Well-timed silence hath more eloquence than speech.

I think this has been the longest gap I've had between postings. When I started blogging in November 2010, I was eager to build up a stock of posts so that anyone visiting my blog, were I destined to be lucky enough to have any followers, would at least have found something to read. That objective has certainly been accomplished, as I see my last post clocked up at number 85. That means, for anyone who hasn't been following me since Day 1, and that's all of you, there's enough to sift through...if you happen to feel like a visit, but you've already read the most recent posts ;)

In three words, I can sum up what I've learned about life: It goes on!

Alternatively, you can always work steadily through the list of blogs I follow. Either way, I too have learned that life goes on...whether I blog or not. There is such a huge world out there and so many incredibly interesting and talented bloggers that for anyone wanting a bit of diversion, the choices and options are endless.

Since my last posting, life has been very busily 'going on' in our household. I have been making steady headway in the garden and spending oodles of time with the dogs outdoors. From Sunday, rain is forecast, which is about time...our dams have fallen to a little above 50% which is 20% down on the same time last year. We need to start playing 'catch-up' in terms of storage ahead of our next summer season. The weather has cooled down considerably and we had our first load of firewood delivered earlier this week. Lighting a fire first thing in the morning and keeping it going throughout the day has become a winter ritual in our home and one which I love!

|There is a privacy about winter which no other season gives you...only in the winter can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savour belonging to yourself. |

|YAWN...this is just about the most boring post you've done...I think I'll join that Hadeda for a nap!|
