How the days go by….
It was a good prompt when I woke yesterday to do the rebaiting of the traps at the springs paddock and Dean’s DOC 200 trap. It was a different picture to what I had imagined with the apples being eaten that I had planned to pick and the doors of all Dean’s huts and caravans open. This lead to another trip with 2 stakes, 3 traps, a sledge hammer, staples and hammer to set up the traps for last night. It wasn’t good timing as we had a lot or rain last night… catching nothing. I also shut the doors for Dean.I had extended my time up on Shield’s flat by walking along the flat looking for mushrooms on the DOC paddock but saw nothing but walked along further to see if anyone was about.
Life is quiet here for sure. A few vehicles yesterday with Higgins road inspector and someone to follow up a request to have a culvert cleared, it needing a blast through to empty it so we don’t have water running past our gate when it rains.
Today I have enjoyed a quiet sit reading a novel after a busy week with outdoor activities and more for next week. Now the fire is on with the temperature dropping and rain still in the air.
A week has gone by since we started this new life.. isolation and a change of focus.
