I was so pleased when one of our turkeys decided to start laying. Finally at least one of them was earning their keep and not destined for the roasting pan. Now I've just got to work out which one it is that is laying.
Yesterday at the supermarket, I managed to get my hands on some whole squid for a really good price, as well as a whole baby salmon and fresh prawns. This called for seafood dinner.
Sometimes you're just in the mood for a great laugh. My sister showed me this website last month, and reminded me about it again tonight. I was feeling the need for a pick-me-up, so loaded it up and laughed away.
Ever since I was introduced to CSS to create my websites about 6 years ago, I have loved it. I love being able to make items on your website go wherever you want to put them, and the challenge of getting a page to look exactly like it did in your design. I would spend all day coding CSS if I could get away with it.
I've been making some big changes to my website to get ready for the start of my business blog, and to fit in all the other things that I need to put in it. It's proving to be a bit of a challenge, but it always is when you're working on your own stuff.
In amongst all the website updates I was working my way through today, I managed to take a break and get out in the garden for a short while to plant some more veges and check out what else was happening out there.
I've been so inspired with the 30 day challenge that I've been planning how to start blogging for the business - so inspired in fact that I've planned a blog post a week right through until October.
We inherited some very well established grape vines when we moved to the farm, they are growing well and we'll be eating them when they are ready, hopefully before the million birds around here get to them.
I had a friend ask me for some advice about setting their own blog up because I was suddenly "blogging my brains out". It made me smile and tell him about Cricket's 30 Day challenge where I have to blog every day for 30 days. Now he probably thinks I'm crazy (if he didn't already). But it also made me think about how I nearly threw it all in earlier this week.
Today was great - it rained. The ground was so dry that this downpour of rain was much needed to make the grass grow. Or at least start to recover from the big dry spell that we've been having.
