The animals, the rain and the fire

Who likes the when it's raining and storming outside? No one – well, maybe the odd that are happy that their grass is growing, like us humans inside. Oh, and the ducks! The ducks love it. They can almost swim on the front lawn.

The look a bit wet and depressed and so do the alpacas and cows. The chickens having a rest inside the chook house and the cats… well, the cats come inside for a snooze.

Unless you name is and you love fires. He site next to me every time I light the fireplace, would crawl into it if you did not pay attention. And it's not even the warmth – it seems to be the smell and the moving lights.

I did stack up some in front of the door, just for the wind to turn and make everything wet.

So there we are predominantly inside with the cats that brave the from time to time just like us who have to go outside at times.

Other than that, stay at home and stay save under Covid-19 level 3 in Auckland.
