Start of Summer

 What a scorcher we had for the beginning of Summer.  I looked on our outdoor thermometer in the middle of the day the week before and it was 35 degrees.

We took Klara to the creek for a paddle last Sunday.  For the first time..... only because her stick got swept out a little..... she actually swam.  It's nice to know she can!  She wasn't willing to repeat the exercise so we will have to keep practicing.   She loves water and has now started dipping her paws in her drinking water all the time.  One of our three well growing tomato plants was destroyed the other day and a constant stream of garden prunings of her choice accumulate around the back door.  She's also started noticing her reflection in the back door and runs up to wag her tale at herself!

We had my work Christmas get together last night.  It was in Mount Macedon.  Our grass is gone now and everywhere you look is brown.  How amazing it was to drive up the mount to find green grass and lovely green shade trees.  It really did feel like a little piece of England. 

It's been nice the last few weeks to be getting back to doing some of the things I enjoyed before we went away, like a trip to Ikea in Melbourne, dinner with my old workmates and a visit to Daylesford to The Mill antique market. Mick says we have "one foot on the jetty and one foot on the boat" but he's not referring to nb Parisien Star.  We are at the end of a long process with the council planning department for a potential project and didn't know if we'd be staying in this house or not.  Finally it's looking like we'll be moving on again.  We will know for certain on the 19th and then we can forge ahead with a new adventure!  More about this later.....
