Hello again - Blogger played up and the first part published so here I am with the afternoon. These are a couple of shots of the road home from Boronia. Thats part of the Dandenongs with the TV towers in view. Visible from many parts of Melbourne, including my back deck.
And of course its amazing what you see driving down the road so close to suburbia - logging trucks at an intersection.
Had a quiet afternoon, so hot didn't even go outside to sit in the shade of a tree. the breeze had dropped and it was 'orrible:) I did have a lovely chat on Messenger with a friend in Nova Scotia, I love the intenet and being able to contact others without the cost of the phone. We do have Skype but it can be tempermental at times and as I mentioned this machine is not behaving itself at all so we clung onto the connection we had. Told her about the very hot day we were having so she laughed and told me they were expecting more snow to go on top of the last lot from the past weekend and did I want to come and visit, the only hot place would be in her house :)
I have a friend who grows fresh flowers for the trade and she often tells me her hands get cold some winter days, she wears cotton gloves to pick - needs them to feel the stems but not crush them ) so I gave her some of the fingerless mittens as a gift telling her when the weather cools down to wear them under the cotton gloves and see how she goes. She turned up yesterday with a huge bag of green beans from her garden so I spent this afternoon blanching and freezing them. A very welcome gift as mine haven't flourished in the garden at all this summer. My tomatoes aren't having a good time either so they may be going in the compost - can't waste good water on bad stock.
Its finally cooled off, I have made the bed up clean and opened the windows. Maybe I'll gather up my knitting and have a short time outside before it gets dark. Certainly not a busy day at all but then who knows what the next one will be like:))
Edited to say - I don't know why Blogger is showing my photos so large - hope its not a problem for anyone
