Holiday Update...

I have been on Holidays, which means a holiday from blogging as well.

We drove up to Charters Towers to celebrate a 61st birthdays.
David and Karen turn 30 and Mason 1 that's 61.

We all had lots of  fun while there.
Water skiing and tubing.

The boys got some fishing in.

We even got a feed of fresh fish one night.

Jessica,Lock and girls drove up,Chloe, Damien and Harry flew up.
Bruce, Robbie, William and myself drove up there for 10 days.

Not all together but those of us that was able to make had a great time catching up.

Easter Sunday brought the Easter eggs and lots of smiles.

David and Karen put on a breakfast for all those that came up for the party...

Most of us enjoyed our breakfast, but there where those that ....
well lets say they had a headache and stomach bug.....

Easter Monday saw us head home via Jessica's where we picked Alanah up from her 2 week shift at Roma.

We got home in time for William to be in our local Anzac March.

I enjoy holidays, but more so when surrounded by my children and grandchildren.
Thank you David, Karen and Mason for a great Easter break.....

Living a simple life......

Every day I give thanks that I can now stay at home and look
after my family...
To have the time to cook good wholesome meals that my family enjoy.

To be able to potter in my green house raising seeds,
taking cuttings for friends and family.

 To plant those seedlings in the vege garden and then harvest them for meals.

Yes I am enjoying living my simple yet fulfilling life. Life is defiantly being lived at a slower pace here, one 
that I know this family is enjoying.

We are all kept busy working on and around our farm though.
Bruce and the boys have been very busy building fences to keep the new cattle in.
We now have 4 different paddocks to keep the cattle and sheep in.

I love walking out the back to see happy cattle grazing and all that fire danger being eaten down.

New fruit trees have also been fenced off, I have planted more mangoes, citrus and a Pomegranate, this will be my new food forest and eventually the chooks will be moved out here.

I still do the  bookwork for our business, and sometimes blogging..haah

But when I'm finished doing bookwork I can walk outside and pick some fruit, or do some gardening.
Yes my life is Simple happy and yet very busy.

There are now so many blogs out there that share there lives as they live a more simple fulfilling life.
I think more and more people are trying to reclaim there lives by getting back to the basics..
What do you think???
