bits and pieces..............

As I can't have a post without a photo this is one I snapped earlier in the week..........
Wednesday was 27deg here and only went down to 18deg over night...........quite funny as Sun and Mon didn't even get to 18deg..........storms came thru yesterday afternoon and the temps will be back down again today..........
Slight change with the girls sewing..........no sleepover tonight just sewing tomorrow..........can't wait........not too disappointed as another sleepover is in the plans in a few weeks time...........
yesterday I was in the chook shed sorting and cleaning out the last of the cupboards only a few to do today and some draws and I am done with the cleaning.........then I can organise some more of the stuff............it's great getting things packed away.........
&&&
SSCS Update...........
I am in need of a few more overseas bloggers who want to join.............as it has always been international I would like to keep that so we have a few extras on the Aussie list compared to the international list.........international girls email me @ chookybluesscs@gmail.com...

Stupid blogger changed something yesterday and you know how I said you don't need to include the numbers in the comment verification box well you do now...........I had a terrible time getting those boxes right yesterday so please think seriously about leaving it on your blog.............it's turning me off commenting on blogs.............turn on comment moderation after xxx days if you want to check things............
I was thinking maybe it was just me until Jo sent me an email and she was having a bad day yesterday too...........those letters are really hard to work out..............
added this post will help you

  4. Yesterday's weather was such a tease. Sunny but cold and windy today - can't go on much longer. Couldn't agree more about verification, and it seems to be harder on some blogs than others. Maybe everyone is too cold to post! Better go and find something to take a picture of.

  5. I turned word verification off...it's so annoying! I get the occasional spam comment, but figure it's much easier to hit delete than make people try to read those letters!
    I've been a bit quiet this week...sick kids, sick me, hubby away, stuff to do. Hope you had a great birthday...I even missed that! I finished my SKoW quilt top too...just been too busy to take photos! Must get onto that....

    Enjoy your sewing day!

  9. Always love your nature pictures!
    Great with a new SSCS on the way. Thanks a lot for nice comments on my blog :-)

  10. Yep, those letters do my head in too. What a gorgeous photo - and I'm so pleased to be joining in the swap again.

  11. I often catch up with my blogs on my iPhone and I can tell you that safety/ number system is a pain in the neck. It took me four goes to comment on Kate's blog, I almost gave up.
    Ok I m with you I am going to remove it from my blog

    Loving the weather

  12. Oh how true - word verification does deter me from commneting as much. I think its quiet in blogland because a lot of us are busy with SKOW!!
    The weather is Brisbane is warming up too - 28 yesterday and again today - expecting a storm but still waiting. B Summer is here already!

  13. I'm still here!
    Gone quiet due to Sleepover ENVY Mrs Chookstar.

  14. Well us here in Victoria are trying to thaw out,Spring had better hurry up, we can see the blossoms as they get drenched with another shower of sleet, then the sun then the wind. Moaning Mona today.

  15. Is it nearly SSCS already, geez time flies. Hopefully more people will turn word verification off, i've almost given up leaving comments on blogs that have it on.

  16. 34C here yesterday, I think summer is on the way!

  17. Spring has sprung! Have a wonderful sewing day tomorrow ........ does no sleepover mean less of the 'essentials' being consumed, or is to be a champagne brekkie?
    I have had huge trouble with the word/number combos too, they are a pain in the butt!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yes the weather has been changing lately - nice! Although I don't want the heat of summer just yet! I turned the word verification off my blog the other night.

    ReplyDelete
  19. The weather certainly has been whacko in the last few days. Back to cold and windy here today. Have a great day stitching tomorrow. I agree with your thoughts on word verification. I think the letters are becoming harder to decipher.

  20. well I am another on that dislike the number and letter I was leaving a comment last week on some one blog after 5 gose I gave up. I hate, hate, hate it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I also have "robot" problems...glad it is not just me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Our weather too is all over the place.
    I second what you said about verification - so hard to make out the letters. If I have to try more than twice I dump my comment and leave.

  23. Lovely sunny day here today Chooky! And yep I agree with those stupid verification thingys!! Annoying!!! Lovely picture and great to hear the chookshed is being spruced up and rearing to go!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I detest that unreadable number & word verification--and made sure no one has to go through that on my blog. I'll try once or twice on someone elses blog, and then I decide they don't care what I have to say anyway. (Yes, I get spam, but so far it's been caught before it gets to my audience.)

  25. Your wattle header is so pretty!! I'm enjoying seeing the wattles in flower. I get turned off commenting if there's those robot words. I often use my iPhone for browsing and I just can't make out what the words/numbers are. I have begun to think maybe I am a robot. That warm day last week was unusual, and we've had very windy days here!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh Chooky, I am so envious of your 27 deg. It has barely made it over 10 here for the past few days. So looking forward to the warmer days ahead.

  27. I just found your blog through Shez, and agree with all the comments about verification. Actually, I thought we had to turn it on and didn't realise mine was on... Being on the northwestern part of Norway, we have had a 'green winter' this summer, with few days over 20 degrees. I would love to participate in the swap, so I'll send you an email :-). Cheers from Siri in Norway.

  28. Not sure what is up with Blogger. I've had several people complain that they had to repeatedly do the name verification just to leave me a message. Very frustrating! I get so much Spam that I'm afraid to turn mine off.
