progress............

I wasn't much fun for Maree to chat to this morning as I was a little ho hum with everything happening weather wise...........she was yesterday - today I was..........anyway the day improved greatly.......
...worked on various projects in between doing some washing and ironing..........trying to tidy the house so we can get up the xmas tree.............that is the bribery anyway...........slowly working at it.........we have plenty of time with this wet weather..........1/2 an inch of rain during the night but nothing today.........some sun so I got into the curtains in my room and washed them too..........
the kids played out in the water heaps............they are gone for ages then come back with exciting finds.............we have lots of water running around the house across paddocks and  in drains etc..........
this is a tiny yabbie Bookworm found today............actually  this one is big compared to a couple of others........this one is less the 2cm and another one he showed me was not much more then 1cm.............I have no idea how he even sees them in the water to start with.............even Fairy Girl was back out in the water today...........learning all her brothers tricks........precious life experiences in nature............coming back in with soaking wet clothes.........they have walked km's today with no shoes..........such little bush kids..............

but this afternoon we went to the neighbours on the 4 wheel motor bike......(the kids walked thru water all the way)........the road still has lots of water over it.....so the 4 wheeler is the go.....anyway I traced this stitchery off and took it with me and got he whole thing done while enjoying a bottle of wine............another stitchery for A Gardener's Journal that I have lost the plot on but I have a deadline so I HAVE to get it done...............

Catch you later..............

  1. Chooky, at least you are still working on your GJ blocks, it would be so easy to just forget it eh?
    I wish we had your rain. We live on the wetest coast of NZ yet our water tanks are just about empty and we will soon have to buy in water! Bring on the rain I say ; ))

  2. That is the smallest yabbie I have ever seen! Actually, I haven't seen one for years. Sounds like a pretty good day.

  10. The kids will hold memories of these days forever...can't beat learning "on the ground" so to speak...the weather is all over the place at the moment - we are getting fine mornings with afternoon thunder storms. Almost tropical - the weekend is going to be 35 - very steamy after all the rain. Love that you got on the 4 wheeler and went visiting! at least you haven't run out of wine - I don't think my stitchery would be as neat if I drank while I was stitching LOL

  11. Oh gosh! So cute!!!! Y6ou should totally let the kids keep one as a pet, they're excellent little pets! It's been raining constantly here for the past 2 weeks and today it's heavier than ever! everything is flooding and I'm going to have mozzies to look forward to once it all stops. Just fabulous. I've already had ross river fever and cytomegalo virus. Not to mention the countless scars I have from mozzies past... do you get them bad after the rain?
