Buckland Farm Market Saves the Day :)

Finally a whole day off.  It’s about time and it was the perfect day for it!  It’s 5 PM and it is still 70 degrees outside.  When I was driving earlier, the sun was burning my skin.

I got a lot of stuff done today.  The first thing I did this morning was wash both propane bottles.  One of the bottles was empty so after it was all clean, I put it behind the seat in the Evil Twin.  The tanks were filthy after all these summer months outside and uncovered.  I wanted them all clean for when I put the new vinyl cover on them.

I stopped by Buckland Farm Market to talk to Bill about the straw bales that I needed to use as skirting for my trailer.  Bill gave me an awesome deal and will even deliver them to my home.  He will either send them sometime late this afternoon or sometime next week.  I am such a happy camper.  After these are installed, I will truly be ready for a worry free winter! :)

After getting a few veggies and a loaf of Apple Walnut Bread, I went to check on my mail and pick up some cream for my coffee.  Then I went and had my propane bottle refilled at a gas station on the way back home.  I was really hoping that I could get the refill at Buckland Farm Market, but Bill told me that they are not yet set up to sell propane refills.  Hopefully in the future.  That would be great.  I’d much rather leave my money there than at a gas station.

Here is a photo of my propane bottles covered with the vinyl cover.  I think it will be much easier to work with than the hard cover.


My little pussy is worn out.  She was outside with me while I was wrapping the last bit of water hose with bubble wrap and removing items from the sides of the trailer to get ready for the straw bales.  She had such a good time chasing bugs and leaves and climbing the trees. 

When I took her back inside she went straight for her litter box.  Made me laugh that she doesn’t want to poop and pee outside in the yard.  Then she dived for her food.  LOL…She’s now laid out on the sofa dozing.

This is my pussy every morning after I get out of the shower.



She spends about 20 minutes sitting in there….looking around.  I have no idea what the fascination is.  Maybe she likes to sit there because the floor is warm from the hot water?

Well, I’m going to fix myself a cup of Bigelow’s Vanilla Chai Tea, with raw sugar and canned milk, vacuum  and call it a day.  :)


  1. may cats head straight for my tub too. paddy boy sits there and looks down the drain. for what i don't know either. crazy thing.

  2. I keep forgetting to tell you...Brighton tested positive for heartworms!

    So now I have everyone on heartworm preventative. I tell clients that even indoor cats can get heartworms and if you don't want any risk at all, put them on preventative.

    I test every year and often find dead mosquitos in the house under the stove light...all it takes is one infected on to transmit the parasite.

    We will have to monitor his lungs with xrays every 3 months and watch for any coughing etc as there is no real treatment for cats like there is in dogs except to medicate with preventative and cortisones if there is inflammation etc.

  3. Heather....Mine kept scratching on the counter at the sink today like she was digging for something. I looked, but didn't see anything. LOL...I think cats are a bit nutty, you know?

  4. Teri...Oh no, I'm so sorry. What is he preventative? Does it really work? I guess I should get some, eh?

  5. Your cat is adorable!

    When we had cats they'd come back inside the house to use the litter tray. :D


I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
