I seem to going through a patch of not achieving a hell of a lot - yes, stuff like extra wood is being cut and carted to the woodshed-to-be, and bits for it have been scavenged and it will all go together soon. And it will be faster because everything will be ready. But right now it feels like I'm running on one spot. The same with the little shed - collecting bits, but you really don't want to work on corrugated iron on your own or in the wind. Anyway, hopefully a big leap forward soon. The achievement for the day is a scissor jack I found being returned from rusty ruin to work. I am going to use it on the old wreck that has a complete towbar (as opposed to the $5 tow bracket for which I would need a bar.) trapped underneath it.
The weather continues blustery and iffy, with real waves on the east coast. So more marine misadventures are on hold. So is seafood. I know I need to start planting soon, but we're in sort of hiatus - and not producing a lot either! A bit of broccoli, some silverbeet... James's fiance arrives next Monday and at the moment we have lots of meat (normally lots of fish, shellfish, veg, and relatively sparse meat - now with shooting wallaby we have lots of meat... and 2 turkeys in the freezer.) As soon as Alana leaves we have Paddy and Clare - probably for the last time in some years as Clare doesn't get long holidays. It's going to be truly lovely to see them all, but the self-sufficiency calender says mobs should visit in autumn :-).
