For the past while, pain has been driving my husband out of bed quite early in the mornings, so he has been sweet enough to feed the outside cats as soon as it gets light. Which is great for the kitties, and for me, though it meant I didn't get to see the morning crowd … Continue reading Morning kitties
When things started cooling down, I headed outside and checked on the old kitchen garden. I started to pull out some weeds I missed this morning, when I heard a noise. I had startled Junk Pile cat, who was lying on the beets by the retaining wall. She wasn't alone! What a cutie!! I saw … Continue reading New fur babies!
I got to see the kittens again this evening, but this morning, I had quite the critter surprise! To top up our potato grow bags, I headed to the outer hard with the wheelbarrow, with the tools needed to rake up some grass clippings for much, and get a load of garden soil from the … Continue reading Some critter surprises
Nope. I can't. Because I'm a suck. When we find the skunks in the kibble house, we have been chasing them away with the hose. Today, I went out to do the watering and saw a couple of skunks. One immediately ran off and I saw it head under the storage house. The bigger one … Continue reading I can’t do it anymore
I tried to do another post last night, but simply could not load the WordPress editor, our internet was so crappy. My husband tells me it was working fine when he got up at 2am, which suggested that their system was overloaded, on top of the weather wreaking havoc on our signal. Satellite can only … Continue reading Furry things, pretty things and growing things
Okay, this is getting ridiculous! I don't think the needle on that thermometer can go any further. What do you think that's at? 65C/149F? Closer to 70C/158F? I don't think I've ever seen that thermometer get that high. Of course, the weather apps didn't show temperatures that high. One of them allows me to look … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: more firsts!
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
