Wednesday wisdom... on a Thursday!

For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it.
For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it.
For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.

My Christmas wish-list!

Felted lavender soap by SoFino

Slugs boot liners by ThoseAlaskanGirls

Custom return address stamp by Primele

Linen purse by RubyJo

Just a couple of items I would love for Christmas, or anytime really! C ♥


Hello there. We've had a couple of days of lovely sunshine and blue skies which has been a nice touch of summer. It feels like this type of weather has been a long time coming. Lyndon serviced the windmill. This mill fills the high tank from our dam to supply the sheep troughs, flush our toilets and waters the garden. I've been doing lots of mowing and the garden is looking mighty fine! Hope all is well with you. C ♥

Daily life

Hello friends! I hope you are well and happy. All is good here on the farm. Beautiful spring weather, rain then shine. The crops are happy and so are the farmers. Unfortunately so are the mosquitos! Last weekend we went to Port Fairy with my sister Julie and her partner for a couple of days which was lovely. We wandered around the town and along the beach, ate yummy food and looked in a few shops. It was nice to get away for a little while.
I am going back to work at the bank soon so am cherishing my days at home, sleeping in and choosing what I want to do each day when I wake up. Lucky me! I have been enjoying catching up on my magazine reading and sorting out the front room now that we're using the lounge. Gardening, cooking, paying bills, cleaning, washing... life rolls on by! C ♥

Happy day!

Hello friends. Come on, do the happy dance with me! The lounge room painting is finally finished. I have moved the new sofa in along with a few other pieces of furniture and it's starting looking like a proper room. I am trying to work out what else to bring in to complete it.
Today I planted some tomatoes, strawberries and pumpkin seedlings in the vege patch. I waved my 'grow' wand over them so am looking forward to productive plants! We are off to Port Fairy tomorrow for a couple of days which will be nice. We're meeting my sister Julie and her boyfriend David there which is even nicer! The weather is forecast to be warm and sunny so yay, more happy dances! Hope you are having a lovely weekend. C ♥
