Yesterday, I got started on making covers for our big fish tank, to keep the cats out. Today, I assembled the first one. Of course, things did not go to plan. Does anything ever? 😀 One of the things I needed to figure out was how to secure the hardware cloth to the frame pieces, … Continue reading Converting the fish tank to a cat proof greenhouse, part 2: changed plans
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful time last night, kicking out the old year, and bringing in the new. 🙂 For us, we don't normally do a whole lot. Living away from town or city celebrations is quite within our preferences! We had good food, each other's company, and the entertainment … Continue reading New Year Kitty, and looking ahead
My goodness, I can hardly believe it's just barely afternoon as I write this. Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest, isn't it?? Things started off pretty routine. I did my rounds and the outside cats were very happy to see me. Well. Happy to see fresh kibble and water! Potato Beetle joined … Continue reading No rest for the wicked!
Today is the first Sunday of Advent. Leyendecker is undisturbed by human regulations and restrictions! 😀 Normally, our tree would have already been decorated, and the Advent wreath, with its candles, set up. It doesn't look like we'll be able to have a tree this year. The cats just seem to wait until we're not … Continue reading This is going to be an odd Christmas
I got a couple of bigger jobs done in preparation for winter. The smaller one was taking care of a window on one of the sheds. This is the one my brother and I had patched the roof of earlier in the year, and is one of the few sturdier sheds left. My original intention … Continue reading Winterizing: window fix
I had quite the crowd greeting me when I headed out this morning! Of course, they immediately abandoned me, once there was food! 😀 I will have to be more careful when I do this. One of the spice boys slipped into the sun room without my noticing, and got trapped! Thankfully, one of my … Continue reading Procrastinating
We did it! We were able to finish the winter shelter for the outdoor cats' kibble containers! The only thing it needs now is to be painted, which will probably wait until spring. Of course, things didn't quite go to plan, but that's pretty much how everything goes! 😀 One of the first things we … Continue reading Progress: kibble house is done!
There was quite a crowd of kitties this morning! There are 12 cats in this picture. Happily, Rolando Moon is still hanging around, busily hissing at any cat that comes near. We haven't seen Creamsicle in a while, though. I hope he is all right. The cat butt sticking out of the entry is a … Continue reading Progress: sun room door and cat kibble shelter
This afternoon, with the help of a daughter, we hung the replacement door back up onto the newly painted frame. We lined the hinges up with where they were before, except further in as far as we could go. Just to be on the safe side, my daughter held the door in place while I … Continue reading Progress: the sun room door is don… AAAAAAaaahhh!!!
Well, most of what I intended to get done today, happened. Plus, some unplanned stuff got done. 🙂 There was quite the crowd around for breakfast - and not all of them are in this photo! Most of them came out of the cat shelter, which was quite gratifying to see. They were hungry enough … Continue reading Almost to plan
