Our intense summer heat gave way to cooler showery days this week - much to everyone's relief. The garden looks more vibrant and the surrounding dry countryside is looking fresh again, a pleasant break before things heat up again in the next few days.
Miss V spent most of this week in a nearby city (130km/80 miles away) for a cricket carnival. This was her first time away without any family. She managed very well and had some great successes in the field too. Some of us traveled up to watch her on two separate days. We enjoy the quiet back roads rather than our major coastal highway, especially during the busy summer holiday season. The Australian 'bush' is refreshing to the soul, especially when Master T drove the long home stretch of 100km from the next town to ours both days while I relaxed and took some photos.
After several false starts last year, I finally found inspiration for utilising the beautiful blue half square triangle off-cuts from a quilt I finished over a year ago. Hoping to share more of this one soon.
Signing off with a couple of kookaburras spotted on my neighbourhood walk late this afternoon. :)
