Valentine's Day has come and gone once again. Around here, even the cats requested a little red in their day.
Today it is so cold...."how cold", you ask. Well, let's just say I raise my tea-cup full of steaming hot chamomile tea with organic honey to whoever invented thermal long-underwear. :)
Heading out to feed the birds.
I have a pesky 'murder of crows' at the feeders but it was so darn cold today that I gladly fed them. They are gluttons and will keep the other birds away while they eat.
Here they are feasting on sunflower seeds.
No doubt this was the coldest day yet and still the chickadees, nuthatch, blue-jays, sparrows and woodpeckers arrived for some food.
Here are a few more photos of the goings-on at the mouse-house over the last few weeks.
Adding some tongue and groove to the sitting area.
Well, we've got to snazz up the place somehow.
Kane snoopervising. :)
The crew have been keeping Timmy's in business.
I'm sure I've thrown out a hundred of these cups.
So far we've won a doughnut and coffee. No car. :(
Hanging the second door.
Hanging cupboards and fixtures.
The little kitchen is inside the dormer.
The window looks out to the feeders.
Wow...these men are messy.
This will be the dining corner.
I'll have to figure out how to squeeze visitors in to enjoy a cup of tea.
Am I boring you yet? Lots more photos to come as rooms were completed.
After a long day at the property, I lay at the fire with Annie tonight. She was spotted washing Audrey today so I believe her days are getting better and life carries on. She has always been rather clingy with me but now she wants to sit on my knee the second I sit. My son dropped by this morning and she immediately jumped up on his knee and got comfy for the visit. He sat and stroked her gently and she cuddled right in.
I think our move will be good for this wonderful cat.
A new adventure. She'll be so busy investigating that she'll not have time to miss her friend.
