Amazing sunrise........

Did you see sunrise this morning????
It was amazing and something I have not seen before............
the sun was red........then slowly changed.........
you could actually look at the sun for about 30mins after it rose..........
My photos are on my phone and it was pretty dark so not the best but OMG it was stunning......
Even now this afternoon there must be lots of particles high up in the sky as the sun is not full strength............

burning the candle.............

You know the saying........"burning the candle at both ends"
I well and truly feel like I am doing that at the moment........I think I am about to get burnt....
rarely a day at home and trying to help out with everything here means I have been doing stuff some days before I leave the house and every afternoon/evening when I get home doing more again..........the days are long at the moment...........
harvest at various places, fly blown sheep, heifers calving (one to shoot), let alone the garden which if you have been here will know takes some keeping up for watering alone....trying to supervise school work.....housework OUCH.....don't say that swear word........thank goodness for the washing rack on the verendah as I am happy to go there after dark.......let alone other life issues......and secret sewing OMG.......
10 days to get my SSCS parcel finished............
I know things will ease up 
NO sympathy wanted but my question is do you ever feel like your wearing toooooo many hats.....
how many hats do you wear???
ok must go bed is calling......
.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue........

Life is a blur...........

There is so much happening at the moment I feel like life is a whirlwind.......or maybe one of those spinning doors and your not sure what your going to be thrown into next..............
Mr Chooky has been trying to harvest for family and neighbours........
a couple of late nights at the neighbours trying to beat the showers of rain........
mostly just enough rain to stop harvest...........
great satisfaction to see another silo full of  oats for the neighbours.........
augering the truck into a silo........
trying to decide where to place the pieces................
thanks to Sonia for making the decision for me.......
Happy mail another Lucy Boston block from Shiralee Stitches............
Some secret sewing............heaps more to do............
If your in the swap how are you going?
enjoying the gorgeous purple carpets of the jacarandas.........
Catch you later.............
