Brian had been preparing an area up beside our existing rain water storage tank ready for the tank that we were relocating from down in the house yard.
The BIL next door kindly allowed us to get base sand from his farm,
We then waited until our son came to visit one weekend and he helped us to begin moving the tank.
The boys were then able to move and position the tank with ease, I was sacked ( as I was voicing my nervous and worried opinion maybe a little too much)
We butchered another bunch of turkeys and chickens( as well as selling a few turkeys this time),
We have seen the safe arrival of 7 baby lambs this season, (one set of twins) ,
They are such cute little babies, and these four seemed liked they actually posed for my photograph.
Our daughter came to visit for a few days with three of our grandchildren, we had a wonderful few days, The girls loved checking for eggs with their Poppy and seeing some baby chickens we had,
and we did a picnic at the park in a nearby town where there was a great play ground.
The slow cooker has been my very good friend of late as I have been trying to use up the non grill, stir fry, bake type of cuts from the freezer , and the slow cooker works well, giving us at least 2 or 3 meals each per cook.
I have made turkey and chicken casseroles,
Our chilies continue to flourish,
It all proved to be very popular at my stall, I sold Mustard pickles, Mango sauce,Tomato sauce, jalapeno jelly and Habanero Jelly.
I had a successful day, selling over $200 worth of goods. I think I may try to do another market before to long some where else to see how it goes.
I got in and cleaned up and organized the front porch last week and made it a pleasant place for us to sit and have our early morning coffee as the sun rises.
Last night was the coolest night we have had this season so far, and we decided to light up the fire for a few hours to just take the chill off the house.
We have been busy, but we have thoroughly enjoyed all the work and play. We feel like progress is being made and we are having a good time along the way.
Until we meet again down the track,
Brian and Jane.
