TODAY IN WRITING


INSTEAD OF PICTURES I AM GOING TO WRITE ABOUT TODAY.

IT’S SPRING AND TODAY WAS GLORIOUS,THE SUN WAS SHINING AND THE WEATHER WAS QUITE BALMY.

WE HAD A STRONG,VERY STRONG SOUTHERLY WIND  WHICH WHIPPED THE TREES AROUND AND I COULD HEAR THE BRANCHES IN THE GUM TREES RUBBING AGAINST EACH OTHER AND GROANING..A DAY FOR BRANCHES TO FALL.

I SPENT THE DAY WEEDING,SITTING AND TENDING MY MUCH NEGLECTED GARDEN AND ENJOYING THE SUN WHILE THE CATS RUBBED AGAINST MY LEGS AND THE DOGS LAID IN THE SUN LONG ENOUGH TO GET WARMED UP AND THEN RETREATED TO THEIR VERANDAH BEDS.

I WAS A BIT CONCERNED THAT A PLANNED BURN OF 228 HECTARES WAS TAKING PLACE TODAY JUST 19 KM AWAY..ODD CHOICE OF DAYS TO BURN OFF.

I WENT FOR A STROLL AROUND THE PROPERTY AFTER LUNCH TO GIVE MYSELF A BREAK FROM WEEDING,THE DAM HAS FILLED UP A BIT MORE AND I WAS SO EXCITED TO SEE LARGE TADPOLES TWITCHING IN THE WATERS EDGE..THE DAM IS INDEED THEN HEALTHY..AND WHEN THEY BECOME FROGS THE SOUNDS WILL FILL THE BUSH OF AN EVENING…IT’S THE MUSIC OF SUMMER FOR ME,ALONG WITH THE CICADAS AND CRICKETS.

IN THE SUBURBS ALREADY A TIGER SNAKE HAS MADE AN APPEARANCE SO I MUST BE VIGILANT NOW,THE BROWNS WILL START TO MOVE ABOUT LOOKING FOR MATES AND FOOD AND THEY WILL NOT TOLERATE CARELESS FOOTSTEPS IN THE BUSH..THE DAYS OF LETTING THE DOGS RUN FREE AROUND THE YARD WILL STOP AND ON LEAD WALKS WILL BE THE ORDER OF THE DAY.

THE WASHING DRIED QUICKLY WITH THE GUSTY WIND AND NO SIGN OF SMOKE FROM THE BURN,I MUST GET THE SUMMER FIRE PLAN SORTED AND THE ESSENTIALS PACKED AND ORGANISED..THINGS REMOVED FROM THE HOUSE UNTIL THE FIRE SEASON ENDS AND THE CAR PREPARED FOR THE SEASON.

SPRING IT MIGHT BE BUT ALREADY IT’S SHOWING SIGNS OF A NASTY SUMMER..IT’S NEARLY 11.30 AT NIGHT AND IT IS STILL 20 C OUTSIDE..MORE LIKE A SUMMER EVENING.

THE WIND IS STILL BLOWING,THE JASMINE IS STARTING TO FLOWER SO SCENTS ARE FILLING THE AIR,I CAN HEAR THE POBBLEBONK FROGS IN THE NEIGHBOURS DAM DOWN THE FRONT OF OUR PROPERTY..THEY ALWAYS MAKE ME SMILE…FUNNY THINGS THEY ARE..

TOMORROW I WILL WEED OUT THE BACK,ANOTHER NICE DAY IS EXPECTED AND I LOVE THAT I AM NO LONGER FEELING FLU RIDDLED AND CAN GET SOME NORMALITY BACK IN MY LIFE.

HAVE A GREAT MONDAY EVERY ONE STAY SAFE AND ENJOY WHAT THE DAY BRINGS TO YOU

  1. What a great update on things there in the bush……Spring is a great time of the year and hopefully it won’t be too miserable for summer. Do be careful of the snakes…..we didn’t see any this year for a change (thank heavens). So happy to hear you’re feeling better too – that flu was NASTY wasn’t it?!

    • Boy Pam it was a shocker we have both been so sick but thankfully the rotten thing has now gone…and yes I don’t want to see Mr Brown as he is a bit too deadly for my liking!! I also hope summer will be okay but the reports are for severe grass fires this season…fingers crossed it is all okay ! Bev

  2. Please be careful with that tiger snake, maybe the snake takeawayerer will come and give you 100 when he can take really all snakies away? I’m glad you feel better and if my hold my nose out of my window I can smell your yasmine (or maybe that’s dad’s deo LOL)

  4. bev, glad you are feeling better & a sense of normalcy is returning to life, I enjoyed your post; it was like being THERE….frankly I would have been unable to continue to write, after the word snake; they would find my rotting carcass being circled overhead by the dread vulture, as I would have had a massive coronary on the spot….enjoy your….tuesday !! 🙂
