The sky today is just a vast expanse of blue.
So............ a bit of drama from last week.

From the back garden looking towards the Indian Ocean, 5.10pm 19th February.

The last Tuesday in the month.

Book club last night was another good evening with
friends, wine and food.
Many different views about ‘Middlesex’ by Jeffrey Eugenides.


Talk about climate change - 40 four days ago and today 17 with rain.
1st rain for a long time, yippee!! No need to water.

That's better!

Able to chill out today, watched the very touching Memorial Service televised from Melbourne. How I had the audacity to complain about the heat yesterday when the people in Victoria have been through so much.

And I moaned when it got to 33.9c ............
When I removed the wet shirt & towels from the freezer
& put them on me it helped cool me down. Outside it was 40c.

Feeling a bit bony.

Ooooo there are butterflies in my tummy,

Misty morning

Looking towards Two Rocks from Yanchep Lagoon.

Wondrous Bounty from Yanchep Paradise

Take one pumpkin,

cut it into pieces,

steam or boil with or without skin on, mush it all up,

and you have two lots of soup, pumkin mush to freeze for another day,
enough left to make pumpkin scones. But what do I do to the seeds?

Lots of things to do with pumkins at

Blind date for tomorrow

Called into the library today and picked up ‘A Blind Date with a Book’ for Valentines Day (don’t know what the book is until opened) along with other books & a chocolate heart. The book by Barbara Vine was in the ‘throw away’ bin. Middlesex belongs to Sam & is the Yanchep Book Club book of the month, I’m halfway through. As the weather has cooled down I’m having tuna casserole tonight with French beans, broccoli & peas with a crusty bread & cheese topping.

Not the best day for Nic – he ended up in hospital for appendix operation! He is OK.

Go look at this 'Blog of Note'

Ready and waiting.

Red Hot

News from over east about the fires – 181 dead – tragic. Here the temp is 33.4 inside, 36 out. No sea breeze. I’m off to the beach soon.

Lagoon again........

Low tide, full moon tomorrow. Australia is on fire except
Queensland where there are floods. Lives lost, houses gone.

Towards Two Rocks

When the tide is low the water is cold, so I didn’t go in today.
The other Yanchep Morning Swimmers went beyond the pole walking along the reef.

Low tide

Very low tide this morning exposed rock pools, seaweed & three sea creatures (sea slugs?).

Mr. Con Glomerate Esq.

“I only have eyes for you” he said out of the side of his mouth.
“Don’t ask me to jump too high, my feet are killing me”

What tree is this?

Empty pods of the tree in the front garden.

The tree had small flowers and now has what looks like buds but are pods.

Cloud cover

Big clouds but only 3 minutes of rain, lovely smell. Hot and humid.

Inside temperature got to 32 degrees, outside 38, not as hot as Adelaide thank goodness.
