Life is short.... Occasionally bend the rules.... Forgive quickly.... Kiss slowly.... Love truly.... Laugh uncontrollably.... And, never regret anything that made you smile....

Time to take a break.


It's hot and steamy at the moment here on the farm, and I can't wait until the cool weather of autumn arrives..
We are having a very normal season..... which means  'meals-on-wheels' is very active.....



Around every second day we head out with the oat feeder  and dole out a luscious helping of 'treats' to the stock..
They absolutely love them and lick the ground clean...
When it comes to shifting a mob of sheep now, the 'ute' only has to enter the paddock and the stock will follow it anywhere... a bit like the pied piper.....



Feeding out is one of my most favorite jobs.. You get to check the health of your stock every time you see them.... check for weeds... and talk about 'things' while you are together with your partner in the 'ute'...

We do have some decisions to make this year. They will be difficult ones.. How do you get your partner to acknowledge that it may be time to scale down?
It is difficult to look into that loved face and see pain etched in his expression..
It is difficult to see him walk stooped with pain. He doesn't say anything, but what he doesn't know is every action and every expression  gives it away...
It is difficult to say it is time to enjoy life a little more....

So, as we make some decisions, and do an awful lot of getting this farm back into 'order', I will take a break from blogging..


So, as I  take  my break, may your homes be full of love,  laughter and happiness.... and may no problem be insurmountable..xxxx
