Sscs ornament.....

My Secret Santa Christmas Swap (SSCS) arrived in the mail all the way from Germany...............its always terribly exciting when your parcel arrives...........and mine arrived in two separate boxes............
Dagmar @ Quilts and More sent to me...........
Look at this gorgeous ornament...........
sorry not the best photo but it kept spinning around and the mozzies were biting me..........this is the best of the pics.........
no decorations out here yet.........with life a little overwhelming its difficult to get into the Christmas mood...........but what a burst of joy this little parcel brought............
now i'll keep my main present safe and there are a couple of extra parcels in the box...........thankyou so much Dagmar............
Catch you later.....

No more sheep bogged in dams

Remember my post last weekend.............
The next day we had 7 stuck in the dam............yes sheep are dumb........one walks in others follow..........
this time I didn't need to go into the dam.........I had help...........
they were a bit deeper in then me............and they were still not touching the bottom...........shame we didn't get the desilting finished.............
Problem solved this weekend.............
no sheep will get bogged this summer thank goodness...........
Catch you later......

1900........

I have bits of a post written in my head........none of it flows together at the moment.........so I will save it for another day...........
1900 posts later i'm still never sure what will end up written in a post until I start typing.........and since  it is a big milestone I was trying to find a special pic............can't decide what photo to choose so I went with this one which is an old favourite...........it's been the background for my phone screen for years............
onto the next 100 posts............
Catch you later................
