First, the cute stuff! Beep Beep is such a good mama! The kittens have taken to napping under the couch regularly. Beep Beep can just barely squeeze under there, herself. A little while ago, my daughter saw her squeeze part way there, then start wiggling oddly. Moments later, some sleepy kitties came out. She then … Continue reading A little bit of progress
After taking yesterday to recover, I was feeling well enough to continue working outside today. But first, I got to release the kitties! 😀 They now know they are allowed to be upstairs when I open the basement door, so they and Beep Beep are all at the top step, waiting for me. As they … Continue reading Back at it
I am in so much pain right now. Chances are, I'll hardly be able to walk tomorrow. But it was worth it! Let's back up a bit. This morning, I got a call from the pharmacy, letting me know my husband's painkillers were ready to pick up. Oh, what wonderful news to start the day! … Continue reading I’ll be feeling this tomorrow!
Taking advantage of a break to quickly post! My attempts at getting kitten pictures has been a failure today. Those little buggers move fast! 😀 So do flowers, actually. At least with the winds we had when I was doing my rounds this morning! These delicate little wildflowers have burst into bloom now. It's interesting … Continue reading Gotta be quick!
Well, it's a good thing I was planning on using the push mower more. While using the riding mower in the inner yard today, I stopped at one point, to go over to talk to my daughter, who was using the push mower. When I returned to the riding mower, it started just fine, but … Continue reading Reclaiming space
Today was a wonderfully productive day. Also, I'm really going to pay for it tomorrow. But I don't care. It was worth it! The first order of the day, after dropping my daughter off at work and picking up prescription refills for my husband, was the transplanting. I combined the 3 bags of soil mix, … Continue reading I started, and I couldn’t stop! Evening round up
First, I must apologize. I didn't get a single kitten picture today, to share with you! I never had the chance. I did visit the kittens, of course. One of the first things I do in the morning is head down there with fresh water for them. When I opened the basement door, Beep Beep … Continue reading Productive
Today started early for me, as I had to drive to my mother's to take her for an appointment to get her CT scan. She had a requirement to drink a litre of water an hour before her appointment, then restrictions on going to the bathroom shortly before, so I wanted to make sure she … Continue reading Clean Up: mowing the big garden
Despite a very foggy, moist start to the day, it dried up enough that I got to use my new toy; the push mower my awesome brother fixed for me. I love his work-around for the seized throttle cable. It's just a wire latch. Like this, it's in the on position and I can start … Continue reading Clean up: ditch view
Today is a day of all kinds of progress. And some not-progress. Some progress is happening as I write this, but that will get its own post. 😀 Progress: mowing in new places. After many delays, I was finally able to start mowing yesterday, only to have it start raining. Not that I'm complaining about … Continue reading Progress
