I am sorry to not have been around here a lot lately. As much as I would love to blog on a regular basis, my motivation has waned. With my mum dying and helping to care for her for the seven months from diagnosis, it has taken a toll on me.
I have good and bad days, lately mostly bad. But the better days are starting to re appear. Today is one of those days.
There is so much going on here on our little place of dirt. Spring has been slow to emerge but the last week or so we are getting more hot days. Thursday was a terrible spring day, it blew a hot wind from the north and we have a couple of fallen trees and branches as well as stone fruit that were hurled to the ground. The last of my mulberries were instantly dried on the trees that's if they weren't blown into oblivion. It was such a shocker of a day. The day before, I had done some spring cleaning outside, washing things down and sweeping up dirt and leaves and it was looking quite neat and tidy. But now I have to do it all again because everything is covered in red dirt. And the worst thing of all, we didn't get much rain, just 2.5mm.
Yesterday I caught up on laundry. I toddled outside for a looksee at any damage from the wind from Thursday. The good news is that my veggie patch is relatively unscathed. So that is a huge relief.
I have a lot of photos to share that I have been taking in the hope that I would feel like doing a blog post. Well today that happened.
We had a new bigger rain water tank installed when the old one developed a leak. We have about 28,000gallons of storage now.
