I was just heading back into the house after a quick version of my morning rounds, when I realized I was being watched. The Potato Beetle was all tucked in! For those who are new to this blog (welcome!), one of the things we did to help the yard cats over the winter, was create … Continue reading Sitting pretty, and an update on the unpleasant stuff
Of course, because I actually needed to get a good sleep because I had to head out early for court this morning, that meant I got almost no sleep at all! Only part of that could be blamed on the cats being destructive in the night. 😉 Amazingly, it got cold enough that, for the … Continue reading How things went this morning
Oh, my goodness! I'd been hearing on some of my local gardening groups that people were having a really bad time with grasshoppers. I knew it was just a matter of time before they moved North. And here they are. Do you see them on the gravel? All those specks? The dry grass is hiding … Continue reading The hoard, and a frustrating update
Today was one of those days that went all over the place! So this is probably going to be a very disjointed post! 😀 One of the first things I wanted to get done this morning was to call the RCMP, as advised by my lawyer, about the gunshots from our vandal's property. For non-emergency … Continue reading This, that and the other thing
Last night, our temperatures dipped to -5C/23F. I'm not sure what to make of that, though. When I checked my app during the night, it said it was snowing, so I opened the garage cam app to see. Snowflakes are lit up by the infrared flash. There was no snow. I checked the weather radar, … Continue reading Monthly shop half done, and is it dead?
Let's talk about pleasant things, first! Here is an adorable photo of Ginger for you. 🙂 Doesn't he look so sweet and peaceful? Not at all like the mischievous bugger I had to stop from trying to attack one of the trunks of the big jade tree in the living room! 😀 I did very … Continue reading Dragging on
Well, today - after three delays due to pandemic lock downs - I finally went to court for our restraining order application against our vandal. Only to find it was delayed for a fourth time. The frustrating part is that I called to confirm, just a couple of days ago. I was even put on … Continue reading So frustrating!
Well, it's done. I had my teleconference court date this morning. What a waste of time. I figured we would have one of two results. Either the judge would look at our vandal's claims against me and my defense, and throw the whole thing out, or we would get another court date. I don't think … Continue reading Hearing
What a gorgeous morning today, while I was doing my rounds! The ground looked like it was covered in frost, but it wasn't frost. We were having an ever so slight snowfall, and it was making the very air glitter and sparkle! I couldn't resist trying for some shots of snowflakes on spruce needles. My … Continue reading Got it done
It was a really gorgeous morning out, while I was doing my rounds. The trees were covered with frost - but only the tops! 😀 It was not a very productive day today, unfortunately. I think I spent too much time on the computer yesterday, leaving me with a weird headache all night, making it … Continue reading Frosted
