A new weather station and sun at last.



 Out shopping today before the rain comes back again tomorrow, paying bills at the post office they had these weather stations so I bought one, I thought they were pretty good and only $5 but their was only two left they were much more the other day so I guess they were trying to get rid of left over stock.


 Drummy painting is almost finished her drumsticks are not right she has filled out a lot in the last few weeks.

 I'm not much good at selfies, but I try.
 It was a lovely day yesterday  so I took some sunny shots as it's not going to last tomorrow afternoon more clouds and rain on Friday and Saturday.




 Two pumpkins are growing the others must have rotted or fallen off, as they are just gone.

 Blue sky and very little cloud.
 Dry areas, that's nice.




 and a clean floor.

  1. Your selfie is not bad. I am not even game to try my own. There will be a good reason why the weather station was only $5.

    As always, your painting and your garden delight.... the selfie is pretty good! And the weather station looks impressive - even if it only ever gives you five bucks worth of reporting! YAM xx

  6. I had the same weather station, I don't know what happened to it when I moved, it isn't here. I might buy another one.
    The Drummy painting is looking good.

  8. Merle, you have such a talent with painting. The painting of Drummy is very nice. Where are you going to put it? And I really like the black and white floor. Cute selfie pic, Merle.

    I hope you have a pleasant weekend.

    1. Maybe the kitchen that's as far as she is allowed in the house, not very good at going to the toilet in the right places.

  11. I always enjoy photos of your garden. I'm finally getting outside to work in my yard and gardens. I get way behind with the A-Z going on. You really captured the likeness of the chickens in the painting. I love to watch my chickens and study their personalities. I have 5 chickens and they all have a very different personality. You are so lucky that Drummie found you.

    1. I must say I've never had much to do with chickens until Drummy wondered into our driveway but I will never eat a cage egg ever again I find chickens have much more personality and are smarter than I ever imagined.

  12. Hi Merle
    The weather station is wonderful.
    I'm sure it was full of water recently - I saw on the news where Queensland has had torrential rain!
    Love the chooks!

  13. Your garden looks lovely, and the weather station is very nice. You have lovely areas to sit and enjoy the garden. Be sure to take time to relax out there. I know when I'm sitting in the garden, I always think of things I could be doing (like weeding, for instance!)

    1. We use the garden a lot for sitting and dreaming, also most of our visitors go straight up the side of the house into the garden not many sit in the house.

A first tooth for our little lady and eating out.

We are off and playing more and more on the floor. No teeth yet for Wilbur but Clemmy has one on the bottom. But impossible...
