Home again


We are home again after an eight hour journey to Ceduna and back. It was nice to get away from the heat for a while although it was only for a breif time. Ceduna is my home town. This is where I was born and grew up until I was 30 and decided to have a change. Looking at that lovely ocean makes me wonder why I moved away. I caught up with a few close friends while there and stayed overnight with them. We headed back home yesterday afternoon and didn't get home until 11.00pm and I was too tired to blog. We arrived home to 40 degrees Celcius again.

This is the nearby silos at Thevenard. Photo taken from the Ceduna foreshore.

At my home today the temperature soared once again to 43 degrees C. Outside under our verandah the gauge read 45 degrees at around 2.00pm. The sun had a lot of heat in it. The poor garden is suffering and things are getting burnt and shrivelling up. There is a bit of a cool breeze blowing at the moment so we may get a bit of relief tomorrow. It is supposed to be 42 again by Wednesday. We haven't experienced a heat wave like this for a long while.
Hope your day has been a happy one.
See you soon.

  1. Hi Ma!

    I'm thinking of making the lemon meringue pie this weekend, if I get the time. Shane loves it! I'm hoping Woollies will have some pie crusts when I do the shopping later, because I cannot see me successfully making my own.
    Have a good day!


I love reading your comments! Through them, I have learnt that there are some truly lovely people out there. Thank you :)
