It's all about the eggs.......

The Guinea fowl lay eggs in odd spots but this one I found in the dirt in the back yard...... Tucked under a grass butt.....lol
By accident I mean by scaring the guninea fowl out of the garden and the Guinea fowl in turn scaring the life of of me I found a new nest........tucked in the centre of some agapanthus......they love the Aggie's......makes great nest spots.......
Let's see if they nest there......
Finally the new arucana started laying her blue eggs except she missed the memo about finding a nest to lay in and started laying them on the ground.........clearly I go in there with my eyes closed as she had laid 12 eggs already and I had not noticed then scattered in the corner of the chook house on the ground......... So I had gone in there already 10 days (I miss an odd day) and not seen them on the ground........
 
Life is out off control.......
Oh I took some eggs to give a friend when I visited and scrabbled a few in the car.... Omg lucky it was not to bad a mess to clean up......But I will be packing then heaps better next time....... 
Catch later......

A matter of minutes.....

The other morning I was up at "sparrows fart" and on the road...........
my reward was the sunrise.........
there was a hint it was going to be lovely...........
5 mins later...............it was trying to burst thru......
another 5 minutes later...........
this was to the right.........the colours are not truly captured but it is a stunning light that only last for a short  time..........
5 mins later again.........up behind the clouds.........the rays all shining out........
random rose flowering in my garden............
I love nature..........except for the dust storm on Thursday night..........I went away Friday morning so still to clean up.........it was so thick the dust is deep my friends...........bring on some more rain......

Lucy update.......

Friday night stitching...........OMG it was so good...........my buddy Kylie, champagne, stitching, slipping and sliding thru the paddocks to get home (early mark from work) because we got another 26mms of rain............I can see the green tinge growing today as the day has gone on.......perfect grass growing day........OMG exciting........still got a way to go but its the best rain for 12 months what we have had this month.........can't stop feeding yet but hopefully we can soon........
Champagne............English paper piecing........Kylie started cutting a new special project.............
I glued a few for her...........and glued a few Lucy's.........Even pieced one of her blocks...........and she nearly had one done before she had to go home..............
The sunset light was amazing..........so not captured in this photo but you can see the light glistening on some PUDDLES................OMG PUDDLES................
Today inbetween many other things I spent some time working out the nitty gritty for Lucy..................
laid her all out on the floor and worked out what needs what to finish blocks, fillers, make edge fillers, corners etc...........
Once this pile is glued and packed like the top right bag I will be done with Lucy gluing...........woohoo......the end is in sight.......esp if I have no more cutting.........unless she grows another row - still to be determined once the whole top is together........
ok must go........
dinners cooking.......chicken rolled roast and baked vegies........
Have a fabulous weekend..........
Catch you later......

Lamby......

OMG it's so exciting............At the Chookshed party back in 2016 my "lovely neighbours" delivered a new born lamb who had lost it's mother..........
They didn't want to bother with the whole feeding thing..............
Lamby has grown into a young ewe and features in my blog here and there............anyway she is now a Mumma herself.........
So that must make me a granny hey...........
We have raised heaps on bottles but they usually grow and and go and be big  sheep in the rest of the mob (and ignore you).............
But Lamby and Goatie live around the house.........
So I took her a treat this evening when I found she had lambed..........
A little boy.........well actually not little.......I think he is pretty big with LONG legs............Listen to him on on the video.....so cute.........
Catch you later.......
