Weekend away

Had a great weekend away at Toowoomba in January.  Finished sadly with all the devastation. My heart goes out to those who have been affected by this event.  What I saw was nothing much ( a raging flooded, muddy gully) compared to the bigger picture.  Although in the flooded gully at least 4 homes were flooded. I thank God for His care in this time.  Staying at a friends home that was high, jsut a street away, we had power, no water but had a rain water tank, so the bucket brigrade happened the 5 days I was stuck there till the roads home opened.  My friend was to have had workshops that week so her pantry and fridge were full so had no food problems.

Hi all

Hope your Christmas was a happy and safe one and not too many of you were caught away from home.
We took 10 hours to get home after Christmas but all family got back to their home town safely.  Heavy rain has seen flooding here in Biloela and our dam is 79% and rising which is wonderful considering we were 6% at the start of the year.  We are slowly catching up with other dams that got full earlier than this.
Have done some downloading of photos of cakes and craft that I've been doing.  Hope you all enjoy.  Check out all the pages.  See you soon.
May you all have a Happy and Safe New year with fabulous things to happen in your life whether it be your job, art, sport, love, family.  May God's Blessing be yours.
