It's a good thing we started so many squashes, and ended up transplanting them as such different times. The ones that sprouted later and got transplanted later got missed by that last frost of the season, and have been quite prolific. A couple of frost damaged ones in the first bed, both zucchini, recovered enough … Continue reading Follow up: frost damaged squash
While doing my rounds this morning, I made sure to check where I'd found wasps while trying to clean up yesterday. I was surprised by what I saw. First, there was the hole in the ground. I didn't expect to see an actual hole like that. Also, do you see the light brown stuff scattered … Continue reading Follow up: ground wasps
So... My husband and I are back from his appointment at the pain clinic in the city. In a nutshell? Nothing happened, and nothing will happen. At least not there. To backtrack a bit. When we first moved here, one of the first things we had to do was find a new doctor for my … Continue reading How it went
I got to follow up on a couple of things this evening. We hit 32C/89F today, so once things got cooler, I headed out to water the garden beds. Yesterday evening, after letting the silicon sealant cure for more than 24 hours, I filled the rain barrel by the garden, so today was the litmus … Continue reading Following up on things
This morning, I was a bit late doing the outside part of my morning rounds, having taken the time to finish the second hoop to cover the rain barrel by the sun room. On checking the rain barrel by the garden, it seemed to be okay, but I did find a very minor leak from … Continue reading Garden rain barrel, follow up
I am in so much pain right now. Chances are, I'll hardly be able to walk tomorrow. But it was worth it! Let's back up a bit. This morning, I got a call from the pharmacy, letting me know my husband's painkillers were ready to pick up. Oh, what wonderful news to start the day! … Continue reading I’ll be feeling this tomorrow!
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!
Yesterday was our day to do our monthly shop, which always makes for a long day. We actually decided not to do a full shop, though, and will go back later in the month. Specifically, we didn't get all the cat kibble and litter we usually do. It gets really hard to pack the van … Continue reading Long Day
Oh, what a gorgeous day it has been, today! Warm enough that, after dropping my daughter off at work, I went and parked by the beach and actually went walking. The lake and beach were very busy. There is an ice structure on the beach right now, and many people drive right up on the … Continue reading On Ice
First up, I just wanted to share one of the photos I managed to get yesterday evening. The two bucks I saw in the trail cam finally came by when we were there to see them, and get photos! Still too dark to use the DSLR on its tripod, with the lens I have on … Continue reading Spiky guests, and not quite done with the car thing…
