Well a massive milestone that just cannot go uncelebrated! 800 posts and over 140,000 visits, and 229,000 page view later, I cannot believe that it has taken only just under 3 years to achieve it. I have been blogging since February 2008, and have enjoyed every single minute of it. Who would have thought that when my family encouraged me to write a book about all the sustainable living actions I had taken, that I would be would have completed what in reality is an chronological encyclopaedic guide to the "Good Life". So many adventures and happy days.
My highlight for today was cleaning out the chook house and letting the girls run totally free range for about 7 hours. They cleaned up the wicking bed for me, ate the low hanging plums, dust bathed in any dirt that was dry, and generally weeded the entire east side of the property for me. Plus they fertilised everything! It was so good to watch them clucking around in between breaks. Their living area took me a good hour and a bit to muck out, so I had to do it in two stints with a nice cup of tea in between. Mission accomplished.
So keep reading, there are many more posts left in this bloke yet!
