Time has escaped me yet again and we (I) have had so much going on and I have had trouble finding time to read all of my favourite blogs yet alone write a post. The little fella in the picture is a Echidna, also known as a Spiny Anteater it was crossing the road when I was driving home so I stopped and watched him for a few minutes. Echidnas use their spines as a method of defence against predators so I just sat in my car and watched him as he would take half a dozen steps and then he would freeze like a statue then he would move again hoping his watchful predator would move along . He did this, take a few steps then stop for a second or two then move again until he was close to the tree trunk or bushes where he would blend in with his surroundings. I left him in peace and went on my way.
We have another baby arriving and I think I will be called again for mother & grandmother duties which I just......LOVE. I will be up and down from Sydney again with appointments, scans and blood test etc so my busyness will not ease up till next year.
The Church is getting close to finishing and so is the budget, we just bought second hand cafe table and chairs for unbelievable price and all they really need is to be repainted, so I'm rounding up volunteers to make this as easy as possible.
On the home front everything is at a standstill due to extreme busyness and the rain, did I mention that we have had so much rain that my house yard is like a swamp, the chickens have grown web feet and I'm not far behind them. The heavy frost has also browned off the grass, so the yard is looking pretty bad at the moment. The veggie patch is waiting its fate, I'm hoping that it will be back in full production this year as last year was grim. I'm going to nag my poor hubby to make me some raised beds in his spare time (ha) or I will have to just set up night lights and get stuck into it when I get home from work and make it ready for spring. Once it gets warmer we will finish off our lounge room, laundry and kitchen and then start painting and decorating....yay
It won't be long now and our business will be picking up pace again as the orders have been coming in fast, we need to get more stock back in the shop and hubby wants to put our business name on our truck so make people more aware of us.
My life is very busy and I am doing at least 10 things at one time but I do get time to smell the roses and thank God for every blessing he gives me and I hope you do the same :)
