things i'm loving . . . 'home life'
So many totally-into-&-loving-things this week with PaisleyJade, starting off a fabulous Beef Ragu recipe from my children's cookbook My Grandma's Kitchen by Louise Fulton Keats (yes, as in the offspring of Margaret Fulton, cooking master) & yes, i cook from children's cookbooks as they are my level of culinary adventure & children LOVE every meal, win win.
My new Mac desk top arrived, after i killed my 5th laptop computer - my husband suggested i might be more reliable with a desk top & swears by Mac, so yes folks, i'm never going back!! I love the multi view - i reckon i could launch a space ship from here!!
I picked up a copy of the May Home Beautiful with Simone from Beach Vintage blog & Just Plain Gorgeous shop & Fabric Traders on line . . . to read about her fresh & fabulous beachside home. I studied every image, if i was ever a guest, i'd know where the bathroom was (it was a huge feature) congratulations Simone & family!!
The children are being thoroughly entertained by the chickens, i love finding shots like this when i download the camera. This is apparently what alien chickens look like!!
The chicken coop arrived. Seeing they are only 10 days old & it's getting to 0C at night here, they are very much indoor-baby-chicks, so i constructed the coop in the lounge room (nothing a vacuum can't fix) & it's basically like having the world's most bizarre lamp!!
Our German Shepherd is containing himself, he chases birds all day in the garden, so to have chickens is a challenge for him. He's really being VERY good. Can you feel the energy in this picture - like he is absolutely ready to pounce at any second.
It was going to happen sooner than later, the chickens now have a coop & disco!!
Is it just me or are they lying in the shape of a love heart?? Please be hens!! Looks like we'll be getting new baby chicks from the next batch of incubated magic in a few weeks, so excited!!
Sorry i'm still a little over the top with chicken fever but they really are just so much fun. School resumes on Monday so it will be me & the chickens. My sister recommended ducks, similar to raise but more friendly as they follow you around, like pets. I agree, they're on the list!! Love Posie
