Progress: sun room door and cat kibble shelter

There was quite a crowd of kitties this morning! There are 12 cats in this picture. Happily, Rolando Moon is still hanging around, busily hissing at any cat that comes near. We haven't seen Creamsicle in a while, though. I hope he is all right. The cat butt sticking out of the entry is a … Continue reading Progress: sun room door and cat kibble shelter

Progress: the sun room door is don… AAAAAAaaahhh!!!

This afternoon, with the help of a daughter, we hung the replacement door back up onto the newly painted frame.

Just to be on the safe side, my daughter held the door in place while I … Continue reading Progress: the sun room door is don… AAAAAAaaahhh!!!

Progress: sun room door frame, and bird feeder support post

It has been a rather productive afternoon! The first order of business was to test out my new tool on the sun room door frame.

This included stopping at the post office in our little hamlet. Which is also a liquor store. I bought a whole lot of wine. Or, should I … Continue reading Got a new toy, and dealing with unexpected issues

Reclaiming space: sun room part 2, and the old kitchen

Before I start on how things went with the clean up, I have another update. I just got off the phone with Canada Cartage - the company shipping our new washing machine. They didn't receive it at this end, so they will call us with a new delivery date when they have it. I might … Continue reading Reclaiming space: sun room part 2, and the old kitchen

Progress: sun room door and garden stuff

I got a little reminder today, of why I need to start using the sun room as a greenhouse. The cats have already knocked the mini-greenhouse over once, and despite our best efforts at making sure the bottom of the plastic is pushed under the frame, the cats are determined to get in. Especially Susan! … Continue reading Progress: sun room door and garden stuff
