Today, I finally got the riding mower in to the shop for some TLC. We finally got to use the new ramps my brother bought me. ❤ The girls and I had to take the middle seats out of the van (one of the first things we did after buying the van was take out … Continue reading Better than I expected
Oy, what a day it's been! Our high of the day was reached at about 4:30 pm! 32C/89F, with the humidex putting us at 36C/97F. We're not going to be cooling down much, even overnight, either. At least there's a wind, and on the weather radar, it looks like we'll at least get some rain … Continue reading Growing things, wins and losses
outside cats, kittens, iris, flowers,
I'm happy to say that, yesterday evening, when things started to cool down a bit, we got a couple of big jobs finished. The first was to finish cleaning up the pile of branches pruned from the apple trees. My awesome daughters actually finished the job by cutting up the largest pieces. Except that one … Continue reading Catch up, and kitties!
Today is looking to be a slightly warmer, hopefully drier, day. One of my goals is to finally get some outside work done that had to be delayed. We shall see how that works out. Yesterday evening, I was able to spend some time with the kittens. That was an adventure! They've taken to launching … Continue reading They do make life interesting!
After the heat we've had for the past while, it actually got remarkably chilly last night. It was great! I had some concern about how it got for the kittens, but the basement is pretty good at remaining a constant temperature. This morning, I took one of the long boxes that held pieces of my … Continue reading Morning roundup, and I’m a tree!
The morning rounds, as usual, started with a visit to the kitties. I fully expected to find a couple at the top of the stairs, as has been the usual thing lately. Nope. Just Beep Beep. The other usual thing is to go down the stairs and find the kittens not already on the stairs, … Continue reading Mourning roundup – and what a nasty boy!
I just couldn't let a day go buy without kitten pictures, could I? Well, yes, I could, but I don't want to. 🙂 Our scorcher of a day was finally cooled down by a lovely rainfall - storms will once again go right past us, it looks like - so no chance to make use … Continue reading Yes, I got kitten pictures for you!
So, I think this is a sign... For the first time since we cleaned and refilled this barometer, it has overflowed! As I write this, it's already 28C/82F and we've got weather alerts for heat and thunderstorms. Looking at the weather radar, it looks like we might actually get some rain. That would be nice! … Continue reading Feeling the heat, and fun stuff
This morning's tending to the kitties was truly an adventure! It started when I opened the door and found Leyendecker and Saffron lying on the top step. Just chillin'! They didn't even try to run upstairs right away. Unfortunately, in my attempts to step over them, Beep Beep and the other kittens had time to … Continue reading Kitten Chaos
