I was lucky enough to win this food net from Enchanted Moments in a giveaway.Thank you so much Suzanne, it is a lovely gift.
This will be put to good use on Christmas day because I think there will be plenty of flies buzzing around with the heat we are expecting.
I do hope the forecast is wrong.
We are meant to be having Christmas dinner out in the shed at my daughter and son in laws little farm. Their house is only a tiny two bedroom place with not much room, hence why we will be in the shed. Normally Christmas is held here but my daughter wanted to have it at her house this year. I should mention that our son in law is a refrigeration mechanic so he should be able to come up with something to keep us cool, I think he has an old air conditioning unit that can be used. The food will be another issue to keep cool, we will need lots of eskies and ice...
We have had some pretty sunsets lately.
I took these pictures last Thursday night.
This was the view to the south east, and a lovely pink colour.
Then the south west was this, a brilliant orange...
My hydrangea is putting on a good show of flowers this year.
Hurray for our solar panels,
at last we have received a credit on our bill...$12.41cr
We have had the panels about three years and this is our first credit.
In our house I have tried to cut back on things that use electricity .
This is what I have done differently over the past three months:
-Replaced two electric alarm clocks with small ticking alarm clocks.
-Replaced the two rechargeable telephones with the old original one that doesn't use electricity.
-Turned microwave and oven off at power point when not in use.
-Using a battery powered radio.
-No TV on during the day.
-Second fridge turned off.
-ALL power points except for fridge and freezers are turned OFF!
Our last bill was $182.82 so I am very well pleased :)I am glad to report that hubby and son are both doing well. Things are slowly getting back to normal for ds, he played his first game of soccer last Friday since the accident and managed the whole game with no ill effect. He no longer has headaches, so one would presume he has recovered really well, thank goodness. Only time will tell but so far, so good.
This may be my last post until after Christmas as it is getting a bit hectic here. No 2 daughter is arriving home tomorrow from Melbourne and I have plenty to organise before the big day on Saturday.
I would like to wish all my friends
A VERY HAPPY AND BLESSED CHRISTMAS
and I will see you all again soon!
