About megleigh

When not busy writing, Meg Leigh spends her time tending to the most pampered flock of chickens on Australia’s east coast. She would really like to have dragons, but has settled for chickens because they come pretty close. If you need proof of this, try offering a flock of chickens raw meat! (Meg would like to advise she accepts no liability for loss of fingers!) Meg also enjoys reading, keeping fit with her bunch of madcap mates at the local park, and spending time with her adult offspring whenever their schedules allow.

    Loved your list…thanks for sharing. I practice an “attitude of gratitude” and try to list life’s simple pleasures all of the time. It was a simple pleasure to read a list written by a sister. It is so nice to have that “L – connection.”
