I got the funniest txt from my Mum yesterday. For those of you who don't know, my parents, in their late 60's, have retired and are traveling around Australia in their car and tent. So far they have been having the time of their lives. At the moment they are staying at a camp site next to the Murray River. They have been there for a couple of months and have become quite friendly with the local wildlife. Bunnies, ducks, birds etc.. Well yesterday Mum stepped out of their tent and got mobbed by a group of little wood ducks. These ducks are small and brown and very cute. They were expecting some food, and got quite excited. One little female got so excited she flew up and landed on Mums shoulder! For real! My Mother had a DUCK sitting on her! She called out to my Dad to come look. I can just imagine the look on my Dads face, and he would have laughed so much. My Dad loves humorous animal situations. So the duck sat there on Mums shoulder for a couple of minutes. Unfortunatly they did not get a photo. Boy I would have loved to have seen it.
It's so hot today that we are running the airconditioner, not caring how much it will cost us. We had so much planned today but nothing is going to get done until later on in the evening. After the minor flooding we got under our house, we had to buy all new power cords and big plastic roller boxes to put things we have packed away into, to replace the cardboard boxes that got wet. So hubby decided he wanted to re-arrange the entire down stairs area. Which is hard work in this heat. One good thing to come out of it is that I've scored my husbands big L shaped desk. Which is going to be my computer desk and craft desk as well. So excited. I cant wait to set it up and get back to doing my crafty things. Maybe even set up my easel and do some painting.
One other random thing. My son has discovered MacGyver. He is hooked.*rolls eyes*
