Well, yesterday, day 18. The day of the storm. The day it sounded like our house fell down! Lightning then the thunderclap within a nanosecond - youngest child breaking all land speed records to jump into mum's arms with fright. Mum screaming in fright just before he did so. Wow! Our neighbour phoned just after the lightning struck to make sure we were all ok - she said it sounded like the thunder hit our house. It didn't, but it sure made it's presence felt!
And today, day 19? Slightly better weather, though the ground is so sodden the chooks left camp and escaped their pen to find drier ground higher up the yard. Unfortunately, scratching right along the path where everyone walks their dogs, which meant we had to herd them back when their absence was noted. Poor old Roast was left in the pen as she is a bit old and too arthritic to fly. I thought she'd laid down and died from loneliness, but she was actually lying down with her wings spread out enjoying the only patch of sunlight to permeate the gloom.
As the wee man spent much of the day at his best mate's I took the opportunity to clear up the art supplies cupboard, and am secretly very proud of my decluttering. I threw out 3 bags of rubbish and it's looking much neater and stuff doesn't fall out any more when you open the door :) Next stop it's cleaning up my making space/studio that is in the rumpus room - I feel I'm clearing the way to start making art and craft for business purposes.
There you have it. My weekend in a nutshell. Quite productive really - what have you been up to?
