It’s been a few weeks into lockdown now and signs are that it may be lifted sometime next week – so we hope. Everyone has been busy with work and school (ann online that is) and the weekends have been busy, too.

Fixing fences, wastewater dripper lines, some grading in the paddock by hand, rehinging gates, making new gates and doing more firewood so keep warm when the weather turns to cold and/or rain again.

I picked a few pictures to keep you entertained and maybe – once we are out of lockdown – you may want to drop by for a stay and enjoy some time off. We will be opening in level 2.

Muddy days

It’s been a few rather wet days. Some with intermittent sunshine but not enough to dry up the ground yet. The cats use the sunny breaks to go outside but other than that they seem to be in hibernation.

Springtime again and lovely weather

It’s so nice to get outside between rain break. The weather has been warming up over the the last days and we are getting 20 deg during the day.

Flooding – groundhog day

This year was special and I had not yet seen the water that high. Kumeu and Waimauku townships flooded too and other suburbs in West Auckland. For some it was pretty bad and I feel sorry for the affected people – and animals.

Lockdown – here we go again

If not doing office work, we fix fences, move animals around, collect, cut and chop firewood, dig trenches, build goat houses 😉 and fix all sorts of things that break over time.

Water everywhere – in the midst of winter

It’s been rather wet, foggy and cold in the last couple of days. The cats spent more time inside and expressing a form of cabin fever when awake but they are mostly asleep.

The horses are asking for more food, the chickens are hiding in their house and the ducks – well, the ducks are in their element.

More foraging

A few days ago there was finally a window with no rain and a bit of time, so managed to fill 4 feed bags with pine cones. Pine cones are excellent fire starters, full of resin and a rather large surface, thus burn really well, long and hot.
