Oh my goodness, today is the last day of my holidays. Back to the salt mines tomorrow. Not happy.
I must say I'm not sure I achieved much during my break - the weather has been too hot for much.
I love this tree above. I believe it is some type of grevillia. It grows in our neighbour's yard. The birds love it and I love the contrast it makes against the sky.
My tomatoes are growing pretty well. With all this heat I have been busy keeping the water up to them. Here I am relaxing with some bubbles and my new mauve volley shoes. Cute I think :)
There has been some crazy weather. Rainbows (always welcome) and awful bushfires (not welcome). I feel so awful for all of those people that lost homes, not to mention the poor animals that lost their lives. Despite being some distance from the fires, our cars we still dusted with ash.

The above photo was taken on the evening of our hottest day where it reached almost 42 degrees Celsius. We went down to Lyn's parents for dinner. They live on the water. This shot shows the reflection of the bushfire sunset on the side of the boats. A bit eerie I think.
Well, as I said, it's back to the "salt mines" tomorrow (or at least the art gallery). We realise that working a full year, only to have a couple of weeks off is not enough, so will be saving hard so we can either do a road trip on the mainland or a quick trip on a plane sometime during this year. Something to aim for and look forward too.
Keep safe people.
