Here are the geese stopping by, yabbering away at us through the window,
telling us to "Hurry up,...it's time for supper"
And oh what a mess they make of the window
because they sort of dribble as they peck at the glass,
leaving spitty streaks all over the it.
And the rottweiller girls, having a late afternoon romp,
They have turned out to be the best natured dogs I have ever owned,
with a tendency to bark at anything which is benign and irrelevant,
and stay silent when they should be barking.
Anyone arriving at the gates are viewed as possible playmates,
and are greeted with much love and affection.
Guard dogs they are not.
And our floor tiles, which are not quite the colour they look in the photo.
And today I walked over them for the first time.
I cannot tell you what a treat it was to walk across the kitchen floor,
without having to watch where I put my feet,
in case I tripped on the tarpaulins underfoot.
Did you know that pigs can romp?
And throw their hind legs up in the air like a frolicking cow?
And be so joyful that they bounce?
And then be so thankful that they come across and say 'thankyou'?
Well they do,
because this is what mum pig did today when we let her out of her pen,
and into the veg plot / pig paddock.
The electrics are still not working,
but we needed to give her and her piglets some room to move,
so out they went.
It was an all round joyful occasion.
And tonight's moon,
on the rise.
It is a clear night, so it will be cold.
Not to worry, the duvet is still working,
and tonight, should I feel the urge to go to the loo
I can walk through the house to the bathroom,
instead of having to go outside because the kitchen is blocked off,
the only way into the house being through the front door.
Bye for now,
