Today was a lovely hot sunny Sunday. After a lazy morning watering the fruit trees & the veg patch, we made our own rice paper rolls for lunch with thinly sliced beef from last night's BBQ & lots of fresh salad goodies.
It was after lunch that my husband discovered that one of our black chooks had died. Book Book the black chook had been part of our family for close to seven years now & she will be missed. Our kids weren't as devastated as we expected so we had a little funeral with our daughter placing the old girl into a freshly dug hole near the back fence & our son covering her with soil. Then we all took turns paying tribute saying a few words about what we loved & remembered about our time with her over the years.
Flowers were placed on her grave & then my husband sprayed us all with the garden hose which cheered us all up as we squealed & squirmed away from the cool wet spray.
The afternoon was one of eating Mangoes & cherries & taking a long cool dip in the ocean while my parents entertained the kids in the rock pool & built sandcastles by the edge of the surf.
I'm looking forward to many more ocean swims this Summer.
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.
