      Annie, darling girl - thank you. I am sure it will be a wonderful day for the bride and groom. I am not such a good buisness woman thou. I find I do so much for these people, and am desperate for it all to be a success, so I undervalue myself. But thats ok. I really do want it to be great for them, and end up spending more money preparing than I get for holding the function here !!!!!!!
      Anyway its been a huge productive day, so I am thrilled with that. I will be concentrating on the garden tomorrow (DH busy doing all sorts of other things, so no help from him), but its a huge garden. 4 Acres of garden and lawn, so quite a bit of weeding still to do !!!
      Anyways if its raining on the day, all this time and effort is wasted, however if it is not - I will feel proud that I have put the time in !!!!

      • OMG I got sooooo burnt yesterday !!!! Very naughty, but its nice to see a wee bit of colour in my cheeks !!!!
        This morning I have finished scrubbing the garage floor, and bucketed out the spa pool. I could have used a hose, but it takes forever !!, and I need to re fill and get the heating started. It will take a few days to heat up to 38/39 degrees. I haven't even started on the weeding as yet, however good to get these other jobs out of the way. The wedding party are coming to decorate the garage on wednesday - draping, tables, chairs etc... So it is slowly but surely coming together. Apparently I only have 3 babies to look after during the course of the evening, with one of them being only a few days old - so I will be in my element !!!! Give me a newborn any day !
        Anyway I need to duck into Rangiora to pick up some food. Middle DH has just popped in with a huge slab of beef. Not sure how to cut it all up, but I am sure she will help. Fantastic ! Steak for dinner !!!!

        • No DD left me to it. No other option than to cut into huge slabs and wait for DH to assess. This morning he suggested, because it was a lean Dairy heifer - to cube and freeze. So I have put the first lot into the crockpot. Am hoping to find some other good recipes today, and will experiment. I don't really cook casseroles, however it is something that I would like to become proficient at - so this is the perfect opportunity !
          EQC opt out boyz here today. It surprising the damage that we have, this far out. Little annoying things like doors not opening properly, a couple of schist colomns cracked, wooden floor damage, and cracks everywhere. So hopefully I might get a sanding and polishing of the floor ? We shall see.
          I was reading a thread about eating moar protein, and I think this might be my weight stall problem. I have been so focused on being in ketosis, and lowering carbs - that I haven't really analysed what MY body needs and wants.
          The last few days have been interesting, with IFing until mid afternoon (only coffee with cream), a small snack, then a BAS and meat for dinner. I am still having the occassional wine, but the scales seem to be moving.
          yay - we shall see if that continues !!!

            • Sounds like you've really got your plate full down there.
              Hope you get all your stuff done and dusted soon so you can take a well earned breather :-)

                Wow, Gwamma, you certainly were up late/early. Hope you have made great progress on today's list.

                I had to laugh today. I was busy in front of the mirror trying on some new (to me) skirts when there's a knock at the door. It was a researcher from the Health Department ready to survey me on health questions, including my diet, exercise, height, weight and blood pressure. I was only too happy to show off how healthy I have become.

                • Thanx guys, yep sunday afternoon we are having a happy hour - that might stretch into the evening !!!!! so it will be a relaxing end to a very long month or two !!.
                  DH up bright and early this morning, filling in an illegal rubbish hole down the back. I love my rubbish hole !!!! It is very user friendly in that we burn things every month or two,and we don't pay to have all out crap taken away. Anyhoo DH is worried that some wedding guests will wander down and fall in the hole ! so as of in an hour or two - gone. Why do boys love driving tractors ??? Does it stem back to when they were little fellas, and almost every little boy had a tractor or a car ?????? DH would litterally spend hours on his bulldozer, or tractor, if he had the time !
                  Right I must finish my morning coffee, and get a move on.
                  have the best day everyone

                    • I have not read your whole journal but I liked reading about your goat. We are starting a goat dairy and the goats are so funny. So much personality.

                        Primal pumpkin, thanx for visiting.
                        Goats are very clever indeed. I have a naughty little red car, and our Rascal loves riding in it with the hood down. Invariably he pees or poops, however nothing that a tarp doesn't fix.
                        He spent the day with us yesterday (he is actually middle DDs goat), but I am getting the garden ready for the wedding, so he was tied up all day. I absolutely hate seeing him tied, but I can't have him destroying the plants ! And his chain is 60 metres long, so he gets around a fair bit of the paddock !!!!
                        How many goats are you milking ? Will you make cheese ? I would love to hear how this goes.
                        Good luck

                        • Well what a day !!!! Had a list as long as my arm, and have ticked 3 things off of it !!!!! Bloody hell !!! I know that tomorrow is another day, but I have 30 men coming for a Lions meeting tomorrow night, so some of tomorrow will be spent preparing supper, and cleaning the house for them.
                          Anyway I am sure it will all come together on the day.... but seriously I need to stick to the list tomorrow !
                          The scale is moving down ??? I don't understand? I'm not working that hard towards this wedding....I am still having a glass or two of wine, more than occassionally......I have not run, walked or lifted heavy for weeks now.......
                          all that I have done is up my protein a little bit, and add some fruit in each day.
                          I am definately gonna stick with it for now, but maybe....just maybe.... my body likes to mix it up a wee bit ???

                          OK - still deciding whether I go to Oxnard or Lake Tahoe.....Oxnard/Lake Tahoe.....

                          • Stick to your list!

                            You are probably burning energy running around like a flea in a fit, but well done on the weight loss anyway.

                            • thanx Annie. Yes today I will stick to my list. I suppose the good thing is that the lawns are now done, and that wasn't on the list. I also had 4 extras for lunch yesterday - which I wasn't counting on, however it doesn't take much to whip up some soup etc....
                              We have a hard frost here this morning. I cannot believe it ! We just do not have frosts in November in our part of the world. I am hoping that we will not have a cold summer - I so need to get my legs and MF arms lathered in vit D.
                              The bridal party were here until 10.30 last night decorating the garage. It looks fantastic. But it was stress city in the garage !!! LOL MIL was helping and all the plans the Bride had made were over ruled by MIL. I really felt sorry for the Bride. However I stayed away.....it wasn't my argument !
                              Alrighty then, am off to clean clean clean !!!!!
                              Have the best day people !
