I had a sleep-over at the RUC on Friday night. It was my first sleep-over since the entire house was moved to the farm (on the back of a truck). What a brilliant and relaxing sleep I had! I normally wake up at 4:00 am, but I slept in and woke up at 5:00 wondering who was shining a light through my bedroom window. At first I thought it was aliens.
But then I realised it was just the moon and I’d moved the camera while I was taking the shot (hey – it’s was 5:00 am, remember).
I’ve always loved the moonset over the mountains.
I saw a stick insect on the avocado tree. I wouldn’t have noticed it if it didn’t have it’s wings spread.
I saw a gecko eating a moth (good little gecko!)
It’s the first time my dogs have seen the RUC and they weren’t so keen on the temporary stairs (they’ve lived a sheltered life and have never seen stairs before). It’s easier to get up than it is to come down.
They met the ‘farm dog’ and didn’t know what to make of her at first. My German shepherd tried to mount her (even though he’s neutered) and she snapped at him. Just because she’s a farm dog doesn’t mean the city ring-ins can have their way with her. After a few hours my two dogs followed her Indian-file everywhere.
Saturday my muse attacked me and I worked on my WIPs while hubby went to the creek and caught mud-crabs for dinner 😀
I hope you’re all having a great weekend!
