After breaking the lawn mower in the strip along the road, I finally got back to it, today. Here is how it looked before I started, from each end. I suppose one good thing about the drought conditions is that this area has never gotten overgrown. There were saplings starting, so I went over the … Continue reading Future wildflower area, and something’s missing
After yesterday being such a crappy day, I'm happy to say that today was much improved! This morning, I found several bright bits of sunshine in the garden. Several of our summer squash blossoms are now fully open! There are just male flowers right now, so it's still too early to expect baby squash, but … Continue reading A much better day today, and what will I do with these?
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!

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
