Flu Doings and a Fun New App

Posted by mrssmythe on February 1, 2018 in Art, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

Activity ground to a halt here as first Ginger, then I, then, finally, Pepper, came down with the flu. CPT America had the forethought to get a flu shot and escaped….which was a good thing because we definitely needed a well person here to dispense medicine and buy popsicles. The three of us spent a […]

Continued Cold and Snow

Posted by mrssmythe on January 15, 2018 in Chickens, Crafting, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

Snow and frigid temperatures continue – except for one strange day when we reached 60 degrees and all of the snow melted in a matter of hours.

What’s Up with Mr. Wa?

Posted by mrssmythe on July 12, 2017 in Critters |

I often get requests for photos/posts about the cats – specifically Mr. Wa. And, while I’d like to oblige, this can be hard because Mr. Wa doesn’t do a lot. In fact, until recently, we rarely saw him. He had a tendency to lurk in the basement most of the day, or up in the comfortable […]
