+ We have had the last flush of warm weather over the last week – gorgeous, balmy days. Country Boy has been planting seeds and filling the green house to get seedlings growing before it gets too cold. Our corn has finished now, and the pigs have enjoyed the stalks. The tomatoes and zucchinis are slowing down, though we still get a kilogram every other day. Once we get a frost, the rest of the plants will die, and it will be time to clear the garden, and start planting all over again.
+ The green house is also full of small trees, ready to be planted out in the winter. All the acorns we collected last Autumn, are now small oak trees. Country Boy planted trees all over the farm with his grandfather, and loves looking at the big trees now and remembering when he planted them. They are like a living monument to his family.
+ I’m not much of a follower of celebrity gossip (I find it hard to keep up with the village gossip!), but I read this article where Ben Affleck thanked his wife for working hard on their marriage, and it caused a whole lot of speculation that their marriage was ‘in trouble’. We are fed the line that marriage should be all romance, and sweet nothings, and if you have to make an effort, well then something is wrong. The truth is all relationships are hard work, but there is nothing wrong with working hard. Country Boy and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary this week. We continue to work hard on our relationship because it is worth the effort. I love to read articles that affirm this truth!
+ Today is the last day of the school term, and boy are we ready for holidays. Meg has survived her first term at school very well, and is loving learning to read, and write. She comes home and tells me all sorts of facts about Japan, and has started home readers for homework, both of which she is very proud of.
+ We are spending the holidays at home. We have friends coming to stay for a couple of days, and need to go over to Canberra for some shopping on one day. Other than that, lots of time spent at home, just relaxing, not doing much. Hopefully some cooking, and creating, and lots of taking photos!
Happy Friday Everyone!!
