The gardens are planted

 We have been having some beautiful sunny days recently. The cold nights give way to warm, almost balmy weather so we visited one of our most popular parks today to have a look at the preparations for the upcoming Carnival of Flowers which will be held in Toowoomba from the 15-24th September at the beginning of the Queensland September school holidays.

How to start up a Simple Living Group

Pauline from Happy Retiree's Kitchen recently asked me if I could do a post on how to start up a Simple Living Group. I did write a post some time ago but I can't find it now so will do a new one and hopefully label it well enough so that I can unearth it down the track :-) This is how our Simple Living Toowoomba group began.......

Lambs, Winter Skin Fixes and Permaculture

I have been to two workshops this past week. The first one was at Racheal and Rick's Birdsong Market Garden where we put together some winter skin fixes which was a lot of fun. I will show you the photos later. Firstly though I had to show you the little lambs that we had a look at after the workshop.

A Dark and Dismal Week

After weeks of cold mornings followed by blue skies and sunny days we have had a week of dark and dismal weather as there was quite a bit of rain falling in the east most of which missed us apart from a most unusual winter storm on Monday which hit about one minute after I thought it was time to bring the washing in. Oops! Too late!

Making soap with lard


Obviously rendering pig fat is a fascinating subject judging by the number of comments on my last post :-) Well....here is what I did with some of the end product and I am reasonably happy with my first lard 'experiment' and learned something new during the process.
