Alert level 3 – day 3 – 30/04/2020

I worked a half day today. It still meant an early start, but surprisingly after achy muscles and the tiredness of last night, I felt pretty good. I was pretty keen to get back into the bush and try to get the elusive kiwi that needs her transmitter changed. Well …. I climbed and crawled….

Alert level 3 – day 2 – 29/4/20

I’m dog tired tonight! I’ve had a big day and I’m already in bed struggling to stay awake. Tonight I’m writing on my phone and it will be brief … mainly photos. It was pretty dark when I left for work this morning. There was a hint of pink over the Radiant Range. Mica was…

Alert Level 3 – Day 1 – 28/04/2020

What a difference a day makes! This morning I was dreaming of walking along a sandy beach in bare feet. The sand was squelching between my toes and the soles of my feet were being massaged with each step. The water was warm and gentle waves were lapping at my feet. I was wearing rolled…

Day 33 – 27/04/2020

It was raining when I got up this morning, not what I was expecting. I sat inside in the dry and made a pot of tea, not all that enthusiastic to go out! Bo was barking and then Petra started, I couldn’t really put it off any longer, so out I went. I left Holly’s…

Day 32 – 26/04/2020

What a cracker of a morning! Daylight emerged from the darkness, shaking off her dark cloak to reveal clear blue sky, the trees standing tall, sentries on guard to welcome in the new day. My steps were bouncy and full of energy as the dogs and I set off. There were lots of scents to…

Day 31 – 25/04/2020

Greeting to you, reader of my blog, on this ANZAC day. I heard today that it is 101 years since the first time Australian and New Zealand soldiers were called ANZACs. I respectfully acknowledge the amazing men and women who have gone to war and endeavored to make the world a better place. Thank you….

Day 30 – 24/04/2020

We had lovely morning, the promise of a good day. The dogs and I walked Holly down the hill and took her to the beehive paddock. The sheep have already eaten out the pick of the grass but plenty left for a horse! She had her head down and was eating happily as we left…

Day 29 – 23/04/2020

Today was grey and cloudy, but not too cold. Perfect for a good walk around our loop track. I fed Holly and set off to move her fence. It is her last break where she is and tomorrow I will need to put her in a fresh paddock. Laurie moved the sheep yesterday and they…

Day 28 – 22/04/2020

Today started off grey and overcast after a night of clear skies and bright stars. At least it was warm and for the second day running I didn’t need any wet weather gear. I did the same old! Wandered down the track with our dogs after giving Holly her nuts. She broke her cover the…

Day 27 – 21/04/2020

I had thought we might have had our first frost this morning. But no, just a heavy dew. It wasn’t too cold, just fresh as I headed off for my morning routine. You could tell it was going to be a nice day, with the promise of sunshine. It was such a relief not to…
