JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Hooper James

Hooper James is the son of my god-daughter, Nikki and her husband Troy.  Hooper turned one this month so we went to Charters Towers for his first birthday party.  Nikki went with a "Caterpillar" theme for his birthday and what a great job she did both on the cooking and the decorations.  Nikki's grandmother is Myra Scott Beach who I wrote a vale to her in a previous blog.  Nikki is so much like Myra and has followed in her grandmothers footsteps when it comes to catering for a large number of people.  Well done Nik!  It was a spectacular feast!
