You'll be pleased to hear yesterday's Acco-venture went without hiccup. A load of cattle transported to Bottle Tree without major incident, a procession of 'slow' signs as opposed to 'stop' signs through the various roadworks between here and town, and then green lights most of the way through civilisation. A lucky day indeed.
Today started with a breakfast recently sighted on one of those cooking shows. Crepes rolled with a filling of ham and gruyere cheese.
A hearty start to a day filled with strainers ...
and ending with a completed fence-line. Fred the retired wonder-dog joined us, too precious to travel in the back of the ute with most of the kids,
he takes pride of place on the back seat.
We returned home in that golden hour of beautiful Autumn lighting,
with enough time for Dad to put a little more work into the dog cages,
while chores were completed.
A bumper crop of mandarins have everybody watching for a change of colour,
though lemons are good to go.
Ruby kept a close eye on Mama Pig
while this fat porker enjoyed his last supper. With hungry children with a penchant for bacon, ham or sausages for breakfast, he'll enter the cold room tomorrow afternoon.
