Home at My Farm

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” ~Β Albert Einstein

 

I’m home, at our beautiful farm. The dogs and I have just gone for a ramble to check on the cows, and to see if we could spy the platypus down in the river.

There are branches down everywhere after the tail end of Tropical Cyclone Marcia, and the house is musty and damp after so much rain. But today the sky is full of sunshine, my windows are flung wide, and everything is slowly drying out again.

It’s hard to explain how full my heart feels when I’m here. How the green hills cradle me, and the cry of the black cockatoos comforts me, and the endless birdsong soothes me and strips away my worries.

I’ll make a pot of tea now, and sit down at the kitchen table to do some writing before breakfast. This morning we’re going down to the shed to hunt up some petrified wood from the tonnes of rocks and crystals I have in storage there. And then writing again after lunch.

Not much more perfect than a writing day, crystal time, and then late this afternoon a walk on the beach and fish and chips for dinner!

Hooray for being home. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you! It’s so good to be here. And now I have my entire kitchen table covered in book editing, index cards and notebooks, the sun is shining and the dogs are muddy, so it’s all good! (((HUGS))) Much love to you xx

  1. What a wonderful post to read before the start of a hectic day. I could imagine the grass under my feet as I read, the sound of the cockatoos overhead. A beautiful world to live in Nicole away from the concrete jungle. How stunning the photo of your butterfly is (oh my were the words I uttered when I saw it – just about took my breath away with all its majestic glory) Enjoy that pot of tea before you begin your busy day. Sending love to you all xx

  2. Oooh can I come too πŸ™‚ gardens, crystals, walk on the beach = perfect ! Beautiful butterfly on your Pentas. We have had a pale blue one in the garden but quite different patterning, this guy’s big and bold. I’ll have a feather if the cockatoos gift you any. They have such a specific call, I remember them from living in Perth. Have a beautiful day xxx <3

  3. I am three days late because I went back to visit a friend …the visit was lovely but I agree there is nothing like home …the coast , the lambs in the field and of course my Hubby and Oscar my dog . Yours looks like a dream enjoy .
