sunday morning...

We have had a busy Sunday morning! After breakfast Ben and I took Ike and Evangeline to chase the pregnant ewes to water as they had been shifted to a new paddock. We will have to take E to see some lambs too. There are a lot of natural salt lakes on our farm and rocky outcrops.
Then Annica, mum and I took the kids up to the Rock for a picnic morning tea....yummy fresh scones, homemade apricot jam and cream...then we went for a big walk around the rock. It was pretty windy but the view of the farm is great.Then when we got home mum took the kids down the bush to collect some kindling for the fire...I remember doing this as a kid too! They had tractors and bikes and trailers to load up! And Lucas (the cat) went along too. He is enjoying his stay on the farm!

The men are out putting the crop in since the rain last week...hopefully more rain is coming today or tomorrow. It is probably the most important time of the year for us. So we are cooking for 12 at the moment...but 3 of those are kids!

So not much happening in the scrapping department but plenty of photo opportunities! Anyway I hope you are all having happy Sundays - Lissy

I was wondering who was feeding Lucas! LOL
I loved visiting family on the farm as a kid and even as an adult, but I don't envy you cooking for so many.
Take Care.
