"Makes Me Happy Monday" number 45.
Happy Monday to you. I can't believe how fast the last week has gone let alone the year. I am so happy today because yesterday Ian and I went for a drive yesterday to get some chickens. We had seen an advertisement in the paper that said they had every variety of poultry. Well they certainly weren't wrong. When we turned up to buy the chickens we discovered a whole yard full of geese ducks roosters and hens of every variety under the sun. There was even a dog that rounded them up. Mind you I was ready to put one of the geese in the Christmas pot. I walked past it and talked nicely to it and it quickly bit my leg. Luckily I had jeans on though I am sporting a lovely purple bruise. Thanks goosey. We asked the lady for chickens that would survive the heat. She suggested we go for one with white feathers. So we came home with three "White Leghorns"
They have survived there first night. We went up to the yard this morning and noticed that something had been scratching near the fence trying to get it. I don't know if it was a fox or dog. Lets hope they stay safe.
I was also very happy on Friday when I purchased the 10th Birthday Celebration Special Collector's Edition of Australian Homespun.
It was a real surprise to see a photo of the scented bags I made earlier on in the year. I can still remember buying the first edition of Australian Homespun.
Now this week I must get onto some sewing. I have spent a fair bit of time in the garden lately, which is always good fun.
