The down side of using what clear weather we've had to keep on top of the mowing is, lots of other things aren't getting done. Today, we tackled one of those jobs (though I could easily have spent a couple of hours mowing). We worked on pruning the dead wood out of the crab apple … Continue reading Crab apple pruning
Along with kitties following me as I did my morning rounds today, I'm now hearing a loud chorus of Canada Geese and cranes, returning for the season. Photo of the Day will go on hiatus for a little while. I've run out of good pictures and haven't had the opportunity to take many photos at … Continue reading Photo of the Day: Tasty!
Things are warming up again. We're actually above freezing right now. Unfortunately, that means that any hibernating flies that have survived the cold are starting to come out and sluggishly make their way to windows. Guess how I know that? Go on! Guess! Yeah. The cats have found them. I first discovered this when I … Continue reading Silly Kitties, and relentless winds
I heard a noise above my head... How majestic! 😀
What is it about the bird bath? They just got fresh water in a freshly cleaned indoor water bowl, but noooo... they gotta go for the chopped up ice, bird bath water. 😀
Dave likes to sit on my husband's chest while he tries to use his computer. Which typically results in my husband losing the use of at least one hand, because he ends up having to support a cat butt. The house is getting a bit chilly these days, so my husband has taken to wearing … Continue reading Photo of the Day: Spoiled beast!

It also means that, when I finally get around to uploading the photos and seeing … Continue reading Picture(s) of the Day: handsome goof!
When topping up the bird bath with warm water, I could see where the cats had licked a hole though the ice on the surface to get at the water below. The hole got bigger when warm water was added to it. Potato Beetle was absolutely fascinated by it. He kept prowling around it. Water … Continue reading Photo(s) of the Day: what’s going on here?
Before things started to stay below freezing, I was able to give the bird bath a thorough scrubbing and add a bit of water. Which froze overnight, so I added more in the morning. The cats just can't get enough of that. Here, the top layer has frozen, so there are bubbles moving underneath that … Continue reading Photo(s) of the Day: water cats
First off, many thanks to Elfidd for mentioning using a snow rake in the comments of my last post. How did I not know about such a tool? After doing some searches and discovering not only what it was, but how affordable it was, I left early to pick up my daughter, so I could … Continue reading Our new toy
