Yesterday evening, I happened to glance out my window facing the garden and saw a deer making its way into the yard. Something startled it and it ran off, but I figured that would be a good time to do my evening rounds - and check the sunflowers! I headed out through the sun room … Continue reading Evening visitors, and growth progress
Last night, while heading out to do my evening rounds, I had a little surprise - a stinky friend coming out of the sun room! I wanted to use water from the rain barrel, but Stinky had other ideas! 😀 He is not, however, the furry friend I was alluding to in the title. While … Continue reading Furry friends, and making do
As I write this, I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around how not-late in the day it is. 😀 It feels like it should be early evening. Granted, part of that might be the lighting out my window North facing window right now. It's looking a bit dark out there, even though it's … Continue reading A good morning!
While doing my rounds yesterday evening, I spotted a stinky visitor crossing the barn yard. He caught up with me some time later. He moves pretty fast! 😀 I often see signs of where they have been digging up grubs during the night. Last night, I could hear their odd screeching noises out in the … Continue reading Evening visitor, and escape attempts
Before I show you the messy stuff, let me share with you some adorableness! This morning, while doing my morning ablutions, I noticed Dave on the bath chair, eyeballing the towels. We have a small shelf with folded towels under some hanging towels. The hanging towels cover the top, and the cats like to go … Continue reading Well, that’s a mess
So... the outside cats didn't need much feeding this morning. This is how I found things when I came in. How none of that fell into the litter pans, I have no idea! Also, we had company while I was cleaning up. Could this be our culprit? Not likely. My bets are on Beep Beep. … Continue reading “I didn’t do it”
I discovered the cats were not the only ones enjoying the warmer, insulated sun room, this evening! My original intention was to make sure to close the door to the Old Kitchen behind me as I went into the sun room, so the cats wouldn't run in, but with our fragrant friend here, I didn't … Continue reading Hello, Friend
My daughter and I headed out last night to close the cats up in the sun room (the 6 remaining kittens, Beep Beep and, lately, Doom Guy). The first thing we saw was a skunk running off towards to storage house. Which meant there could be... ... yup... A second one was inside the sun … Continue reading Night Time Visitors
I headed outside to start rounding the kittens up and close them in the sun room for the night. The kittens were all over the place, including in and out of the sun room. Something, however, seemed odd. It was getting dark, but the shadows seemed... darker, somehow. Plus, something had the kittens' attention. Then … Continue reading Bonus critters, or “I think the kittens should stay outside longer.”
Seeing our furry visitors, it reminded me that, when I was out in the yard earlier in the day, I had noticed the cat kibble was almost gone. So I decided to top it up for the night. We keep the kibble in the Old Kitchen now, so those were the doors I went through. … Continue reading Gotta be careful!
