Glorious Failures

My boot on the ramp of the tractor, yarning about cows and pigs and hay. This is what I was missing. Yarning.  The hay man was here, with his dad and his sons. All with an opinion about the state of the hay  – each opinion was considered – chewed  and nodded over.  There was time. …

A D-cision

Last night, as I took a quick shot of the sunset then raced back to the house to finish all the work in there that was piling up- I made a Decision. It is always important to look at your objectives and then re-evaluate and make a decision. So let’s do that. a) Have I achieved …

Bites

Dentally Challenged. That’s me – after spending way too long in a dentist’s chair yesterday getting three permanent crowns in.  Which did not stop me selling books though. Even the dentist is buying a copy of ‘Letters’ for his reception room now and his assistants are ordering them too. Luckily our Jess, the last of the Woofettes, completed her gardening …

Shy kitten blowing kisses. Don’t be fooled though. Manouchki has been observed sleeping with dogs and also with pigs. She and Tima appear to have an arrangement whereby Tima lies really still and Manouchki lies on her back kneading all the knots out of those little pig shoulders.  True. I am stalking them today to …

Come with me

To the West Barn across the way and back again. Just pictures. You know all the names. I hope you all have a lovely day. Your friend on the farmy, miss c  

Quarters

Yesterday Camera House sat on his Camera Table and sulked. He was not brought out to play at all. At 6am yesterday morning I was over at the big barn to the West and Marcel was on the wrong side of the fence.  It was pouring with rain. So I brought them all back in to …

CAT – Ching the sun

Yesterday was fine and still and stunning. Cooler but just beautiful. Cats love that kind of weather. Manouchki follows me everywhere, into the pig’s pen, the chook house, out into the field. He is a fearless wee cat. And Boo’s wish has come true because lately Manouchki  has been seen climbing into Boo’s outside bed (an …

Mum said …

When I was a very young mother (and I was very young indeed.. I married ridiculously young to a perfectly nice boy ) My  mother  said to me.. OK, you have proved you are a really good housekeeper, now you have a baby – so  just be a Mum. She was not a Saint, she was just …

Shifting Pigs

The girls and I finished cleaning out the barn yesterday. I have to admit it was a couple of  days of heavy work.  But in the end all the dirty straw was piled down the back in a new compost heap. It was steaming! And Sheila and Poppy have been moved back into their winter quarters …

Books and Chicks

The Books are Here! (Well, Half the books are here due to a wee mix up at the printers but I  am sure they will do their best to fix up this error today and hopefully send them asap.  Melissa my copilot is onto it and will let us know how that is going.) However …
