What a busy couple of days.............
Yesterday was our last craft day, next fortnight we are having our Christmas breakup.
So it was a busy day of mad sewing all day,
and last night I got the hand sewing all done..........My first quilt is all finished and I
am so happy with it..
Sorry I can't show any photos until after Christmas as it is DIL Christmas pressie.
Today I have been in town all day doing the Christmas present shopping.
My feet are sore and my wallet is empty.........
I have only a few bits and pieces to get now.
The children finish school Friday and things will slow down then.
I hope every ones week is going to plan. We are getting more rain at the moment which is a blessing.
Have a great day.....

This is our front paddock or as we like to call it now the bird habitat lol.
This has our front fence under it. I hope the cows don't realize the electric fence isn't working.
Let me explain the photo below,
The car with branches on it is the handy mans car. As you can see he was collecting the dead branches from the yard. He got bogged in the mud...
Hubby goes to the rescue after calling him a few names and explaining that the ground is to wet for driving on.
Middle car......hubby bogged.....ha..ha...ha O.K you had to be there but the look of disbelief on his face was priceless.
First car.........No idea ,total stranger out for a look at the floods. He managed to pull them both out without getting bogged.
Thank you random stranger.............
I hope every one enjoys there week end. We have a party tomorrow afternoon.Friends are
redoing there wedding vows, so it should be a good time.
Blessings to all

The photos are of the different day Lilie's I have in the garden, that I said last week I would show you. Bit late, though.
This is the first year I have had alot of them in.
The double yellow below is an old one. Also the dark red one.
As they mostly have come from the markets I don't have the names of any of them.
I find day lillies are very drought tolerant, I never water them at all!
Once they start to grow they divide well and flower within 12 mths.

The snow peas cucumbers and tomatoes are all doing well. I have been picking alot of tomatoes
Monday, November 10, 2008
The snow peas and cucumbers are doing so well. This area is shaded in the after noon so doesn't get that hot afternoon sun on it.
I also found some "Ox heart" tomatoes and got them planted out. I remember reading somewhere that you should have 3 tomato bushes planted
Put in some more "Mignonette lettuce" a well, I can't keep the Lettuce up to us. I have only been planting a punnet a week and have now decided to plant 2 a week.
We only have two puppies left, the one on the ground getting her ear chewed is "pirate" we are keeping her. This is Hubbys dog, he chose her and named her.
