I realised fairly early on that I was missing one essential component - a flat area of even ground. Instead I seem to be stuck with not-so-gently undulating hills and gravel tracks. To make matters more complicated it has rained so much here that all the tracks are soggy and slippery. One day I got home with so much mud on the bottom of my shoes I had grown a good two inches. (Perhaps an under-rated way to quickly look tall and skinny?)
There have also been a few other obstacles.

Plus a swooping bird down near the creek has resulted in me running over the crossing waving my arms in the air and making noises like a banshee.

Other than that it has been fun. I have surprised myself and made it up to Week 5 of the C25K programme. Living on a farm I don't need headphones and have just run with Bruce Springsteen (my jogging sound track of choice) blaring full volume out of my iPhone. I have always had a soft spot for Brucey-Babe and was upset when I missed out on tickets to his Perth shows. (Did anyone get tickets? They sold out within a few minutes apparently.)
In other gripping news I have been spring cleaning. I have attacked all the usual suspects like the pantry etc. I always find a few interesting surprises in my pantry. Particularly spices of the more vintage than fresh type. This time I found these. If there is a world-wide MasterFoods mint jelly shortage, don't panic. I am all over it.
|Anything That Green Must Be Good For You|
Not much else to report really. I have been busy furnishing our quarters amongst other thing. So far I have made really exciting purchases like mattress protectors and new pillows.

It has been a super wet September which is mainly good as it means our crops have had a chance to make lots of grain. Now it is getting to the stage that we are worried that we will get bogged while we harvest! My garden has responded nicely though and I will work on a garden post soon.
Hope everyone is having a lovely Monday wherever you all are.
For those of you, like me, who missed out on concert tickets - here is a little vintage Bruce to brighten up your day.
