Today Graeme and I went to look for new bedroom furniture. Our current stuff is well past it’s use by date and seeing that Graeme brought me for Christmas a new free standing mirrow the other furniture must be replaced. A good excuse to go looking today, as it is bugging me that the new mirrow cannot go into the room until the old stuff is gone. The sooner the better I say. Well we found I think exactly what we are after, just have to decided whether to paint or stain it. Still thinking about that .
Today is the tenth birthday of our granddaughter Hayden. She lives in U.S. and we rarely if ever get any letters or photos of her from her mother, we still cherish her so much. She is always in my thoughts. Happy Birthday to a special girl and love from Australia.
It has taken me a few days to bring myself to write about the horrendous bushfires in Victoria that have been raging through our great state. The loss of life and property has been unbelievable ,the worst in our history as a nation. It’s not that we, our family, know anyone that has perished, but I feel that some how there is a connection. We hope that each nights news does not bring more deaths but that has not happened, but we still pray for this to happen. The fires are still a horrible threat and we still pray. Hopefully peace will come soon for those who have had to live through this terrible time, and life can begin again.
Yes today is supposed to reach 44c. Not nice, we can only vege out in the cool house and wait for the coool change due through late tonight. It’s a chance to catch up on show we have taped during the week. I must make sure the dogs are cool too. They have plenty of shade, and cold water, but sometimes they do strange things like sit in the full sun. Oh well I can only patrol them regularly.
