Who likes the weather when it’s raining and storming outside? No one – well, maybe the odd people that are happy that their grass is growing, like us humans inside. Oh, and the ducks! The ducks love it. They can almost swim on the front lawn.

The horses look a bit wet and depressed and so do the alpacas and cows. The chickens having a rest inside the chook house and the cats… well, the cats come inside for a snooze.

Naughty likes fires

Unless you name is Naughty and you love fires. He site next to me every time I light the fireplace, would crawl into it if you did not pay attention. And it’s not even the warmth – it seems to be the smell and the moving lights.

I did stack up some firewood in front of the door, just for the wind to turn and make everything wet.

So there we are predominantly inside with the cats that brave the weather from time to time just like us who have to go outside at feeding times.

Other than that, stay at home and stay save under Covid-19 level 3 in Auckland.

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.

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.
