Farm work

I know chooks are always a favourite so thought I'd share these today.

I have good news! Finally found the tool that will get me to clean the house!! No, not something I spotted on a late night infomercial, it is a great site for books on the ipod! This fabulous new-to-me site called audible.com and they have all my favourites, even unabridged Georgette Heyer. I had been looking in bookshops and some books on Cd were up towards the $100-and there were very few good titles...that's a lot of normal books! I have been exercising and cleaning to Heyer's "These old Shades" for 2 weeks and it has made those normally tedious jobs a pleasure! You don't have to go just for historical romances though, it has everything, even Janet Evanovich, but Australians are only allowed the short versions, not the long of Evanovich, i wonder why? For the first 3 months it is $7.50 a month to join, which gives you one included book download a month and a discount on the others. I am loving it, and the hardest decision is what i download next. I also have Rebecca, and Pride and Prejudice.

In between all that i have proof that I do in fact do some real work around here. There was noone around to take a picture of me helping with lamb marking, but my boy decided to get some snaps of me and his father sorting the weaner cattle to go to the saleyards.
No fancy Pioneer woman horsey shots of chaps here, just me still in my circuit training clothes, with the runners swapped for workboots!
Rosie the pup escaped and thought she may like to train with cattle!! I am just saving her from her folly ....

Probably not a good career path for a pampered pooch who still lives very close to the ground!
Hope your day is great,
If you have any other book good download sites, feel free to share, Tracey

Ohh love the work gear and I bet the cows were impressed. When's hubby going to lift his game with his work gear....vbg. Best duck before he throws a cow pat at me...lol.. Thanks for the link for the audio books. Will check them out - anything to motivate me to do housework.

I may just have to try an audio book. I've always been afraid my mind would wander and I would lose the story *s*

I love audiobooks, and have been hooked for years. I first subscribed so that I'd have 'books' on a long trip without the bulk. Now they keep me company while I sew, too.

What a great idea with the audio books. You get two things done at once then!!! Happy cleaning or is that reading.

Love those fuzzy chooks, grin.

I love Georgette Heyer's books, I have read every one of them at least twice.

I have borrowed audio books from the library. They are a great idea. Poor little pup, he must be fearless.
