I missed my daily post yesterday. The day was pretty much a total write off! This is largely why... This screencap was taken shortly before 1pm. We were at 30C/86F with a humidex of 37C/98F, but we easily reached the expected high of 33C/91F and humidex of 39C/102F by the end of the afternoon. The … Continue reading Heat wave continues
Oy, what a day it's been! Our high of the day was reached at about 4:30 pm! 32C/89F, with the humidex putting us at 36C/97F. We're not going to be cooling down much, even overnight, either. At least there's a wind, and on the weather radar, it looks like we'll at least get some rain … Continue reading Growing things, wins and losses
outside cats, kittens, iris, flowers,
I'm happy to say that, yesterday evening, when things started to cool down a bit, we got a couple of big jobs finished. The first was to finish cleaning up the pile of branches pruned from the apple trees. My awesome daughters actually finished the job by cutting up the largest pieces. Except that one … Continue reading Catch up, and kitties!
The morning rounds, as usual, started with a visit to the kitties. I fully expected to find a couple at the top of the stairs, as has been the usual thing lately. Nope. Just Beep Beep. The other usual thing is to go down the stairs and find the kittens not already on the stairs, … Continue reading Mourning roundup – and what a nasty boy!
Wild with wild flowers, that is! And... other things. While doing my rounds this morning, I got to enjoy some lovely wildflowers. I'm counting the cranberries as wild, since they are self-sown. 😉 There is a path of flowers running along the south fence that my mother sowed many years ago and have been taking … Continue reading Going wild
We've got ourselves a lovely - and windy! - day today. It made doing the morning rounds quite pleasant. The routine started, of course, with babies. 🙂 One of the down sides of not being able to do stairs very well is, even with my daughter at the top of the stairs to help keep … Continue reading Morning rounds
Today started off very well, so I'll start with that, too! I'm happy to say that the new bed has made a huge difference. There must be something about no longer being so close to the floor, because I slept like a rock - for almost 11 hours! Which meant I got a late start … Continue reading Oh, what a day. Already
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
Well, when it came to the mad dash to get the lawn mowing started, it was mosquitoes 0 : rain 1 😀 The bug spray actually worked this time. 😀 Thankfully, I didn't have to charge the battery on the riding mower, and could get started on that right away. I got rained on a … Continue reading Evening round up
