Oy vey. It's past midnight as I write this, and it has suddenly become a rather unpleasant night! I was returning from the bathroom when, while walking past the old basement door, I heard a splashing sound I should not have been hearing, so I went down to take a look. The septic backed up … Continue reading Well, it’s a good thing we cleaned up the outhouse
We've had ourselves a chillier morning today! Light snow, and bitterly cold winds from the south is what greeted me this morning, when I went out to do my rounds. Kitty loaf is not impressed. It does look pretty, though! Switching out the micro disk cards on the new trail cam has gotten somewhat easier. … Continue reading Delivery Fail, and coming unhinged
Okay, first the fun stuff. I made a much delayed trip to the post office (using my face shield for the first time). There were several packages waiting for me, including one that had these - being guarded by a Susan! That gouge will allow me to carve much deeper than the curved blade of … Continue reading New toys, and this is un-flippin’ real!! 😀
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
Oh, what a day this turned out to be. I'm looking at the time and wondering why it's not several hours later, because this day has felt much longer than normal! But first, I share the pleasantly unexpected thing. As I finished up my outdoor morning routine and headed for the house, I noticed something … Continue reading Unexpected
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.
What a runaround today has been. But first, I will share something to make you smile! Upside down, furry friends. Two Face and Dave were busily playing, with Two Face grabbing, licking and biting Dave's head and him... letting her. 😀 At about 1am. I just had to turn on a light and get pictures. … Continue reading Good grief
Yesterday was our day to do our monthly shop, which always makes for a long day. We actually decided not to do a full shop, though, and will go back later in the month. Specifically, we didn't get all the cat kibble and litter we usually do. It gets really hard to pack the van … Continue reading Long Day
I am thrilled to say, the problem with our septic has been dealt with AND the pump itself still works! We're still not sure why it stopped pumping completely. More on that later. The whole job was much, much bigger than we expected. Also, my brother is a saint. God bless him! I don't know … Continue reading It’s finally done!
