Day 4, Daph’s Caf (the new moon in Virgo wanes)
I hear clicking on floor boards, some thumping and then some breathing, and it’s close by, do I dare open my eyes, I’m going to have to see what type of creature from beyond is about to attack me. I look down and two pools of liquid amber are staring at me. Ahhh morning Doggie.
We amble off to forage for food, prod Lurch to see if he’s still alive under the doona, and settle down to some work and coffee. Doggie’s job is to watch me work and to get underfoot every time I walk around the kitchen. He’s good at his job I must say.
It’s time to let the evil cluckers out of the coop, when I open their door, I use my most strident tone and tell them to “get a move on girls, no lollygagging, move it move it move it!”.. Heh Heh, and they all march out in a line. If anyone saw me curled up in laughter by the coop they would have thought I had lost my marbles completely.
I duck under the lemon trees, which have manged to scratch up my arms when I divested them of their heavy yellow crop, and look at the roosting area for eggs. EUREKA! Not one but two eggs! I do a little jig, look carefully left and right so as not to create any suspicion with the “hen brigade” and leg it back to the kitchen.
I show Lurch my treasure, he just shakes his head, “ma, whatever floats your boat” he says.

We decide it’s time to explore our surroundings. I believe there is a rather large dwelling type space, but it doesn’t house people, instead it has row upon row of provisions, like dead animal flesh , there is even an entire area dedicated to crops that have no roots or soil! “ MUM you twit, it’s the supermarket, lets go !” says Lurch. Humph teens, such killjoys.
The next day I'm joined by the heavenly child and her boyfriend , we're celebrating Lurch's birthday. It's been ages since I've driven so I'm whizzing around in the little VW, forgot what freedom having a set of wheels can give you.!
|Just raining, and raining..... and raining|
The weekend is full of rain, and hail and we 're batting down the doors and windows. Such excitement, well at least it keeps me occupied and I don't have to think about Monday which is the dreaded "M" day. ( that's M for Medical.. yuck) now that's going to be another adventure.
Stay tuned as the next adventure turns dark.
