It might be a humble cheese sandwich for lunch but with a lovely china cup and saucer a pot of tea, a favourite magazine and a beautiful view I feel like a millionaire.
Shame about the bank account, hehe..............
Weeding, chasing chooks out of the vegie garden and pruning roses is the perfect way to spend a sunny Winter's day.
There was a doozy of a frost this morning, but you can guarantee a gorgeous, sunny day will follow.
Out in the sun, it was T shirt weather but the cool breeze reminded you that there's still a few more weeks of Winter to go.
Sitting out in the sunshine getting my daily dose of vitamin D the only sounds I could here were
Crows cawing in the distance
Magpies arguing over something
A Blue Wren unhappy to share his territory with me
Frogs croaking down at the dam
The creak of the clothesline turning slowly in the breeze
The wind sighing in the trees
Ibises 'honking' away, I thought some geese had decided to come and visit.
The hum of a distant car
It was pretty near perfect except you weren't there to share it with me.
I would've pulled up another chair, grabbed another china cup and saucer and if I knew you were coming I would've whipped up a batch of scones.............
Now I have to eat a HOOUGE slice of humble pie here and publicly apologise to my 'girls' who I have been complaining bitterly about. Saying that no one was laying any eggs and I have had to buy eggs from the supermarket for the first time in oh, nine years!!
On Monday, I decided to go out and pick some Jonquils and............
There behind the Jonquils was a lovely nest full of beautiful eggs.
Berthilda ( I know, how on earth did I come up with the name?!!) had been escaping from the chook run and making her way over to this secluded spot to lay.
Bertie hatched last December and I had been eagerly awaiting her first egg.
There are 9 in total all nice and fresh ( I checked). Now I have somewhat of an excess of eggs, so it's been egg sandwiches for the last day or two.........
So to Molly who commented a couple of posts ago about the girls obliging me with a freshly laid egg in the front garden...........I got more than I hoped for Molly.
Last but not least a rare picture of our Tigger and his 'friend' Mrs Kafups sitting and staring at their tucker bowl, because obviously the longer you stare at it the more chance there is of food suddenly appearing...........
I'm pretty sure there will be another million dollar day tomorrow, so I will once again don the gardening gear and get a bit more weeding, pruning and chook chasing done.
I hope whatever the day brings, it's a good one for you too.
Thanks for stopping by and if you have a moment I would love to hear from you.
Till next time, take care,
