On Friday, we dropped Ayala and Sarah off at the train station (did I mention that they were doing a sign language course?), then my Dad dropped Dan and I with Aunty Jane at Tamgambalenga (dont worry about pronoucing it correctly, lol!! But just for your information it is said Tam-Gam-Bal-Enga).
Yesterday we went skiing, it was foggy and it rained sometimes, by the end of it my legs felt like they were going to fall off and I was going to die of hypothermia (ok, I admit I am exadurating slightly, lol but right then it seemed to be the easy option!). I was soaked to the skin and Dan and Aunty Jane werent much better.
Well will finish this later because we are going gor a bike ride...

On Wednesday my Mum and I got some small square (they are actually rectangle) hay bales, for my garden. I prepared the ground a couple of weeks ago. So anyway I now have a half made (bodged up) greenhouse. I (with the help of my Mum and my dear little brother :) made a square with the bales and put bent pipe over the top and tied it all down... now all I have to do is get my Dad to help my find some clear plastic (back at our other farm).
Thursday my brother gave me a driving lesson in the old car we use to go around the farm. *Shudders* I dont think I'm very good, I kept stalling it! But... I am probably not the worst person to ever drive that car :D (ie. my teacher, lol). I am glad I am learning now so I have a year to practise before I am lawfully allowed to drive on the road!
Friday... what happened Friday?... I dont think anything happened Friday :D
Umm I think that is it... Sorry this is kinda short, I just dont have much to say this week. I guess I should go plant some potatoes :D (or something like that, lol)!

Its Sunday afternoon, its raining cats and dogs and my Dad is collecting rain water off our roof to make Coloidal Silver , and we tested the water and it is almost exactly pure water! The water on the farm is out of a dam and it has like 200 parts per million (which it really disgusting! I think Dad said that the drinkable limit is 500 parts per million) and the water that came off our roof is like 10 parts per million which is practically pure!
The weekend... *Sigh*... Exhausting!! LOL but fun :). We had Kurt staying out again, he has got so much energy! After a weekend of watching him you feel exhausted!
Friday, after I wrote, it was a pretty normal day until we noticed another cow having trouble calving! The calf died... It is so annoying! Two in one day! It is so hard not to let it get to you, you just have to harden your self and get on with the day. I know from experience that it is hard, really hard! It is impossible to grieve for every little calf that dies, if you did you would get depression!
Well I really need to go (and do what I am not sure, lol).
Till next time then!

This morning when I found the cow, I knew that it would probably take a few hours so I just prayed "Father in Heaven, if its your will I apply for this job YOU do the miracle! And I wont worry about it.".
I dont really care if I get this job, it isnt what I want to do in my life but right now its an open door and if it isnt right thing for me God wont let me get the job, now all I have to do is wait and oh I hope the rest of the day doesn't hold any more surprises! Tatblol (The Author of this Blog is Laughing Out Loud)!
Gotta go, still have things to do!
Bye for now
Well I gotta go, I have a lot to do today, I have to put my job application in (I'm excited about that too:) and right now I have to go check cows and feed the calves :D.
I'm sooo excited! LOL!

Some time last week my Dad accidentally hit his shin with a big hammer and was limping around then the next day or so he was working in the dairy and he got a little bit mad at a cow and he kicked it *shudders*. He saw the doctor yesterday and had an X-ray... He has successfully broken his toe in about 4 pieces!!! So he is kinda stuck inside, I will just make mention that my Dad hasnt spent more than a day inside in his whole life (!) so he is getting really bored, lol (and he will have to spend the most of the next 6 weeks indoors)!
I have been sick since last weekend, it is getting really annoying... Not that is much I can do about it!
I have started to write for a website called Heywire, its a competition but you can put blog posts on it as well, its for teenagers in farming Australian, its interesting to see what other farming Aussie kids are writing about. Actually it can be quite depressing :P, but interesting all the same.
I am up at 11:00 PM writing Key Selection Criteria, my application letter and my resume (actually I finished my resume this morning) for this job that I'm going to apply for, lol still cant tell you what it is (well I can but I am not going to:). Ayala is up with me helping me (well that was until she got side tracked talking to someone on Facebook, lol, no seriously Ayala helped heaps!) and we are practically done now. We still have to think of two people who can act as referees! I didnt realise that I dont know very many people.
Well gotta go, am really tired and need to finish off so I can go to bed.
Till next time I write!

BTW, if anyone was wondering about the sudden change of music from Gospel to Irish tap/river dance music, I got infected with it the first time I ever saw tap/river dance on TV when I was just a little kid. I absolutely LOVE it!!! All of the music on my play list (except two songs) were off a tap/river dance video call The Lord Of The Dance.
On Thursday, as we planned, we went to Albury/Wodonga for our dentist appointments, which for some of us went well *evil laugh*! Sarah walked up the dreaded hall way first, a few minutes later she came back and said "X-ray."
My brother, looking very scared, took the second walk and came back half an hour later with a fat lip.
Lastly I walked up the hall way (Isn't it funny how you think of things like "Walking the Plank" or "Sheep being led to the slaughter" when you are walking up the hall way toward that dreaded white room! lol). The dentist had a look at my teeth and said "X-ray." My first thoughts were "Awesome!! You are the best dentist in the WORLD!" I did not say that because that would be completely out of character, lol.
So we went and got the X-rays. Have you ever seen your teeth on X-ray? if you haven't it is very weird, it was quite interesting and kinda scary (scary, cos you can see all the stuff that is wrong with your teeth!). Anyway enough about the Dentist.
What other news do I have to tell you?? umm, I am thinking about applying for a job, I wont tell you much about it just in case I don't get it.
I will upload photos later today. I don't think I will have time to do it right now.

I am very sorry I haven't posted in a while, I have made a bad habit in telling myself "I wont post till something interesting has happened." and when something does happen and when I get around to writing the blog post I say to my self "But that wasn't very interesting, I'll wait." *sigh* well that kind of thought wont get me anywhere! Just so you know, today will only be words although I have a LOT of pics I want to put up, I don't have time this morning. Yesterday we had a bit of an outing on the farm (like we do every day), but yesterday was special! We took the CAMERA!!! Yay! We aren't very good good at taking the camera places and so there for we don't get pictures :P which can be annoying sometimes, like when a pen-friend asks for a picture of me I go "Uhh, sorry about this but, ummm, the last photo of me I have was taken two years ago!", hehe it can be funny too :D!!
Well anyway there have been a few things happen lately. After my parents went to meet with our boss, because they discussed the things that needed to be done around the farm, we have been getting ready to build a shed near the house so that Dad can work on machinery and fix stuff. Its all very exciting! So yesterday a friend who knows about this kind of thing came and had a look at the site (which is now scattered with bits of machinery) to see how hard it would be to level, and while they talked and measured I had fun taking random shots of them, the machinery, our Momma cat and me and my shadow, lol! Then when I got back to the house I cropped and polished as best I could :D (Which isn't very good at all!). Hope you like them.
Just one tiny little thing...
You have to wait till tomorrow to see them!! Mwhahaha! :D Cos I have a dentist appointment today and I need to feed the poddies and get ready before 8 am and its now 20 to 7!! AHH!!!
Got to fly!
