Shenan and the behemoth are still who-knows-where in their Bushwacker. But a few days ago I saw a bright light while looking out my mudroom window at night. Shenan left her shed light on and the shed door open. So going on a month of an open lighted shed! I wonder how...

The Temperature Tease melts the frosted ground and promises months-in-the-making Tempties of garden-spawned goodness... but 'tis a Temporary Tease... until springtime bursts forth in morning glory!

In the meantime, I'm envisioning glowing red orbs of the world's most pe...

A quiet week in Lopstick, nary a chirping bird (that I've heard), nor a creaking tree branch in the winter wind. The neighbors are even quieter than usual. Then again, even with the sun shining bright, I've not ventured out in the cold to make my rounds. Sheenan is sti...

The last week brought cycles of freezing and thawing. One day it's walking weather, the next, it's sub-freezing again. This morning I saw a neighborhood feline walking along the icy path beside my frozen weed patch. Calm and cool (literally) this cat didn't seem to min...

It's been a week of flux: first the temperature shot up from sub-freezing to T-shirts-and-shorts appropriate. This must've triggered a migratory response in Sheenan, as she overnight unpacked her Bushwacker onto her driveway and took off. Now her camping supplies sit o...

Outside, all the grass, plants, and ground are frozen solid. The trees seem frozen too, when their limbs aren't swaying in the bitter wind. So the compost pile Chuck is frozen, and the woodland creatures must break off pieces of my kitchen scraps and carry them back to...

Sheenan, my quirky next-door neighbor, continues to glamp in her driveway. But now she has a new glamping feature. A laser light that directs a beam of pure white through my kitchen window and into my trailer (when the shade is up). The beam is so intense it can be see...

Sheenan's been up to something strange again. From my kitchen window I see her cook, eat, and wash her dishes in her Durango attached to her Bushwacker. All the while, all the vehicle doors are open. I know her trailer is heated -- I can see the smoke coming from the c...

Yesterday I saw a mouse in my kitchen (it looked like a big one, so it could've been a rat). In a flash, it crawled up the cupboards and somehow managed to squeeze through the crack at the top of the cutlery drawer. I've no idea how its fat little body flattened enough...

Lopstick is sub-freezing this week, and the woodland creatures are getting by on frozen twigs and frozen kitchen scraps. After each snowfall, I bundle up and carry my accumulated potato peels, cabbage cores, popcorn kernels, carrot tops, and such to the compost pile. T...
