We’ve been away from the farm for two weeks in New Zealand. I’ll post more about that shortly, but for now I’d like to highlight some of the cool moments from the past few days back on the farm.
First Wesley has jumped into his groove and is a happy little chap running around playing with his bike, the chickens and swimming at the pool.
Last night we witnessed an incredibly beautiful lightning storm come through the region. We woke this morning relieved to see that there were no lingering fires on the horizon.
I also managed to spot this rather impressive jumping spider, a female Sandalodes Superbus (Superb Jumping Spider) on the back gate of the house.
The chickens were very well taken care of during our trip, but sadly we’ve had to kill 5 roosters (saved the meat for the freezer) as they had completely destroyed several of the females. We’ve got the numbers down so that the girls can recover and the balance of male to female will be appropriate.
We’re stoked to be home to enjoy the quiet space and the ease of life here in the country. It’s clear to see that Wesley while he enjoyed New Zealand – loves his time here on the farm too.
On our second day home he pulled me close to him and said to me “I luh you” which oh my god I’ll never forget. It was just so sweet and so beautiful.
