Just things.

These are the doves that live in our back yard most of the time and eat Pidge's food much to his dis approval, I like their marking on the neck mostly they are very shy and I don't get this close.
we're getting better at selfies.

Well sometimes.
 These two are waiting for my breakfast, they eaten but will hang around waiting for any bits that come their way.

 My laundry, I'm in the process of doing a good clean out and freshen up.
 It's also a tool shed and toilet, it's twice the size as the kitchen.
 The toilet was originally a outside one and they just built around it many years ago.
 Of course these two were very helpful at least they stayed out of the way and discussed the world problems.
 This a very nice little thing I picked up somewhere, I always wanted to do something with it but haven't quite worked out what yet, I always wanted to do a water feature with it in well one day.



 If only my kitchen was as big as my laundry

The saws are alway handy, you just never know when you will need one, well thats about it for his week maybe next week will be more exciting.
 I might win lotto.
The writing up the top is now orange.

    1. It's my laundry not my kitchen, I have a meat chopper in my kitchen.

  2. Love the selfies - and you are right, that would make a stunning feature in a water feature.
    Drummy and the beer fairy look engrossed in the conversation. Saving the world?

    1. They have little talks, drumstick makes lots of noise and responds when you talk to her, now comes when she is called, she runs it's funny to watch.

  3. Your kitchen might seem tiny to you, but you have ten times more bench space than I do! I love your blue cupboard doors, I want to paint my bench top that colour and paint my cupboard doors to match my tiles.
    I also like that "very nice little thing" you picked up somewhere. I'm sure you'll find the perfect spot for it eventually.
    Love the selfies.
    Do your cats watch every single mouthful of breakfast as you eat it? Angel does.

    1. I love the blue, it doesn't show all the dirt so much so that's good for me.
      My cats are very fussy what they eat they are either very friendly or if they don't like what you are eating they wander off in distain, but Drummy is a thief and tries to eat off your plate or pinch ham out of your sandwich.
      I no longer eat outside much.

  5. That panel is fabuloso. I hope you find a place for it outside. You pick up the best things; Green panels, cats, a chicken. Except, I think, drumstick picked you.

    Sorry you've been under the weather... love the selfies!!! That panel is delightful and.... hmmm could the saws be involved in a kitchen/laundry turnaround??? A project for the handy son when his current one is done? Just thinking aloud here... &*> YAM xx

      You not kidding he is full of ideas about the kitchen and bathroom, he keeps telling us we are not getting any younger and will soon need changes as the floor in the laundry is uneven and will need attention he is right.

      My cats don't like the flash so most of my selfies are taken on the computer.

    1. It's better today but Joe and May are down and he got flu too so I think we are cross infecting with different flues so i'm having them all this year.
      The hot water system warms a bit and cools a bit so nothing will stick but I will put the next one outside, the last one I had sprung a leak after about two years so I didn't think this one would last very long but it's proved pretty good so who knows.
      I do have butterflies in the toilet.
      see you Monday love Merle..............

  11. Hi Merle...Love that piece you picked up. Sooooo attractive. Yes, I think putting it near a fountain or something with water would be great. It's really a beautiful piece.

    LOVED the selfies. You look great and so do the kitties.

    Take care. Hope you are all better.

    Thank you so much for your visits. You are a dear. Susan

  15. Love the selfie, you look great! My laundry is a "catch all" for many things. I think it is my domain, but the guys in the house think otherwise.

    1. The laundries in new houses are tiny so where do they put all those things that we keep in our laundries.

  16. Nice picture of you Merle … and I like your toolshed/laundry room. What a great work place (of all kinds I guess). Those two saws make me think of my dad.

  17. We have power saws but I'm a bit wary of them, I don't mind a hand saw, good exercise if a bit slow.

  18. Merle,
    I love that "girl" plaque. It's so pretty and unique. She kind of looks Greek to me. Your selfies are cute, and the blue scarf brings a nice color to the picture. I see a lot of doves around here too. I heard that they are very precious birds.

    Have a nice Sunday, Merle.

    love,

  19. I like the retro look of your laundry and kitchen! And you have all your things out instead of in cupboards, makes for less searching. Sometimes the old ways are best. God bless! :)

  20. Very cute 'selfie's', Merle. (wow, that was a lot of punctuation!) Sorry you are not feeling well. Very cute kitchen you have and I love the saws hanging on the door, too - you are right, you never know when you need a good one! I usually have various tools hanging on my coat rack by the door and a hatchet in the corner for kindling. I like your big laundry room, too - mine is teensy and my washer and dryer are not beside each other because my Mr. and his helper thought it was better that way and I got tired of arguing. Isn't it funny how houses have their little quirks? - like people. The dove is pretty with her polka dot neckline and I think your little hen is conspiring something with the beer fairy. Rest and get well soon. xo Karen
