Our chicks are about 2 months old now. They are so tame and sweet the Black Australorp Angel looks like a hen and Lucky looks like it may become a rooster. Does anyone know a bit about chickens and chicks who can confirm this? We’re pretty much just going by the size of the comb. Actually we were told that Lucky is a koekoek but looking at pics of them I don’t think so, it would also be nice to know his/her breed.
There was no water at the children’s school last week and I had to skip pottery class. I brought mugs home to add handles and there was some left over clay. Mary, my pottery teacher kindly allowed the children to use the clay. I showed them how to do pinch pots and Fjord made a chameleon, copied from one of his books.
My ultimate indulgence is reading in bed, enjoyed far too seldom. The only thing better is adding chocolate to the picture. I hate any spoilers and take it as far as not even reading the back cover of a book. The Lace Reader picked up at the library turned out to be a really good read. Part mystery, part psychological drama, part romance, it kept me turning the pages and finished on Saturday morning with coffee. I will be looking for more books by Brunonia Barry.
Cliff took us for milkshakes at Hecker Nursery in Boksburg, we had been house bound most of the weekend. The chocolate fig tart was really yummy. Cliff pointed out the night sky petunias, at first I wasn’t sure if I liked them but have decided that I do. We came home with a tray of marigolds which Acacia fell in love with, at least with good recent rainfall it was probably safe to plant them despite current water restrictions.
Gr R class reps were spoiled by the teachers who gave us a sachet of Original Cocktails Strawberry Daiquiri. Delicious! What a heavenly summer drink
