The first week of 2010 has ended showing much promise for the year ahead. With beautiful rain since Christmas, the land is transforming before our eyes. Can you believe that the above photo is of the same paddock shown below, and only a month ago. Clearly a case of "just add water". Matthew planted forage after the first inch, and with about another five on top, we'll be making hay while the sun shines in a month or so.
This week saw much achieved.
A little burning,
a little cleaning, a little gardening, a day mustering at "Chabo",
We also had a trip to town to purchase school supplies (so proud of myself getting in so early), only to find many shops close to sold out of many items - how organised are these mums!!! Sarah and Jess are still enjoying time in town with Nan and Grandad, while Wallace and Sally have spent most days harassing their poor old ponies, who are starting to cringe when they see this pair of buckaroos approaching.
Sal of course has a full time job keeping the pump running.
