It's been warming up for the past few days, which means I had plenty of company while doing my rounds this morning. Butterscotch, as usual, wanted to be carried, while three others followed along. Then Keith caught up to me. 😀 This is how he asks to be picked up. He is just the sweetest, … Continue reading My brother is awesome. Also, wtf?
First, the good news. There is more of that. 😀 This morning, I woke up with no pain in my right hip. None. It was like I'd never had a problem with it. So weird! When I headed out this morning to feed the critters and do my rounds, I was greeted by an avalanche … Continue reading Really?
Today, I took advantage of a much warmer day (we reached -7C this afternoon) before the temperatures plummet again, and headed to a nearby city to see if we could get a replacement hot water tank. I'd already phoned and had instructions, but we'd never been to this location before, so my daughter and I … Continue reading Got it
Yesterday's plans to take my mother to visit her sister at the nursing home changed. I got a call in the morning, because she was worried about the weather. It was blowing pretty hard, and she was concerned. We ended up postponing for now. When doing my rounds this morning, I found some minor tree … Continue reading Assessing things
A couple of days ago, our temperatures were hovering around 0C. It rained. Well, more of a misting than rain, but everything got coated with ice. The roads weren't too bad. The municipalities got the sand trucks out doing the main intersections very quickly. They can't go everywhere, though. While in town during my daughter's … Continue reading It’s getting cold out there
Today was that day of the month that always reminds me how much I dislike shopping! 😀 Actually, it went very well, all things considered. So I'm happy about that. I got an early start to doing my rounds, which meant it was still very dark as I switched out the memory card on the … Continue reading And early start in the dark
My daughter and I were coming home when I spotted something on the road, right at the corner I was turning at. A red sided garter snake! I was very happy to see it; I've seen so very few this year. Unfortunately, it wouldn't move away. My daughter got out and tried to shoo it … Continue reading Bonus Critter, pre-op update and more
I haven't made a solid post in a while, so it's time to catch up on things. The short version is pretty simple. I'm tired. So tired. Which is actually one of the reasons I bit the bullet and saw the doctor a few days ago. My husband and I have the same doctor, so … Continue reading It’s been a few days
Today has been a day to stay inside, where it's cooler - and to allow my body to recover from yesterday a bit more. Which means I'm feeling decidedly unproductive. I did manage to finally clean the windows on the outside, around the house, and on the inside in the sun room. The kittens didn't … Continue reading Staying cool
I called several companies to get estimates to get our roof done. The first one came by today to do an estimate. He spent quite a bit of time checking things out and taking measurements, after we did a walk around. During the walk around, we talked about the chimney from the wood furnace that … Continue reading First Estimate
