sweltering aussies

Man, we are currently in a week of 40°C heat (that's about 105°F) and I'm feeling it. We don't have air conditioning and our house isn't well insulated. D'oh. And the nights only drop to about 20°C. Oh well. We'll just swelter away.

Two days ago was Australia Day and it's nice to remember and celebrate being Aussie! We had friends over for a BBQ and then walked to the lake to watch the fireworks. Beautifully sunny and only 30°C, it was a great day for it.

Simon bbq-ing * Waiting for food * Two of my nephews so typically Aussie

Our crowd in our backyard

Me and the flag * Walking on Lake Wendouree * Waiting for the dark and the fireworks

We walked out on the lake and climbed up on the boat launch pier thing to get a good view.

Happy Australia Day!!!

room to reorganize

I had trouble sleeping the other night coz I foolishly looked at a bunch of creative blogs just before bed that got my creative mind buzzing. Amongst all my imagining of ideas, I decided I should really reorganise my room. Last night I got measuring and drew up a plan on my computer so I could shuffle things about until they worked. This is the plan...

So hopefully I'll get things moved this morning so you'll walk into my bedroom and then can move around the end of my bed into my "studio". He he. Down the left side of my room I have my desk (which will be removed of computer to create a larger work area), sewing cabinet and art shelves. Then there is my computer which will sit on a smaller table that Matt is going to give me from his room (coz he's been working on a desk anyway). So my electrical stuff will be in one area (I only have one double powerpoint so that's good) and my chair can easily move between my desk, my sewing machine and my computer. I'm so excited!!! Space to live and space to create.

second beginning

So there's been drama! I meant to delete a blog I don't use anymore and low and behold...AFTER I deleted it, I realised it was the wrong one! Damn. Tears. That all happened...about two months ago or so. I've been trying to get Blogger to find it and restore it. Haven't heard anything. However, my lovely friend, Tab, had been downloading my posts and says she has ones from Oct 08. Wonderful! So I can restore the last half of my USA adventures at least. Yay. So I'm back online...in case you thought this star had faded.
