Amos, sleeping peacefully in the sun porch. The slate floor warms up nicely.
YAY!!!! My 200th post!
Thanks for your support... I cant believe Ive got here :)

Spent the start of the school hols visiting a friends farm out of town. Its been so nice to get away and do things that are different! The wind was very brisk, and its caused a few sore ears but we can deal with those.  I even had orders for more woolly hats :) There is so much to do and see, and we are  fortunate we can come out again real soon thanks to Anna.. We have big plans for her garden ...
Amos is a sweetheart, we loved being with him. He has two fur-brothers  too - big white cats, brothers called Harley and Riley... Mr 12 has made friends with a horse or 12, and  Miss A is getting very good at bottle feeding the calves... Gord found himself a pile of goldfish to protect, and is about to catch some eels. He is having a most successful week, he caught us a salmon yesterday, so dinner was delish!!!

Being back in town was a bit of an anticlimax. We are missing the peacefulness. The mooing of the calves, the smell (ughhhh!!!) of baleage. No, sorry, dont miss that! Ya cant make me! :)
It has been beautiful weather though and weve made the best of it. I have thirty tomatoes in their pots as of today, and a dozen more berry bushes organized into theirs. Roll on market day!
Spent the afternoon chatting to a dear friend about sage gargle for sore throats, making soap and munching on black currant muffins smothered in Honey yoghurt. All natural. Yum! We have a recipe for more soap that just might end up in Christmas parcels.... Almost finished the christmas shopping even!!! uhhhhhh so organized at the moment, it amazes me.

Am off tomorrow in search of  some Honey from the farm. Activated Manuka. Awesome Goodness.
Hope youre in good spirits, this weather is awesome for us Gardeners, us Caregivers,  and  those of us who just dislike the long winter days.

Love to you
