– – – OFFICAL PRESS RELEASE – – –
Project Wood Stacking successfully completed!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
At 12.19pm today this is what was left to do:
Scraps: that’s all that’s left of that HUGE pile of wood, just scraps! 🙂 🙂
And this is where it’s all gone to:
I know, I know, Zimbabwe Ruins it ain’t – and a decent enough little aftershock will probably knock it down some, but by golly I’m chuffed! 🙂 Bring on the winter weather, I say, I’m ready for it! Actually, no, cancel that last thought, I’m enjoying our continuing summer weather too much to wish it away …
The fantails were really going to town around the house today, chirping and flitting about like mad. Heard one or two grey warblers as well, and also had some very agitated magpies swooping in and out of the trees and doing lots of quardle oodle ardle wardle doodling, which is usually a sign that there’s a hawk somewhere around, although I couldn’t see one. For those who have no idea what I’m talking about with the quardle oodle ardle bit, it’s from this very famous poem by New Zealand poet, Denis Glover:
Do you get magpies where you are? And what does their song sound like? I notice a comment on the link which says that New Zealand magpies must sound very different to British ones, so I’m curious as to what they sound like in other countries.
Back to work tomorrow, after my lovely 5-day break, which I really enjoyed and am now feeling very relaxed and refreshed: it even did wonders for my bridge playing tonight! 🙂
Caught this little fellow feeding off the marigolds this morning – look at those two ragged left wings, he looks as though he’s been through a few fights, doesn’t it? I wonder how much effect it has on his flying, with a good part of the wings missing on one side – I would think it must make it a bit of a struggle to keep on an even keel.
Righto, bed calls, particularly with getting back to work tomorrow – I have this very bad habit, when I’m off work for a few days, of staying up very late and sleeping in, which is fine at the time, but not so good when it spills over into a working week! Hope your week is going well, and that you, too, feel relaxed after the Easter break 🙂
