Hi everyone,sorry for the absence..i had planned to get a lot done and the recent snake versus Forrest issue kind of put paid to any of it. So I have been grounding myself in the kitchen…baking..and playing with the pups and kitties and just thanking my lucky stars that we still have our boy. I plan on doing a post with some info later as I have read some very disturbing things on blogs and forums and feel I need to get some clear information out there..as having first hand experience with not one but two bites in the same poochie..but for now as i ease my way back into some sort of routine I thought I would share part of that routine..the nightly struggle between canine and feline that exists in our multi-species abode..no animals are harmed in this..except maybe some canine dignity..you decide..who wins? Notice Forrest is happily sleeping through the whole thing..as always..he is Switzerland. Thanks folks and good to be back!
Ok my head has been sore since last Saturday..i had a mini meltdown…Pickles had an operation and there is work to be done outside..i have caught up on some blogs but not all and I do apologise..you know the best cure has been getting out in nature..headache or not I feel better..today was no exception..
As I lay on the ground in the back paddock..camera in hand sun in my dried out eyeballs I looked to the heavens…..
You know that saying that you feel you have been ‘sh*t on from a great height’
Well when it’s an eagle it looks like a litre of white paint headin your way..
Summed up my week perfectly..and made me laugh my head off…
Excuse the quality of the picture..even Brutus cannot outsmart the blue sky great heights and sun glare..
Thankyou everyone for your well wishes and prayer and POTP for Forrest he is doing just fine as if nothing has happened at all…my friend Sharon from gentlestitches posted this clip awhile ago when we were talking about snakes..being a fellow Aussie she knows only too well the perils of life Down Under…enjoy this music clip it really is a classic 🙂
