Every Thursday we like to post a picture of something we've found online that inspires us to do something similar at the farm. Sort of our own blog bulletin board so that we can eventually look back and someday, hopefully anyway, recreate it...enjoy!

After the sad events of this past weekend, the loss of our sweet Brisbane, we were blessed with so many wonderful comments from all of you.  So instead of our usual Inspiration Thursday post, today we want to take this moment to say that on this day, we are inspired by all of you.  

Instead of replying to each comment we thought we'd post one big note and tell you.  This is for each of you, to tell you how much your words meant.  Poems, thoughts, sympathies, prayers, even things that made us laugh when we needed it (residents of Brisbane, all is well with your fair city, ha).  They all meant the world to us and really helped.

We had no way of knowing when we started this blog a few years ago that we'd make so many friends from all parts of the world.  We learned just how many after all of the comments you left and the personal notes that were emailed to us directly. 

So we are... all of you.


  1. Yes, my Brisbane is doing well (and hot),but 120 km north of it is even better! I'm sorry about your Brisbane, it will be very strange for awhile. In case you ever need (in the future) more Queensland / Australian names for a new darling cat - try one of these from near me - Eumundi, Noosa, Toogoolawah, Maroochydore, Mooloolaba ? (if nothing else, you will be kept busy Googling where the hell these places are)! Melindi

    1. Hi! Thought you might like that, you truly made us laugh when we thought about the heading of the post, ha. Wow, now those are some awesome names. Not sure I can even pronounce them but you know what? I'll be googling them shortly!!!! ha!!!!! :-)

  2. Sending lots of hugs back to y'all and Hobart.
