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
Since I neglected to get any kitten pictures to share yesterday, I'm making up for it today! Here are some furry smiles for you to enjoy. 🙂 In the end, I needed to be rescued by my daughter, who was able to de-kitten me, so I could leave! Kitten therapy was exactly what I needed. … Continue reading Kitten Therapy
I am happy to say that Butterscotch's remaining kitten is doing very well with her adoptive mom. I wasn't able to get a photo today (I didn't want to bug Beep Beep too much), so this is one I got last night. Butterscotch's baby is the second from the left, happily nursing. On the one … Continue reading Good news so far!
One of the things I'm appreciating about doing my morning rounds earlier, is our longer days. Along with the increased light is the increased critter activity. Along with my feline followers, I was hearing all kinds of cranes and Canada geese calling. Sometimes, I can see the geese out in the pasture behind the barn, … Continue reading Morning
I had company while doing my rounds this morning! I did not expect Butterscotch to come waddling over to catch up with me. Gosh, she is getting so big! She even let me carry her for a while. Her boys will be a year old at the start of next month, if I remember correctly. … Continue reading Mama and her boys
First, you may have noticed a change in the menu at the top. I now have a separate tab for sourdough. If you're looking for information on making a sourdough starter, or trying some of the recipes we've been using, that's where you'll find quick links to all the relevant posts. There's a reason I've … Continue reading Let’s talk about yeast
This morning, I had the boys keeping me company as I did my rounds. They do love that post! 😀 It's one of their favorite things to climb and scratch when they follow me. Later, I hear meowing from another direction and eventually spotted Butterscotch making her way through the trees. With some difficulty. She … Continue reading Cat company and good news
So... I did a bit of shoveling when I headed out to do my rounds this morning. There is no drifting in front of the house, so the depth of snow you're seeing is what fell. I figure it's about 6-7 inches. There is still a light snowfall as I write this. We've got winds … Continue reading Are you staying home?
Today, I was able to get the van in and finally get the front brakes done. We've got quite a bit of driving to do at the end of the month, so I'm glad to be able to do it now, instead of in the middle of all that. It has been a few days … Continue reading Brakes are done!
I had quite a surprise last night! As I got up from my computer to do the cat stuff a bit earlier than usual - the only reason I happened to see this while there was still enough light - I caught movement out the north facing window. Three deer had been startled and were … Continue reading You can herdly tell
