Just a touch of dusting

Don’t panic it has nothing to do with housework. I love my home & appreciate what I have but who has time to dust & why???? If you saw the state of the animals when they come into the house & the humans as well, its like “really you dust haha”, oh dear some people are funny….


I know right how amazing does it look. You see I had to start here to show you the need for dusting. So this is the work in progress, the market garden & oh my, it looks amazing. So on contour the beds are laid out, Cuz measured width & worked out where to start & finish each bed. Where the paths are the soil is dug out down to the hard surface, basically as deep as the ripper went, the soil dug out is placed on top of the garden bed. Using a rake & level, each bed is raked removing all loose weeds(no chemicals or man-made fertilizers are allowed on our land) & leveled, the soil is amazing & we’ve got worms haha.. Such excitement. With all the levels, its steps, they are perfect for the giants who may visit us at some time, as long as they tread lightly..

See the little wagon with its precious load of sawdust….


A touch of dusting now that’s more like it if we could just run a pipe for about 5klms to the pipe that’s here at the cutest little sawmill ever that would be great. Of course we parked on the wrong side of it as far as the breeze was blowing that day, so it was like a sprinkling of fairy dust. On its own each spade-full wasn’t heavy at all, thank goodness as it took a few, but as a bulk collection the little trailer was a touch weighed down nothing too dramatic though.

Funnerer fun.


The second load was just as funnerer. The colours were amazing in the layers of dust.  This was the better side & we were having a laugh at what we would do if the little mountain collapsed, would have saved us a whole load of shoveling & if Cuz was buried (I would have driven off with his toes twinkling out the top & unloaded him when we got home.) That’s the thing I love about our family nothing is seen in a boring light, everything has a hilarious imagery attached to it…

The sawdust fills the paths between the garden beds, over time the dust will break down & become beautiful soil that can be put onto the garden if you like or not.20181009_094547.jpg

Well that’s it for now, so much has been going on I have much to tell you all, for now the giant steps have been started toward our dream of living.

Wait till you see my new toy….

Be well.
