No matter how full the bin under the sink is no one thinks to empty it.
Then on bin night the bins dont get taken out, or the next day brought back in.
No one emptys the kitty litter (apparantly only I can smell it).
No one remembers to lock up the chooks at night. Only had them 5 years these things take time!.
Even if the dishwasher is empty plates get left in the sink.
Cloths that are folded in neat piles get left on the billiard table.
When reminded to put away, away means left on the bedroom floor.
That when I do remind, ask, demand or have a hissy fit, I am a nag.
Why is it?

People often ask me what I do as I " dont work".
Boy I wish I had the laid back life they think I have.
Now Im off to the gym, Do a very short shop, get home water the vegies and the fruit trees, organise lunch and clean up after the boys have it, and try to decide what to have for dinner.
At least baby girl doesnt have dancing tonight.
Then I'll collect the eggs and lock up the animals for bed.
I think I'll hit the sack then too.

Then our neighbour across the road saw stray cattle on the road and assumed I had purchased more stock to add to the family. Not they were not mine but we chased one of them into a neighbours paddock. This was easy as the fences were not that good. Then the owners of the cow found us and said that they had just got delivery of the two calfs and that they had gotton out of the paddock immediately their backs had turned. We asked if they had electric fences and they answered yes, but they had not unpacked it yet!
Then they left the cow in the paddock, with the bad fences, and went to dinner with friends.
So all night I have been up regularly watching for the cow to come out of the paddock and making sure it wont eat my fruit trees in the second orchard I planted only 18 months ago. As I type this I can hear it calling its mate and It has gotten out of the paddock it was in last night and into another neighbours paddock. And I havnt seen or heard from the owners since 6.00 yesterday afternoon.
Some people shouldnt think about having animals.

It also helps me stick to my healthy eating plan and hopefully continue to lose weight.
Meanwhile three gardens have been planted out and mulched over the weekend and soon will be enjoying all the summer foods. After a month or so we will plant out the last garden been and ensure a longer harvest period.
Hope the sun shines, and the rain falls where you are.

This is a batch of beetroot pickles that I made today. These beetroots have been growing all winter and will add lots of flavour to our summer salads. We harvested lots of beetroots and it took all morning to get them into the glass and it produced 6 jars. Next winter I will plant lots more as it doesnt seem like alot of produce for all the work. I will plant more beetroot now and have it fresh all summer long too.

A really good read is rhonda blog down to earth, which you will find on my links section. She has some great advice on how to get ready and survive any hard times that you might encounter.
Reading all the blogs I do, I get lots of great ideas, but also I know that there are others out there all experiencing what I am and together we can all pull through.
