The Week That Was

The months are passing so quickly. We’ll be off on holiday again very soon. This time we’re going on a cruise of another part of the Pacific. We’re visiting Norfolk Island, Vanuatu and Noumea. I’m looking forward to the short ten-day break.

Mr. Munro visited a school or play center recently for his work. They had a worm farm and Mr. Munro arrived home with everything he needed to create his own worm farm. We already recycled all our kitchen waste into the compost bin, but these days I have to separate out the onion and garlic skins and any citrus scraps. I keep forgetting and that means a telling off. I think I’ve got it straight now, although I haven’t worked up the courage to peer inside the farm to see if I can spot the worms.

The garden has also received a bit of a makeover with some lime chips and some solar lights. It’s made a big difference and the garden is looking very pretty. The lime chips should also stop the weeds coming through. Yesterday, Mr. Munro planted some spring bulbs (rununculars and freesias) because he knows how much I like them along with some garden greens and coriander. I get the job of watering.

Bella has been a little horror since I last posted about her training. I’ve been calling her a devil dog and she’s lived up to the name. She will insist on biting when she gets over excited. I know it’s a puppy thing but I wish she’d get over it. At other times she’s so cute I just want to squeeze her. Ah, the trials of owning a puppy!

Cute Bella

In writing, I’m currently working on a short hot historical and I’m also adding a few words to the follow up story to The Bottom Line. The follow up story belongs to Julia. It’s given me real fits. I don’t think I’ve ever started a story so many times before. The current version has me excited and I’m cautiously optimistic that Julia’s story is on its way.

How was your week?

    Oh wow it is busy there. Omg that pic is so adorable. I can’t wait to read this new story you are working on. Wow already gardening. We still have some snow on the ground.

  2. Mary Kirkland

    You are busy, busy! Omg, that picture is so adorable!

    Savannah – LOL – puppy is currently outside barking at the man on the nighbor’s roof. He’s fixing the aerial. She’s a good little guard dog.

    It’s still hot and humid here although sometimes there’s a bit of a nip in the air. The leaves are starting to fall. Bella loves collecting and playing with them.

    Mary – hubby is always busy in the garden and experimenting with different things. That is a cute picture, isn’t it? Bella’s getting used to a camera pointed at her all the time.

    The days keep passing and I don’t know where they go – I feel like I have nothing to show for them at all!! I am really hoping that things will settle down shortly so I can get back to writing again – it’s been way too long.

    Catching up…

    I love pic of Bella. I’m glad she’s your brat dog and not mine, lol.

    A hot historical? Me too. Back to the medieval period.
