Late Summer and Early Autumn

As much as I love this time of the year, I do not really like the part where you wake up in the morning dreading to get out of bed because it is chilly and there is no warm fire to snuggle up to with a hot cup of coffee.

It is hard to believe that it is almost the end of summer! The change of seasons represents a change in my life, in reflection I can see it. Early this summer I had thought that just by being happy I could make this summer to be the best, so many plans and ideas I had on how to make a wonderful and happy summer. I guess first of all I had no idea that we would spend most of the summer cooped up indoors because of rain, second I had no idea that circumstances around me would change so drastically that my entire world would be turned up side down, I didn't foresee that I would be sitting here in this moment writing this.

People come and go, we change, lives around us are affected by their actions, endings, that should have been seen coming, arrive and we are surprised by them. Beginnings have profound affects on me, ones that I had not expected.
As I read not long ago, We cannot know the whole story. We cannot see what is ahead but with the grace of our God we can accept and deal with whatever comes.

A new post soon. I will put some photos up of the changing of seasons.

Its raining, its pouring...

The old Pig is Snoring!
I walked out our front door the other day to find this.
She is not a very pretty specimen and she doesn't know about being tidy, but she does send us into fits of laughter every now and again.

There is no way better to sleep than half off the bed.

She was so very tired...
I think she thought I was the paparazzi or something, she was not happy about being photographed in the middle of her nap.
I was not kidding about the rain, it has been raining quite heavily here for quite a while, the last couple of weeks it has only left off for a day or so. We are dreading more flooding, not for our sakes because we don't get very affected by the rising waters as we are a long way away from any major rivers or creeks. But I do feel for the people who have farms on river flats. And anyone who lives in rising water range of a river.
I will fill you in on my trip to Sydney next time! Till then.
