We did not get the predicted thunderstorms last night, though we did get rain. While I was out doing my morning rounds, I could hear thunder around us, and it was even starting to rain a bit by the time I was done. So, no work was done on the garden bed I'd started on … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: the weather was not willing
I visited Ginger this morning, while starting my morning rounds and before my daughter came over with his medications and the new surgical shirt. He enjoyed the visiting part, at least! I even managed to get several usable pictures. Doesn't he look completely malevolent? 😀 He's actually really enjoying the scritches. Then he started rolling … Continue reading Ginger bug update: not a happy camper! 😀
I think Ginger is doing just fine... We can check on him, without disturbing him, through the bathroom window at any time. This morning, we forgot to unplug the heater bulb, and my husband found him basking under it! As the sun room warmed up during the day, however, he moved to follow the sun … Continue reading Ginger update: livin’ the life!
This morning, I went ahead of my daughter to visit with Ginger, so I could first give the outside cats some warm water. There was a slight delay on that. Since we took the extension cord that was providing power to the cat house, so it wouldn't be in Ginger's way, the heated water bowl … Continue reading Ginger update and… that was weird!
The Ginger bug is home again!! With his silver, space age bandage, too! 🙂 He seemed very happy to be out of the carrier and in familiar territory. He is quite active - a little too active! and moving around better, now that he doesn't have that leg dangling off his shoulder. Did I mention … Continue reading Baby’s Back!
This post falls into the full disclosure and transparency zone. I just got a call from the vet clinic, this time about the bill. They were able to give us two estimates, depending on how long the surgery took and how complicated it might get. Those estimates included the examination and x-rays we'd brought him … Continue reading Ginger update; more good news
I did some unexpected running around yesterday and didn't have a chance to post. Now that I am, I'm seeing that the title font in my editor has changed. I did not change the default font. I'm not even sure how I would do that! Well, we'll see if anything is different after I hit … Continue reading This and that, and… why have my fonts changed?
The last of our seed orders FINALLY came in the mail today. They were shipped quite a while ago! This was the first batch that was ordered. I completely forgot that, on noticing how few seeds were in the packets compared to the giant sunflowers we ordered last year (which was by weight, not seed … Continue reading They’re finally in! Also, we still have an income…
This morning was bright and sunny while I did my outside rounds, but it was fascinating to watch the fog roll in on the security camera live feed! It was like an approaching wall! By the time my daughter and I headed out in the late morning, the highways had visibility of about a kilometer, … Continue reading Mingling with fog
Yesterday's fog kept getting denser and denser before finally being blown away last night. The live feed on the security camera looked like a blizzard, but it was just fog! Now, everything outside looks like something out of a magical fairy tale! The spruces are the tallest trees around, and their tops always get the … Continue reading It’s a fairyland out there!
