new life................

The last 3 months is a period in my life I would prefer to forget........but then again you learn from every situation in life.......I am sure I will be stronger from it............but it's not just the drought although that has been the biggest issue it sure has not assisted with other areas of my life...............and while I would not say the drought is over things sure are looking more positive than they have for the last year or more...........
So onward and upward I say with a few more changes in my life........
with rain I will spring back to life just like the earth does................
(a photo from 2007)
Things have been so chaotic and miserable here I even missed my blog birthday.......this is what I posted on my birthday and I didn't even give my blog birthday a thought.........that was back in February.........7 years OMG can you believe it 7 years I have been blogging here in this little spot in the cyber world.......the things I have learnt, tried, seen sure has been encouraging and inspiring especially when you don't belong to a sewing group......... friendships formed from all over the world............one day I may get over the ocean and meet some of you for now it's just the girls in Oz I get to see.............another upside of blogging is always finding someone online no matter what time of the day someone is online doing something in my part of the cyber world and it doesn't cost me trips to town to meet up, you don't care whether I am in my daggy work clothes or pj's, thankyou for your support and encouragement over the last few months actually the last 7 years...........it is very much appreciated..............hopefully now I can get all the things on track that have been neglected over the last 3-6months.............slowly and surely I will get there............now to prepare some more GDITC posts............and wait for the cooler autumn days to arrive......I hope this is the last day of 30deg...even the nights have only got down to about 18deg.........still very mild...........but sunny days like these sure will help the grasses grow.............
.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........

  1. And a wonderful 7 years it has been! Glad you received a little rain...enough to get some grass to grow at least. Looking forward to the next 7 years! :)

  18. Thank you for the seven years. I've also met a lot of people thanks to you. Yours was one of the blogs that got me wanting to try this for myself so even though you (we all) have ups and downs you still set an example I'm grateful for.

  19. Happy belated blog birthday. If it's any consolation, I have totally neglected my blog birthday as well. Wanna start a club! lol There are so many positives to the internet and one of them is meeting wonderful people like you (and my friend Cheryl - ok I met her on a news group, way before blogging). Life sometimes gets in the way, and soon (sometimes not soon enough) it starts to clear and the light starts to shine in. So glad to read that things are more positive. Do let me know if there's anything I can do. I think of you often! Keep well my friend! Hugs! xox

  37. Life sure does send us challenges, doesn't it. I am so glad that you are finally getting rain. I live in Washington State, in the Northwest of the US and would gladly share some of our rain with you. By the time summer comes we feel like we are rusted!

    I enjoy reading your blog in the mornings as I try to wake up and start my day. Thank You for sharing.

  38. I really admire your honesty and courage in writing your blog. We are also on a farm but I still enjoy your posts about farm life. I think you give a genuine insight into life on the farm and always like to check in on how you are going. OK I am one of those stalkers. I have tried to start a blog a couple of times but struggle to bare my soul. Take care. Marcelle
