Sleet or Snow?

The weather forcast here today is for snow, at the moment we have a rain, snow and sleet combination happening! burr! When I first woke up it was only sleet... Very pretty picture of the sleet falling on our violets!

I can't believe how windy it has been today! All roads from my work back into town were blocked for 3 hours today! I was very relieved to be home with only minimal damage. Debris on the road and was very glad that I was driving an all wheel drive, some minor flooding and some small trees had falled down but not blocked the road. Sadly though the beautiful tree in our front yard has lost a branch and fell on the paddock fence...
Our new weather station indicates that we have had 41mm of rain today! I don't believe the wind speed readings though! It must have recorded them between gusts...

my current crochet project...

Not long ago I decided to learn to crochet... My first project is a brown granny square crochet blanket with some brown wool that I'd bought for another project but had never started!
4 blocks done... many to go!

birthday eggs

So the chooks pulled out something special for Andrew's birthday! A huge double yoke egg! check out the size difference between the normal size eggs and the huge egg. The double yoke egg didn't even fit in the egg carton!

Breakfast was beautiful our own eggs, local bacon, fresh bread and some mushrooms.
Happy Birthday Andrew!

Our chickens have been ramping up to full production, 6 eggs today for the first time! We have some wonderful friends staying with us this weekend who have been helping us out in the garden. When we went to find eggs this morning we found that all 6 chickens had gifted us with eggs! 4 were in this particular nesting box and made such a pretty picture!
