We had a really hot day today, so when things cooled down enough, I went out to water the garden plots and sunflowers. Which is when I found this. All the leaves on one side of this one have been eaten! This is the first of the large sunflowers that has had this kind of … Continue reading More deer damage, and a medical update
It had been a while since I'd seen the outside kittens, so I was happy when they showed up this evening. Little Braveheart had follow Junk Pile to the food bowls by the house, but ran off when I came out. They hung out by the steps into the storage house, before hiding in the … Continue reading Fur baby progress!
While doing my evening rounds, I decided to check the pump shack to see if Rosencrantz' kittens were still there. I have not seen them since that first time. I didn't see them, but Junk Pile was following me around - growling the whole time. Then, as I passed the junk pile, I saw Junk … Continue reading I touched a kitty!
What a lovely day today turned out to be! The area we have the picnic table set up for painting is near where the cucamelons are planted. After painting last night, the girls checked them out and spotted baby cucamelons! When I'd checked them earlier, they weren't even blooming. Of course, I had to check … Continue reading Cookout, cats and cucamelons – what a beautiful day!

This morning, while Junk Pile was by the house, waiting for me to refill the kibble, I saw her mostly white kitten, sitting on the mulch by the grapes. It's not the white kitten in … Continue reading Two kinds of babies
Yesterday, things were a bit cooler and finally nice enough to start a fire in the fire pit! I've been putting small branches and the invasive vines I've pulled up into there since last summer, so it felt good to finally burn that stuff away!

While doing my rounds, before going to the city, I went to the usual spots to see if any more branches had come down during the night.

Yesterday was a day where the weather lurched from pouring rain to brilliant sunshine! Things had cleared up enough that I even turned my computer back on again for a while. The weather radar looked like we would be getting rain, but the more severe parts of the system would miss us, again. Then, part … Continue reading Storms done, and pretty things
