What I do all day...

Feed the wild birds

The trees in our street are losing their leaves... the leaves blow down our driveway...



I swept them up and put them on the veggie garden...


I cleaned the windows... if you look carefully you can see the birds eating their seed....


I watched the birdies while I made fish pie...

Oh, yeah, I also did two loads of laundry, made a big pot of chicken stock, did the supermarket shopping, dead-headed the hydrangeas, checked up on an elderly neighbour, did 2 hours of typing for Rick and listened politely as an Insurance Broker told me - if anything happened to Rick, I  might have to get a job.
She put me down on a form as "A Professional Executive"... even though...of course... titter... you are not." I asked did they not have a title 'housewife' - her reply? "Well, yes they do, but it doesn't sound as good, does it?"

Sounds just fine to me....

I made her change the form.

Oh my gosh, how funny. I wonder if she was secretly jealous of you being a "housewife". I know I am very jealous!

I've seen the view from your kitchen window (on Carol's blog) - I would never want to leave! :-)
I have a good life, I know.
