Shaky day

After last night's storm and skiff of snow, I woke this morning to a stunningly beautiful still, clear day - and the news that a huge (7.2) earthquake had messed Christchurch up pretty bad. All my people down there are accounted for and ok, I hope yours are too.

I decided to take advantage of the lovely weather and go check the sheep. When I got there, Fumes was nowhere to be found.

And at home, it's still a stunningly beautiful day. I'm gonna do some washing, unload the car, and mow the lawn. I might trim the hedge. It's a day for pastoral pastimes, and I'm up for some doing-without-thinking now.

* At least that's what Suzanne says. I wouldn't put it past her to have done it herself and then tried to pin it on these people and us.
