats being destructive in the night. 😉 Amazingly, it got cold enough that, for the … Continue reading How things went this morning
Oh, my goodness! I'd been hearing on some of my local gardening groups that people were having a really bad time with grasshoppers. I knew it was just a matter of time before they moved North. And here they are. Do you see them on the gravel? All those specks? The dry grass is hiding … Continue reading The hoard, and a frustrating update
I am so thankful that things cooled down overnight. The garden beds were watered thoroughly last night, and didn't need to be done again this morning. It was all I could do to drag myself outside this morning. The past week or two has started to catch up to me, and the pain levels are … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: photo bomb!
Let's talk about pleasant things, first! Here is an adorable photo of Ginger for you. 🙂 Doesn't he look so sweet and peaceful? Not at all like the mischievous bugger I had to stop from trying to attack one of the trunks of the big jade tree in the living room! 😀 I did very … Continue reading Dragging on
Things went in unplanned directions this morning! But first, the fun stuff. 🙂 We have the handsome Ginger to greet us! He's been quite the character, and a lot of fun. 🙂 The outside cats were happy for breakfast. 🙂 We finally took the tarp off the top of the kibble house. We got some … Continue reading Catching up on this morning
Well, today - after three delays due to pandemic lock downs - I finally went to court for our restraining order application against our vandal. Only to find it was delayed for a fourth time. The frustrating part is that I called to confirm, just a couple of days ago. I was even put on … Continue reading So frustrating!
