Boy was it cold this morning! I lay snug in my bed warm under the covers very grateful for the central heating kicking in before I got up.

I took these pics of the frost in the front yard, a white coating on the pine bark. This is the closest we get to snow.

I spent a very nice day with my sister catching up & shivering if I had to dash outside. She passed on to me a letter she had received from a branch of our family tree, the 'Faints'.
Apparently someone has done a lot of research & traced back ancestors from my father's mother's side of the tree right down (or up) to my great great grandparents. They want to arrange a family muster in Queensland next year & are gathering more information on the descendants.
It has sparked an interest for me & now I want to know more about these ancestors!


  1. Oh, I wanna trade you! We have 100% humidity today (it's been raining for 4 straight days). My hair definitely wants to be in Australia right now.

  2. I know what you mean about chilly mornings..we've had a couple too!
    Your family get-together sounds like fun! :)
