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
I was just heading back into the house after a quick version of my morning rounds, when I realized I was being watched. The Potato Beetle was all tucked in! For those who are new to this blog (welcome!), one of the things we did to help the yard cats over the winter, was create … Continue reading Sitting pretty, and an update on the unpleasant stuff
Of course, because I actually needed to get a good sleep because I had to head out early for court this morning, that meant I got almost no sleep at all! Only part of that could be blamed on the cats being destructive in the night. 😉 Amazingly, it got cold enough that, for the … Continue reading How things went this morning
Oh, my goodness! I'd been hearing on some of my local gardening groups that people were having a really bad time with grasshoppers. I knew it was just a matter of time before they moved North. And here they are. Do you see them on the gravel? All those specks? The dry grass is hiding … Continue reading The hoard, and a frustrating update
I am so thankful that things cooled down overnight. The garden beds were watered thoroughly last night, and didn't need to be done again this morning. It was all I could do to drag myself outside this morning. The past week or two has started to catch up to me, and the pain levels are … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: photo bomb!
Today was one of those days that went all over the place! So this is probably going to be a very disjointed post! 😀 One of the first things I wanted to get done this morning was to call the RCMP, as advised by my lawyer, about the gunshots from our vandal's property. For non-emergency … Continue reading This, that and the other thing
Last night, our temperatures dipped to -5C/23F. I'm not sure what to make of that, though. When I checked my app during the night, it said it was snowing, so I opened the garage cam app to see. Snowflakes are lit up by the infrared flash. There was no snow. I checked the weather radar, … Continue reading Monthly shop half done, and is it dead?
Today being Sunday, I normally avoid all unnecessary work. With the weather turning nice, it became a day to get back to hauling dirt, so we'll have something to direct sow and transplant into, so that counts as necessary work! Tomorrow is supposed to get quite hot, so I wanted to get as much manual … Continue reading Our 2021 garden, interrupted
Things went in unplanned directions this morning! But first, the fun stuff. 🙂 We have the handsome Ginger to greet us! He's been quite the character, and a lot of fun. 🙂 The outside cats were happy for breakfast. 🙂 We finally took the tarp off the top of the kibble house. We got some … Continue reading Catching up on this morning
First up, thank you to those who wished me well after my last post. I ended up lying down for a while, and the pain was much reduced when I got up again. It's still there, but it's more of a stiffness than pain now. I still have no idea what caused it, but it's … Continue reading Things I’m thinking about
