Today was such a beautiful day! While doing my rounds this morning, I spotted Junk Pile cat at the bottom of this icicle hanging from the rain barrel diverter, drinking from the little well created at the bottom. Even though we were still a few degrees below freezing, there was a trickle of ice melt, … Continue reading Feeling productive
What a huge difference between yesterday and today! At a time when we were at -28C/-18F yesterday, we were at -8C/17F this morning! When I changed out Potato Beetle's water bowl yesterday, which was up close to the heat bulb, I ended up with a shell of ice. This morning, there was no ice at … Continue reading Well, half the job is done!
Oh, my goodness! It is so incredibly warm out there right now! The Weather Network app on my desktop has not been working well with our intermittent internet connection, and often will not update at all, but the weather app that came with my computer seems to get through better. (Even while writing a post, … Continue reading We’re melting! Plus, vet trip arranged
My goodness, it's feeling like spring out there! As I write these, we are at -8C/18F and expected to still warm up a bit! Not even the wind chill of -15C/5F can put a damper on it. 😀 It's so warm that, while doing my morning rounds (at about -15C, before wind chill), I was … Continue reading Oh, what a lovely day!
Spring decided to take off, this morning. https://www.instagram.com/p/BwRoHh1HypU/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=1gm2mxlok5r4v
Ah, spring is in the air! Here is some video I found while checking the trail cam this morning. Pay close attention to the background. https://youtu.be/D1OSLoLZPz0 The young deer back there are just full of bounce and energy!! We are also looking ahead to more bouncing babies. Butterscotch is getting big, and it's not just … Continue reading Bouncin’ Babies
With all the snow melt and puddles forming, I quickly got tired of wet feet and soaked shoes. So last night, I bit the bullet and braved an area of the house I tend to avoid. The new part basement. I remembered seeing a whole bunch of rubber boots down there, and was desperate enough … Continue reading Still got no rubbers
The warmer temperatures have created some interesting conditions, and it is a direct consequence of our lack of a snow blower during parts of the winter. Snow traps. That trap tires. 😀 I got stuck a couple of times yesterday, in our own driveway. Here is why. The first time I got stuck was just … Continue reading Snow trap
The girls and I had to make a run into town for them to pick up and sign their tax paperwork (no unhappy surprises for them, thank God!). It was a gorgeous day, so when we took advantage of being in town to play some Pokemon Go, we also took advantage of a Pokemon Go … Continue reading Beach Weather!
Today warmed up considerably, so I took the time to tromp around outside and check things out - posts about that, to follow. In the process, I got to visit some of the friendlier outside cats... and...touch the Butterscotch. Butterscotch has been one of the more stand-offish of the outside cats, and usually stays … Continue reading Outside Kitties and… oh, no.
