Very Very Angry

Fires are burning out of control not too far from here, and 11 homes have been destroyed.
Firemen and women are putting their lives on the line to try and stop it.
And we find out that all three of the fires have been delibrately lit.
I hope they find out who did this and put them away for a long, long time.
It makes me angry everytime I hear about fires being delibrately lit.
I just do not understand these people and their mentality.
I know its a sickness, but I still do not understand what the buzz is.
A slight cool change came through yesterday afternoon. It drop 5 degrees. So 43 became 38.
Freezing really!
Have a great day

Day 3 at the gates of hell

Yes folks it so hot outside that your lungs hurt when you try to breath.
Power is going down all over the state, but thankfully not here. The trains cant run because the tracks buckle, and we are so cranky we even yell at ourselves.
Right now I am dreaming of my getaway farm in the south of Tassie.
Antarctica would be nice.
Pray to the gods of electricity that my keeps flowing, and to mother nature to turn down the heat.
Stay cool everyone.
Hang in there!

Hot Dame Hot

The title says it all really. Its very, very hot. And its going to get hotter.
Off to work at 4.oopm and I bet I will be the only one there.
Who wants to work out at the gym, when you can swelter just standing there.
This is day one of a heat wave. Apparently we are going to have 3 more days of over 40C. Thats in the very high 90'sF.
If that happens it will be the most over 40's days in a row in 100 years for melb.
Lucky arent we.
Stay cool where ever you are.
see ya

Final tally for the year.
Hay bales for this year 144
Hay bales left over from last year 15

Make hay while the sun shines

We have had our hay cut again this year. Last year we got 97 bales, but this year being the second year since re-seeding the paddock we hope for more.
we have already put some bales away in the shed. We had 15 bales left from last year and we have already carted 48 bales this year.
we post final tally and a pic as soon as all hay is brought in.
I love bringing in the hay, it means there will be plenty of feed throughout winter, and the chicken coups will be nice and warm.

Really Blessed

I am feeling very blessed. It has been a hectic start to the year. But with all my friends and family, and you all in blog land wishing me a happy birthday, it has been a happy one.
Like I already said, I am not a good one on birthdays. Its not getting older that I mind but with everyone that passes it means that time to do all that I every dreamed off is disapearing.
But now I realise that all that stuff doesnt matter. All that matters is that you live life to the fullest, make the best choices possible and leave a positive legacy for those that follow.
This year my friends have not only wished me a happy birthday they have told me how much the truely love and appreciate me as their friend.
This has never happened before. I knew it, but to be told is very special.
so tell all that you know, how you really feel. Tell them how blessed you feel that they are in your life.
Last year was a bad one for some people, and this has made us realise that nothing is for ever.
so to all my blogger friends, I may not always comment, but I always read and appreciate your wisdom.
Thank you

Be careful what you wish for

Well the new year has started. And the big news is that I have started it busier than ever. In the few weeks of the last year I not only got myself the new job at the gym, but, I got a phone call from an old boss who wanted to know if I wanted some casual emplyment with him. He used to have a very, large shop called crystal world. It was about 45 min away and a pain to get to in the peak hour traffic. But now he has built a big barn at his place and has transfered all his stock there.
I now work at least one day a week in that barn, and the best part is, its a 5 minutes walk from my place.
Now I can play with crystals, salt lamps and all sorts of stuff all day.
Anyone that knows me, knows that I love crystals so this is the perfect job.
And since I do know a little about them, I do not feel as unintelligent in this job as I do in the other.
Good for the ego.
So I do believe this will be a good year for me, and for all others.
If you truely believe it will be
