My sister's day begins early as she heads over to the stables to feed and water the twenty odd horses. My great niece, Bella, loves helping "Nanny".
The name of the property that my sister and brother in law own is called "Sapling" and it is just 5 minutes from Beaudesert but very rural. This area is renowned for its many horse racing properties. I don't think there is a lot of money in horse racing these days but my sister and hubby just love the horses even though it is a lot of work.
After a pancake and banana breakfast, cooked by my brother in law, we were back in the car and on our way to Toowoomba via Boonah, Laidley and Rosevale.
At Toowoomba we stopped at Mum's for a quick cup of tea and delicious, still warm, Banana Cake. Mum was able to relate that John's 6 hour operation was successful although he is still in ICU for the next few days.
Next stop for us was Cooroy where we found a shady rest area and made our selves BLT's for lunch. We decided to have a nanny nap after lunch because we knew we would probably sit up late when we reached at our son's place.
We arrived at "Evergreen" at around 5.00 p.m. and once we had unpacked the van we grabbed a couple of drinks and headed up to the chooks where the two new Maremma pups were caged. They are so cute at this age.....Big bundles of fur.

Back at the house Marco had a roast in the oven and we chopped up carrots, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and corn and cooked them in the steamer to go with the roast. Marco is also renowned for his gravy and that did not disappoint. The meal was delicious, healthy and very tasty.
After dinner we watched Australia annihilate Fiji in the World Cup semi-finals. Australia now plays Tonga in the finals.
