It feels like ages since I been here ...
It really does, but Rina's be busy with work, then cleaning the house, tending animals you know the normal old things we women folk need to do. I try to do dishes once a day, to save wasting water cause we on tank water here. But somehow I can't face that sink with it just piling up when I am home. Just not right is it? It was 2 degree this morning old man winter is showing his face around here.A layer of snow fell on the Snowy mountains and blew that cold wind right at us.
Many years ago, we still lived in Namibia my babies were still little then, we had a neighbour across the street from us, a nice little blond thingy. Boy she was the best little housewife I had ever seen, washing on the line everyday, soft toys washed and hung up by their ears and tails pegged. I used to wonder if those little kiddies ever got dirty, they were bathed and in their pj's by 4.30 pm and fed before hubby got home from work. She had her little face all pretty and hair taken from curlers, bushed and shiny too.(I am for real)
My biggest dread was she'd pop in before 9am and find me not finished or as that particular morning she knocked and found my sink full of breakfast dishes, soaking while I lay reading over a half made up bed. Needless to say I could not find a hole big enough to crawl into. Don't let me get started on a book that's the end off me for the day.
Now our home was full of fun, lots of water fights, sometimes it even came in the house when least expected, Michael my eldest throw a bucket of cold water at me were he cornered me in the kitchen, while I just stood there helpless from laughter, no threat was going to stop him. I did instigate that fight by hosing him first. Lots of fun and laughter. Now it's the grandsons carring on the tradition ...
Gosh Sorry I strayed off from the topic of the day, I was going to tell ya all about the baby chookies, they growing so fast see their little white wing feathers are starting to come out they so cute now. Already they are grow so much taking up double the space where they sitting under the heat lamp. Sure need it to keep them warm.
