Oh, how I long for a wood shed..I really do.
We did happen to have a team of tree men come by this week to fell a handful of trees that had grown out of the dam bank and had since died. Hubby was particularly worried that during a strong gust they would end up in the dam which would be no fun at all to try and remove.
Watching the men work was fascinating, they really have it down to a fine art, employing the use of ropes and pulleys, vehicles and strategic cuts to enable the trees to fall in a perfectly neat line, avoiding the larger, close growing, still living (!) gums.
So, another plus, we have a little more extra firewood that is well seasoned. It's been a couple of years since these trunks have seen any life..
And they burn hot! Deliciously hot! Oh, yes, they do.
Elsewhere, the ground is like a sponge that can't take anymore water..
Cold, rainy, wintery days are however, conducive to taking oneself and a car load of crazily chattering daughters off for a little outing..
After helping to check in her suitcase and seeing their Oma off, who is setting off on an epic trip of a lifetime, we headed down to the beautiful old theatre in Thornbury for the second suitcase event of the day - a suitcase rummage!
Such fun! A gorgeous old building that was choc full of people selling items straight out of their suitcases!
I thought I had died and gone to vintage heaven! Gosh I love 'urban slow'!!
I also happened to come across my good friend Kirsty (who blogs at Bowerbird Blue), and managed to pick up an item or two from her stall. Much, much fun! I'm looking forward to hearing how her day went..
Hoping your weekend was cosy, relaxing and just maybe..a little bit productive!
