I'm happy to say the kibble shelter set up seems to be working just fine! I found one of the food containers under the kibble house this morning. I was able to reach it to get it out, but even if it had got pushed back further, that's okay, since the floor boards can be … Continue reading Happy kitties, not so happy washing machine, and awesome customer service
Well, most of what I intended to get done today, happened. Plus, some unplanned stuff got done. 🙂 There was quite the crowd around for breakfast - and not all of them are in this photo! Most of them came out of the cat shelter, which was quite gratifying to see. They were hungry enough … Continue reading Almost to plan
Today I did some work on my mother's car, to help prepare it for winter. For those less familiar with some of the things many of us Canadians need to do to our vehicles so they better survive our winters, most vehicles here have, at the very least, a block heater. That's all our van … Continue reading So many cords…
First, the cute! Lately, when I open the doors to the sunroom to get the cat kibble during my morning rounds, I have had company. Little Braveheart has been dashing in and out as I load up on kibble. Even Tabby has been coming closer, but not quite as close as Braveheart. Right now, I've … Continue reading The cute, the creepy and the awesome
After seeing how great the sunflowers did, after last night's first frost, it was time to see how the squash beds looked after a day of relative warmth. You can see how all the leaves that got hit with frost have shriveled and darkened. There is some hope, though... For many (not all) of the … Continue reading Frosted carnage, and we’re back to 1 1/2
A morning smile for you! For the most part, the other cats have been ignoring the kittens. Sometimes, they'll come over and peer into the nest, but that's about it. Then Beep Beep started taking Nicco out to a new spot under my crafting table, repeatedly. I thought I'd gotten her to stop, but one … Continue reading Who is this?
No, we didn't find the source of the knocking in the van. We picked up the van, dropping off my mom's car at the same time, then did a quick trip to the grocery store before we had to pick Two-Face up from the vet. My daughter also made an appointment to get our original … Continue reading Found it!
One of the things I'm appreciating about doing my morning rounds earlier, is our longer days. Along with the increased light is the increased critter activity. Along with my feline followers, I was hearing all kinds of cranes and Canada geese calling. Sometimes, I can see the geese out in the pasture behind the barn, … Continue reading Morning
I just got a call from the garage about our van. Apparently, he's been trying to call me since yesterday, on both the land line and my cell phone, and couldn't get through. I have no idea why; my mother phoned earlier, and got through no problem. I had just got off the phone with … Continue reading Van update
I got a call from the garage today, about our van. Once again, he drove it around and examined it on the lift. Nothing. Not a knock. Not a shudder. The van is running fine. The only thing he could find, after going over the entire front end, was a minor tear in the front … Continue reading Our mysterious van
