On camera

I've set up cameras in my coop. It's fun checking on them at random times. I've noticed there are almost always a few (up to ten) sparrows inside helping themselves to a snack. The chickens don't seem to care.

I have four indoor cats. I noticed one of the kittens will never scratch on a post or that curved scratcher in the photo. To save my rugs and carpet I ordered some flat scratchers and it worked! He loves them and the other cats join in.

Too, too hot. Not even cooling off enough at night to warrent opening the windows. I don't know how my sister in Texas stands it when their heat index hits 120. 

I have to be extra careful to keep up with the chicken water because...

Hens doing what they really, really want.

Dad doesn't seem to notice.

It's all good.

The brain struggles

A couple weeks ago I bought a box of oxyclean for the laundry. I remember picking it up with one hand from the trunk and noticing how light it was (shrinkflation). And then it disappeared. 

When I started looking for it, I assumed I got distracted and set it down in a random place. I checked the garage, porch and basement. Then I checked them again. And again. 

Today I was in the basement for another issue, and found myself scanning for the blue box. Wondering why I didn't just put it on top of the washing machine and save all this bother, I finally focused on the clear plastic bag of oxyclean powder sitting right where it should. Why couldn't I see it before? Because I had already taken it out of the box to recycle cardboard, but I wasn't looking for a bag.

Living large

Made this homemade pizza tonight on lavash bread. Fast, easy, and yummy. My kind of cooking. Couldn't even tell the cheese was fat free.

I've been looking for a thin crust pizza in individual sizes without luck. Now I know half of this is plenty, I can just cut the bread down and make as much as needed.
