Rest in peace Kahlua

Usually we share happy moments and fun things. But this week’s a tough week for us, and most of you would know how special our cat is to us. We’ve had to say goodbye to our beloved Kahlua yesterday :'( Our loyal companion of 12 years left us very suddenly on Wednesday afternoon. She’s never been away from us, has moved 4 times. It’s so strange and will take some getting used to. We are just so grateful, that she passed away very peacefully. Both our kids don’t know a life without her.

Kahlua, we will miss you, rest in peace.

New Fluffballs

One afternoon, there was Wasabi waddling around the paddock and there was a bunch of fluffballs tumbling after her, 15 little duckling.

Drylands

The last few months were pretty dry with no rainfall other than a few drops that pretty much instantly evaporated upon hitting the ground.
I think the last rain was some time before Christmas last year which would make it three months with no rain at all.

Look across the Kaipara valley with rainclouds in the background and diffuse light coming through the clouds.

Finally some rain?

It’s been a long time without any rain. Not sure how much this will be but anything is better than nothing.
