Weekend reading

Another busy week here. It's probably been the same at your place too. I hope all is well in your home and that you'll have a chance this weekend to slow down and look after yourself.  Thanks for your visits this week and for your help with the shopping questions. XXX

  1. Your reading lists look really interesting. I hope there are some I like and can share on my Facebook page. Thank you!


  2. My WordPress app updated this morning with a brand new stats page, so I had a look. At first I thought they had changed how they record their stats! But no, I'd better buckle my seatbelt. :D

    Thanks for linking over to my blog, Rhonda! :)

    I'm going to take my rooster back today and swap for two hens, so I'm hoping to show some pictures this afternoon. It *has* been a busy week. :)


  3. Good Morning Rhonda...just popping in to say hello and that last weekend we were up at Nundle and called in to Odger & McLelland....what a delightful shop and wonderful service! The gentleman kindly allowed me to take photos and blog about it which I have. I read that you were driving down South so if you would like to stop for refreshments it would be lovely to meet you all! Have a great weekend and I would love to try to make the washing liquid this weekend!

    1. I'm looking forward to visiting there later in the year, Dzintra. Thank you for your kind invitation which I have to decline. If we were to stop and have tea with everyone who has asked, we'd be away for many weeks. Good luck with the laundry liquid. xx

    2. Thank you Rhonda! LOL to your many invites...I can imagine how it would Slow you down!

  4. Rhonda, that basket of beans looks amazing! Are they all beans of are there some large eggplants lurking underneath? ;-) Have a lovely weekend.

  7. Like simplecraftylife I thought something had gone wrong with my stats.

    Thank you so much for linking up to my blog :)

  8. Well, so much for an early night. I've spent the past hour reading these links: chook webcam, NASA study (shivers up and down the spine), farm to table living, sustainable food, Lost trades fair (Kyneton! If only I'd known, we would have loved that), Leftovers (on my PC Favorites list) and Urban Sketching.
    Now look what you've done, Rhonda! I spent another half hour on the last one, and have signed up with the Melbourne Urban sketchers group!

  9. Particular thanks for the Urban Sketchers Rhonda!

  10. Thanks for linking to my cams and website. I love when my ladies are called "chooks" - not a term we use much here in the States, but we should!
