Before I get into various things, I want to share some cute stuff with you, first! Our collection of baskets that had been stored in the big fish tank ended up on top of the piano for now. The cats love to go up there, so I fully expected them to take advantage of the … Continue reading Cute stuff, and some productivity
One of the first things I do in the morning, before heading outside to do my rounds, is check the weather. This morning, at a time when I would normally be starting to head outside, it was -36C/-32.8F Yeeeaaaaahhhhh.... No. I waited a couple of hours before heading out, but it was still -28C/-18.4F At … Continue reading It’s still cold out there, and… on a more serious note
We've had ourselves a chillier morning today! Light snow, and bitterly cold winds from the south is what greeted me this morning, when I went out to do my rounds. Kitty loaf is not impressed. It does look pretty, though! Switching out the micro disk cards on the new trail cam has gotten somewhat easier. … Continue reading Delivery Fail, and coming unhinged
The temperatures have gone up quite a bit today, and the outside cats are quite appreciating it! I was very happy to see Rosencrantz this morning! I haven't seen her in a couple of weeks. Butterscotch also made an appearance this morning. I didn't see her yesterday. Her babies were just loving the new snow, … Continue reading It’s a fluffy day today!
I just had to pause for a picture when I saw these guys, watching me when I came outside this morning. These guys know well enough to stay out of the wind, even if they can see fresh food and water is about to be dispensed! 😀 Except this little Spice Boy, who has a … Continue reading Morning kitties, and apparently we had a storm
Happy Three King's Day! Today is the Feast of the Epiphany, which is our last day of Christmas. After today, we start taking down our decorations. 🙂 It was another mild day today, so when I finished my rounds this morning, I decided to go ahead and dig out the fire pit. I considered breaking … Continue reading Happy Three King’s Day, and digging out the fire pit
We had a light snowfall all night, with almost no wind. This morning, the trees looked like they were covered in frost! It's enough to almost make the junk cars in the old hay yard look pretty. Almost. Fresh tracks at the feeding station, and around to the ornamental apply trees in the old kitchen … Continue reading Pretty morning
While they don't come around when we're around to see them, there are plenty of signs that the deer are coming to the feeding station. The snow was absolutely trampled this morning! You can see it all the way back to the corner of the spruce grove, before the tracks start splitting up into smaller … Continue reading Signs in the snow
I might wait just a bit longer. I'm sure the critters won't mind staying sheltered a bit longer, either. The temperatures plummeted last night! It's now almost 10am as I write this, and it's still -27C/-16.6F with a wind chill of -35C/-31F out there. The app on my phone says we've already "warmed up" to … Continue reading You bet, I’m procrastinating!!!
I can tell how much milder the temperatures have gotten these past few days, but how many of the outside cats I see when I do my rounds in the morning! I saw 9 of them this morning, including Rolando Moon, who has been away for a week or two, but showed up yesterday. I … Continue reading Cat perch
