Well the whole day turned into a series of wacky events that had me thinking "be careful what you put out there to the universe!" because the Universe certainly delivered wackiness to me once I had proclaimed it.
As I giggled my way along the road for the first mile (1.6 kilometres), I chatted to the beautiful palomino stallion, the magpies and of course the screeching cockatoos. I looked at the puddles on the road and thought "if I really wanted to I could actually jump in those puddles and watch them splash". Clearly there was a child like nature coming out in me and I was enjoying the whole experience!
As I reached the end of our road, I saw two of the cattle we are currently looking after, grazing on the side of the road, not in the paddock where they should have been. And so began an afternoon of hilarity!
I called Ken to come to the rescue and we proceeded to herd the young heiffers back into the paddock and I continued on my merry way - up hill down dale, taking photo's, shooting little movies and embracing life! I was in absolute bliss, laughing, skipping and then laughing out loud - even louder! And no one could hear me! (even better!)
On the way home, as I plodded along up the hills I began to realise that I could think of a word from every letter of the alphabet to describe my wonderful day!
A - Amazing
B - Black Angus being naughty
C - Charolais cows (not ours)
D -Ditch that I almost fell into rounding up cattle
E - Escapees!
F - Fun!
G - Gates - always leave them how you find them
H - Hills
I - I love to laugh
J - Joyful moments
K - Ken to the rescue
L - Love and Life!
M - Magpies warbling
.................and so it went! I actually did complete the whole alphabet, but now that it's no longer Wednesday, my Wonderful Wacky mind has forgotten the rest!
I'm sure you can imagine the FUN I had! Do you ever to crazy things like that??
What's even funnier is that later in the afternoon, they escaped AGAIN. Only it was three not two that time, and so the antics continued, followed by some much needed repairs to an ageing fence. It seems "the grass is greener on the other side" really does ring true, and the cows had been leaning on the fence so much that they'd pushed it down low enough to be able to simply climb over and get to the greener pickings. Cows are not really all that dumb are they ?!
And if I can figure out how to upload the videos I took on my phone I'll come back & post them later!
Till next time
