I Won yay yay

Morning Ladies, Well we are getting thunderstorms and lovely rain for the last 3 days and everything is looking fresh and beautiful. That's what you get out here after you pull a windmill. Two weekend ago we noticed that the tank was down on water and that the windmill was not pumping like it should so pull it up to change the buckets was in order. Now that is done we get the wonderful rain. Here is DH and DS up the windmill and can you see the wire rope here in the middle of the photo at the bottom i am in the Toyota pulling that so that we can bring up the rods and pipes. We were down there at 6am that weekend to pull it up then went home to putt the new buckets on the pump and back down on Sunday morning to put it all back down.

I will have to get outside and take some photo's of the Raintrees so that you can see how beautiful they are looking. We thought that we had lost them from the cyclone but will pouring some water and the rain they have come back looking lovely.

The Beautiful Wendy over at Sugarlane Quilts had her 2nd Blog anniversary and i won yay. Look what arrived in the mail last week all wrapped beautifully.
And look at the goodies inside i have never had a turnover before and the beautiful threads and Wendy must no that i love variegated threads they are all lovely thank you Wendy.
Well i have the first load of washing on the line and now to get DS onto his maths for the day do that i can vacuum and mop before it gets to hot. Lets hope that we get some more rain this afternoon. Just talked to hubby who is away at the mines and it is 38 there already but he said that the clouds are already building so lets hope that they get some rain out there to settle the dust. Only 10 days and he will be back home and we then are mustering. Busy busy busy this time of year.

Well hope that you all have a great day.

Why Rells Place

Morning Ladies, What a wonderful hot day here today in FNQ. We even had a shower of rain at 10:30pm last night but shhhhh don't want to scare any more away. We need some rain right now it would be lovely and i just love the smell mmmm.

Well while blog hopping was over at Dawn's and she is asking how we came up with the names for our blogs. My Blog Rells Place is easy. My name is Narelle but all friends and family call me Rell and this blog is my little place in blogland so there comes the name Rells Place. It is where i can come and share what i have been up to which i have to blog more about. And i do so enjoy seeing all the wonderful comments from friends that i have made in Blogland. So have a think and go and see Dawn as she is having a little competition as well. Thanks Dawn for doing this i have been blog hopping all morning to blogs that i have not been to before and love reading how they all came to get there name.

Well hope everyone has a great day talk soon.
