    Congratulations, Kassaundra! :)

    Nice and freezing outside this morning.

    Hello Sooner & Steph :)

    I've had a coyote visitor over the past week. My dog, bless her heart, does her best, but I don't think the big white barking dog is intimidating enough. The 'yote showed up around noon one day, came back same day a few minutes later. After I walked out, it stayed away, but it came back a day or so later. That time at night. I think it's testing to see how watchful my dog is. She's been rilled up since, on super alert.

    Time to draw a beed on that yote! I haven't been hearing them lately here but the time is almost here for them to start having litters & I will have to worry then. I had a really bold one last year.

    Coffee is alway the first thing Steph! Now it's time for a shower!

    I dont really have to worry about critters around here. If we start hearing them, and coyotes we thick last year, I just lock the dogs outside for the night. It usually takes a few weeks before we hear anything again.

    Morning Okies!

    A skunk wandered into one of the live traps last night. When I let the cats out, two went to investigate and got a full-face greeting from the stink bomb. I couldn't catch the smaller of the two cats, but the larger is now in a squeeze cage in the tub, under the hair dryer. We had an unfriendly cat years and years ago, and bathing her was dangerous, even after she was declawed. The vet recommended a squeeze cage, so we got a cat washing cage and could then bathe her without any blood letting. I'm glad we kept the cage. I would have been torn to pieces by the stinky barn kitty when I washed her. She's nodding under the hair dryer right now. The other kitty is just going to have to deal with the stink if she's not going to let me wash her. I hope she doesn't get sick cleaning herself. [​IMG]

    Sooner - Beekeeping classes are over. Now it's time to read, read, read. I want to learn as much as I can about bee psychology and hive management before my bees arrive.

    P&B - I think you're absolutely right about the wax versus the plastic foundation. My foundation sheets are made from wax.

    ..... Looks like stinky kitty is now only mildly obnoxious smelling kitty. She can go back out, and I need to make sure the heated water dishes at the barn are working. Have a great day everyone.
