I happened to look out the window, and saw this. Looks like the deer found something to snack on, as the top of our compost pile thaws out! There would be all sorts of vegetable and fruit peels there right now. If there were deer at the compost, I figured there might be some at … Continue reading Some furry visitors, and getting a call
We continue to have frequent visits from deer in our yard. I got this photo out my window yesterday evening. Of the 5 deer in the photo, 4 of them are a family group. One of them was part of a group of 3, two of which I could see through the trees near the … Continue reading Evening and morning critters, and going off the rails a bit
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'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
I want to thank those who reached out to me after my post about the various situations we're having to deal with on the property. Your kind words and encouragement are greatly appreciated. Thank you. The night I wrote about all that, one more thing got added to the list. My husband broke a tooth! … Continue reading Life goes on
I suppose there's one benefit to going out early to do my rounds this time of year. The sunrises are quite pretty. I'd still rather just see them through the trail cam files, or my early bird husband's photos. 😀 And I'm really looking forward to the days getting longer again! We've been busy with … Continue reading Stuff
A couple of days ago, my husband and I had appointments with someone we hoped would be our new doctor, since our previous doctor had to suddenly move out of province. The very morning of the appointment, my husband had to cancel out. Ah, the irony; being too ill to see the doctor... Unfortunately, it … Continue reading Planned, unplanned, new plans…
Today was my "day of rest", during my daughter's short shift. It was warm enough that I was able to do quite a bit of walking (playing Pokemon Go, of course. 😉 ), and was able to check out the conditions at the beach, too. In the distance, you can see a ridge of ice … Continue reading Ah, life.
It feels like it should be much later than it is, but it's only just past 10am as I write this. My husband and I started our day early, so we could leave by 4am for his angiogram. All went well. He is currently in recovery and monitoring, on a real hospital bed and everything! … Continue reading All is well
It's been a long day out, today! I had an appointment at a nearby city to do a stress test. Part of the ongoing testing to try and figure out why my stamina has dropped so severely since last summer, and trace the source of my fatigue. This is one of the tests to see … Continue reading Stress tested
