Lots in my head…

I have lots of thought in my head today, lots of feelings. It’s been like this for several days now. I had meant to post sooner, but at one point felt a bit overwhelmed by recent events. I post obits on the news site H and I run together. Sometimes it’s a bit sobering. And…

Getting on…

I feel a bit like I’m just getting on with things. I’m still recovering from stomach flu and a strained (torn?) hip. I managed to walk a half mile on the back yard path this morning, but didn’t feel so great. I tackled this dress a few days ago. I bought it online and really…

Snow and more cats…

This weekend was one of those weekends where I felt I had no control over anything. The weather turned weird, snow in April… The ducks didn’t mind. Molly, who has been about to burst with kittens for days, is MIA. I’d managed to get her to stay in the duck house during the day a…

Cat calamities…

I kicked a cat yesterday. Sounds shitty, doesn’t it? Buzz, who is quite a large cat, has begun acting aggressively towards two of the female cats, Molly and Olive, both of whom are very pregnant. Yesterday he wouldn’t leave them alone, even though his sister, Molly, was screaming. He was relentless, chasing, pouncing on her…

Shedding some light…

I haven’t posted here in a while. Until the past few days I hadn’t stitched in quite a while. Here’s what’s been happening in the sewing room… Bunting. Why? Because I saw the idea in a magazine and liked it. Because I want to use up this old fabric that’s been around for years. Because…

In like a lion…

Wind is just as bad as rain or snow or freezing temperatures when you have things you want to do outside. Olive is so smart. She took advantage of the overturned barrels to find some shelter. I love how crafty animals can be. Cats really dislike wind. When I spotted Olive, I opened the back…

Playing catch-up…

I have a bunch of photos I never got around to posting, so here goes. I quite like this one… Taken after that dusting of snow we had the other day. Today is much warmer, thank goodness. I was able to pour the duckies a bath using the outside tap, which has been frozen up…

Gone tomorrow…

I watched the ducks swim in ice water yesterday. Even though I know they come equipped with a down comforter, it still amazes me they can do that. Of course, haven’t we all seen ducks floating in an icy pond as if it were the middle of summer? And in my kitchen, sitting in boxes,…

They’re Fired!

Buggar and Weanie… two of the fattest, laziest cats ever…are FIRED! They have allowed a mouse the run of the house for the past week. H and I were having breakfast this morning when said mouse came out to see what was going on, running all around the stove and our kitchen, right there in…

A heavy morning…

I woke up this morning with some things on my mind. They bothered me for quite a while, as it’s a problem I’m not sure what to do about. One of those things that seems to plague you throughout life, something where there’s a tendency to blame others for the situation, but if you look…

Willow and what not…

My day was an unplanned busy one. I ran errands…store for a few groceries, hayseed store for more duck grain…and to return a big bag of grain infested with bugs…weevils???…that are all over my house now…gas since H had left the car on E plus new windshield fluid which was also on E…and thrift shop….

Eclipsed…

Still posting from the iPad…not real fun. Anyway, I was outside during the eclipse for a bit ┬áThe light was so odd… The greens had such an emerald, blue green tint to them, almost sickly really… I read a brief story about the Navajo and how they stay inside and do not observe the eclipse,…
