The girls and I had to make a run into town for them to pick up and sign their tax paperwork (no unhappy surprises for them, thank God!). It was a gorgeous day, so when we took advantage of being in town to play some Pokemon Go, we also took advantage of a Pokemon Go … Continue reading Beach Weather!
I must admit, I've been very spoiled for the last decade or so. Today was one of those days of realization. Why? I went shopping for Easter. When we were living in the city, it was such a simple thing to run out to the grocery store. We'd found stores that carried things, or varieties … Continue reading Spoiled!
Drove out to get the mail today. First, the good news. Our daughters now both have their new medical care cards. Yay! The bad news. My husband and I got our forms and photo copy of our birth certificates back. Two problems. They want a more legible copy of my husband's birth certificate. His had … Continue reading Un. Be. Lievable. Part Two
Okay, so it's after midnight, which mean's these are technically critter visits of yesterday, but it's not THAT far past midnight, so I'm still counting this as Saturday. 😀 We had several visits this morning by single deer. The first one was out there before I had a chance to bring feed out. We'd had … Continue reading Critter Visitors of the Day
It took a while - and perhaps it was found when we weren't there to see - but today, a white tail deer finally showed up at the deer feed we've been leaving out. What a beauty, too! This is so exciting!! (photo taken by P., using a Nikon D80 and a 70-300mm Nikkor lens) … Continue reading We Got Deer!
One of the things I was looking forward to - hoping for - with this move, is to be able to sleep again. The few times I came out here to visit, I slept better than I had in decades, not realizing how poor quality my sleep had become. For all the weird things going … Continue reading To Sleep. Perchance to Dream.
The deer have yet to discover the feed we've started leaving out for them. Other critters, on the other hand, are appreciating it. So far, we've seen some Blue Jays, my daughter spotted a Grey Jay, and of course there have been plenty of chickadees and squirrels. Here are some photos my husband got through … Continue reading Wildlife Visitors
Coming from the background that I have has found me making some very interesting observations over the years. Growing up here on this farm, I essentially grew up as if I were part of another generation. We were subsistence farmers; we basically grew enough to support ourselves and make a bit of money selling a … Continue reading Oh, What a Pain!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas celebration. May the Christmas season continue to be one of peace and many blessings. For us, today seems to be working out as a day of recovery! There is still a possibility of carolers coming by, but I don't know if this place is still on the … Continue reading Recovery.
My younger daughter is some kind of cat whisperer! Last night, when she headed out to give the outside cats some warm water for the night, The Mothman came out. He's been hanging out more often, and even taken over one of the old dog houses at times. The other cats are nervous around him, … Continue reading Cat Whisperer, and more
