2019 – So Far, So Good

This is my year. I know this because my diary says so 😀

Diary

So what am I going to do with it? I have no idea, except whatever I do won’t be done in a hurry. I’ve spent the first few weeks just pottering – doing jobs that need doing without planning anything, just going with the flow. My only rule for this year is No Rushing. Take my time. Stop worrying, just get on with things as and when they need doing and everything will work out just fine.

Scampi has taken to sitting in the corner of the kitchen, trying not to do the splits, while hoping I’ll give him a bit of whatever food I’m cooking.

Mornings involve ambling around the local area with Scampi. There’s not many people about so walks are calm (unless he spies a cat!) and he’s very relaxed when we arrive home, which sets him up for a good day. Shorter days mean the chickens are in their shed for longer, so it needs cleaning out more often. Instead of just doing what needs doing then coming back into the house, I spend about 15 minutes pottering about in their run, tidying and raking. Chickens deserve a nice garden too 😀 They’ve started laying again so we have lovely fresh eggs.

Eggs

We’ve had a couple of snowy days, this is very exciting for me because it doesn’t happen often! There was around three inches of the stuff lying on the ground one morning – and it only lasted for a day – but I couldn’t wait to go out in it. Scampi loved it and was like a chld, he didn’t want to walk in other people’s footprints, he wanted to go into the fresh stuff where he stomped and kicked it up 😀

I am a houseplant killer, I just can’t keep them alive. But I was given a Christmas amaryllis bulb so I planted it, said a prayer and it now looks like this. I just hope I can keep it alive, at least until it flowers. It looks a bit pale to me.
