Mr Owl says Shhh

We can be wise from goodness

And good from wisdom.

Marie Von Ebner-Eschenback, Aphorisms.
Today we are just sweltering in the 42 C. Clouds have started coming across the skies but we still are at 42 C. Just the beginning of summer, so just as well we are on holidays. I have gone down to the chook yard and hosed the water tubs down and they're all enjoying the cool water. We have an edition to the chook pen.
 We have a cute little yellow and black chick who hatched yesterday. Cory and I watched as the egg was being chipped away at from the inside. It was funny to hear all the cheeping going on from inside the egg. By the looks of things, we have another girl clucky sitting inside a nesting box. This girl is quite territorial and does not like you to come near her right now.

This is what happened when I hosed the water tubs down, the chooks plonk themselves in the wet ground straightaway.

Two cute little owls I have made. The owl on the left looked a bit plain and I asked Heather her advise on how to jazz him up a bit. Quick as a flash, Heather suggested 'Shhh' stitched on him. Great idea. They stand about 6 inches high and will be great to sit on library shelves.

A great new book to my collection. Kindly given to me by Heather as a Christmas gift. Great ideas for puppets, stuffed toys and things to make out of french knitting lengths. I am knitting the chook right now from this book and it's turning out real nice. There are some wonderful crochet patterns in there too. If you see this in the shops and you love stuffed toys, I would recommend you buy it.
As it is so hot, this afternoon I have decided to do some sewing. I have some free downloads for dolls. I might give them a go. I'm so happy Heather and I went out early on this morning to a cafe down town, we beat the heat, had pleasant conversation and teased everyone walking by!!! Have a terrific day.
Regards, Anita.

I always think of the animals when it is so hot. I agree, they loved being hosed down or having their surroundings damp.
Cute little chick, too.
Lovely owls. There won't be any room left in the library for the kids once the toys are all in!

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no
data backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
