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,…

Pure bliss…

Today feels like fall. The weather is so perfect, 70s, a gentle breeze, that I had the strong desire to take off my dress and walk around in the garden naked. I probably should have, but I have neighbors. I do have a fenced-in yard. I probably should have. We have loads of tomatoes. For…

A weird week…

I don’t know what to say about this week, other than I have felt very strange. I really didn’t do any of my normal things. Perhaps it was time for a shift, a shift in perspective and habits. It did feel good to crochet, although working with two strands of heavy cotton yarn is hard…

Waiting…

I’m sitting here waiting for my father-in-law to come start my car. The battery has died. I knew better than to keep driving it so seldom for short trips. I was too lazy last time I drove it to keep driving for 20 minutes to charge up the battery. I wanted to run errands before…

Progress!

I’m happy to report today – actually tonight – I have made progress in the studio! The main progress being the much-needed addition of a proper chair in which to work. For comparison’s sake, here is the chair I had been using… Not much to look at, is it? It wasn’t the worst chair I’ve…

The happy cat…

I wish that title was about having found a new home for one of the kittens, but, alas, they are all still here. There’s no room in the inn, so to speak. After making a number of attempts to take the kittens to the shelter, including a for-sure appointment last week, we were turned down…

July and stuff…

So, we’re well into… I noticed yesterday I hadn’t even registered the new calendar photo for the month. It’s like I was seeing it for the first time. Weird. In the back yard some of the sunflower plants are a good two feet over my head, most still not flowering yet. However, I did notice…
