Fall Happenings on an Australian Goat Farm

Life’s been busy here on our goat farm with babies growing and mamas about to give birth any minute.

It’s hard to believe that only 10 months ago Felix and Gus were gangly little boys and now they’re almost men.

We’ve had a lot of company recently and that’s been great fun! We love sitting on the back porch with good friends, eating food and talking for hours.

I (Krista) have been taking a lot of walks on these gorgeous Autumn days. Our dogs Luna and Fletcher love going for gallops through the tall grasses, startling kangaroos and having the time of their lives.

I love all the interesting flowers and fruits here in Australia. So very different from my native Canada. And I can’t get over these long, warm days. So different from the snow and ice I’d normally be seeing if I were back in British Columbia or Washington State.

I’ve been in a baking sort of mood, churning out crusty loaves of bread and beautifully browned pies stuffed with caramelized fruit. I love how good the house smells after such ventures AND how gorgeous the baked goods look cooling in the glow of late afternoon sunshine.

This weekend I’m off to Brisbane to learn cheese-making from my dear friend Ann from thisANNthat. We’re so excited about our trip, mostly because we also get to visit my dear friend Barbara from Winos and Foodies. I love Girls Days Out.

What are you looking forward to this weekend?
