Last night it rained heavily. We lay on the couch listening to it pound on the roof and I felt some comfort knowing the rainwater tank we use will be filling up quickly. Our house is not actually heated (well, only with firewood) and is also not connected to council water, so we are conscious of our usage, and have to be careful when showering. Often we just shower together (though this is proving to become more challenging as my belly’s radius takes up more and more space – ahah).
Winter is just around the corner so we won’t be worrying about it much longer…there will be buckets of rain!
We did manage to sort out a load of wood when we first moved in, and have stacked that on the front porch, and now two more loads will be turning up. Mike’s dad has been an advocate on behalf of the baby, and assured us we needed much more. He’s gifted us with two loads. It was such a thoughtful gift!
We’ll be stacking the next lot over the coming few days – and I know someone whom will be thankful….for the heat…
My dad will be here in 6 weeks for a months stay, and despite being a bit of a miser on home heating as a teenager – he does complain when he gets cold! We’ll all be toasty warm this winter, and our baby will probably be grateful as well.
Here are a few tracks I’ve been listening to lately…they all have a similar relaxing feel:
I wasn’t sure I’d be lucky two days in a row, however I did spot this colourful little jumping spider rather quickly up our driveway, yesterday. I ran back inside and grabbed my tripod and thankfully was able to capture a slightly closer image. I’m still trying to find a reliable source for identification…but for the time being I think it might be a juvenile trite auricoma?
Also because I’m still obsessed with this film – please check the trailer out:
