Today is a gorgeous day, 28 degrees, sunny and not a cloud in the sky. It truly feels like summer, and reminds you that we are only 5 weeks away from school holidays, which is 6 weeks without school. A welcome blessing. This year has been long and stressful, and having a respite from it all is welcomed, even if it is just a staycation.
During the holidays I hope to attain a spinning wheel and learn to spin. It would be nice to have a back-up to knitting for the days when it is just too hot. And we get many of those days. Days when it is so hot we hibernate in the house with the air-con on, eagerly awaiting the cool change.
Summer for me meas new beginnings, new resolutions and goals, as well as family time, time to spend together without the pressures of school, homework and strict bedtimes. Things are always so much more relaxed, and I think we all need to relax a bit.
The week is meant to remain hot, and hotter, letting us know summer is definately on it's way. And if this week is anything to go by, it may be a scorcher. At least the drought has broken and our dams are 50% full. You can have an extra shower and not feel too bad!
