The change of season weather is all over the place at the moment. For example, on Saturday it RAINED!
It RAINED out the back!
And it RAINED out the front!
In fact, according todays morning paper
we got a months worth of
Sparrows bathed in one of the drinking bowls.
My garden appreciated the HUGE drink.
I think these are called Chinese Anenomies
and they grow like a weed.
A last flurry of colour as most things are turning brown.
On Sunday TOF and I drove to Ngaruawahia to collect a couple of new Chickens to add to our flock. He jokes that we are getting like Brad and Ange but adopting chickens not kids!!
Meet Maybelle on the left and Florence on the right. Aren't they just so pretty? Nearly a year old and only $10 each. If I want any more I can just phone the lady and she will hook me up, she has always got plenty of chickens.
Today was a beautiful day, one to be enjoyed outside. With my line full of washing I got comfy on the deck with some magazines and a cup of tea. My morning drifted by and all good intentions of baking some Muffins fell by the way. Maybe tomorrow.
All but Tex joined me outside. He was snuggled in his bed dreaming of the gas heater being on and being delivered his meals to his bed.
This afternoon I went for a walk at Tatua Arboretum and took loads of photos that I will share tomorrow. When I got home I made the Chilli Sauce I had been intending on making for days.
I halved the recipe as I only had half the amount of Chillies. Note to self: Chillies are HOT!!! Do not rub your nose after handling them. Mine was on fire for what seemed like FOREVER!!
TOF and the Heir are stoked as the sauce is very HOT!!
