It’s been a few days since I last posted so I thought I would throw up a few lines. We are in the Burdekin for 2 days—-the good news is that there is water in the house again after last week when Chris got a shower but it disappeared once he left for work!!! All is back again so life is good. When we packed up the car this morning I noticed water bubbling out of the ground by the mailbox where the water cover was so that did not look good!!! Our landlord is in New Zealand until Nov. 23 so I contacted our realtor who came right out and checked it, sent a tradie out and they determined it was a council issue. Just got another email from her that it was passed on to the council and as far as she knew it had been taken care of so hopefully by the time we get back on Sunday night all will be well and taken care of.
Had a lovely lunch out today with a friend who I met through Lorrae and she invited another friend so there were 3 of us and it was just nice to get out. Everyone has really bent over backwards to include me in things and make sure that I get to know people and I really appreciate it more than they know. I know Chris has worried about me meeting people but I have met more people here in the 4 months (yep—it has been that long already!) than I did in a year in Iowa for whatever reason that is!
Tonight we have a dinner out with some of the guys that work at the mills down here and their spouses which will be a great way to meet some more people. Chris has been trying to do this for awhile but our schedules had not worked out until now to take advantage of it.
Tomorrow we are headed to Mackay and Chris will work on Friday and then we will spend Saturday night so that we can do some sightseeing and touring around on Sat and Sun. One of my friends told me about a great national park where the kangaroos come down on the beach at dusk to play and get water so I hope we can see that! We are trying to find some neat places to take Aaron and Thom when they come in a couple of weeks. it will be here before we know it!!!
Will post more pictures soon. Hope you all were able to see my pictures on Picasa—if you didn’t get the link and want to see them email me and I will send it to you!
