Hot again inside & out

Cooler out than in! Only 29.4C under the tree plus a cloolish breeze, think I'll stay out here all day. Teatime coming up.

Another hot day, even in the shade of gum trees.

The heat goes on

and on and on. I can't remember when it was below 30C. All the rock pools have been covered with sand (this pic taken last year), no sea breeze and no sign of it cooling down. I suppose we should be grateful that it isn't as bad as other places all over the world suffering in one way or another. I am - but it's still bloody HOT!!!
Plus my email server is down.

Mellow Yellow Monday #109

Not really Yellow - the best I could do. I pulled a muscle in my back yesterday and have to lay down with a hot pack and read. I'm finding this book very amusing (it hurts to laugh out loud).
Later this evening:  Finished the book, very interesting and enlightening. Very hot today - 99F, 37C (even hotter on my back!)

Shadow Shot Sunday #144

In other places in Australia they have to cope with crocodiles, snakes & sharks. Here in Yanchep Lagoon we have stingers (jellyfish) small & transparent they can spoil a swim.
Lots of super shadows here.

Plotting for a Food Garden - Green stuff

For a while now I have wanted to get seeds of amaranth & couldn't find any. How thrilled I was to be given a LARGE bunch of Vlita & found out it belongs to the amaranth family & is known as palmer amarynth.
Find out more here
Boiled or steamed, strained & mixed with olive oil, vinegar or lemon. I ate some with hummus I had made. Delicious!

Plotting for a Food Garden - NOT!

Went for a swim this morning & tried not to get tangled up in the fishermans line.
All I can do in the garden is pull up all the dead stuff! There are still herbs in pots but even the Garlic Chives have started to flower. Rain is forecast for next week - fingers crossed!

A play on words.

The road to Yanchep Lagoon. Going slowly round the bend!
I have just finished reading 'Still Alice' by Lisa Genova (read a review here). Also reading 'the school of essential ingredients' by Erica Bauermeister & found a reference to 'Lucca' in Italy (just had an email from a friend who has acquired a flat there!)
