Christmas is over for another year, I wasn't as excited as I should have been, but I loved having my Mum here with us for a few days.
My brother Gordon also joined us and while he was here Brian and he got a few small jobs done.
One of those was to put a temporary fence around a few of the vegetable gardens to stop the chooks and guinea fowls munching away on our young spinach plants. They also installed the new retracting hose reel that Brian got for Christmas and put a temporary shade cover over my two young blueberry bushes to protect them from that hot biting summer sun.
Ours is a grafted tree with two varieties, Satsuma and Santa Rosa plums.
Our eldest daughter and her children came to spend a few days with us over New Years, the weather was extremely hot but we managed to get through with our fans and a paddle pool for the littlies and lot's of drinks. We invited the in laws next door and their grandchildren over for New Years Eve dinner.
Brian had bought a new fancy Christmas laser light and the kids loved it how it lit up the back verandah
Brian started a new batch of chickens off in the incubator this week, some special australorp eggs from a friend and some of our Isa Brown eggs as well.
We advertised some of the half grown turkeys for sale yesterday,
We moved the 29 three week old turkeys from the brooder in the shed into the now vacant halfway house.
This week marked two years since we made the final move to live here permanently here on the farm,.
We have met and made many new friends, re acquainted ourselves with old friends, joined a few volunteer groups and had a few trips away, Life is Good !!!!
Take care of you and yours until we meet again,
Jane and Brian.
