Here in Western Australia, we've just had three months worth of rain in two days. It is so odd! Yesterday was the coldest February day on record at 17C, about 67F. On the 31st of January we even had a fire in our potbelly! Unheard of for this time of year, in fact it's not usally safe to do in summer, but the whole place was soaked, so we thought it would be ok. the stone walls of the cottage have a lot of mass but once they get cold or hot, they stay that way, and if cold, the stone seems to leach chill into the room. I see why stone castles used large tapestries on their walls as much as possible.
The dogs and I have still gone walking. We love it cool! This is a bush reserve out south of the town. I hadn't been up this track before and really enjoyed it.
I've finished Cyrano the kitty's special little lap afghan, but last night someone else was enjoying it while snuggling up to daddy.
My next project is an afghan for my youngest niece. We went and chose colours this week, since it wasn't much of a secret, what with both her sisters already receiving an afghan from me! I like the colours she picked. I'm looking forward to starting to work with them. This time it is one big square. No joining. Yay!
New family dog, Pippa is settling in well but she blotted her copy book this week by leading Kelly with her and going for a run up the road when Jen took her eye off them to saddle her horse. Thanks to the power of Facebook, they were soon home safely, and Jen only had a few more years taken off her life as a result. They were in no way upset about being lost, they were actually quite pleased with themselves.
67 degrees is chilly?? The world really is upside-down down there:) It was -13 here last night. Want to trade for a while?ReplyDelete
Dancing donkey, I would love to trade but only until the first time I had to dig a trail through the snow from the house across to the barn and carry buckets of water down it. :DDelete
