Frozen Birdbath


It’s been really freezing here this past week! The bird bath froze almost every night and there was ice on the outside furniture!


Our beautiful chickens have started laying eggs, the young ones have full-grown wattles and combs now and the older ones who were moulting have their new feathers. I just love them!!


Jen sitting with Miss Piggy, she is a gigantic Buff Orpington and eats everything in sight, she almost as heavy as Charlie (our cat) when we hold her (and he’s heavy!) :)


Six eggs in one day! Love it, they are so much nicer than the free range shop bought eggs.

Stephanie Rabbit

My dear Stephanie, she’s snuck in to eat the chicken food while no one was watching.

Have a great Saturday and a lovely Solstice weekend!




Such a wonderful sunset, a lovely end to the weekend.


MTB Ride and ‘Me’ Time

Cosmos Path


Richard Cosmos




Rich and I went on a lovely MTB ride last weekend, we rode about 32km through the plots and farms around Benoni and stopped briefly for a short rest at a nearby coffee shop. I’m getting used to my cleats now and can unclip them when necessary, they still scare me a little but it gets better with each ride.

The Cosmos flowers are always in bloom around Easter time here and they give a gorgeous show of colour. We also came across this sweet horse grazing in a field and then spotted a windmill, I just had to stop and take  photos. I know I should be riding more and taking less pics but there are so many beautiful things to see and I have to stop and capture them.

Mountain biking is really a wonderful sport, I used to ride horses when I was younger and loved riding out in the open, this is very similar, except, of course, I’m on a bike but I’m out in the open again and it’s just lovely! It’s also ‘me’ time and I’m glad that I’m allowing myself a few moments to recharge.

Hope you’re having a great week and that you’ve managed to have some time to yourself.
