It was pretty nippy this morning, with the temperatures dropped down to -26C/-15F. Thankfully, with no wind chill! That's the coldest we've had this winter so far (and yes, I know; technically, we're still fall), and the coldest we will be for the next few weeks, at least. As I write this, my desktop tells … Continue reading Too cute!
First, the fun stuff! My family is silly. Yesterday, I roasted some chickens for the next few days and, since I had to get up earlier this morning, I had and early supper. I set out a bowl for the "bones and oogy bits" and labelled it before going to bed. This is what I … Continue reading My family is silly, and court update
My husband was able to feed the outside cats for me this morning, so when I came out to do the rest of my morning rounds later, most of them had already moved on. Junk Pile Jr. was by the door and aaaalllmost let me pet her, but not quite! She did sniff my hand, … Continue reading Oh, the little bugger!
I just couldn't resist posting another David picture. How can I resist that face? 😀 As I was waiting for this image to load in the editor, I heard a thump behind me. One of the cats fell of my bed and thudded onto the floor... Keith just jumped onto the bed looking sheepish. I … Continue reading That face!
Just before heading inside after finishing up with the gardening, I saw a very, very filthy Creamsicle Jr go by! So of course, I had to try and get some photos. When he first went past me, I barely recognized him! Gosh, they do love rolling in the dust. I got quite a surprise when … Continue reading Transparent kitty
I had a rather amusing start to the morning! While heading out to feed the outside cats, I heard a noise from an unusual direction. I had startled Nicky the Nose on the sun room roof! I always get a giggle out of how he pancakes himself like that when he's startled. As if he … Continue reading An awesome Mother’s Day, pancake cat, soil comparisons and pretty things. 🙂
I had some spicy company this morning! Ginger was quite enjoying his morning stretches. 🙂 He had been rolling and stretching next to me so enthusiastically, he rolled right off the edge of the bed. Whereupon he looked up at me, as if to say, "I meant to do that!" His brother was also keen … Continue reading Ginger, Nutmeg and chives
Yesterday, Ginger discovered the joys of bedding being changed! The cats tend to react two ways when the sheets get changed. About half the cats see what's happening, and are all "YAY!!! IT's party time!" and promptly make it very, very difficult to make the bed. The others go into a panic and run away … Continue reading The Adventures of Ginger
When we moved out there to take care of the property for my mother, our adult daughters could have stayed behind. Instead, they chose to give up their jobs and move out to the sticks to help me in caring for their father, as well as the property. They gave up a lot, though considering … Continue reading I have awesome daughters!
We are having some beautifully mild weather right now - the forecasts are still predicting we will hit a couple of degrees above freezing! (and I'm already seeing people "blame" it on climate change, as if we've never had warm Januaries before... *sigh*). Our hard wired security camera is set to take a photo and … Continue reading In the pink
