Friday Night Home Alone

Hubby has been away working for a few days and I have been holding down the fort at home.

It is finally raining here and so far we have had over 30 mls of rain in 2 days.  The plants and animals are loving it and you can almost heat the ground sighing with relief.  We still had plenty of water left in our tanks, as there is just the two of us and we have bore water for the toilet and laundry, but a few of our neighbours have run out and had to buy water.
The beautiful rainy weather, I am sure the paddocks will green up nicely after this .
Our sad brown lawn.  It is green along the front as we have been watering the hedge.
But if we had not gotten this rain we would have been  walking on dirt.
So on this rainy Friday night at home on my own what will I be doing?
I will be curled up on the couch with a cup of Chai tea and reading the latest edition of Grass Roots Magazine that arrive in my mailbox today.  Then I will be getting some sour dough on the go for the weekend.
Home alone really is a bit of a luxury and not looking too bad at all?


  1. Sounds like a nice way to spend the night. I too am holding the fort here at the farm while my hubby is flooded in and stuck at Rockhampton. We have had nearly 550 mls of rain here over the last couple of days...very wet, good for the dams, creeks, water tanks etc, but I don't like my chances of getting in to town down our track! I have everything I need though, so just relaxing inside spending too much time on the computer... :)

  2. It seems strange that you are all having too much rain as my garden is still so thirsty and dry.
    I'm jealous of your GR magazine too. I usually borrow from the library, but someone beat me to the new copy! Perhaps a subscription may need to be on my wish list :)


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
Thanks for taking the time to comment
