I'm just loving the longer days and weather conditions we're having right now. I was doing my evening rounds of the yard some time past 9:30 last night, the temperatures were perfect, and I got to watch this gorgeous sunset through the willow branches and spruce trees. This morning, I was thoroughly entertained by feline … Continue reading Things that make me smile
I took this photo last night. Love the sunsets, this time of year.
It's been a busy few days of out-and-abouting, but today I hope to get actual manual labour done in the yard. While also being careful of my broken toe, of course. *grumble* Yesterday, my older daughter and I got glamour shots of the kittens, to use in our attempts to adopt them out. We got … Continue reading Looking good
Ooof. What a long day today - and it's not even 6pm as I write this! The girls and I planned to head out early to the city, which meant I was out earlier than usual to do my rounds. The outside cats did not seem to appreciate me coming out so early to feed … Continue reading Sunrise, sunset

There are too many twigs and pieces of wood to use to layer onto the garden by the house, so I got the fire pit going. I also discovered the Butterscotch has moved her babies to the … Continue reading Evening antics
While tending the fire pit, burning away the rhizomes I'd pulled up earlier, I got to watch a lovely sunset. The photo does not do it justice. It was as if the sky on the horizon was on fire! I went over to the outer fence line (the cow fence. 😉 ) to get this … Continue reading Sky on fire
Last night, we decided to take advantage of the lovely evening, and have our first wiener roast of the year! 😀 When I was a kid, we used to have these quite often. I would go into the bush with a machete-type knife (we even found it while packing away my parents' stuff!) and cut … Continue reading First Wiener Roast of the year!
