That's what I'm talking about

on January 28, 2013

My first "real" day of summer. What a bliss! It's been pretty windy all day but the sun was out and the surf was good. Spent a few hours at the beach around the corner, went for a swim and already got a nice tan. Even found a book on the shelf I hadn't actually read yet! Can't remember when I last read a book - sometime last year... Today was just what I needed after the busy season at the dairy. Refilled my energy to be ready for the kids at kindergarten tomorrow. Wonder how much they've changed over the past 6 weeks.

An early morning walk

on January 04, 2013

Since the New Year's rush is over my hours at the local dairy have been cut a little. But starting work at noon has its advantages - for example being able to go on an early morning walk to the nearby wharf and enjoy the scenery of our new home. Crystal clear water, lots of wildlife (we have a bird and wildlife sanctuary just around the corner) and an abundance of fish. Should do that more often :-)

Meanwhile - after having been working at the dairy for two weeks - I have not only memorized 95 percent of all the prices. I can also feel my right arm from doing ice-creams all day long. Growing some strong muscles there, I can tell you! Haven't had a day off for almost 2 weeks now and still got another 2.5 weeks to go before things are back to normal.I'm not really a workaholic, but somehow I keep ending up in situations like this *sigh* well, at least I get a free ice-cream (almost) every day after work *woohoo*
