Thanks to my dear brother and his wife, I had plenty of kibble to feed the kitties this morning. I would have emptied the bin this morning, otherwise. Ginger was out and about, and covered in frost! While the tips of their fur makes them look chilled, when I pet them or pick them up … Continue reading Frosted!
Well, I'm certainly glad my daughter and I have telephone medical appointments this afternoon, and don't have to actually go anywhere. As I write this, we are at -34C/-29.2F, with a wind chill of -39C/-38.2F It has actually warmed up a bit. The heated water bowl is almost completely frosted over! Only a couple of … Continue reading Not a day to go out!
Yesterday's fog kept getting denser and denser before finally being blown away last night. The live feed on the security camera looked like a blizzard, but it was just fog! Now, everything outside looks like something out of a magical fairy tale! The spruces are the tallest trees around, and their tops always get the … Continue reading It’s a fairyland out there!
I headed out to do my morning rounds a bit on the late side, yet there was still frost in the air! It was looking downright foggy, in fact. Everything looked like a fairy tale, sparkling away! Even the ugly wires used for fencing looked beautiful. I love how the lichen on this fence post … Continue reading Frosty morning, and… stuff (updated)
This morning, I was awakened by my husband, asking me if there was some trick to starting the washing machine. I think it was a rhetorical question. Our new washing machine, which we've had for only 2 1/2 months, simply stopped working. It won't turn on. Of course, my husband went through the usual check … Continue reading Frosty morning – and a rough start to the day!
Yesterday evening, while doing my rounds and walking around the back of the house, I startled some babies! Butterscotch seems to have moved her kittens from the junk pile to under the garden shed. Her kittens are getting so much bigger and more adventurous, wandering further afield in the yard. I suspect this has something … Continue reading Getting bigger
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
My husband has an appointment at the heart clinic in the city today, so I was out a bit earlier to do my rounds this morning. As I write this, it's still only 1C (33F), with a "real feel" that has warmed up to -2C (28F) since I last checked. Our high today is supposed … Continue reading Frosted
At least, we hope it is the final frost! With the sun rising so early this time of year, much of it was already melting away, but there was certainly plenty in the shady areas. It made the weeds look very dramatic! 😀 Butterscotch took advantage of my checking on the mulched sunflower rows. She … Continue reading Final Frost
Beautiful blue jay on a beautiful, frosty day.
