Where have I been? To the seaside. We spent a week at the coast and it was good. No to-do lists, no chores (well not many) and fairly good weather too. I have missed my blogging friends.
The thing that amazes me most about the beach is the sand. I am still finding it and I don't think our car will ever be sand -free again. That's not too high a price to pay for fun.
The wildlife was rather friendly too and didn't mind being photographed at all. Tim made mention of how funny it is that we were stopping to photograph kangaroos when they are in plentiful supply at home. Oh well, this one was too hard to resist.
When we did arrive home on Saturday it was to dry, gusty, hot conditions. There hadn't been a drop of rain while we were away and the garden was suffering. I was almost ready to not bother. Thankfully an afternoon nap and a storm put me in a better mood.
Everything has had a generous water and a good soak of rain and all looks up again and ready to take on the summer growing season.
Now a rainy day is giving me the luxury of having some time to write letters and cards and enjoy some craft making.
