Welcome back to Sunday Selections.
Begun way back in the mists of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
Just a few pictures to finish the year, before I take a break.
I like to buy truly free range eggs as often as I can and was delighted to find these with only 14 "chookens" per hectare.
To be classified as Free Range, chicken farmers must have no more than 10-15000 hens per hectare. If you ask me, that's far too many chooks in a small space. The big supermarkets buy "free range" eggs from farmers who have the allowable limit. Those eggs are often pale yellow and have no taste.
this is what it says on the box: "We are a small family business using an EXTRAORDINARY & sustainable egg production system. Our 'Cruising Chookens' live in MOBILE homes because we are using them to REGENERATE our land., spreading their valuable nutrients all over the farm, under the watchful protection of their guardian dog K9. They are 100% FREE to roam, scratch and dig whilst also fertilising the soil! Mobile chookens =clean pasture and environment for the animals. A SUSTAINABLE CYCLE, the chookens feed the plants, and the plants feed the chookens. We LOVE our chookens and we ADORE our EARTH EGGS, we hope you do too.
Sal, Bill and Bridget Hood."
This is PERMACULTURE! a system I've long been a fan of. I haven't yet tasted these eggs, the test comes tomorrow morning at breakfast.
hiding sleeping behind the curtains. Right now she is back to hiding under the bed where it is dark, I suspect she has another bad headache caused by her hayfever and will be going to the vet again as soon as I can make the appointment. This will be the third time this season, I hate to see her suffering. I have occasional migraines myself and know how bad that feels.

a forgotten decoration which has been in place for several years now, it gets dusted every time I dust the books and shelves
a blizzard in a snowglobe. What could it be hiding?
a cute little polar bear wearing a scarf
a second snowglobe has Santa
with his own less dense blizzard
of course now that Christmas is over, Santa is enjoying a well deserved tropical holiday, in a hammock slung between two palm trees. If you enlarge the photo, you may see he is wearing a swimsuit and holding a tropical drink.
being Santa, he is able to use his magic to whip up a mini blizzard whenever the tropics get a bit too warm.
I'll be back (famous last words) with Sunday Selections, I just don't know when. Taking, processing and sorting the photos to be used takes me quite a bit of time and there are other things I need to be doing.
