Dan took this photo yesterday and I love it. It sums up perfectly how Lucinda and I spend so much of our time!
Some of the comments on yesterday's post re whipper snipping and mowing made me laugh. I absolutely understand the comparisons to the call of the wild. As soon as I see my neighbour heading out on her mower, I feel compelled to do the same. I don't find the noises of those devices too offensive, they just blend into the background or spur me into action. They're also a LOT quieter than dirt bikes.
We had six hours of the bikes yesterday. Because we live in a small valley, it echoes horribly around the area and throughout our house. I'm crossing my fingers for new neighbours sooner rather than later.
In other news, we had our first brown snake up near the house yesterday. It made a speedy get-away once it saw Dan and I'm hoping that it stays gotten-away. It looks like it was camping out in a pile of green waste we'd been meaning to move. Eek!
