House weekend......

Nice to have a weekend at home.........just working around the house............
Inside and outside jobs.............but within walking distance...........
We got some rain during the week...............won't really make any difference unless we get more very soon and that forecast just completely disappeared..........
Last Sunday 40mls was forecast for this last week..........most around here were lucky if they got 10mm...........some even started sowing some crops........everyone is so desperate..........10mm won't do anything really...........we are sooooooo dry.............
to put it into perspective..........and every area has different rain fall needs.......we have an annual rain fall of about 21.5inchs. (12 months)
For 20 months we are only up to 14inchs.........so for not too far off 2 years we don't have any where near one years rain even yet...........
We just need to be more resilient according to the government..........i can tell you if we weren't resilient we wouldn't still be here......stupid govt........

I managed to get some pics of Big Loves babies............

Thankgoodness she is still managing to feed both of them..............mind you we are still feeding her heaps.............
Big Love loves her buckets of feed............
in the tray is oats and cotton seed..........
Some more groceries arrived yesterday..........only 1/2 the load..........someone else was desperate so I will get more next week........at least I know it is coming.........
Not sure what will happen once this is gone.........its getting more expensive and this came from Victoria..........the freight is a killer........

Sunset yesterday.............Actually feels like we achieved something this weekend............something progressive.......while it was demolishing yards it's still good to do something other then exist......or feeding...........

I received a little care package a few weeks ago and I was looking in it again this weekend and found the hot pink nail polish............I needed a feel good moment so i painted my nails.................lots of funny comments from the family while working...........lol...........But it was a great boost for the weekend............sometimes it's the little things that show people still care that count.......don't ever forget how powerful one little action or word can be for someone............
not sure when I will be back.........sewing is non existent and I think your sick of the farm posts.............
Take care...........
Catch you later.......
