After working on the sun room door frame and the bird feeder, it was time to work on the cat house. The first thing I needed to do, though, was adjust the counterweight. I sacrificed another crate to hold the block, then retied it. I had doubled up the rope before and this time, rather … Continue reading Winterizing the cat shelter
Before I start, I want to say Powitaninia! Dziękują za odwiedzanie! to my sudden spike of new visitors from Poland. To jest cudowne mieć wy tutaj. Today is going to be a busy day for us - and it was a busy day of cats this morning! On the list of things to do is … Continue reading Preparing for Thanksgiving
Yay! The squash beds in the old garden area are now all done. Also, where the pumpkin mounds were, we now have three new beds. Here is how it looked when I started. The bamboo stakes are marking where I planted the seed potatoes I found while digging up the potato beds. It should be … Continue reading Fall clean up: squash beds done
On my list of things to do today was to prep the squash beds for winter. Of course, things happened, so I started much later than intended - past 2pm - and didn't get as much done as I'd planned on. Here is how it looked when I started. The first thing I had done … Continue reading Fall clean up: starting the squash beds, plus… this could be bad!
The cat house we now have to provide the outside kitties shelter for the winter has power to it. There are two outlets inside, one of which has a light plugged into it. We've never been able to plug it in. The nearest source of power is in the old kitchen. We've got an extension … Continue reading All aglow, and yard helper
I know I've said this before. I'll probably say it many more times. I have the best brother! He and his wife are just amazing. Yesterday, we had a wonderful surprise from them. I got a message from my SIL that my brother would be coming over with their old dog house, for us to … Continue reading A wonderful surprise!
Today, I finally was able to get working on the old dog houses, getting them ready for winter! 🙂 The first thing on the list was to take off the tarp I'd put over them temporarily, and take down the rope I'd used to hold it up. Since I was there anyway, I decided to … Continue reading Winterizing: the old dog houses
After a lovely surprise, finding my dear friend had sent us a heated water bowl for the outside cats, we later opened my husband's packages to see if the one he had ordered was in. It was. But it was not quite what I expected. It turned out to be about half the size of … Continue reading Not what I expected
My husband had some packages to pick up in today's mail, so I made a quick trip in to pick them up. I was expecting 2, maybe 3, boxes. There was 5! LOL The clerk helped me carry them to my van. 😀 When I got home, I was surprised to find my name on … Continue reading I have the best friends!
I had some daylight left, so I decided to see how far I could get on another thing on my to-do list before winter. Some clean up of the pile of larger wood, by the fire pit. We may not have been able to use the fire pit over the summer, due to fire bans … Continue reading Winterizing: wood for the fire pit
