Here in parts of Australia, we are sweltering through a heatwave. Now I know that many of you are finding that quite a foreign concept in your part of the wold right now but it is what it is. Yesterday, the thermometer in our shade house climbed to 43.9°C – and that is in the shade. The Garden Gnome and I went to the local markets and at 8am the temperature was already over 30. People we spoke to had beads of sweat above their top lips. We didn’t stick around. We left the market, did what we had to do around town and then came home and shut up the house (the Garden Gnome has been getting up at first light to open the doors and windows to let in the morning breeze) and turned on the air con. The air conditioning doesn’t reach my end of the house where I sit at my computer so I spent as little time on here as possible yesterday. I moved my sewing machine out to the dining room and worked on my new quilt.
However, we had something to be grateful for with all this heat. Bless you Hugh Jackman! Bless you. 😀 😀
