this just in....

It's days like these that I simply love technology.  From 300km away, I can feel that I am almost there....these shots sent by either the builder or my beloved are the very beginnings of our home.  And now that I've uploaded them, and downloaded them, they are free for all to see.  See, today I love technology.

The house has begun....

The Shed...

The Shed is finished.  It's been finished for a while, but I've only just got around to getting all the images together to post.  It's so exciting having somewhere to potter around in when we visit our little patch of dirt.  Of course, it took no time to fill it.  Friends of ours were selling off some farm equipment so we were fortunate to get the beautiful old Massey Ferguson.

My feelings about this land have changed too over time. I've always loved it,  although for so long it was left untouched.   Now she's taking my heart one beat at a time.  Each time I visit another little slice of me is left there until the day I call it home.

There is movement on the block.  Pegs have been banged in...and we are having fun stepping out the boundaries to our house.  A shed has been built and quickly filled with oodles of necessities like ride-on mowers, trailers, tools and bits and bobs.  I even have a pair of Rossi boots.  Who'd have thunk it??  But the more time we spend out here the more our anticipation grows of when this will be our place of residence.  We are planning out the veggie garden, getting advice regarding boundary trees, chook pens and I'm working on the citrus orchard (yes I will never buy another lemon!)... More importantly the builder starts on the house this month - squeeeeeee!!!!!  I hope to be there on the first day.  It will be very exciting times.

And if you are visiting here from my other blog Mira Narnie, thanks so much for stopping by..
