It's 2020.

Happy New Year!!!   haha  That's a bit sad isn't it, 2 months too late.  Or is it ever too late to wish everyone a great and happy year?  I don't think so.

We are now nearly 2 months in and again, I am growing nothing.  Well, a couple of capsicum plants but that's about it.  This morning though while watering Husbands stuff I picked a pile of tomatoes and a a couple of capsicum.  And 2 from my plants, better not forget that!

And while watering I was munching on figs.  And a few boysenberries.  And grapes.  Watered the coffee trees and collected a bakers dozen plus 3 eggs from a secret nest I found under it so I will check to make sure they are OK then add them to a zucchini...marrow and make a quiche for tea.

I am dogsitting again.  We had him for 10 days not long ago but this time he is only here for a couple of days.  But it's a bit concerning having him here now as we have seen 2 snakes over the last week.  One INSIDE the house.  We called a snake catcher to come get that one as it went into a cupboard but she missed it!!.  Says it went out through a hole in the wall so I hope so.  Except, outside that wall is the cattery.  Which, again, I have let the grass get too long in.  But I am not game to get out there this week and work on getting it cleared up because husband isn't home and if I disturbed the snake and it bit me I would cry.  And maybe die too if I don't get help quick enough.  So the grass cutting in the cattery will wait a couple of days until husband gets home.  Cat wont go out there while the dog is here so she's safe enough.  Unless the snake comes back inside...HoHum, I really do need a massive declutter and cleanout.  The snake we saw last week was a lot bigger that the inside one and I have no idea where that went to.  So that is 3 unaccounted for over the last 6 months, 2 over the last week.  I wonder if these are a grown up version of the babies that were around last year...I wonder how many are out there that we don't see...Though I do try not to think about that too much.

I have been busy with Vinnies, we are still short staffed so I am still going in extra days, I like it but thinking I need to start doing other things too.  I want some adventures this year, been saying that for years! but this year the urge is stronger.  Tears are still there when I think of going anywhere by myself but I'm old enough now to suck it up and just do it. 😃

I have a day off tomorrow and I should stay home and get some jobs done...but I may go for an adventure, just a small one...will decide tomorrow.

Have a great one people, have some fun.

    Reading your blog is like having a conversation with a good friend, it doesn't matter how long between catch ups.

  3. Deadly snakes maybe in the house would freak me out. I am glad you have SOME food growing. Have an adventure and tell us so we can live vicariously.

    1. Hi Linda, lovely to "see" you. Yeah, we'll never go hungry but it's not what it was.
