First up, thank you to those who wished me well after my last post. I ended up lying down for a while, and the pain was much reduced when I got up again. It's still there, but it's more of a stiffness than pain now. I still have no idea what caused it, but it's … Continue reading Things I’m thinking about
The weather system has finally weakened and moved on. Over the next while, we'll be slowing warming up, with a bit more snow predicted on the weekend (depending on which app I look at! LOL). With temperatures hovering only a few degrees above freezing during the day for the next while, we should have a … Continue reading Now for the slow warm up
Today was such a beautiful day! While doing my rounds this morning, I spotted Junk Pile cat at the bottom of this icicle hanging from the rain barrel diverter, drinking from the little well created at the bottom. Even though we were still a few degrees below freezing, there was a trickle of ice melt, … Continue reading Feeling productive
I like when our Sunday day of rest turns out to be an actual day of rest! While doing my rounds this morning, I let Potato Beetle out of the sun room. Today, he ignored this personal food and water bowls in favour of the outside ones. I love how Nosy likes to just sit … Continue reading A quiet day
Oh, my goodness! It is so incredibly warm out there right now! The Weather Network app on my desktop has not been working well with our intermittent internet connection, and often will not update at all, but the weather app that came with my computer seems to get through better. (Even while writing a post, … Continue reading We’re melting! Plus, vet trip arranged
Okay, so it looks like our internet is working, at least somewhat, so this is a sort of test post! Today was a beautifully warm day! We reached -13C/9F, which was awesome! They are now forecasting Monday will be 4C!! (40F) It's going to be amazing! The girls will be going out onto the roof … Continue reading Let’s give it a try!
What a difference between yesterday and today! I took advantage of yesterday's warmth with a trip into town. At one point, on the way back, I was driving through precipitation that couldn't make up it's mind if it was snow or rain! LOL We actually hit 3C/37.4F, which was a couple of degrees warmer than … Continue reading There are those who prefer the cold!
My goodness, it's wicked out there this morning! That -12C (10F) isn't too bad. It's the -21C (-5F) wind chill! Actually, I'm pretty sure that in our yard, the wind chill is more severe than that! The amazing thing is that we are supposed to reach 0C (32F) by this evening. The winds are driving … Continue reading Wicked!
Yesterday, things cooled down enough it was actually worth opening up my window. There is still a problem with that. The three amigos and their stuffed companion! For some reason, the cats really, really like to attack the bugs through this window screen. I try to keep on top of it, but they've managed to … Continue reading A little bit of progress
I just got back from a much needed walk outside, to do at least part of my evening rounds. I would happily have stayed out longer, but the mosquitoes were out in their masses, and I didn't want to cover myself with bug spray, this late in the day. While out, I checked on a … Continue reading Babies of a different sort, and wasted day
