Life is jam-packed. Some exciting plans are on the horizon. We are preparing for spring and a possible escape to the beach before the hot weather arrives. There are busy times ahead on the farm and the school year is rushing by.
For me the best way to handle the hectic rhythm of life is to make time to get out and about. Fresh air and the wide open spaces help to reset the mind and remind me of everything I am grateful for.
I kept one eye firmly on the horizon while I quickly took this photo, waiting for the father emu to return to his sparse nest.
Sunrise through one of our apple trees. It was -4°C when I took this photo which is about as cold as it gets in our part of the world.
The lonely, parched skull of a feral pig resting in the red dirt.
Early morning olive tree shadows on the woolshed.
At a recent family engagement party most people rolled up to the community hall in utes and four wheel drives to join the celebration. One outback character and his lovely wife made an understated entrance in this big machine and nobody thought anything of it. Another reminder that we do live in a unique part of the world.
I hope you are getting out and about!
Happy Sunday to you.
