|garden c/o my mother and father in law|
Home again. We've been up and down the coast, spending several days in both Bermagui and Kiama and then through the highlands visiting family for the past week. We thoroughly enjoyed the company, the coastal air, the beach swimming and the wonderful food and hospitality. But it is a good thing to arrive home safely from all the crazy traffic and to sleep in ones own bed.
Since we've been back it's been too hot here to do anything else than laze around indoors. The grass is more dead than we've ever seen it before. A few of the fruit trees are suffering. We've had our first ant infestation indoors. The fire warning signal went off twice yesterday. But the wind blew the fire in the opposite direction.
So we're bracing for more hot weather in the coming days. Hoping that the garden can cope with the stress of the heat. Hoping that the nearby fires stay under control. Hoping that we don't all drive each other mad in this heat.
And you? How has your week been? I'm hoping to catch up on a little blog reading today. Though I must say I feel as if I have been absent for quite some time. My blogging feels a little rusty and my fingers feel awkward on the keyboard.
Hoping that you are all staying safe, and especially those near the frightening Tasmanian fires right now. Stay safe friends.
