Despite Oscar the sheeps valiant effort to distract me by photobombing with his big woolly head i did manage to get a half way decent picture of today’s double rainbow.
I had to go to the back paddock and by then the rain had started so quick shots before my camera got wet..off to bed now and leave you with a rainbow for your Monday.
Double rainbow viewed from my back paddock overlooking our house.
So busy and trying to catch up..so a quick series of cute shots from this morning…first day of Spring…and this mum and her young male joey were enjoying some grasses in the rain…she.. as you can see.. has another wee joey in her pouch…which remained out of sight…
Too wet to burn off all the rushes..try as we may..we had at least 40mm of rain which is great..but no burning off..so Phil and I went down to the bottom paddock to say hi to the neighbours………
Have a great easy everyone and we introduce our neigh-bours….
ANOTHER HEATWAVE IS HITTING OUR STATE AGAIN…WE HAD ALMOST A WEEK OF MUCH MILDER TEMPS AND TO PUT A DOONA ON AT NIGHT WAS SO NICE..BUT IT’S BACK.. LAST NIGHT WAS MUGGY AND STIFLING AND AS I TYPE THIS I AM LITERALLY DRIPPING SWEAT! IT’S 33C AND IT’S 10.00PM…LOOKS LIKE ANOTHER NIGHT OF PILLOW FLIPPING.. NOW I KNOW I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO FLIPS THEIR PILLOW OVER TO THE COOLER SIDE..THEN FLIPS IT BACK AND SO IT GOES AN EVENING OF PILLOW FLIPPING TOSSING SWEATING AND GENERAL UNREST.. THE GROUNDS OUTSIDE AND THE WHOLE LANDSCAPE ARE DRY ..BONE DRY..I DROVE TO A LITTLE TOWN CALLED MARYBOROUGH TODAY AND AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE IT’S BROWN GREY OR BROWN.. THERE WAS A FIRE THE OTHER DAY THAT WIPED OUT 350 ODD ACRES..AND THIS ON A WARM TO HOT DAY WITH NO WIND..I KNOW SOME OF YOU ARE BURIED TO THE ARMPITS IN SNOW AND I FEEL GREEN WITH ENVY, AS MUCH AS I HATE BEING COLD AT LEAST I CAN RUG UP, STOKE THE FIRE AND TURN THE ELECTRIC BLANKET ON. THIS IS MIND NUMBING AND OPPRESSIVE HEAT THAT HAS TAKEN ALL MY ENERGY. COMPOUND THAT WITH A VERY BUSY PROJECT I AM WORKING ON WHICH HAS SEEN ME NOT IN BED BEFORE MIDNIGHT MOST NIGHTS AND I AM STARTING TO THINK I SHOULD SIGN UP FOR AN ARCTIC MISSION…. THE NEWS AND FIRE SERVICES INFORM US WE HAVE NO BREAK IN SIGHT..THE INNER CITY MELBOURNE HAS HAD A COOL CHANGE BUT WE WON’T GET IT , WE ARE TOO FAR INLAND. SO I AM TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH BLOGGIES BUT WITH ONE EAR LISTENING TO THE SCANNER ONE EYE LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW AND BOTH HANDS TYPING DAY IN DAY OUT I MAY FALL A TAD BEHIND…AGAIN…. WHY DOES YOUR OWN SWEAT MAKE YOUR EYES BURN??? ARGHHHH… THE ONLY REAL BONUS IS THAT THE SUNSETS AND SUNRISES ARE DIVINE THIS TIME OF YEAR.. THE SUN RISES IN THE MORNING OUT THE FRONT OF OUR PROPERTY AND SETS OUT THE BACK…HERE ARE SOME PICS OF HER BEAUTY ..EVEN IF SHE IS A BIT OF A BEAST AT THE MOMENT! HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE ..
