While Nick and his trusting PA (pet assistant) Jaffa toil away…
Brett and Rambaud helped our Sistas prepare their hen house for new chooks. They seemed quite happy with their snake-proofed chook house which also sports an enlarged roost, viewing window, extra ventilation, auto-waterer and many other chicken comfort features!
While the evening sunsets have been fantastic — the early morning fog has been great too. The grass is drying due to incredibly hot and sunny days yet the abundant morning fog is keeping things fairly green.
The skies seem like platinum and silver with numerous shades of light, colour, and textures interplaying… what a beautiful time of year!
Nick and I seldom leave the property for much time together so a trip to Brisbane for a friend’s birthday party and catching up with a few others as we drove along the gorgeous Sunshine Coast was a great mini-holiday!
Jaffa enjoyed a sleep-over with his best mate Andy at our Sistas’… and our helper Rambaud from France watched over our place…
Nick and I enjoyed markets, musicians, antique trucks, and even some beach time.
Juzzie Smith, a Byron Bay based street performing musician, sings while playing several instruments at a time… quite skilful and his tunes eclectic – highly recommended! Check out a music video at the end of this post…
We caught up with our friends Ken and Maria and enjoyed a feast prepared by her celebrity chef Mother (thanks again!) After an hour or so we could not help ourselves and enjoyed a splash and play in their pool.
It may be end of year but there is plenty to do! Nick and Jaffa dug the large Johnson Grass from around the frangipani orchard. Okay… Jaffa really was just a watch dog!
When there are breaks between projects — there is always cleaning up after the chooks.
Though there is always much to do when building and operating a working homestead — at the end of each day we take time to enjoy the season — and every day is special in it’s own way… the joy today was a majestic sunset!
