Happy Easter! Ginger was very active and playful this morning. Usually, I leave the doors to the sun room open while I feed the critters, and the outside cats are free to go in and out for a while. They seem perplexed that they can't do that right now. Ginger, meanwhile, wanted to play with … Continue reading Easter Ginger
It started to snow last night, and continued all night. Where we live, it was still a light now - other areas got much more - but it was enough to be a test for the kibble house! The inside is completely free of snow. 🙂 Unfortunately, three of the containers were on the ground … Continue reading The kibble house is working – and creeper is creeping again
The snow was gone in a lot of places before the storm hit a couple of days ago. I could even see green grass through last year's thatch. So it was no surprise that we've seen virtually no deer. Even in the trail cam facing where they cross the road to our place went from … Continue reading Tracking

I only had a vague idea of where it was, since I was a little too distracted to notice landmarks or anything. 😉 It was the only area … Continue reading Found the spot

Although temperatures have become relatively mild lately (we're at -7C right now, with a wind chill of -12C), when you have to spend several minutes just to bundle up in layers and heave on the snow boots, going in … Continue reading Winter “fun”

Locally, the snow started in the late afternoon, but to the south and east of us, I'm hearing there was a lot more. We have a bright, sunny day right now, … Continue reading Winter says hello!
It snowed most of the night, which means that when I did my outside stuff this morning, the only tracks in the snow were those of animals. It was interesting to follow them along, and try and figure out what story they were telling. The cats' outside food and water bowl area was just covered … Continue reading Tracks and Trails
