At least now it feels like christmas.
When we looked at it we found it acually had a broken neck. We do not know how this happend.
So now its in the fridge and it will be tonights dinner.
This is sad as once killed we found out it was a female.
But if we had left it, it would of died in a lot of pain.
So I will let you know how goose meat tasts like.

Me arguing with the powers that be that the reason these children arnt in school is that they have no homes.
No one listening

Must rush, nearly 10.00 and the chooks have not been let out yet. And boy is the rooster telling me about it.
Monday, December 15, 2008
I dont think its all the doom and gloom from the media, because I just dont watch that, but there is something.
If anyone can tell me what it is I would be grateful.
Maybe I just need a bex and a lay down!

He is soooo cute that he is allowed.
Now that the kids are all grown up he is the one I baby. And no matter where I go in the house he is right behind me.
Every night we sit in bed and watch TV together.
Without him I would be lost.

He is fine except for a broken bone in his hand.
He was on a three day motorbike ride with about 20 others and had left on friday.
Saturday just after lunch I got the phone call to say he was at Wangaratta Hospital but that he was fine.
UNTIL I GET THERE!
No I didnt kill him.
So tomorrow I will introduce you to the king of our castle.

This is molly. She is a 20 month old short hair border collie. I named her after Molly Weasley in the Harry Potter books.
She is so cute she gets away with everything.
So training her is very hard, but we are getting there.
Next time we will meet the acual owner of the house and he just lets us live there.
Thursday, December 04, 2008
In the next few days I will show you my other babies. They are not farm animals but a part of our family and we would be lost without them.
Hope you and your family are all happy and healthy.

Bad luck birdie

The weather is still crazy but the rain is nice.
Off to finish quilting homework.
Saturday, November 22, 2008
Its so cold I have done something I seldom do. I have turned on the ducted heating.
My poor garden doesnt know what to do. Im sure it thinks the 3 days of heat we had was summer and is starting to go back to sleep. I am so glad that I planted the pumkings in the hot house or else I wonder would I have gotton a crop this year.
It hailed pretty heavily this morning so I wonder what the produce in the main garden area will look like when I finally pluck up the courage to go outside.
And my poor little chicken that decided to hatch a batch of eggs under the bush plant, I hope she is alright, even if the eggs dont hatch.
Busy day today, baby girl has her dance concert. Two performances and 11 dances in each. She will be a tuckerd little girl.
Have a great day, stay warm and dry.

Mean while my 42nd birthday is rushing towards me and since my children are growing up and away from me I am really having an identidy crisis.
I was married at 21, only 3 years after leaving school.
A mother at 22 and at 24.
I have been someones daughter, sister, wife, mother...etc all my life but I have never been me.
Who am I?
Not knowing is bad enough but finding out is really scary.
What if I dont like me? What if I am exactely the type of person that annoys the crap out of me?
All this is going on in my head and boy is it driving me crazy.
I hope the energy shifts and I get over this.
Tuesday, November 18, 2008
boy am I exhausted.
Friday, November 14, 2008
Now the gardens look so clean and green and have come back to life. Not to mention that the tanks are all topped up.
Even I feel better, I have been very grumpy as I do not like the heat. The chooks in the back yard are going nuts so even they like it better now its cooler.
Hope you get some rain where you are

At least the ladies are very nice and It was fun.
Hopefully I will "get it" soon and I wont feel like such a dummy.
My job is working at the gym that I have been going to for the last 18 months. At least I know how to use the machines. LOL

We were very tired but the gardens look great. I will post some pictures as soon as I take them. Hopefully later today.
My other productive endeavour was today when I got a job!
At the gym that I go to they needed someone to only do two shifts a week. Perfect for me as I have plenty to do here but also like the idea of doing something outside of the home. This means that my gym membership is now free as an emplyee.
Thats a saving of $600.00 a year!!
Plus the money I earn will go towards paying off the credit card. As christmas is nearly here that will be great. I have made alot of home made gifts this year to keep costs down and so I have nearly fininshed my christmas shopping anyway. Only hubby and two offspring really left to do.
Am I a clever little dickens or what.
Hope your day is blessed too.

No matter how full the bin under the sink is no one thinks to empty it.
Then on bin night the bins dont get taken out, or the next day brought back in.
No one emptys the kitty litter (apparantly only I can smell it).
No one remembers to lock up the chooks at night. Only had them 5 years these things take time!.
Even if the dishwasher is empty plates get left in the sink.
Cloths that are folded in neat piles get left on the billiard table.
When reminded to put away, away means left on the bedroom floor.
That when I do remind, ask, demand or have a hissy fit, I am a nag.
Why is it?

People often ask me what I do as I " dont work".
Boy I wish I had the laid back life they think I have.
Now Im off to the gym, Do a very short shop, get home water the vegies and the fruit trees, organise lunch and clean up after the boys have it, and try to decide what to have for dinner.
At least baby girl doesnt have dancing tonight.
Then I'll collect the eggs and lock up the animals for bed.
I think I'll hit the sack then too.

Some dirty lowdown bird had got to it first.
So today I will be going to the op shop and get my self some window netting and I will cover the whole lot so I can get the second strawberry of the season.

Anyway have to pick up the daughter and the boys will be home today sometime and I bet 10 minutes after they all get here I will be wishing I was on my own again, nice and quiet.

Then our neighbour across the road saw stray cattle on the road and assumed I had purchased more stock to add to the family. Not they were not mine but we chased one of them into a neighbours paddock. This was easy as the fences were not that good. Then the owners of the cow found us and said that they had just got delivery of the two calfs and that they had gotton out of the paddock immediately their backs had turned. We asked if they had electric fences and they answered yes, but they had not unpacked it yet!
Then they left the cow in the paddock, with the bad fences, and went to dinner with friends.
So all night I have been up regularly watching for the cow to come out of the paddock and making sure it wont eat my fruit trees in the second orchard I planted only 18 months ago. As I type this I can hear it calling its mate and It has gotten out of the paddock it was in last night and into another neighbours paddock. And I havnt seen or heard from the owners since 6.00 yesterday afternoon.
Some people shouldnt think about having animals.

It also helps me stick to my healthy eating plan and hopefully continue to lose weight.
Meanwhile three gardens have been planted out and mulched over the weekend and soon will be enjoying all the summer foods. After a month or so we will plant out the last garden been and ensure a longer harvest period.
Hope the sun shines, and the rain falls where you are.
