Sometimes…

Sometimes you just have to jump for joy… It’s so funny when they do this. Yoyo really cracked me up this morning. He is so comical when he tries to fly. They all jump in the water, then they get so excited they have to jump out and FLY. You can tell they do it…

Not in full bloom…

The duckies have a new pool… They are in it almost constantly. Of course they scarpered when I came out to photograph them! The blue pool was getting a bit ridiculous as they had outgrown it and were swimming in circles, like one of those carnival games at the fair. Thank you H! He got…

A rainy May day…

I was away from home 8 days and in that time the ducks turned more white… It was very surprising. H said he went to check on them one day and overnight it seemed they had turned whiter. He was worried they were sick or something…on his watch…haha. (Check out those beans! ) It’s been…

The wind blew my head off…

That’s how it’s felt lately. Too windy for my taste. This is the first day I have been able to be inside for any amount of time without the ducks (i.e. Turtle) going berserk. Perhaps the wind has calmed them, as well. Yesterday was more like this… Not just beneath my chair, but ON my…

Ready for the day…

My ducks are in a row… …literally and figuratively. By that I mean I got a good amount of sleep, tea is made, lunch is started (my giant sweet potato will take a while to cook), cats are fed, kittens have been checked on and mama fed, computer work out of the way…I’m ready to…

T&G are mean girls…

Noodle…calmly sitting by the duck’s pool…looks innocent, doesn’t it? Noodle…who isn’t afraid of water, or the ducks…who has lurked around the ducks since I got them, been too close to them for comfort…Noodle…who gets in everyone’s face whether they want her there or not…who has pestered everyone in this household within an inch of their…

Sunshine…

The past two days have been beautiful. The cats think so, too. There’s Buggar, sunning herself on Path. They love the Path. I’ve hardly been inside it’s been so nice. I’ve managed to get some ground dug up along the north side of the fence. I have a lot of things I want to plant…

The hawk, the cats, and the ducks…

Soooooo….I just about had a heart attack today. I had been outside all day (about four hours) doing this… I was super tired, ready to go inside for some tea to warm me up (it’s cold and rainy AGAIN!) and to do some stitching, writing, reading, relaxing…or whatever. I had been inside for maybe 20…

Why so cold?

How was March any different than February? H asked me that this weekend when we were outside. There wasn’t much difference, really, except in March it was cold and wet, instead of cold and dry. We got a ton more rain last night. Just for grins I put the duck’s old tubs under the shed…

Goodbye tree…

I woke up to this today… No electricity, cable and electric lines down, chainsaws and strange men in MY yard…with almost no notice. We knew the tree was coming down, but didn’t know when. Our neighbor, who was apparently informed of all the details, denied knowing anything when telling us the tree would come down…

Pillows…and peas…

Last night I was so tired, I went to bed at 7:30! Of course, I didn’t stay there. There were many trips up and back to get supplies for this… Yes, a new project! I was inspired by Jude’s pillow¬†and wanted to make one of my own. I had just seen her pillow project and…

A gray day…

I woke up early this morning – minus a couple hour’s precious sleep – to the most horrendous leg cramp I have every experienced in my life. Hours later, it still hurts to walk. I think it must be the result of all the bending and maneuvering I did yesterday when fortifying the new duck…
