While picking cucalmelons this morning, I found a little friend! We've been seeing LOTS of frogs about this size, every time we to go through the garden beds. Usually, they hop off too quickly for me to get photos, but this one didn't move! He was even okay with the cucamelon leaves being pulled aside. … Continue reading A little friend, and change of (medical) plans
We had a really hot day today, so when things cooled down enough, I went out to water the garden plots and sunflowers. Which is when I found this. All the leaves on one side of this one have been eaten! This is the first of the large sunflowers that has had this kind of … Continue reading More deer damage, and a medical update
Today, the girls held down the fort while I headed out early to take my mother for a doctor's appointment - her first since things were just starting to shut down. Most appointments were being cancelled - thankfully, not hers - and they were only doing phone appointments. The clinic is still doing "walk ins" … Continue reading A hint of what this August looks to be like
I guess it's a good thing our washing machine didn't come in. It means we are NOT driving to the city today. Right now, I'm glad to not have to make the trip. For some reason, I had a sleepless night, and am running on empty. I did finally get a few hours of sleep, … Continue reading Running on empty

Oh, what wonderful news to start the day! … Continue reading I’ll be feeling this tomorrow!
What a runaround today has been. But first, I will share something to make you smile! Upside down, furry friends. Two Face and Dave were busily playing, with Two Face grabbing, licking and biting Dave's head and him... letting her. 😀 At about 1am. I just had to turn on a light and get pictures. … Continue reading Good grief
For those who are not yet familiar with the Spoon Theory, visit this link. Today has been turning out to be a very non-productive day. Right from the start. The first issue was waking up in pain. Particularly in my hands. Every joint in my fingers, stiff and sore. I know osteoarthritis is setting in … Continue reading Looks like I ran out of spoons
Today I took my husband into the city for a medical appointment, but of course I had to check the kitties, first! They are getting more and more active! We're going to have to put them in something deeper, soon, so they don't start crawling around the basement. At their size, there are too many … Continue reading I know what I’m doing tomorrow!
I've been told I should make sure to add warnings before I post certain things, so I'll start with that. Towards the end of this post, there are pictures of a dead bird. Aside from that, during my morning rounds, I did get photos of Two Face. Her wound is healing quite nicely. You can … Continue reading The reality of things
