We managed to get a few things taken care of in the garden, once things started cooling down. But first, kittens! I wasn't able to get pictures of all four of them, but these two seem to be a bit braver. 🙂 I also saw Rosencrantz and her two babies. It looks like they are … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: first pea pods!
While doing the morning watering, I noticed the grapes have babies! The teeniest of bunches of baby grapes are now visible. 🙂 Doing the watering this morning was a bit of a challenge, as we were having some pretty high winds. High enough to blow the water all over the place. 😀 As always, I … Continue reading Baby grapes and… what’s our forecast???
First things first: the status of Potato Beetle. I have no idea. We never took him to the vet, because we couldn't find him! I did see him this morning, and should have locked him up in the sun room, but I didn't want him have him locked up like that for almost 6 hours. … Continue reading Oy, what a day!
This afternoon, the girls and I did a bit of winterizing around the house by laying sheets of foam insulation around the base of the house and covering the septic tank, and the pipes to the house, with straw. The only part that is left to do is around the tap at the back of … Continue reading Did it work?
Soooo... a few things happened today. Long story short, we are still down to just one account. Long story long... First, we got a call from the tech guy, saying that he would be here between 1 and 3pm to see what's going on with our secondary internet account. Second, we got our ebill for … Continue reading Internet status
Yesterday was a perfect evening for a cookout! Well... except for the mosquitoes. The bug spray we used is supposed to last for 8 hours. It didn't! Unfortunately, my husband wasn't up to joining us, so it was just the girls and I. One of whom helped me unload the riding mower for the van, … Continue reading First cookout!
It seemed our internet woes were solved, late yesterday. Alas, by morning, we had no signal, once again. My shoes finally blew apart, though, so the girls and I went into the city. Yes, we can find shoes locally, but not anything suitable for my monstrous, deformed feet. Since we are in the city, anyhow, … Continue reading Greetings from the city
First up, a big Thank You to City Mouse for making a quick update post for me yesterday. We are still having internet issues, and it's not the trees! For those who are new to visiting this blog, here's out set up, in a nutshell. Because of the house being surrounded by tall trees, which … Continue reading Quick update, while I can
In my last post, I mentioned how we were having connectivity troubles with our satellite internet, due to heave foliage. It's very windy today. Since we switched cables on accounts, we've had constant interruptions in service, to the point that my daughter was having difficulties working. I'd gone outside to use up more of the … Continue reading Just a bit of a prune…
I have been trying for days to upload images, with very little success. We have had no real problems going online. It is just uploading that is an issue. This might be why. 😒 At one point, during the doors test, the upload speed dropped to 0.01mbps. Also, it took a couple of tries to … Continue reading Speed test
