Happy Three King's Day! Today is the Feast of the Epiphany, which is our last day of Christmas. After today, we start taking down our decorations. 🙂 It was another mild day today, so when I finished my rounds this morning, I decided to go ahead and dig out the fire pit. I considered breaking … Continue reading Happy Three King’s Day, and digging out the fire pit
We are having another beautifully mild day today! Just look at this image I got off one of the trail cams. What a gorgeous sunrise! So moody with the fog. I changed the batteries on the camera yesterday, so it's slightly out of position from where I want the motion sensors to be focused, but … Continue reading Second shopping attempt and, what the heck is going on?
I made it into the city today, to attempt our monthly shop. I am definitely running low on batteries right now. I hate shopping at the best of times. These days are not the best of times. But before I explain that, let's have some cuteness! How about some hugging kitties? The cats have a … Continue reading Low battery
We had ourselves a very pleasant surprise today! Company! Sort of... I got an email from my older brother, asking if he could swing by this afternoon. Considering that it's a 1 1/2 hour drive for him, this was a welcome surprise! I got his message after doing my morning rounds, which included changing the … Continue reading Clearing snow before it snows, and I think they’ve figured it out!
If all had gone to plan for today, I would be just arriving at my mother's right now, to help her with her grocery shopping. This morning, things were looking just fine out. Some of the cats still didn't want to go out in the relatively warm temperatures! 😀 Switching out the memory card on … Continue reading Stormy day
Before I catch up on things, I just had to share this photo. This is Little Braveheart, now known as Tissue, cuddling with "grandma". That is the protective foam insert that came with the new washing machine. Our old mama cat has claimed it as her favorite bed, but she doesn't mind a kitten joining … Continue reading Catching up
A few days ago, I wrote about doing this... Most of the sunflower stalks had been stripped of their leaves and tops, but the tallest ones were beyond the reach of the deer. I bent the stalks on each of those to bring the tops down. This morning, they all looked like this. They are … Continue reading Stripped
Today is the first Sunday of Advent. Leyendecker is undisturbed by human regulations and restrictions! 😀 Normally, our tree would have already been decorated, and the Advent wreath, with its candles, set up. It doesn't look like we'll be able to have a tree this year. The cats just seem to wait until we're not … Continue reading This is going to be an odd Christmas
First up, Happy Thanksgiving to all our visitors from the US! I hope you are having a wonderful day! 🙂 Today was my day to go into the city for our monthly stock up. I was really dreading it. I'm part of a local, private, online group where people around our province share where it … Continue reading Half shop, and bubble!
Today was the day I was to finally face our vandal in court, in regards to the restraining order I've filed against him. Nothing came of it. The court date was cancelled. I didn't know that, of course, so I did my rounds early and made the drive out. We've had some snow last night, … Continue reading Well, that didn’t work out
