I usually run with a theme. And I will again, but first apologies are in order. I am in grump mode at the moment and hope that I don't express it on your blogs.
This was a difficult week on lots of levels, not helped by the weather. MS loves heat and humidity. We had both, way out of my comfort zone (though fortunately not to the temperatures other parts of Oz endured in recent days). 50C/122F is in my eyes almost impossibly hot. Just the same my feet are swollen. Swollen to the point that I have no arches to my feet at all and I wonder if the skin will split. My ankles and legs also look like the Michelin woman (goodness how attractive). It is uncomfortable and painful, and makes the simplest task more challenging. I am also still tired to the bone and go back to bed several times each day. Yes, of course I am aware that there are many people who are worse off. Which makes me feel guilty for complaining but doesn't make me feel any better.
So I have reverted (again) to things which bring me heart balm. We went down the lake for a roo fix. It was hot, and the roos knew it. So they were hunkered down in dappled shade and looked totally at their ease.
There are a surprising number of kangaroos in the picture above. How many can you see?
Those with collars and ear tags are females who have been given contraceptives - much better than the culls my local government also conducts.
Apart from this trip and some essential business (which included a shift at Lifeline) I have been at home.
Marvelling at the sky.
And making brief (mostly early morning) sorties into the garden. The lilies continue to bloom in profusion. Some roses are entering their second flush. There are agapanthus and geraniums and daisies...
There are more begonias coming into flower every day.
At least one of the hoyas is coming into bloom
And the first bud on the cactus is growing rapidly...
I hope that you find comfort, beauty and respite in your week, where ever you live.
