New babies

Yesterday 5 new little goslings hatched and they were so cute walking around with their parents. The second goose is still sitting on her eggs so hopefully they will hatch soon too.
When they get bigger I will try to sell them and use the money to buy feed for the three breeders I will keep.
I cant keep them all as they do not have enough grass to feed them all.
So the circle of life continues and this years batch of goslings are already bigger than last years. Last year only one goose sat on eggs and she only hatched 4 live ones.
I love mother nature, don't you

Heading to a happy place

Sorry about the last post. I was not in a happy place. This weather is really getting me down. After a promise of spring I got all excited and motivated to get stuck outside and get some serious gardening done. But now I am stuck inside and I can see the weeds growing right before my eyes.
The AFL grand final is over for another year and unfortunately for the saints fans they did not get the fairy tail ending they wanted. But congratulations to the cats, well done.
And I even enjoyed myself at the wedding last night, as I always do. I am a homebody and the thought of getting dressed up and going out is always hard for me, but once I get to the destination I always enjoy my self.
Meanwhile on the home improvement front, dear old hubbies concrete mate said he can do the job next week so hopefully the weather improves for that.
Enjoy you Sunday, I know will have a quiet one.

Shake Rattle and Roll

Boy this year the earth has move for me. Last night at 6.20pm we had two very significant earthquakes that actually was a bit scary.
They were not particularly strong on according to the news, only 2.5 and 3.0 but they were not far from here and only a little way down in the earth.
The epicenter was only a few klms away. Just 3 minutes by car! Thats a little too close for comfort.
Meanwhile dust storms in NSW, Hail and flooding in SA, and bushfires in QLD.
The Gods have really gone crazy.
Stay well everyone

Busy doing stuff

Busy day today, wonderson and I cleaned out the chicken coup and put it all on the compost heap. Dear old hubby and I wormed the goats and he cleaned up the neglected vegetable garden out the back.
He bought himself a new self propelled rotary hoe and he had dug the garden over in a very short time!
Money well worth spent.
Jobs this afternoon will be to put down the crushed rock so the concrete floor can be poured next week.
Windows will be ready early the week after and then my craft room will be ready for me to paint soon after that.
I hope.
Picked up the new sewing machine yesterday, and bought the second hand overlocker home too.
So very exciting here.
I have so many projects I want to start and I can't wait.
Have a great weekend.

Cusion covers are now finished except for sewing on the buttons.
Craft room has been measured and windows are being ordered as I type this.
I have put on layby my new quilters sewing machine. I got an absolute bargain. The normal price for the machine is $2700.00, but my teacher who owns the store, told me to hang on as she felt that it would go on sale for christmas.
Well today they saw that the price did drop, but much more than even she expected.
$1999.00. I quickly ordered one and paid the deposit. Because I had saved the $2700.00 to spend I was able to order the sewing table that goes with it for $500.00. That means I still have $200.00 left.
Now I can buy lots more material to make more quilts.
I love a bargain don't you

Week 2 On Tony Ferguson

Had my weigh in this morning and I have lost one kilo this week.
So pretty happy with my self.
Worked at Crystal World yesterday as an emergency fill in.
I had lots of crackle quartz that I had to put into kilo boxes. Very pretty in their pinks and purples, and various other colours.
But being man made the dye was coming off them and onto my hands.
Not pretty! Still lots of people love them.
Not much else happening around here just the usual, I have got lots of seedling to plant out into the vegetable garden so I might get stuck in and get that done.

My new room.

As I type I can hear the hammering and banging going on outside. This is because dear old hubby and wonderson are pulling up the decking on part of the deck which will be enclosed and built as a sewing room for me.
I am 42 years old and have never had a room of my own. I have always shared with my sister and now my husband.
So this is very exciting for me. This will be totally my room to sew, or knit or read, or anything I want.
will post pics soon I promise.
what are you doing this weekend?

Finally Finished

These are what I have been working on for the last few months. I havn't had much spare time so I mainly worked on then during class times. Now all I have to do is turn them into cushion covers.
That will be next class, it will be fun picking out the fabric for that. Clicking on the pics will make them bigger.

Life is good.

Life at the moment is pretty good. I have been busy working in the office, which is now very organised and up to date, and just getting everything else in the home in order.
Baby girl performed her last ever school play and it was fantastic. All the lead roles were performed really well, but I have to say that the girl who played " lumier" stole the show.
At the end Baby girl received a photo frame with pictures of her in all the plays she was in as a momento of her time with the school and as a thank you for all her efforts.
She was so excited, as normally only those students that had performed every year got one. She did not perform in the one in her first year, as she was very shy. But she has been very helpful in all 5 shows she has been in, with choreography and teaching the younger students the dance steps.
So all in all things are going well.

Spring clean myself

Tis the first day of spring and that urge to clean and purge has set in.
First thing I did today was to go and join Tony Ferguson. I dont like these places normally knowing that you need to learn to eat healthy, and not just do the fad diets, but I have noticed myself falling into bad habits again and I think this will help me.
I contiually skip meals, and then over eat when I do, so the meal replacement shakes will stop that. I hope!
I hope to also relearn what a healthy portion is. Its all habit forming and this will give me a boost again.
So come on the journey with me and I will keep you up to date on the progress I make.
