little steps

im sorry you are in a small cage right now. im workiing on it.....
5 little ducks went out one day......

veda is becoming a strawberry farmer. here are her first cuttings from the strawberry jungle around the corner.

too much stuff.

delightful.


im sure somebody has pressed fast forward... the days and weeks are flying past before my eyes. the kids are growing upwards. veda is almost as tall as me. how did that happen?
beautiful autumn days are here. that chill in the air as you move and the warmth of the sun if you sit still. i heard on the radio the other day how calcium deficiency is often caused by not enough sunshine on your body. the sun making vitamin D which helps calcium absorption. me and abc radio are companions these days. i like the randomness of the conversations i might drop in on whenever i have to get back in my car to go anywhere- which is a pain in itself.
we are taking little steps down the road we want to travel. mothers day weekend was a lot of fun. on the saturday i drove my farmer boys ute, with my mum, to a clearing sale of antiques and collectables. i learnt that if they advertise it as that, people there are willing to pay ridiculous prices....well probably not ridiculous compared to buying new made in china rubbish....anyway. it was fun. and then sunday my sweetheart gave me a kiwi fruit and blueberry plant and the kids smothered me in their sweet love, and somehow they managed to squabble with each other more than usual for a lot of the day....rascals. we went to the farmers market and came home with 6 chookens AND 5 ducklings. cool fun. they have already layed us some eggs. how nice of them heehehe....
oh jeepers im out of time....its 8.08am and the kids wont get ready for school while im sitting here typing maniacally?? is that a word?
if you dont know tinderbox products...go gooogle them....they smell so delicious....and im really loving keri smiths wishjar blog again. i love her.
and i have new music to listen to, angus and julia stones newer album and a new buddha bar album..
okay ive really gotta go cook some toast.... talk soon :-) xo
