The Egg

It's eggs for breakfast here this morning.  How cute is this?  I know by the colour and size of the egg that is was laid by Sophia.  She sometimes likes to sign her work by leaving the softest of feathers.

I love this quote, via Live Inspired this morning.

'we are made to persist... that's how we find out who we are'.  Tobias Wolff

Good luck to my young man Cooper as he competes in the regional champs in high jump today.  Love and pride aplenty.

Have a super duper day.

Happy Monday

Hello friends
I do hope you are well and happy.  Hopefully as happy as our pet rabbit Nibbles is, with all of the silverbeet, ornamental kale, lettuce and zuchinni surrounding him.

And currently, a blog update would not be complete without a photo of Dusty.  She is growing so fast, of course. 

Best wishes from me to you.  Have a happy Monday.

It's a girl!!!

I know. I've been missing again.  Sorry.  There's been a lot happening and I've been keeping a secret.  We have a new member in our family.  Take a look....

Introducing.....   Dusty
Isn't she precious?  She is eight weeks old, a purebred Australian Kelpie.  We've taught her to 'sit' already, and after a few sleep deprived nights when we first brought her home, she has settled happily and we don't hear a peep out of her all night.  We love love love her.  It's so nice to have a dog in my life again.  As any dog owners know, a lot of extra work, but worth every minute, especially when you arrive home to a wagging tail!

We are very slowly getting her used to the chooks.  They are still bigger than her, but not for long.  Dusty is growing like a weed.  The other day she got a little too close to Sophia (biggest chook) and Sophia had a defensive peck and flap of her wings at her.  Poor little pup got such a fright and backed off.  I'm sure they'll all be hanging out in the sunshine together before we know it.

The Ekka is on here currently, so am looking forward to the public holiday on Wednesday this week.  We have just acquired two fabulous old squatters chairs, via Gumtree, and Ebay.  So comfortable.  Can't you picture me in my squatters chair, glass of wine, a good book, and my kelpie by my side. 

Have a great week ahead.
