Hi folks!Have y…
Have you ever had a vacation, where you were home alone inside the fenced wall of your father’s modest building? Well, as I write this, I am home alone for a week to watch the house. Most especially, the eight goats and eight-broiler chicken. My job is to feed them daily for a week. They pacified me by buying enough fuel to last me for a week and dropped a lump sum. Of course, those goats would suffer much in my hand because I do not understand the need for my parent’s little animal farm at the back of the house. If you are a student of Agric, kindly come for your industrial attachment in my house [the backyard]. There is also a small vegetable garden at the back which consist of Vernonia amygdalina [ewuro] Amaranthus sp.and the likes.
The he- goats are especially stubborn, kicking and hitting their female counterparts. They make noise occasionally, most especially at night. But who said goats aren’t intelligent, once they discovered that there owners didn’t come to feed them in the morning, they behaved themselves. I have not heard a single noise today. Even the chickens proved to be well mannered. They all matched into their cozy apartment in the cage at night. I didn’t have to force them in. So far, we have all been having a good time together.
Funnily, i have been enjoying the solitude. I had to read Buchi Emecheta’s autobiography all over again, about how she survived in London as a single mother of 5 kids who got married at 16. At 22, she already had all her kids. I have Yonggi Cho’s Fourth Dimension waiting in line. I don’t know the number of times i’ve read that book, it’s always refreshing. Yet, i have loads of weekend newspaper that i am yet to read. I am not a movie fan; i prefer reading a book rather than seeing a great movie. Therefore, i find myself busy in my own company.
Cooking while reading has resulted into two pots being burnt in one day so am gladly making do with tea and chocolate flavoured cream wafers. I don’t eat much anyway. You think it’s boring?? Well, not for a melancholic like me, i sure enjoy my own company especially quiet environments. I enjoy being me.
I have loads of article yet to be posted partly because of my faulty system and later MTN deducting my airtime. I sucked for days but now I have a better deal, 20 hours for a 7day validity. I’ll rush all my posts this week and I have quite some interesting and fantastic pieces e.g getting married for the wrong reasons, her first love and interview 001. So, simply watch out. Love you all, my amiable readers. Thanks for being there.
I heard the Nigerian blog award is out and writers are being nominated for this year’s awards. I am not just keen on it yet. Am still building my audience base. However, it’s comforting to know that such awards exist. Very soon, i’ll revisit all my past awards in detail. Keep your fingers crossed.
