Still Hot


Still hot here and another week of it, before any relief will arrive. eek

Rebel & Harley are taking full advantage of the a/c and the futon made into our bed. While those 2 are comfy as and relaxed while cool.

I am keeping an eye on the outside animals with ice bricks for the rabbits to lay against. Fresh cool water for the ducks and chooks.

Garden is going okay, though I have about lost all the spring onions to the heat. They had only just germinated too. So I have made the decision to let these few die as well and save the water for the older plants producing food for us. I'll sow more seeds once this heat wave is gone.

Pat & I are getting house happy and wishing for a day outside in the fresh air. We are giving his "Stargate" DVD box sets a hiding and we are up to series 3 at the moment. While keeping cool inside I have been knitting to stay sane and have finished Pa's socks for his 86th birthday.

So until this heatwave moves away from us, it's pretty well stay inside where its cool and only venture out to the shops when needed.

This is the upcoming days forecast.
