We’ve had some crazy weather around here lately. One moment it’s pouring rain, the next sunny and hot, and five minutes later so cold you hastily unpack every winter garment you own.
I find every change of weather interesting, but when I need a quiet sort of day, cloudy ones are my favorite.
Sometimes life on the farm gets so busy tackling fencing jobs, gardening, and caring for animals that you don’t get a chance to really enjoy what you’re working towards. So I’ve been trying to make time to enjoy our life here, time to sit in the grass and take it all in.
One afternoon last week while out on my walk, I stopped to take a breather and enjoy the view. Much to my astonishment five kangaroos hopped by in front of me! I only managed to capture two of them with my camera (they’re fast little buggers!), but how I love that little Joey.
Our goats are doing so well with full bellies and glossy fur, some of them already wearing their winter coats.
The little ones aren’t so little anymore, but they’re still cute and frisky climbing everything in sight (including our cars!). We check every day for new babies, but no kids yet.
Our four dogs – Apollo, Solar, Freja, and Luna – are outgrowing their puppy stages and turning into lovely, obedient, and affectionate dogs.
Apollo is our biggest Maremma, and he gets along so well with Luna, our little cattle-dog mix. I love watching them together.
They have the best time racing around the paddock together each day when Luna and I return from our walk in the bush.
I like cloudy days not just for the peace and quiet they bring, but also for the spectacular skies they make as the sun begins to set.
What things in your life do you like to take time to slow down and enjoy?
