so now I have got my thinking cap on really hard for the next challenge!
So yeah we are having the most amazing summer this year.........like to the point we are almost our of water again!! And if we don't get anymore rain we will have to dry the cows off..........thats not good as normally we milk right through to mid May. Prayers, thoughts + finger + toe crossing is really good atm for us to get some rain please!! And not just us............there are far worse off places than us in NZ atm!! Feel super sorry for the dry stock farmers down South!
I hope all you townies are being good with your use of water?? Fixing those leaks, running water when needed, having super low pressure showers to the point its almost like a dribble + you feel like you are back flating (yep thats us atm) + only using your washing machine when you have a full load.
Even though its a pain in the bum having to limit our water use (yes atm we are only flushing when we really need to) its doing our kids the world of good - we talk about ppl in Africa (or like the Lion on the Telecom ads says Afreeca) + even other countries that have no water supplies that have to walk up to 2hrs to get water + then back again.............and sometimes children the same age as Finn (7yrs) have to do this job. Finn's comment to this was "and I wouldn't be allowed to spill a drop as its too precious"!! He didn't like the idea that you would have to carry it on your head as well in a big container. Love these converstations with the kids.
WOW! So who noticed the Easter Buns for sale in the supermarket like 3 weeks ago?? I've being buying them every week as Finn loves them. But it just seems crazy to be sold only like 4 weeks after xmas. Easter is way early this year!!
So a couple of weeks ago we spent the afternoon at one of the beaches in New Plymouth at the rock pools. We have amazing rocks pools here + they run for miles!! And I took this awesome photo of a kina (sea urchin) that kev found (he put it back). Have you tasted them? I have + yuck!! Its like eating a mouthful of salt..........but then again I'm not a huge seafood eater!!
I've been meaning to upload some of Ruby's LO's. In the last half of last year Ruby finally realised she could scrap with photos. She has being scrapbooking since she was 3.5yrs but she only did collage style with pattern paper + embellishments. I always asked her did she want to use a photo...........always got a no. So this is about the 3rd LO she has done so far.........pretty cute eh?? I just love she just does it + doesn't over think + knows how she wants it!! Will admit in this LO the scallops were already pre cut for a class that I taught at SENZ last year. I love how she put the swirls on her letters like that!!
And what about the NZ Dares..........checked them out of late?? I'll be adding mine later today!!
Well I got a fantastic kit yesterday that needs some dealing done to it!!
Enjoy the weekend! :)
