A chance comment recently had us pondering how we present ourselves to the world; we were accused of bragging. Oh, what a collective tailspin that sent us into! “Do we boast, brag, swagger, or skite,” we asked each other. Then we harked back to The Renovator’s recent words of wisdom and decided that if, in celebrating our successes and poking fun at our mistakes, we appeared to be crowing – so be it! We love what we’re doing with our days.
The two Sunday Morning Teas following this thunderbolt served as a balm to our troubled psyches (as we’re just such delicate beings).
The Farmer reckons the fast-track to a happy home is something decadently chocolate
while The Goat Herd tried out good old Cornish Pasties (with Easter Egg garnish), the recipe gleaned from one of Nana’s cookbooks.
Then we took our brand new, fancy schmancy , “for The Trip” camera for a walk around the Homestead…just to prove our point.
Sunshine; fresh air; a happy home…
while it’s not for everyone, it’s a life we’re quackers about.

You seem to be a family worth bragging about, I would be very pleased to be a member of it if only to eat those delicious goodies that feature so often.
You are always very kind and would be welcome anytime 😊
Hi, Give me joyous celebration of the sweet things in life any time. And ‘Amen’ to the farmer’s latest wise saying.
pah! not bragging, just describing your life… ignore such comments and carry on regardless
That’s what we decided…after licking our wounds for a while. Isn’t it crazy how things find that chink in your armour?!
Not bragging when you have something to celebrate is worse than bragging as it makes us standard braggers look bad. Keep bragging. The fancy camera seems like a good buy.
We tried to channel you as we were being talked at by the enthusiastic salesman. We think we got something that will grow a bit with us as we get cleverer without making us look like low budget paparazzi
I keep thinking that if only I had a sparkly new camera, my pictures would miraculously improve.
Bragging? You? No! Never! The camera is certainly producing some very fine photos and your recent Sunday Morning Teas look yummy as ever xx
We’re slowly learning how to get the best out of the new camera…it takes some of us longer than others. 🙂
It takes me a very long time to master gadgets mainly because as soon as I start to read instruction manuals my brain switches to ‘la-la-la-la-la’ mode.
Oh yes. Luckily I have The Goat Herd and her Mechanical Engineer brain. She reads that sort of thing…and enjoys it 🙂
