Winter Break

Despite the heat, my little pansies are surviving

After a quiet winter as far as blogging goes, I’m back again.  My posts may have been inactive, but I was very actively enjoying everyone else’s and reading lots of books, quilting, cross stitching and getting sick with the flu.  Also busy in the garden, pruning, weeding and mulching every tree and plant in sight.

Winter is a nice time to recharge, snuggling under a rug with the cats, eating chocolate and watching movies.  The chocolate part was fun at the time but I’m regretting that now I’m back at the gym.  I see some hard work ahead!

Now we are officially into Spring, but it feels like we have jumped straight into Summer!  The temps have been soaring in Queensland to mid 30’s (c)!!!  Everything is dry and brown and the fire danger is high.  Yesterday we had a brief storm which resulted in about 5 mls of rain, but we need so much more.  The grass is actually crunching underneath my feet, but hopefully we’ll get some good rainfall soon and everything will suddenly turn green again.

Just back from a nice little getaway in New Zealand.  More on that next time.

  1. Hi Jessica – thanks for asking! Yes, I’m fine. The flu lasted for 8 days (and yes, I was counting!). Some people have been seriously ill with it, so I was very lucky.
