Okay, before I show you what I found while picking chokecherries, I'll share with you why I am so super excited about it. When I was quite young, I spotted a caterpillar on the leaves of a crabapple tree. It was unlike any I had seen before. Not only that, but I found three more! … Continue reading I found a little friend! So exciting. 🙂
I woke up this morning, surrounded by cats, including one curled up on my belly. It was this one. Can I go back to sleep now? She barely woke up as I got her off, and was more than content to join a sleeping Susan, who's paws you can see on the side of the … Continue reading Sleepy kitties
What a lovely day today turned out to be! The area we have the picnic table set up for painting is near where the cucamelons are planted. After painting last night, the girls checked them out and spotted baby cucamelons! When I'd checked them earlier, they weren't even blooming. Of course, I had to check … Continue reading Cookout, cats and cucamelons – what a beautiful day!
As I catch up with things I wasn't able to post while our internet was down, I figured I'd start with some fun stuff! (Also, whatever technical problems killed off our secondary account is also affecting our primary account - but at least that one still gets a signal! We will get a call in … Continue reading Feline fun, and bonus critters
Some smiles to share with you! My daughter joined me this morning, to help with crowd control. Leyendecker promptly scaled her and settled on a shoulder. Saffron, on the other hand... ... claimed her spot, getting her way with sheer adorableness. 😀 Turmeric and Nicco, meanwhile, had themselves a wrestling match! Big Rig settled down … Continue reading Morning kitties
As usual, in my morning routine, I visited the kittens. David dashed downstairs to visit them, too. It's so funny to watch how he interacts with them! The kittens are quite happy to include him in their play, while he seems torn between "I wanna play, too" and "stay away from me, you strange creatures." … Continue reading Morning critters; a bird attack?
When visiting the kittens this morning, I was viciously attacked! By a Nicco! 😀 Saffron has one eye that is a bit gooby, so I took the time to clean and medicate it. Then, after they'd all had a chance to devour some wet cat food, they all went after my legs! They are tearing … Continue reading Morning smiles – and a surprise!
It's barely evening, but I think I'm done for the day! 😀 We had plans to go into the city so the girls could get some shopping done that we never quite get to when we do our monthly stock up. With that in mind, I started my morning routine early, starting with visiting the … Continue reading Today’s Evening Roundup
For those who are not yet familiar with the Spoon Theory, visit this link. Today has been turning out to be a very non-productive day. Right from the start. The first issue was waking up in pain. Particularly in my hands. Every joint in my fingers, stiff and sore. I know osteoarthritis is setting in … Continue reading Looks like I ran out of spoons
Feeling rather haggard this morning, so I'll start with cuteness, first. When I saw Big Rig lying on her back, sleeping, I just had to get a picture. Unfortunately, I woke her up in the process, but she didn't move much. 😀 After rigging up walls around the kitty pool, we waited until the kittens … Continue reading Well, that didn’t work
