Intermittent Warm Sun

You've got to make the most of it.

The area around the pond at Client #1's got cleaned today during a hole in the weathers and I got home early enough to utilize more productive sun.



More siding on the cozy cabin. That is about as far as I can go until I put the corner trim board on the right hand side and get the siding done on that side of the door. I could do that with the ladders and keep on siding a bit higher up. To trim that window way up there is going to require the scaffolding though.



The Spots get tossed outside when I leave and the second I come home mama Spot dashes inside. The spotlets seem more interested in being outside when the weather is nice. They need to be coaxed back in half the time.

The weird thing is when I go out, mama Spot wants to come. When I go in she is watching to make sure she doesn't get left out. They do enjoy their garden tours though. There are all kinds of things to scratch and sniff.



I have to check on the progress of things. The daffodils are coming along. More are appearing with each miniature bout of warmth.



The rhododendrons have plenty of flower buds. It'll be a while before that show starts.



The next bout of weather is headed this way.



It is a rain, maybe sleet, maybe snow, maybe rain and sleet and snow event according to the diagnosis.



It seems the low temperatures will be hovering around the low thirties in that indecisive moisture configuration range while this weather passes through. It could be anything and it could be everything.



Then it's gonna get cold again. Back to the teens and twenties for lows. I'll have time to give the shower its fourth and final leak test before I give up in despair and recommend ripping the whole thing out and starting over. Crappy *^@@++!!** shower.

When it warms to kittie warmth they will be out most of the summer. Your cozy cabin is coming right along. Those springy peeps of daffodils etc are a welcome sight.

Sounds like Mama Spot just wants to be where you are, and to know that you'll always let her back in. I think some kitties who were abandoned feel insecure about that. Great job on the siding...we added Hardie last summer and we love it.

One more cat and you will have a herd.

I am sooo sick of WINTER. Glad you are making progress on the cabin, though! It is steadily coming along!

Hi Christopher, it has been a weird up and down weather for us too. We are in a tornado watch, I believe. Raining hard and warmer, with cold a'comin'. Sigh. I love the mama spot has decided she is with you for the long haul, and the babies just follow. That is one smart mother. :-)

Hi Christopher! It's amazing how brown things are now in your photos and in just a few more months it will be all green and flowers will be popping. It is exciting to watch the display.
Your cabin is looking great and I sure hope you get that shower fixed.

Those kitties are too cute!

Cozy cabin looks great. Coming along fine.
Sorry about the leaky shower. Hope the next test will be ok.
Sure is something to watch the Daffies appear like that. The second one for me popped open. It does look different from a distant. Will have to check it out.
Momma spot has realized that you are her savior. You took her in & took excellent care of her & her babies. Animals know.

Gawd I dig your views, especially the horizon shots! I hope your spring doesn't get too interrupted by bad weather...like mine. (Boo hoo! :)
