0630/11th April 2021 It wasn't how I intended to start my day. In fact, I hadn't got as far as even thinking about it. My morning routine has to get done first and today, for reasons unknown, I suddenly took notice of a bush that grows at the end of the driveway. Or did. I … Continue reading Downs and ups
Yeti's Kitty Suites, April 2011. Joey, Bridget, Macy Here's a question for cat people: Specifically, it's a question for people who live with gray cats. Over the years, I've lived with several.

1824/8th April 2021 When the weather is fine, as it's been recently, in the late afternoon I become glued to the window, watching the changing light. How, I wonder, did I survive so many years, living in suburbia? Two and a half years on, I am still discovering things. Drawn by the luminescence of the … Continue reading ‘bye Winter?
7th April 2021 Squelch! One of the sensations I enjoy as a result of nerve damage, is that when I walk, my right foot always feels that it is in deep mud. So when I stepped in the bird bath this morning, it served to enhance the sensation. My left foot enjoys something different. While … Continue reading Hope
0615/7th April 2021 It's nice having long, light evenings, but some days I could do with less early light. It always wakes me up and it's hard to roll over when there may be something worth seeing outside. This morning I was all prepared to say "nuts" and at least languish a bit longer, if … Continue reading Contrails
6th April 2021 Early clouds that provided a fiery dawn pealed away, leaving us with a clear blue sky from horizon to horizon. A breeze out of the North still provides a slight chill but I'm in no hurry to rush into Summer which will be here soon enough. Mr Sleepy put in an early … Continue reading Faux pas
0631/5th April 2021 Having dealt more swiftly than usual, with the Monday morning emails, I found my brain parked in neutral, and my body a bit too cool. The phone rang and as it was a local number I thought it could be one of my new medical people, but it was a recorded voice … Continue reading Cool
0820/4th April 2021 Children of a confirmed atheist, Peter and I only ever associated Easter with chocolate eggs. And there were those sugar eggs, as well, the ones that had a window at one end, displaying a cute picture of some kind inside. Usually, I think, it was a reason for a family visit that … Continue reading Bunnies
2nd April 2021 It was a busy time at the bird feeders this morning, after I filled them up and emptied ice from the bird baths. They are looking decidedly bashed after all the hammering of the past 3 months! We are still not quite done with cold nights. In fact, it's been trying really … Continue reading Times
1st April 2021 On the way to the village this morning, I made Grant stop so I could catch some shots of water droplets on the trees and bushes, results not being terribly successful although I do like the colours of wet vegetation! Especially the lichens. Today it was Grant's turn to get a Covid … Continue reading All wet
