Hands up if you know that tune.Yeah Yeah , i know its meant to be Monday Monday, but who wants to sing about Monday when its the start of a new working week and back to the grindstone. Saturday is full of chores not managed at night during the week, shopping, chicken coop clean out, lawns and on and on ..... Nothing better than a Sunday with only a few errands so the whole day just unfolds. I'm writing about Sunday before Saturday because I've left my phone containing the photos from the Royal Melbourne Show on my office desk and right now, it feels like I'm missing an appendage. So excuse me if I'm out of sync this week.
My Sunday starts with some very very loud clucking right on 6.00am For that matter, make that most days. I'm sure the neighbours wouldn't believe the size of the chooks making that much noise. Those bantams make the loudest noise ever and even i cant pretend i cant hear them and have to drag myself out from under a doona into the cold to feed them. Note to self, put the grain out the night before when they have gone to bed.
|My name is TROUBLE!|
|Take one massive beetroot found hiding in one of the raised bed. Its about the size of a softball. A little woody on the end but salvageable.|
|Waltz around the garden picking leaves from various green things including snow peas and baby beetroot leaves and give them a good wash.|
|All packaged ready for early morning prep of lunches this week, and it didn't cost me $5 a bag (which i can re-use next week)|
|This lettuce, which is one of the ones i pick my weekly bag from is months old and almost 2 ft high. You can see the lemon balm on the left doing very well now that it has been moved from under a pile of parsley.|
|I have several of these in my pot garden (all terracotta) and they are literally covered in bees.|
|I pot up smaller pots of lavender and move them around the garden beds wherever there are flowers to be pollinated.|
|Yep, that's me! Santa's Little Helper - i knew one day i would sneak in a photo of myself .|
I Wish (and so does my Hubbby)
OK, so now that you are all thoroughly jealous and ive allienating every female reader and perhaps gained a few male ones, i will take my weary feet (long day at Show) to bed with some Dencorub and a painkiller.
|Wouldnt you have sore feet and be uncomfortable walking for 12 hrs in those snazzy high boots and short dress on a very cool blustery spring day here in Melbourne. Give a girl a break. Next time ill wear opaques. LOL.|
