Bits and more bits

I have been a bit on the lazy side lately, no posts much and I haven't keep up with my reading on the blog the day time weather has been wonderful coolish winter days with lots of warm sunshine, well that's all over now it's freezing even when the sun is shining,  so I'm inside with the heater on drinking hot coffee.
We did cut down the dead pine tree in the back yard and it's been dead for a while so it's been burning in our fire place smells lovely next cool dry day I will burn all the little bits in the back yard burner.

Some good size logs here.

And lots of rubbish.
My son was down for a week and a bit so that ment a trip to Bunnings so I got some more gravel,

and these little fellows were a dollar each so I got three.
The fairy garden was moved under the tree's nothing grows there and I lost a gobblin when wood cutting so it's safer here.

New cleaner and the old one works now I've cleaned out all the filters so now I've got two.

When my daughter in law came down we went out dinner in Parramatta.
so of course they has to pull faces
I tried twice BUT it didn't work.

Lots of buildings going up, there are four cranes in this very small area but you can only see two, how they move anything without banging into each other is anyones guess.

And a giant white rabbit in the park not sure what this is about but just too cold to cross the street to find out.

My daughter in law saying hello to the twins.
Drummy has really slowed down in the laying dept so the beer fairy wrote her name on the last one so she would get a drummy egg for breakfast.
My son was down to replace all the wood around the windows in the house at Rosehill and paint outside so he was pretty busy.



So he took a couple of pictures of the process.

    1. Why don't you want your red mushrooms is it because you don't have a fairy garden.

  8. Lots of lovely things to see here. Nice to know the old pine is warming you now in winter, just as it once shaded you in summers. I'm spending a lot of time by the heater now too.

    1. This winter seems a lot colder to me not sure if it's because I'm older or the hot flushes have stopped or it is colder.

  10. The cement floors are not fun but a lot of them have coffee shops but you have to look for them.

  11. Merle, you have a wonderful son doing things around the house for you. Your fairy garden is delightful, and I love those gnomes. I've been wanting to get one for myself. wow, the giant white rabbit - I wonder what he is doing there?

    I always enjoy seeing what's going on around your place. It's cold where you are, and very hot here. Do you want to trade for awhile? :~)

    Have a good rest of the week, Merle.

    1. The house he is working on is his house, he has done it all up himself, he does help me with bits and pieces.
      I have no idea what the rabbit was for but maybe something to do with school holidays .
      Yes it would be nice to swap for a while I not great in the cold but then again when it's to hot that's not good.

    1. Seen reports on your weather, it looks very cold, It's cold here too but no snow but it's never snowed here in my lifetime that would be different, the snow has caused a few traffic problems up in the mountains with the highways closing.
      Stay warm Merle............
