Today has been a lovely, cool day! Perfect to get those sunflowers done. I had assistants. When I started filling the holes with the soil mixture, the Potato Beetle decided to sit his butt over one of the next holes! My first thought was that he was taking a dump and I went to push … Continue reading Gardening progress: sunflowers are in!
Today I took my husband into the city for a medical appointment, but of course I had to check the kitties, first! They are getting more and more active! We're going to have to put them in something deeper, soon, so they don't start crawling around the basement. At their size, there are too many … Continue reading I know what I’m doing tomorrow!
Before I head out to visit my mother (outsider her window... ) for Mother's Day, here are some adorable, furry worms to make you smile! I'm glad Beep Beep used this cardboard nest we set up to have her kittens in. The box is the base from a case of cat food tins. Not … Continue reading Morning adorableness
After an oddly sleepless night and a fair bit of running around, I just didn't have the energy to post earlier today. I did, however, get kitty pictures! Here's a bit of cuteness to make you smile. 🙂 That one smooshed kitten... 😀 Creamsicle was very demanding about being picked up this morning! The Potato … Continue reading No, I didn’t forget!
Today was a day to work on a whole bunch of little things that needed to be done or started - and a surprise breakage. Rather than do one huge post, I'll split them up into a bunch of little posts. But first, here's something that cheered me up this morning. Of course, there was … Continue reading Morning cheers
The chain link fence in front of the house has two gates in it. One smaller, people-sized gate, and a larger vehicle-sized gate. Both are broken at the hinges. I had been leaving both gates open; we only ever needed to close them when the renter's cows got into the outer yard, when his electric … Continue reading Broken gates, sad seedlings and critter company
Hello, kitties! The kittens seem to be away more often, and squirming around their nest a bit more. When I first came down to tend to their mother, the tuxedo was well away from the others, and close to the outside end of the box. My being there seemed to disturb him, because he quickly … Continue reading Morning critters
She spent the night sleeping in front of our door, ignoring the shelter I rigged up for her. Shortly after 7 this morning, I looked out the kitchen window to see a very chilled man in a hoodie, sitting at the front step, very diligently not making direct eye contact with the goat, a container … Continue reading Yes, there’s still a goat at our door
First, an update on the kitties! Beep Beep came half out of her baby nest to have a bit of food while I was there, with the babies peacefully snoozing in a pile. I was even able to get a picture, despite her best efforts to use her butt to block my attempts. 😀 She … Continue reading Update, up and broken things
It is already turning out to be a very warm day today. We're supposed to hit a high of 15C/59F this afternoon! While doing my rounds this morning, I had a Potato demanding cuddles the whole time. 🙂 It was warm enough that I went to try and move the saw horses by the storage … Continue reading Sad news
