Our unwanted visitors

What is a hairy grey-brown noctuid?

Here's a clue. His mates are brown diamondback, nate and bogong.

If you said moth you are correct. Currently there are millions of them here. And that is just in our street! Today we flushed 40 of them out from the gap around our hatchback to stop them from flying into the car when we put in the groceries. Thankfully they are disappearing.

On other matters. The vege-garden is looking well. The broccoli has finished, the carrots are 10-12cm long, tomatoes are flowering and growing well, as are the onions, capsicums, leeks and parsley. Oh, and the poppies are beautiful.

My theory

I have a theory.
Pregnant women can smell with their eyes. Rebecca can just look at a piece of chicken from... O did I tell you that we are pregnant. Rebecca and I will welcome our little one into the world on April 22 next year. Yeah, as if Good Friday was not going to be busy enough.

So back to my theory, Rebecca only has to see a piece of chicken from 20 metres and she puts her hand over her nose and says, "that smells disgusting."

Ah, the joys of pregnancy.

Latest project

I asked the confirmation class to make something that reflected there faith in God. As a member of the class I thought it best if I do the same. So I am making a celtic cross out of some Jarrah left over from the house renovations. You will get to see the finished item.

For now here are a few more photos of Esperance.

The weather

Autumn is my favourite time of the year. Last week we had rain, lots of rain, and this weeks weather has been glorious. Cool 10 degree nights with 20-22 degree days. Living is easy in these days.

Thistle Cove, our favourite beach in Cape Le Grand NP.

Our visitors

Rebecca's Mum and Dad have been with us for a week and we are enjoying their company as much as they are enjoying the scenery of Esperance.

On Saturday we go up to Kalgoorlie for the 25th celebration of the opening of the church building, before going on to Perth and they fly back home.

My Dad got home in time for Easter and he is doing well. Praise be to God.

Big Day

On Sunday, we had two worship services, one AGM and drove 504 km.

It was a big day.

We love Mondays.

The latest

Twiggy's Landing, Woody Island

Life got real busy after we were married and I got out of the habit of going to my blog. Sorry for not keeping in contact.

So here is a run down of the last 6 months:
  • October - we got married and had 4 wedding celebrations.
  • November - Pastor's Conference in Perth and lots of shopping for furniture.
  • December - our first Christmas together, Mum and dad came to visit.
  • January - it got to 47 one day, our air con was broken, we went to Woody Island.
  • February - Justin and Kelsey (from Canada) came to visit, we went to Albany for two wonderful days.
  • March - we went to Melbourne to visit Dad and the rest of Kramers.
Thank you all for your prayers and support for our family since Dad's accident. He is getting better and will be moving to a rehabilitation hospital soon. We pray that his head injury has not done much damage.

God bless
