Early Morning Start

Early morning for me today - woke up round 3am - still lying there awake at 4am so decided to get up. No sense in tossing and turning and annoying Doug. So having a coffee and catching up on some emails.
hmmm don't hear any rain at the moment - heres hoping for a fine day for a change - would love to be able to go for a bit of a walk around the farm today - I so need to start getting more regular exercise !!
No cows have arrived yet - the stock agent said it would depend on what he could find at the auctions so maybe next week ?
So far this week, amongst other things, I have done a couple of entries in my Art Journal and made some ATCs. Here's a couple of them below.

Counting down to our vacation to Melbourne, Australia in October. Seems hard to believe its been a year, almost to the day since our 2 month vacation to the States. Oh the memories !! We are hoping to get back to the States again next year to celebrate Dougs 50th birthday !

What A Difference A Week Makes

After the disappointment of the bad weather and flooded Barn, what a difference a week can make in your mind-set.
Almost all set up in the rumpus room up here in the house and its looking pretty good if I do say so myself. Will take some photos and upload them later.
I even took some time out from all the moving and organising to make some cards using my 'bug. Waiting impatiently for some of the newer folders at the moment too so once they arrive I can't wait to play with those ones as well.

Welcome to my world at the moment

The second major storm hit in the space of a couple of days earlier this week.
Photo above is once the water and mud had receded a bit in the Barn.
To say I am upset is an understatement but life goes on and it could have been much worse.
I am now in the process of packing it all up and moving it up to the house. The floor down there has got water and mud all over it - everything that was in boxes out in my office part that i had partioned off is wet and everything else feels very damp so can't be left down there.
I have decided I will set up what i can fit in the games room here in the house and leave the rest packed up, up here and not use the Barn - I just can't take the risk right now.
Another minor setback but in the words of the song by Kanye West - "now that that don't kill me, can only make me stronger"
Once I am set up here in the house, I can't wait to get creating again !
