It was a long weekend here this weekend, and we were looking forward to a nice dinner out and getting lots done around the house. But between a very rainy Saturday; a last minute all-day babysit on Sunday; and me getting the dreaded lurgy yesterday; we didn't do any of the things we hoped to. Oh well.
We did have some cockys (sulphur crested cockatoos) visit us on Saturday afternoon, a common backyard sight, except that they were much closer to the house than usual - I think they were enjoying all the rain-displaced bugs in the lawn. They are so common here that I sometimes forget how amazing they are - such big birds and so white.
