Strange Caterpillar

It's been an interesting week, wildlife-wise. We had a snake cross near the house. I told it where to go, let me tell you. It was quite fascinating watching how it moves, though, and seeing it's tongue flicking about.

And this bizarre looking fellow surprised Don under a leaf of a tree he was trimming back. Ouch! Long gloves might be in order for pruning!

The caterpillar reminds me strangely of a sea cucumber - our eldest chicken's new favourite animal. It's her favourite because it can shoot it's innards out... etc, etc. Gross. It's not surprising that she likes Roald Dahl books so much, is it?

Good things

We had a good day today, on Good Friday.

But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5

I had some fun with paint and canvas, and the 'thankful hands' that the children wrote at church.

There's something about the colour orange at the moment - I just can't get enough of it! I'm going to try some more of these stripey canvases I think - they're so fun!

Here are some photos from the Baptism service we had in March. Very proud of these two.
