      1. Good to hear they were okay. Yes heard a lot of Perth bound flights were delayed due to high winds. I’ve not experienced such drastic weather changes. It’s been quite hellish for travel too here.

      2. Sounds pretty cold there. I have a friend in Yass and relatives in Canberra who have been complaining. We are expecting rain again later in the week … just in time for me to be on the road again! lol Can’t win!

      1. Given that Pretoria’s long-term average temperature for July is just a fraction above 15-Celsius I am sure this year’s unseasonal temps count as a heatwave in the technical sense! We’re in the summer rainfall latitudes up here in PTA, only Cape Town and surrounds gets most of its precipitation in winter. So our winters are usually clear and cold.
        Do you normally get summer or winter rain in Canberra?

  1. We’ve had nothing but rain for three days. The winds were forecast but didn’t really eventuate. Lucky for me because I had to go out for a couple of hours on Friday with Cindy while people looked at my house. Not fun when you don’t have a car. The sky here looks like the first picture almost the exact same shade of grey.

    1. I hope you and Cindy managed to stay dry, Vanda. Yes, a car would have been handy for you. Can you take Cindy to the shop?

      You are so lucky to get that nice rain. We’ve just had wind. Rain threatens but never eventuates.

      Where are you off to when you sell your house?


      1. I wouldn’t take Cindy to the shop because there really isn’t any room for her to settle down. I’m glad we’re getting the rain, except when I have no choice but to be out in it.
        Where I go next is a bit of a mystery as yet. It will depend where Naomi and I can find a house to suit us, 3 dogs, 3 cats and all our collections. We’d like to be by the sea though.

    1. Thank you, Sharon. That is very kind of you. I am having fun learning the camera and it gets me out of the house. It also means that I’m not doing any art, but I figure the exercise I get on my expeditions is probably better for me than being hunched over my art table. I think you would love it behind the camera too. It sure beats being in front of it.

      1. Funny thing is that at the moment it’s very hot and humid in my neck of the woods. But I am like a lizard and I enjoy it. Although, it is so warm that yesterday my iphone overheated in the car. I was on Google maps and it stopped and showed on the screen: “iphone needs to cold down”. Lol

  2. Brrr! That’s cold! Poor horses! Around here it’s sweltering hot and no air movement which drives me up the wall (well, at least in my head because it obviously would be too strenuous 😉 ). I’ve been waking up early today because it felt like there was no air to breath left in my bedroom!

    1. I’ve been thinking about you, Sarah, and all that heat. In Australia, we don’t know how to keep our houses warm, and probably the reverse is true in Europe. Hope you have a fan at least to keep the air moving. There are signs that spring is on its way here, so hopefully it will cool down soon in your part of the world.

      1. The heat is a real challenge here in Europe. Most people here in Germany don’t have air conditioning in their homes because it is seldom ever needed. I bought myself a fan last year because then it was just as hot. I you want it cooler you have to go the shopping malls which is not really my kind of thing, but I admit it’s nice to cool off. 😉
        What bothers me is that people don’t see the warming up as a consequence of our actions and that most likely from now on summers will get hotter and drier around here.
