It’s cold and wet…

African sunset

It’s cold and wet , and I’m not feeling so hot today. Therefore I thought I’d take a look through the last couple of weeks photos from around our house. You may find them interesting.

Looking through a new sliding door which our son had put into the dining area, onto a patio which he had just built. A very handy son to have around the place!

We just discovered a patch of white ants in the kitchen floor. Another job for our son and fixed already.

He gets to do a lot – here trimming the tops of the Japanese Bamboo which had got to about 8 metres!

These two pups (about 7 months) are sisters from the same litter. I hadn’t realised that in dogs you can get multiple fathers at the one dropping. They love sleeping at my feet when I’m in my office! The mother was a German Shepherd. One part kelpie, the other 2 parts shepherd.

This dam leaked badly. Another job for the son with a friend, spreading polymer. This absorbs water and sinks taking fine mud particles with it. It seems to have worked but with the recent rains we’ll have to wait a while to be sure.

I am back to front, or maybe top to bottom, as this is a sunrise taken from the patio shown above. We live in a beautiful spot.

Hope you enjoy it
