A whimsical cat and other things
It has been very hot today and going to be hotter for the next three days at least, so not a lot gets done when it is like that, one tends to do a sort of reverse hibernation. At least at my age I do but I must say the grand children dont seem to mind all that much.
I made another whimsical cat the other day, when I have not much to do and the brain has gone to mush this is what I like to do.
Last night John wandered out with my camera to try and take photos of one of the male peacocks in a pine tree just on dusk. So here he is in a couple of positions. they do make a noise in the morning when they tramp over the iron roof.
Then there is the cockle train, normally a steam train that runs between Victor and Goolwa but at the moment it is a diesel, a/ because the steam train cannot run when it is hot and dry in case of fire and b/ because I believe the steam trains are in being repaired.
Finally the calendar my Japanese friend Yoshiko sent me, this year it is done like a mini kimono, every year I get a different one.
We were in Victor very early this morning as the red ute had to go for a service at 8 am and I had a physio appointment at 9.30 so we collected mail and did the grocery shopping while it was still relatively cool. The ambient temp in my car got over 41 degrees C in the afternoon when we had to go in and collect it.
It is still well over 30 degrees at the moment and will be a hot and uncomfortable night I am afraid.
