So first thing last Saturday morning.... I admit I let myself get into a bit of a funk..... The 'adorable' rabbit that I adopted a few years ago, out of the kindness of my heart.... decided to assualt me (again) complete with growling and flailing feet. I suppose i should have thanked her for not actually biting me this time... but I couldn't muster up the words.... She managed to knock the dish of vegetables i had so lovingly cut up completely out of my hand... carrots and grapes flying thru the air, and all over the ground. She's ill tempered on a good day... but I insist on try to feed her anyway... silly me. So I moved on to the ducks, who follow me around begging, instead of eating the food that I've already put on the ground (you have to picture me outside, glasses on, hair in a big ruffle... in my aging fleece robe and slippers....) by the time I went back inside i was grumbling as much as the rabbit..... I plunked down on the couch to sip my by then luke warm tea.... and flipped huffily thru a magazine sighing alot..... and then the husband said, "Would you like to go for a drive this morning? - We could be back by afternoon for lunch and gardening...." I thought that sounded like a really good idea..... So I traded my robe for some real outdoor clothes and off we went!!

It has come to my attention yet again, that I love "home".... and all that it represents. The place where our furry, feathery family and my books and slippers.... and my crafty stuff are. *sigh.
Weekends just aren't long enough.
I noticed today that i can see my favorite corner of the kitchen, reflected in the bathroom mirror.....
Even my wet hat drying on the tub faucets seemed pretty today.... despite the gray skies and rain.
I spent some time redecorating my mouse hole today; you cant' do that from work.
and later.... when I'm the going up the stairs to bed, and the house is quiet and everyone is nestling in to sleep; I will, as always, gaze up and smile at the warm glow of my "antique" lamp that lights my way.

Lately, in addition to being the lucky recipient of letters from my great Pen Friends around the globe, I have also had the opportunity to correspond with one of the orginal residents of Onion Patch Farm. Learning from her about the "farm" and it's past just delights me beyond words!
Moral of my long winded story you ask?
I shall endeavour to keep the wonderful postal workers the world over busy for many more years to come; as well as my favorite ( if imaginary,) pigeon friend "J.D." the #1 Air Mail carrier for Pigeon Post!
