over here we are…



.. walking around Mum and Dad's place, notebook in one hand, camera in other.

.. talking about dogs, looking up rescue shelters, weighing up options. Trying to contain my excitement when Adam says "it was you who wanted to wait! I reckon we can use that metal cubby house as a kennel!" (Don't tell the smallies yet, OK?!)

.. baking another loaf of sourdough. Understanding this is probably the beginning of a long term obsession. Making a second sourdough starter while trying to get the acetone smell out of the first. Trying to get the loaf PERFECT before I blog it. One more. Will post on the weekend. 

.. letting the chooks out in the afternoon only, listening for any panicked squawking, freaking out when the geese start honking like crazy and come flying over the fence, they've never flown anywhere, where is that damn fox?! Everyone present and accounted for today. 

.. admiring an inspired treehouse which has gone up at a friend's down the road. 

.. feeling grateful for the simplicity, the sociability and regenerativeness of tea.  



Hope things over your way are bright and that you too are a tea drinker.

What breed of dog are you looking for?

I am English therefore I drink tea in copious amounts. Whilst always best from a pot, preferably with a cosy it also rather nice to drink outdoors. I have termed a coin for drinking tea whilst out in my tinny. We call it “thermos drifting”. You find a nice spot up the river, cut the engine, crack open the thermos and the cake tin and drink in the scene as you drift along. Perfect antidote to stress.

fennel & lemon tea at the moment for a sore tummy!

We are getting a puppy in October – am unreasonably excited about it. We are getting another border collie – couldn’t do another breed after Amy.

We looked up Maremmas, we’re also just scouting the RSPCA. I once had a very very beloved Alaskan Malamute cross so I tend to linger on huskies, but we’re thinking border collie – predicable, good with kids, usually good with chooks. Ideally not a baby pup, hoping for something cheaper! Your thoughts?

Oh my goodness I want to go thermos drifting this second!!

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness!!
I am not a tea drinker but wow!! Me and my farmer boy looked at that post you sent and then one more and more and more and wow!!! You certainly have relanded in a magnifiscent spot.
We’ll come and visit for sure.
And we are Maremma obsessed. We had four, then one had 6 puppies, then we sold three and so now we have 7. They live with the chookens and we have never lost one to a fox since they’ve arrived. And we live on Foxs lane. x

Right. I think that might be the deciding vote then. We have a Maremma down the road here who lives with the goats. What a cool dog. xxx
