Spring has arrived at the Dalli Cottage and with the warmer weather it brings longer days, the gorgeous flowers and my birthday which is something I always look forward to each year. This year was no exception with a magical day with my family in Toowoomba for the Carnival. It was the kind of day where you love seeing your children grow up to appreciate simple things like watching Carnival Parades on her Daddy's shoulders and relishing in the beauty of a water iceblock to cool you down. I always get sad watching Macie grow up....but on Saturday, I loved it - and I know she did too!
As the butterflies begin to hover around the beautiful flowers - I am also starting to get the occasional flutter of butterflies in my stomach to remind me that I am incubating our darling little miracle. We are heading to the 'half-way' mark - and hopefully everything will continue to swim along without too many issues.

However I am more than happy to report that Milly Puppy saved the day with the constant barking to alert us! Thankfully she was in her little pen so she couldn't show me how brave she was (as I think the ridiculously cranky snake would have won the war) but she did so well with letting me know that it was in the yard!!
Every farmers wifey will now know what I am talking about when I say that it is now a neccesity that I scan the yard to survey for snakes and look left and right before I walk out the door. Or when you mistake the garden hose for a snake and have a minor heart attack each time!!
Yay for Spring.....Bring on Autumn!!
