When a cow.....

Just how many people can say that a stray cow came up their driveway but I can.  Yes this cow wandered up our 1/2 km long driveway a couple of weekend ago.






She had walked 1.5 km down the road looking for her calf.  The class I teach on Thursdays just loved hearing the story about he cow with horns that visited their Thursday teacher.

Just thought I would have a play with the functions on my SLR camera last weekend and this is what I was trying to achieve.

Stairs at last.

We have spent most of this winter just gone without stair that lead from our garage onto the deck that leads to indoors.  Now that the weather is warming up we have finally decided what to do with regard to stars and a wrap around custom made stairs are the plan.  We have googled it (yup thats right), found the you tube video that was similar and my DH set to it.  We are novices when it comes to building.  Everything we know we have taught ourselves.

While I am busy at work my stairs get slowly cut and prepared for assembly.  The weekend arrives and the one child in my house who will never have the capacity to hold down any job (due to his disabilities), is the only one keen to help.  With his battery powered tools and a keen eye he imitates the job.  I just love the intensity at which he is observing the work at hand.




When the deck is painted I will post a photo.

My husband job takes him all around the world.  The other day he was flying over an active volcano in Iceland and got this photo.  I just had to share it this week.

The End of One Journey

In about 6 weeks time one of life's journeys will come to an end in our house.  My baby  (yes he is the youngest of my children) will finally leave primary school and  enter the next part of his educational journey. 

Today we were off to get his uniform for next year.  He was busy smiling broadly the whole and I was busy checking to make sure that the uniform was going be big and will  last many years while him being able to hold it up.



I am so excited for him and the opportunities that will come his way as the journey from Year 7 through to Year 13 begins next year.

Wordless Wednesday 29 October

Just a weed at the side of the road as I walked.



It really is not that red but I like how it looks just as I have tweaked it.
