I’m trying out my green thumb finally – now I will see how the deer enjoy it.  I cleaned up the area around our front walk Sunday and 5 construction trash bags later I was ready to plant a portion of it.  Planting here is so much different than CA – in CA there were […]

Stalking deer

Friday, April 7th, 2006

As I was walking down the front walk two full grown deer and two babies wondered into the front yard.  The two full grown deer began to approach me on the sidewalk as I walked towards them (but really towards the garage).  They just kept coming, so I did what every sensible person would do […]

Starting week 3!

Monday, April 3rd, 2006

Week 3 is coming up, and I cannot wait.  I am really enjoying my job, and the people I work with appreciate having me there.  We have been down hard with a nasty cold.  It has taken all life out of me for about 2 weeks now – I don’t remember feeling so exhausted after […]

Furry pizza…

Wednesday, March 29th, 2006

Once again we had no where else for Boulder to sleep so she was forced to sleep in an empty pizza box I had put next to the back door for recycling.  We actually had walked by her quite a few times before we noticed where she had decided to sleep.  Poor, poor Boulder.

Boulder vs. Deer

Sunday, March 19th, 2006

Our cat, Boulder, was stared down by a deer in our front yard on Sunday morning.  Dave had gone out to throw a couple carrots at the deer (they were up to their knees and sometimes their chests in snow), and Boulder came out and sat just off the front entry eating a piece of […]

Beautiful morning

Monday, March 13th, 2006

The cats can’t sleep on mornings such as this – the sun starts reflecting off the snow very early.  I was lucky enough to catch some pictures of this beautiful morning. Sunrise was incredible. I got a kick out of the little table and the lights out front.   As usual, we have a terrible […]

Snowplow towed from outside our house

Sunday, March 12th, 2006

The mystery of why a snowplow was parked outside our house was explained. It broke down and was waiting for a tow (so of course I had to take some photos). It was quite the ordeal to remove the plow from the front of the truck and then figure out how to transport it down […]

Knifty Knitter…

Sunday, March 12th, 2006

I am hooked on my knifty knitter.  Part of the reason why I need a job is to support my yarn habit so I can continue to make things, and also I want to buy the long purple knifty knitter and a small wooden knifty knitter like hoop that makes baby booties.  I quickly mastered […]
