The weather has not been too amazing over the last couple of weeks. Jolan got two baby chicks for AgDay and a few days later got a little duckling dropped off too, a rescue from a cat. So now the 3 birds are sharing the warm box in the living room. Other than that, life goes on as per usual, the paddocks are wet so Tatjana set up a geofence around the house to keep to automowers out. Now the automowers are busy mowing the grass and the weeds around the house – so satisfying to watch.
We have been busy on various little projects to keep us busy. From cooking to exercising, watching some movies to projects outside.
I love details, hence macro photography is always a cool thing for me.
Here’s a picture of one of our common visitors, a praying mantis. While common, I still find them fascinating little critters.
Funny to see the cat getting quite intimidated by the arrival of the ducks behind her and starting to freak and run away when one of the ducks started picking the cat’s tail.
It’s been a long time we had some cute calfies arriving here. Yesterday was the day 3x cute new calfies arriving. They walked down the driveway into the shelter and are now happily mixing and mingling with the horses.
One afternoon, there was Wasabi waddling around the paddock and there was a bunch of fluffballs tumbling after her, 15 little duckling.
The last few months were pretty dry with no rainfall other than a few drops that pretty much instantly evaporated upon hitting the ground.
I think the last rain was some time before Christmas last year which would make it three months with no rain at all.
