Feather your Nest Friday, 21st October, 2022.
It has been a hectic week and today it ended with a downpour of an inch of rain. That is a lot for us and just fantastic. I am sorry for all the places in Australia that have been flooded as that is just terrible but for us this afternoons rain was a real blessing.
Because the week has gone by so quickly I am very glad to sit, stop and consider what I actually did. It is a bit of a blur to be honest. Last night I was talking with a friend and we both said our lists were so long they were overwhelming. So today I just worked to cross as many things off the list as I could. I have always loved Elizabeth Elliot's "do the next thing." When you don't know where to even start just do the next thing. It all adds up in the end. I would like to pay tribute to Mimi who taught me so much especially with recipes, cooking tips, management and more and she always shared that her Mother lived by "just do one more thing." Mimi tragically passed away this week and I am forever thankful to her for so many things but I will carry on her and her Mothers advice to just do one more thing.
Early in the week I added a lot of seedlings to my garden. I counted as I went...
18 Lettuces in my stack planters.
6 Yellow Zucchini.
7 Continental cucumbers.
I was watering daily up until this rain today.
I have been picking Snow Peas and Broad Beans every day.
The ducks have grown. After a couple of days two more Guinea Fowl hatched out. Before they hatched one lone Guinea was just a buddy amongst the ducks. No one seemed to realise but someone looked to be the odd one out.
