All the forecasts showed the rains would be passed by this morning. Instead, we've got three large systems heading over us. Which meant the cat food containers I put by the cat house were full of water. At least all the food that was in them was gone, first. I dragged over the saw horses … Continue reading It wasn’t supposed to rain today
A patch of my mother's flowers that she still constantly asks about is now in full bloom. These are all about 3 feet tall. Can you make out the two markers hidden in them? That's where the haskap berries are planted. The flowers are actually cleared away from around them, and they're still hard to … Continue reading Full bloom

I was planning to go to the post office, as I'm expecting some packages, but I think I will wait until Monday! My daughter is working on Saturday, which … Continue reading Just a bit …
So are the juncos. The deer have suddenly stopped coming around, which leaves plenty of seeds for the returning juncos. I haven't seen these guys in ages! I'm certainly glad my mother's appointment had been rescheduled for yesterday and not, say, today. Yesterday was a very pleasant day and the roads were great. If it … Continue reading Winter is back!
