Pre-Thanksgiving Prep

Miss Madeline Meadows has been piling up the kills. Monday she left a shrew on the mat near her food and water bowls. When I went out to feed the garage cats yesterday morning, there was a dead mouse lying there. A short time…

Miss Meadows

EJ arrived home safely from his hunting trip. I’m glad he gets to enjoy hunting with his friend, but I’m always glad when he gets home. The house feels empty without him. Today was an extremely busy day. I got up at the usual…

Enchanting Critters

I had to laugh yesterday when several hours after EJ had left to go hunting on the other side of the state, I looked out of the window and saw four deer standing on the hill on our own five acres. I sent him…

Dramas in the Enchanted Forest

This is the second morning that I’ve gotten up before 5 a.m. Yesterday morning Kee-Kee woke me by pawing at my head. This sounds weird, but I am very sensitive to light at night and if someone turns on a light anywhere in the…

The First Day

The weather has been very changeable. One day it is cold and snowy and the next it is warmer and rainy. At the moment, as I write this, it is snowing.  The National Weather Service is forecasting that this winter “above average precipitation is…

Stories in Black and White

I have been participating in a Facebook challenge. This may seem like a no big deal, whatever, kind of thing, but I almost never, never, ever participate in group challenges. Never. This might be the first, in fact. I recognize and accept that a lot…

Home Again, Home Again

Yesterday was a very beautiful day. When I wasn’t doing other tasks, I sat in my chair by the window and crocheted as I watched the leaves flying off the trees. Watching falling leaves fills me with joy. I just figured out how to…

Cats, Poultry, and the Snow Fence

After our busy day on Saturday, EJ and I took it easier on Sunday. I did small tasks such as cleaning the house and doing laundry. I spread one straw bale among the raised garden beds to (hopefully) help the plants survive the winter….

Cats, Deer, and Other Stuff

  We had a beautiful mix of winter and autumn on Tuesday, but by Wednesday the snow had disappeared and we were back to autumn. The trees are still beautiful but they are becoming barer as the leaves fly off. The delightful thing about…

When Autumn Meets Winter

This morning, not long after I got out of bed, EJ asked, “Have you looked outside yet?” I know that that always means that we’ve gotten snow. After EJ left for work, I fed all the cats–both inside and outside ones–and then I put…

The Garage Cats

The previous owner of our new cat, Josette, had told us that she had been litter trained when she was younger, but she had been living in their barn for at least a year. I had originally decided to adopt Josette because 1. she’s…

Introducing Josette

This morning EJ and I adopted the newest member of our family. We had intended for the new cat to join Annie and Madeline in the garage so this morning I closed off the pet door after I made sure that both cats were…

Six Degrees of Comfort

Yesterday was chilly and I was cold. I don’t know if I was so cold because the weather went from “warm enough to wear t-shirts” to “cold enough to wear a winter coat and hat” in just a few days. Or maybe the dampness…

Raindrops Keep Falling…

It’s been raining, raining, raining, non-stop since Sunday afternoon. Day and night we hear the pitter-patter drumming of rain on our roof. We’ve had 5-6 inches of rain so far and it is still raining. The weather forecast shows clearing on Thursday and then…

Shrewed Discovery

I named yesterday’s post, “The Killing of the Shrew” because “shrew” made think of Shakespeare’s play, “The Taming of the Shrew.” Last night I asked EJ if he knew why a “shrew” is a description of “a bad-tempered or aggressively assertive woman.” Are the…
