Finished painting and decorating the guest room and bathroom for our Christmas break visitors...the only thing still missing is something for the walls...all in good time!

47/52 - Tshirts

Finding decent clothing for my children is proving a challenge, so I settled for some plain tops and with the magic of fabric paint made them more interesting.  These are going under the Christmas tree

46/52 - Pickled Red Onions

A long awaited copy of Mollie Katzen's Moosewood Cookbook arrived earlier this week and I was more than happy to try out a recipe immediately, and so we ended up with a jar of the prettiest (and tastiest) coloured pickles!

So...Chickens

We got ourselves some chickens a week or two back and they have settled in so nicely.
They are about 2 months old so not laying as yet, but they have already grown enormously just in the short time we've had them!
So far they have provided endless entertainment, from catching worms, crickets & grasshoppers to feed them, to teaching them to go "home" to their coop at night, so learning how to catch them, and watching how they run when you call them...and just generally watching them busy themselves around the garden.
The children have really taken to them and the other day I caught sight of them, chicken under arm, walking about and just had to take some snaps.  Apparently they were taking Princess on a walk around the property :)
