It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving day, but we are having our big dinner today. My mother loves her turkey dinner, so I will be bringing her some tomorrow, while my brother visits with her today. Right now, the turkey is in the oven, as are most of the potatoes that were … Continue reading A Crespo surprise
It has remained too damp to try cutting wood, so I worked on a few other things today. One of them was to start getting the remaining chimney blocks out of the old basement, to where they will be set up for next year. The blocks themselves are not too much of a problem. I … Continue reading Little by little, and a Crespo surprise
We had a bunch of things waiting for us at the post office today, including a surprise package! M, you are a sweetheart! These will last us for years. 🙂 Thank you! One of the things that was listed as, 'it might come in or it might be delayed', was the pasta drying rack. It … Continue reading Things that came in today
I was a bit late doing my rounds, so it was starting to get a bit dark. Which made finding this, that much more dramatic! It was NOT blooming this morning! When checking the squash beds, I have been keeping an eye on the back row, trying to decide with of the surviving plants are … Continue reading White
This time of year, we pretty much never see deer at the feeding station. If they're coming by, it's typically when we're all in bed. Except tonight. My daughter happened to be in the living room, with the lights out, escaping the heat of the second floor when she glanced out the window to see … Continue reading What a surprise!

Of the trees in the area, some are too large for the elastic cords used to hold it in place, but I had smaller ones, so I tried different fence posts. Finally, I tried other tree that were smaller but were also … Continue reading Trail Cam bird
The kittens have really been enjoying their newfound freedom. Yesterday morning, they all discovered the ornamental apple trees in the old kitchen garden. At one point, we have 4 or 5 of them in one, and 3 in the other, all at the same time! All that running around is very tiring. This evening, while … Continue reading Cat tales
While doing the cat stuff this evening, kittens were getting into the old kitchen. When I put out wet cat food for them, I did a head count, to make sure all 9 kittens were accounted for. I got to 10. I counted again. Still 10. That means the orange kitten we thought was taken … Continue reading 10
While going outside to investigate some animal noises (the visiting toms were at each other again), my daughter and I were surprised by another noise. A tiny, squeaking noise. Coming from the old dog house. It was dark, but I went over in hopes I could see something by the security light, but backed off … Continue reading Critter of the Day: Surprise!
My older brother unexpectedly came by today, and while I was outside with him, my daughter popped out to warn me that we cannot close the kitchen window right now. We have a guest. It's been sitting there for several hours, now! It is so CUTE! I love my little green friend. 😀 A nice … Continue reading Window Frogs and awesome brothers
