Weekly Wrap Up –

After just over 4 years of owning chickens, I managed to be at the coop at the right time to witness an actual egg being laid this week. It is not for lack of trying, believe me. When you go out there and open the flap and a chook is on the nest, 10 times out of 10, they will decide to put their egg laying off until a later moment.

I think I arrived at the exact moment it was too late to postpone that egg. The chook looked at me, I looked at her, and out popped that egg. It was quite a magical moment.

What the heck happened to the warmer weather? I’ve been feeling like an icicle for several days now. Not cool, weather deities! Brrr!

A couple of songs inspired me to sign up to Pandora Radio this week, which I will be writing a post about in the near future. One of them was Head Over Heels by Tears for Fears, and the other one is a Neil Diamond song which appeared in the pilot of Mr Robot. And here it is – as it appears in the show.

It might surprise people to find out I am a Neil Diamond fan. To be honest I like a lot of music which might seem unexpected.

Winner Winner


Chicken and Lamb Roast Dinner! We went to the meat raffle last night and won a couple of trays. I said to The Other Half, I have a mathematical for you – how can I make two of these roasting pans fit in the oven at the same time? He tested it with the cold oven and the answer is, I cannot. They just do not fit together. So I have to roast them separately.

I don’t eat lamb so that is currently cooking in the oven for The Other Half and once it is done we will slice it up awesomely and use it for his lunch sammiches next week. After that, I will roast the chicken with some potatoes and then steam up some carrot, cauliflower and broccoli to go with it. Happy moments!

How About You?

What is happening in your world?

    • Hey there Tracy – lovely to see you at my place. :) The chooks are a bit miffed about the weather, in fact one of them has had enough of this cold time and is spending afternoons sitting on her perch in the coop, even when I let everyone out to free range. I suspect she is saying chicken swear words at the weather. :)

  1. Love the colours, and sparkle to that light fitting.
    I suspect if I was a chook, I would prefer to lay my eggs in private too. Mind you, they just don’t get any fresher than that…
    We have had a return to cooler temps too. A few quite warm days, and followed by frost and chilly winds.

  2. LOVE your sparkly light fitting, very glad I’m not the one who has to keep it sparkly.
    Could you perhaps use one of the casserole dishes on the stovetop and cook the lamb pot roast style?

    • I did not even think of that, Mitchell – apparently I do cook when I don’t eat the dish.. ;) I have cooked lamb for The Other Half before, usually lamb chops while I have chicken.. the only lamb roast he usually sees is at my parents place. Lucky him!

  3. If the lights are in your house, the crystal would be of the class of your phone case. Pandora shows on the screen on our car, but I don’t know anything about it, so I await your post. Winning a meat tray is quite a saving to the housekeeping budget.

    • Pandora is deeply awesome, I am loving it! Sadly the light is not in my house, it was at a local furniture store. I have wanted to buy one for ages but the truth is if I had one, I would be a deer in the headlights staring at it, 24/7. :)
