With so many branches of all sizes fallen during the storm, I'm still picking up ones I've missed around the yard, along with new ones that have fallen since. While I have been staying away from working on the outer yard, I did notice a fairly large branch had fallen near the chain link fence, … Continue reading Still falling, still alive, and kitten news
Things got rather interesting, yesterday! A series of thunderstorms made their way through our area. Our power flickered off and on about 6 times, that I know of. The first time it happened, I was on my desktop computer, when suddenly, it was off. !! Thankfully, I wasn't working on anything that was affected by … Continue reading Storms and stuff
Today is a day of all kinds of progress. And some not-progress. Some progress is happening as I write this, but that will get its own post. 😀 Progress: mowing in new places. After many delays, I was finally able to start mowing yesterday, only to have it start raining. Not that I'm complaining about … Continue reading Progress
This morning, as I headed out to give the outside cats their food and warm water, I was very pleased to see that the water bowl was still on the warming set up! It was completely empty, but it was there, at least! Which meant no new ice on the concrete floor. I think we're … Continue reading No escort this morning!
That spindly little spruce tree I was able to leave, while clearing the spruce grove, seems to be looking healthier - now that it's getting more light after the bigger trees were removed from the fence line, and it is no longer crowded by underbrush. I think it's got a very good chance of surviving. … Continue reading Spruce tips

Having been able to clear as much of the spruce grove perimeter as I have, I now include that as well. … Continue reading Getting feisty!
Today it started raining ice pellets, and now it is gently snowing. It looks so nice and peaceful here. Hard to believe this area was full of junk, just a few months ago! The Re-Farmer
While taking my walk around the yard, I noticed a new tree mushroom by the collapsing log shed in the yard. Unlike the others I've found, this one was quite low down, so this photo was me holding my phone under it and hoping for the best! I'm happy with how it turned out. It … Continue reading Big Tree ‘shroom!
The larger of the orange tabbies now has a name. Meet Jim. I'm told there's a tangential story behind this name. I don't know what it is. 😀 Jim wasn't too keen on me coming closer to get his photo, and kept moving around. From here, though, you can see the "platform" the cats like … Continue reading Hello, down there
Spotted out the kitchen window, while making lunch. I know we're going to have to take this tree down, to protect the house, but when that does eventually happen, I'm going to miss watching the cats playing in it. And them, watching me back. 😀 The Re-Farmer
