Where It's At

\When last I wrote, I talked about the job of cleaning up the back paddock of weeds. This is what it looks like now.


We can't take credit for it - our neighbour did all the work to get the ground ready for his cattle over Winter. 

Him using our paddocks has really been the ultimate win-win situation.

It did inspire Dan to get out and do the side paddock. At times like this, we REALLY need a tractor - he was out there most of the day.


Meanwhile, a cold snap and plenty of rain has meant I can finally dress Lu in some of her cute winter clothes...

...and her equally cute wet weather gear (she has a new haircut - gorgeous, no?)

In the Big House, work continues as always. Soon, I'll have something more dramatic to reveal here.

I'm starting the process of surrounding the Little House with new flower beds...

And beyond that, we're settling in for another cool Winter and desperately wishing we had a log fire - but we improvise outdoors in the afternoon...


  1. Her haircut is so so cute! Bet you're cold out there today, it's cold in Brisbane - where did that sunny weather go? Melindi
    PS I'm reading blogs when I should be painting my son's bedroom and having said that, I feel guilty enough to go and do the 2nd coat now...

  2. Great photos again lovely! love your rustic deck :)

  3. Your daughter is very beautiful. It's so nice she has the chance to live close to the nature. I wish more kids had her luck!

  4. De lurking to say I have been following you since the beginning from the the down to earth link, thoroughly enjoyed the journey so far and still hoping that you may return to this blog. Hope all is well with you and yours.
