Where Does the Time Go?...........

We had a really busy weekend moving my daughter into her new home......Sunday night locking up the chooks my man found one had died and its neck broken and the feathers picked off, no other damage.....the other girls were looking very subdued and morning silence from the henhouse and I thought the worst.....but they were ok just too scared to come out and kept looking skyward....I think that a large bird has attacked them and tried to carry one of them off and has only managed to kill it .....I hastily erected the bird netting over their enclosure and they came straight out and have been happy since.....I've had the chickens for over 2 years and this is the first one I've lost to a predator....have managed to keep them safe from Mr Fox, but didn't think of attacks from above.

Wedding anniversary and bouquet lovely....I feel very lucky to be sharing my life with
such a terrific man.....he really is a special person.
An anniversary bouquet.....lovely to celebrate every milestone.
Am racing to finish of a crochet project for my daughter's new house....haven't crocheted in a long time, but it's like riding a just get back on.....hopefully this cushion cover will be finished soon.....
Progress on the cushion cover is quick when I have time to get onto it....12 ply works up fast .
Another project is renovating the far all we have managed to do is start to pull our the shower......fingers crossed we can arrange reliable tradesmen and things will so along smoothly....does it ever???......renovating anything is problematic at times....see how we go !!
Yikes, I hate renovating but our ensuite needs fixing....including leaky broken shower.
I can't believe that we are heading into September next week....where does the year flies past and before you know it another year is gone.....I took the time today to sit in the sun with a cup off tea and just enjoyed doing nothing for 20 minutes...just being thankful for my life and all that it entails...the good and the not so really is what you make make the most of it.


  1. Looks like you have a lot happening at the moment Suzie with your daughter's move, bathroom renovations and losing your chook. Always sad that, I am sure the lovely bouquet helped lift your spirits.

  2. Great idea with the bird netting hopefully that solves the problem.
