As I was reading Kim's blog yesterday, she was worried that the property around her is going to be sold and developed on, taking away her no neighbour living in the country feel. It made me reflect on where we live. We have five acres and our neighbour owns 39 acres, all around us. Imagine a "C" shape, we are the hole in the "C". Luckily though for us, our township only allows 2 severances per original homestead/farm of 100 acres. In our case those severances have already been done. We are the original homestead, the neighbours above us have the 39 acres, and behind us is another property with the rest of the acreage. So there can be no more dividing of the land. Also the land directly behind us is so hilly that it's not much use for anything other than pasture. If anyone wants to put animals in there, they are going to have to re fence the whole property which I actually don't have a problem with. Also I have no problem living next to a field full of animals. So I think I can safely say we shouldn't be getting any more neighbours of the human kind any time soon!!
My poor old swiffer gave up the ghost the other day. I have had it since they first came out, so it has earned its keep!!
The new one looks all very fancy dancy, and is actually a bit longer, as although I am only 5' 5" the old one was a bit short.
We went to dd's on Saturday afternoon and we took them, including ds out for supper to Mr. Greek. It was good and it had been a while since we had, had Greek food.
I made dd a birthday cake. However mine isn't as fancy as when she decorates cakes. Mine was a packet brownie mix, with store bought frosting to go on the top. Her "pet" name is Cons, that isn't her real name.
I had bought her a cake pan the same as the one I had baked the brownies in, so I took the cake down in the tin, and brought hers home.
Managed to get some more jobs done in the garden, including planting some more spring bulbs. Fingers crossed the squirrels and the mice don't eat them all!!
