This is the sight I woke up to this morning, a purple front yard, isn't it so pretty. Last night we got 40mls of rain !!!!! We sure do need it as my tank was just about empty again and we are very water wise here..I have neighbors that have been buying water for months now. The rain was so heavy that the gutters were running over. This afternoon Robbie and I have o get on the roof to clean all the gutters out as the jacaranda flowers taint the water and we are for cast to get some more.
Meet the newest member of the family, Mindy. This is Williams kitten she is only 6 weeks old and so tiny and playful.
First I have to pull the carpet up in the office here...Look at the stains on it. This is the last room left to do, all right I won't do it Know but guess what I'm doing on Saturday????

It's not just sewing that hasn't been getting done...The garden is pretty sad as well.
Don't be fooled by this green, this is kept green by the washing machine water..The flowers are on there way out and are past there best...I am certainly seeing what is hardy and what isn't. Some of my favorites are roses, saliva's and geraniums.They don't need much watering at all and are all doing well.

Well it wasn't really my idea.....it was Bronwyns, and I must say for once she had a good idea..We went down on the local school bus agggggghhhhh...To say the children were loud is an understatement....
We went to Mooloolaba around to the point..The water was so blue and calm. We set up in a park right there on the beach and had a picnic for lunch.
Plenty of food and we all ate to much of course..Then after lunch Bronwyn and I went for a walk while her husband Dave kept watch over every-thing..We did get our feet wet but that was all..It was nice just to walk and talk.

Alanah, Chloe and Damion cooked tea for me...fettuccine, they did a lovely job...Chloe made a caramel mud cake for me. See the number candles yep it says 32 ha ha they thought that was funny........hmmmmm what was I doing 12 years ago, I was pregnant with baby No 6.....Yes well enough said about that.
The tomatoes are looking well, so far the wind hasn't damaged them...Yesterday we had 2 hail storms within an hour of each other thankfully the tomatoes weren't damaged.
Here is Handy Andy working on the tractor....update!!!!, it has been sold, but they said we can keep it for 2 weeks to finish the work we started, I think that is very nice of them. So Andy is getting stuck into the work for me, I will keep you updated.

The fog was just rolling in, normally we don't get fog this thick as we are low in the valley here..After I took these photos it got even thicker, I never realized how pretty fog could be... Well the bed rooms are finally finished, the beds have been changed around and all looks much better. I do have to mention that I got in trouble from Alanah for the photo of her, but it was funny.....Sorry Alanah.....no really I am .....kinda....
Rooms are not the only thing getting a change...Awhile back I mentioned how I wanted to get the back yard tidied up after the Septic drama...Well things are under way..Handy Andy and yes his name is Andy and he is my Handy man, has staked out all the areas and is busy with the tractor grading ...But would you believe it on Friday I had a phone call asking if I wanted to sell the big tractor...Greg had 2, the big one and the little tractor....I know I don't need them both and honestly I probably don't need any....but I hadn't really thought much about selling them...Any way by Saturday after noon I had 2 people wanting to by the big one and one fellow wants the bobcat as well.... I told him we will need it for a couple of weeks before it can go as we are using the tractor....I will hear from the first fellow this evening...
Needless to say we have had to move forward all the work we wanted to do with the grader blade...so it is a hive of activity and dust here..Will post some photos latter in the week. I will also be getting my new vege garden at the side. Where it is I have out grown...So as you can see I am busy, there is much to do in the garden as the weeds are growing faster than anything...
The workshop is doing well, and I am really enjoying being there, Oh I miss being home and my gardening, but as the days get longer there is more time to be out in the garden in the afternoon.. I finish work at 3p.m and get the children from school so I have a hour to spend in the garden before getting tea ready.

Now as you have probably realized I am the kind of person that when I clean I also rearrange the furniture..yes even outside...All my outdoor plants where looking very tired so I planted them in the garden and got a heap of new ones..Brought this little table and chairs up from the courtyard added some cushions and we now have lunch out here.....
What did you get up to on the week end????
Tomorrow I am of to the work shop...I have worked out how to juggle things...Tuesday,Wednesday and Thursdays will be spent at the workshop...Friday, Saturday,Sunday and Monday will be at home...This seems to be the way I will go. The people that was looking at buying the business has decided not to...That is fine, I am not worried as I know that it is all in Gods hands, he can see the big picture I can't...
Blessings to all
