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.

Guests

I have had a lovely few days with my retired Aunties and Uncles who have been travelling around north and west Queensland.  They arrived on Saturday and departed today.  It has been a time to sit over morning coffee and gossip with the Aunties and each evening to all come together for happy hour and discuss more worldly subjects.
They both came with their caravans and one was set up under the shade of a big tree and the other was set up inside our very large shed.  They have been the easiest guests.  They insisted on eating breakfast and lunch in their vans and only having the evening meal with me.
DH is at Julia Creek at the moment selling some cattle so he was not able to enjoy their company.  Last night they insisted on taking me out for dinner at the local tavern.  That was a treat and the meal was outstanding.
They have spent their time doing a bit of sightseeing.  One day they spent looking around Mossman and Port Douglas and another day they made the trip to Cape Tribulation through the Daintree National Park.  We also did a little drive around Julatten on the ring road.  Cane harvesting is in full swing at the moment and was interesting to watch.
So they have departed today and will make their way to Babinda where there is a nice camping area and they next day they will journey on to Halifax where they will set up camp with another Aunty for a week or so.
I can't wait for retirement!

Sayonara!
