It's been too long .....

It has been sometime since my last post, but now that it is nearly Christmas I thought it appropriate to do my last post for the year (maybe just one more showing Christmas Day) and possibly my last Christmas here at Lynwood Homestead (sad face).

We are having Christmas Lunch here on the verandah again this year, but only 12 of us.  As it is Ethan's (our nephew's son) first Christmas I am going abit overboard, now that doesn't sound like me (not).  I do love a good themed party and what better theme than Christmas and all its trimmings.

I have been taking hundreds of photos and short videos to help us remember the place.  Here are a few of my favourites.

Christmas Tree 2012

Ethan's first Christmas .... oh so cute.
Some bubbly by the Creek while the dogs went for a swim to cool off.
That's a cat fish nest circle in the foreground.

Can you see the small Turtle?  It's at the bottom of the photo towards the middle, it is trying its best to look like a rock.

Someone's watching.

You know it's Christmas when you see the orange/red of these trees in flower, beautiful.

The verandahs of both houses are perfect places to hold family get to togethers and other functions.  The photo's below were taken a couple of years ago on the cottage's verandah when we had a Pink Breakfast/Lunch.

Beautiful one day, perfect the next. Lynwood Homestead Old Queenslanders for Sale

Another absolutely beautiful day on the Gold Coast.  Started the day as usual, going for a walk with the dogs on the property and then off to the beach.  We went to Main beach just in front of Sheraton Mirage.  Just a half hour drive and you go from the Hinterland to the Coast and on the way you pass the "Worlds".   Wet n'Wild, Movie World and The Australian Outback Adventure on one side of the highway and Dream World on the other. All within 15 minutes from here.  Never ceases to amaze me how close we are to everything.  What a perfect weekend.  Why would you live anywhere else?

Old Queenslander Lynwood Homestead For Sale - Breakfast on the Verandah, what a way to start the weekend

What a typical glorious Gold Coast day!  Start with a cup of tea in bed, followed by a half hour walk with the dogs to help stimulate the apetite and then breakfast on the verandah.   Yes they are own own eggs, free range and organic and even though you can't see the avocardo and baby spinach is home grown as well.  Yum Yum.  You couldn't ask for a better start to the day, and to think this is home, not a resort or retreat, but home.  I hope the next owners enjoy the beauty and peace and quiet the property has to offer.

It's almost marmalade making time again.  The mandarin trees are laden with fruit.  Every season brings different fruit to enjoy eaten fresh or preserved.  Yum Yum, can you tell I'm a bit of a foody.

Old Queenslander Lynwood Homestead For Sale - A Craft Room That Inspires....

My hobbies include sewing, quilting, knitting, scrapbooking just to name a few.  I would describe myself as being crafty instead of artistic.  My latest obsession is Pinterest, I get soooooo inspired and  motivated.  There are so many talented people out there.  When I get inspired to do some crafting I retreat to my craft room where I get make a mess and then close the door.

Lynwood Homestead For Sale - Who will get the Custard Apples?

Here are some more personal photos of property.  The Custard Apple trees are about 6-7 years old now and although we have had several fruit I never know quite when to pick them, but the possums do.  This year I will win and I'm going to do some research on the net to see at what stage I should pick them (don't want to pick them too soon or they won't ripen) and make sure I get to them before the possums do, fingers crossed.  We have several fruit trees, we have 35 mango, 20-30 avocardo, macadamia nut, orange, lemon, lime, mandarin, plum, tropical apple to mention some.

See what lives under the front stairs.
