~ It’s August already! Last month of Winter and it’s certainly making itself felt. We had blue sky days earlier in the week but with chilly winds
so I took a gamble and over a few days got three loads of washing out on the clothesline and into the sun and wind, and although they weren’t quite dry when I brought them in, it only meant an evening over a heating vent to finish them off. Much better than washing hanging around for days on end.
Then yesterday it rained on and off in Melbourne and snowed in country Victoria! Pretty pictures on the news but looked mighty chilly!
~ August has brought Stage 4 Restrictions to Melbourne, and back to Stage 3 for the rest of the state. A very sad, but very necessary state of affairs. Hopefully we can get our terrible numbers down over the next 6 weeks. Hang in there everyone!
~ We can still go out for exercise, so I’ve been walking and taking pics for you…..
~ Only one member of the household is allowed out at a time, and I drew the short straw to do the grocery shopping today (The Golfer did the vacc’ing – saved my back!). There were very few pieces of fruit and veg left at the supermarket and number restrictions were back on several grocery items. I don’t buy my fruit and veg at the supermarket anyway and our neighbourhood shopping strip was doing very well, with plenty of supplies, when I called in there on the way home
~ These carnations have been delighting me over a few weeks
~ This aspect caught my eye the other day as I walked by a neighbouring house
~ and I thought this was a sweet message on the footpath of a nearby street and leave it with you…..
