There was quite a crowd of kitties this morning! There are 12 cats in this picture. Happily, Rolando Moon is still hanging around, busily hissing at any cat that comes near. We haven't seen Creamsicle in a while, though. I hope he is all right. The cat butt sticking out of the entry is a … Continue reading Progress: sun room door and cat kibble shelter
So... I'm a suck. Especially when it comes to the cats. But if you have been following this blog for a while, you knew that already. 😉 While our basement maternity ward is certainly warmer than outside, when I checked on the mamas and babies earlier today, I noticed that the babies felt a bit … Continue reading Hanging rig, finished
I am thrilled to say, the problem with our septic has been dealt with AND the pump itself still works! We're still not sure why it stopped pumping completely. More on that later. The whole job was much, much bigger than we expected. Also, my brother is a saint. God bless him! I don't know … Continue reading It’s finally done!

Small as they are, 10 kittens and 1 little litter box isn't working anymore! 😀 Since I was in town anyways, I stopped to pick up replacement hose connectors. Garden hoses are among the things we're … Continue reading Fixing garden hoses
Yes!! It's done! My darling brother happened to need to come out here for other things, so he was able to take a look at the wiring, and we got it done. No more exposed wires, and now the entire stove top is lit up. The light even has 3 brightness settings, so we'll have … Continue reading New range hood – part 2
With the snow starting to show up, I had no excuses. Time to fix the garage door. Back in April, the old handle on the door simply fell off. It wasn't the original handle to begin with. I have no idea what was holding it in place, really, since there were no screws. Just the … Continue reading Fixing the garage door
Today we picked up some fence wire to make a new gate for our second driveway. The wire we got was 1 inch mesh, in a roll of 36" x 25' I was pleased to see the hardware store had 1 inch mesh in stock. When I price checked it a while back, the largest … Continue reading Building the new back gate
The sun room does not have any power to it, other than the light. Even the switch for that is in the old kitchen. When my dad used it, he had a radio and a clock going, powered by a household extension cord going through the window to the old kitchen. The cord was long … Continue reading Some Handy Hooks
So about a month and a half ago, I discovered the reason we were screaming through our internet's data plan so quickly. I had a Data Vampire in my own desktop. For some reason, my desktop's system was using over 80 GIGS of data, and I had no way to find out what, specifically, was … Continue reading Data Vampire Slain?
