Odds and Ends

7 Dec

The cattle tank is working well, but I can definitely tell when it’s cold and windy.

Ava (I think) and Pretzel

As long as it keeps working, I’ll live with ice walls.

The goose also is a good indicator of the weather.  If she’s got her beak tucked under her wing, it’s cold.

Miss Goose

Sunday was nice–in the fifties–so I gave her a big bucket of water to do a head dunk.

I really need to get a new pool out for her, but it’s too late this fall for that.

Bob is also spending a lot of time in the house.  He will still go out to avoid using cat litter and to do some hunting, but he spends a lot of time inside now.

(I also got the wild grape vine cut out)

He is really showing his age.

He is still able to jump up into the window to let me know he wants in.  So I guess he’s still doing okay.

The peacock also likes to go out on the days when it is sunny and warm. And he’s feeling much better.

Finally, guess who turned six years old today.

Sky!  Happy birthday, boy!

I Got Nothing

5 Dec

The days are short.  I am working, doing chores, milking and then I’m pretty much done for the day.  That means I’ve really got nothing to blog about.

I did see the eagle flying over again this weekend.

I suppose, I could just keep sharing cat and dog pictures.

Dang. I missed getting a picture of Tiger.  I suppose I could share my latest knitting project.

I’m knitting an afghan

Actually, I started this afghan over a year ago as a temperature blanket, but I figured out I did a horrible job calculating the size, and it’s way too big.

After a break from knitting anything and then finishing my last project, I decided to come back to this one.

Love the front texture and smooth back

I will have to quit by June something, and it’s still going to be a full sized blanket.

Anyhow, I’m also upgrading more things in the house.  I showed the living room furniture, but I am planning more because I need to get the house and furnishings all ready for me to retire.

I moved the lemon tree to the kitchen.

I’m optimistic it will be in a reasonable time. I hope.

Holiday Cheer

1 Dec

As difficult as this fall has been, I decided I needed some holiday cheer.  It ended up with me deep cleaning the closet upstairs (which was a good thing for a stroll down memory lane).

Then I did a little decorating.  I wanted to use my schefflera as a Christmas tree.

I decided it wasn’t going to work for lights, but I did find some light snowflake ornaments that I could put on it.

I also decorated my little tree.

I added the ornament my mom and sister made.

It’s my MJ.

MJ (from 2013)–I love that nose.

MJ was not unknown to wear a Santa hat

The cats were tortured.

Just a little.

Herbie wiggled too much to get a decent picture.

I like how things turned out.

I am really looking forward to this holiday season.
