a whole bunch of randomness.

Howzat for a self portrait!
Here I am in the "hoodlum's" humble abode keeping them away from sparks.

Yes, Husband needed to make a little hatch door on the other side of the Aframe so that the youngest of hoodlums would be able to exit safely without being bullied at the doorway from the older more "pubescent" hoodlums.  It was terribly loud to cut the metal - as Baxter will let you know...
anyway - the door was made...

there was a lot of help to be had...

...and a lot of curious on lookers...




You would think I would learn not to wear my birks in the paddock..
but I never doo... and I always step in poo...


a couple of days later we went blueberry picking at a local spot.
17+ kilos of fat, plump, sprayfree blueberries to store away for the year.  


I think we all ate at least a kilo along the way while we picked!
Yummo.
We started our Australia Day 2011 out with blueberry pancakes this morning.  

The kids are having a play-date with a friend and Monty is helping dad in A frame #4 retrofitting the nesting box.
Triple J's Hottest 100 is about to start... Must be about time to end my auction! I think my momma is winning at the moment - get in while you can and save me postage to the states! Ha!

Happy Oz day. Hope you are able to celebrate all that is good and Australian.  I am - we're being pretty relaxed and cruizy today.

Blueberries are awesome. Just ask Monty! They are great in pie mixed with raspberries and blackberries. Or make up some coulis. Yummy!

Love this post Amy! Love the gorgeous pics of you and your chookens (are you only going to do brown ones?) and love how normal it makes me feel that today was just another working day here on the farm. Chooks and other farm duties obviously didn't get the memo that today was a public holiday.
