March

Hello my friends! Here it is March and the weather has been so crazy. There is currently a stiff cold breeze blowing against the cottage and I have a couple space heaters going to take the chill off inside. I am planning to turn the oven on to bake some sweet potatoes in a little while to help warm the place a little more. The furnace ran out of fuel oil and Scott went and bought 10 gallons of diesel to get us through until "Spring" but he couldn't get the furnace to start back up and we didn't have the money to call the repair man out to get it going again and that is why we are using the space heaters. I am really hoping we are out of this little house before next Winter... fingers and toes crossed.

 Howie and Tippy have been doing their best to keep us warm when the temperature dropped this month and of course handed out lots of kitty love as well.

 Amelia (above) and Bernadette (below) got their yearly checkups and shots early in the month. They're doing pretty good for a couple old gals.


 Piper (above) has a new playmate, Coal (below). Coal showed up out on  the back porch one day and decided to stay but our 3 cats didn't like him one bit so we asked Greg if he would like to have him . So Coal met Piper... didn't go too well and the first week he was there she growled and hissed constantly but now he has sort of grown on her and they play together. Both Piper and Coal had check-ups and Coal has been neutered.
 These two photos of Coal were taken when he had just returned home from having "the surgery". He is tiny and only weighed 4.4 pounds at his check-up and the Vet says he won't get much bigger.

 This is a "Zine" made out of one sheet of 8 1/2x11" cardstock. They are alot of fun to make and swap with other crafters.
 This showed up on the cedar tree by the driveway here at the cottage and it turns out it is bad for apple and pear trees as it cast spores that cause deformities in the fruits. It caught my eye as it looked so creepy cool. Now I am hoping no one near by has fruit trees that will be damaged by this fungi. Here is a link to the article on it - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gymnosporangium

Today is the first day of Spring - HAPPY SPRING YOU ALL!!!!

  2. Huh. That is one nifty looking fungi. Almost looks like something from under the sea...or from Dr. Seuss! Any idea why Coal will be so small? Is this just like some humans being tall and some being short? That is one wee little cat, right there! Or maybe mine have always been obese and huge. ;) It might be nice, perpetually kitten-like. I'm glad he found a home and that Piper learned to tolerate him. Introducing Johnny to Ginger was rough going, but now Ginger is trying to learn to play with JD even!

    1. The tiny cats are caused by inbreeding and over population.
