While doing my rounds, before going to the city, I went to the usual spots to see if any more branches had come down during the night. None had, but when I reached the fence near the pump shack, I heard something moving on the metal table beside it. It took me a while, but … Continue reading New baby sighting, and washer update
*sigh* We checked the washing machine. Sort of. After shifting the dryer, then moving the washing machine, my darling daughter squirmed her way behind it to see what she could see. Besides cat fur dust bunnies from hell and miscellaneous objects that somehow made their way under the washer and dryer... ...and the round plastic … Continue reading Well, crud. Again.
Not too long ago, I wrote about my daughters installing a new kitchen faucet. One of the issues was, we have no shut off valves. There is one main shut off valve that shuts off water to the entire house. Today, that became a problem. One of my daughters had gone into the basement to … Continue reading Well, that sucks… and why is that there?
After all that work to resize the replacement door for the sun room, painting it, carving out the recesses (and fixing my goof), touching up the paint, the door finally got hung up today! Aaaaannnnd... It doesn't fit. Part of the problem is the hinges. The original hinges on the door were put back on, … Continue reading Replacement door: that didn’t quite work
One of the odd things we have on this house is this window cover that the visiting goat discovered. When I was a kid growing up here, this did not exist, but I think I understand why it's here. It is over the window we used to toss firewood through, when we had the wood … Continue reading Aaaannnd… something else to fix
My daughter and I went into the shed to get the door I was thinking of using to replace the broken door on the sun room. The replacement door is in pretty good shape, and even has complete hinges attached, so we took the old door off, hinges and all. We did not, however, replace … Continue reading Nooooot quite!
First, an update on the kitties! Beep Beep came half out of her baby nest to have a bit of food while I was there, with the babies peacefully snoozing in a pile. I was even able to get a picture, despite her best efforts to use her butt to block my attempts. 😀 She … Continue reading Update, up and broken things
I just got a call from the garage about our van. Apparently, he's been trying to call me since yesterday, on both the land line and my cell phone, and couldn't get through. I have no idea why; my mother phoned earlier, and got through no problem. I had just got off the phone with … Continue reading Van update
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?
