Meanwhile, Belle makes up the food for the goats and fills their overnight hayfeeders. We are both very popular with all our livestock at this time of day. Chooks, duck and geese run after us eager for something yummy. The kid goat maaa's away to tell us he's hungry too.

At this time of year, I need to attend to the garden next. It's a rare day that I don't need to water! Pots, a couple of the winter beds and my main summer bed, the round garden, all need to be watered. This is a time I use to inspect the garden as well. I've learnt a lot about gardening this year so we have some good results showing. It's nice to check for ripening tomatoes and to wonder how I will know when the eggplant is ready. I have one reasonably large one on the bush and I've been waiting for it to become an eggplant-y shape but wonder if it's just not going to be an elongated one. Do you know how to tell when they're ready?
Once the watering is complete it's back into the house and back to reality. The mundane tasks of dishes to be dealt with, picking up some of the days mess, tallying up all the jobs I didn't get done and wondering where the day went!
