If I had a flower for
every time I thought
of you, I could walk
in my garden forever.
Greetings to you all, my friendly blogger mates. I am so happy to have made it to get in on time to do 1 Xmas Item a month! Very happy indeed. I was lagging a bit last year, so I plan to get cracking with my Christmas projects this year. For my first Christmas item I made a cheeky little elf tree decoration. I stitched on his cute little mischief face (reminds me so much of Heather...oops!). Found some leftover material, Christmas string and a lovely bell. Check out blog for the gals who have also joined in on the fun.
On to a bit of creepy stuff......last Sunday it was terribly hot in my part of the world so my plan was to hose down the chooks and dog every hour. Later in the day I thought though it was very hot I wondered if the chooks had laid any eggs. I went down to the chook pen, and bless their hearts they had laid three eggs. While I was there I wondered if the chooks had gone to a new section of chook pen I had made for them. Got the fright of my life!! This is what I saw......
Both tangled up with each other, the bigger one strangling the smaller one.
They were found just behind the bushes to the left of the screen. Now, what do you think? Did they both have a big snake fight outside our yard and the bigger one dragged the smaller one in to start eating him under the nice cool bushes....or had one slithered in already and was having a happy time under the bushes and the other one also slithered in to our yard????Hmmmm.
I know very creepy, but you will probably think I’m mad when I share this with you. My first reaction was ‘I better get the camera and take a photo of the snakes in case they bite one of the kids (who were inside and unaware) and I will be able to show the hospital what type of snakes they were?????What!!!! I ran down to the house with the dog under my arms and grabbed the camera, told hubby we had snakes, and ran off to the chook pen. Why would I do that? We do some strange things when we get a fright.
Here are some creepy pictures.
Here is my big brave tiger laying out the snakes (who are now in snake heaven).
The big one is a tiger snake, not nice to get bitten by one of these and this one was 5 foot long and icky!! The smaller snake is a dugite and though it is small it packs a nasty punch and is lethal. I had been bitten by a snake myself many years ago and though that snake was only about 12 inches long I was very sick. So you can imagine my love of snakes....not.
I hope I haven’t made you all sick now!!! We walked around inside the house for the rest of the day being very suspicious of everything on the floor, in baskets, behind furniture...of everything really!! Lol You Aussie bloggers do be a little careful when you’re outside especially in this heat we’re having. If you’re out in the garden and you hear some rustling in the bushes, just drop what you’re doing and run like a mad man....who cares what anyone thinks!! Lol
I’m sssslithering off to visit the other gals who are doing 1 Xmas Item a Month now, can't wait to see their creations!!!
Have the best day ever!!!!
