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
I hope you all had a wonderful day today, even if you had to celebrate it in a different way than usual. This morning, the basket was assembled, and I found an English translation of the traditional Polish blessings of the contents (my Polish is not good enough anymore!). Then it was time to lay … Continue reading Wishing you a happy and blessed Easter!
I wasn't able to get back to working on getting the tire planter out (I can wiggle it a bit more, though! 😀 ), but yesterday evening I decided to deadhead the spirea by the storage house. I also cut them back from the grapes they were starting to encroach on again. As I was … Continue reading Just a bit more…
Oh, it's good to come home! My mother needed to do some errands, so today I took her car and chauffeured her around. She had some errands in her own town, but she also wanted to visit her sister in the nursing home in the town closer to our place, so we did that as … Continue reading Long day and, aquarium status
The Thanksgiving family dinner we had planned last month got rescheduled to today. Since moving here, we did have one large family dinner, before Christmas or so, so it's been almost a year. I think it turned out rather well. I think Doom Guy agrees. He was so funny to watch! I actually started the … Continue reading Belated Canadian Thanksgiving dinner
Today was a day for visiting. We even got a visit from my brother's dog, this morning. 🙂 I think we need to add "dog" to the list of critters we've been feeding - he does seem to enjoy the cat kibble! 😀 Then it was time for me to go and visit my mother. … Continue reading Visiting
Before I go into today's events, I wanted to share this photo from a few days back. I had been watching the birds at the feeder and noticed some much bigger birds under the apple tree. I don't think I've ever seen so many robins, all together (there were several more that I was unable … Continue reading A Good Day – and critters!
After I finished my last post (just before midnight! 😀 ), I tried once again to see if I could close up the sun room for the night. The last I saw, all the kittens were outside eating, and the skunk was settling into the corner of the sun room. I came in to find … Continue reading Not quite what I expected
It's just one, so far; the tuxedo. My daughter tells me he let her pet him yesterday, too. Progress!!! 😀 I was out for much of the morning, taking my mother to the hospital she will be going for surgery at, tomorrow, for her pre-op blood work. We took her car, since it's easier to … Continue reading A kitten let me pet it!!
What a night it was last night! A night when we really appreciated what we can accomplish with our modern communications technology! Late last night, I drove my mother to meet a family member that was supposed to arrive shortly after midnight. Earlier in the day, I had been in contact with his daughter through … Continue reading A win for modern technology
