Thinking Ahead to Spring

Thursday, January 19, 2023

We saw some vegetable seeds the other day at Giant Tiger so we decided to grab some sooner than later.

We love the fact that we had a greenhouse came with the home we bought last September. We left the strawberry plants in there, which will carry forward to this year, and the rest was a mess, so looking forward to starting a new grow in it. Fruits and vegetables. The hanging flower baskets that were in there before we have emptied and those will be great for all things on vines. I had some flower seeds but I am passing them along to another friend as with Jake outdoors, the risk will be greater for wasps being around with flowers. So will keep those to a minimum to none. We also want to put grass in all around the the greenhouse and back yard this year, and minimize the concrete blocks. Will think we would sell most of those.

Since we live in a warm Canadian area, Spring will come early I am sure, and so will bugs. Last year there seemed to be an over abundance here of wasps and spiders, so I will be looking for ways to keep those all under control as well, and reading the tips online. What insects do you have in your area that you don't like?

Home Renovations Continue and Something For Jake

Wednesday, January 4, 2023

Loving this new window stand Gerry built for Jake. Back at our old place in Saskatchewan, we had a lower window in the front room and an ottoman of sorts that Jake could jump up on and look out the window. This home the windows are higher, and pets do love to look out the window, so Gerry built him this stand. He used leftover carpet pieces from our bedroom, and wood from the walls we redid in the trailer. A few pieces on the railing were leftovers from the walls he rebuilt.  We didn't have alot of insulation on the outside walls, and although there were some new windows in here, behind the windows he found there was no spray foam around the outer sides of them, leaving big gaps behind the walls for the cold air to get in.

We have plumber set for next Thursday to install some new plumbing to a 1/2 bathroom we built off our bedroom.  Soon this room will be a real working 1/2 bathroom! Woo Hoo- no more walking across the living room and through the kitchen anymore! With back issues still, it will be nice to have it closer. 

Jake  has been on medications for his enlarged heart and a water pill for a couple of weeks but he still hasn't been taking too well to them . We actually didn't even know he had an enlarged heart till he had xrays for his trachea. We have lessened the dose as much as we can and are trying every second day now.. and will see how that goes. The vet said it's important for him to have a good quality of life though so unsure we will be keeping him on the meds long term. He is 13 years old this year- where does the time go!
