It has been hellishly hot here the past few days. Sticky & enervating.
We have had SG 2 days in a row. Not such a long day yesterday, but he manages to pack such a lot into his days! He did some clever constructions, then he went off to investigate what Gom was doing.
Gom happened to be shaving the balance of the stumps of what used to be the lawn, with the mower. So SG stopped to assist. I has slathered him in sunblock, & checked over the fence to see he had his hat on.
"Nanna, I love you!" a voice called up through the fern tree.
"I love you too!" calls Nan.
When they came back upstairs, I was using the computer.
SG came in, to investigate, & this is what he siezed upon.
"What is this in here for, Nanna?"
"That is my back scratcher"
Eyes widen in disbelief. "No it's not! I belongs in the kitchen."
"I know, but it makes a good back scratcher."
Gravely, "But Nanna, there are 'back germs'!"
Nanna can't help laughing.
And then, he tries it out. "You know Nanna, it does make a good back scratcher!"
Some friends had visited on Saturday, & L had used the computer. When she came out she said "Er, I have to ask, why is the pasta spoon on the computer desk?" I told her it was my back scratcher. I am still having issues with my skin problem, & am the point of madness. I have clawed pieces of skin off various locations, & must get back to Dr. Just give me time!
I took this photo last evening. I like the way the sun struck the Jacarandas. It was late, around 5pm. The leaves on our palm look almost golden.
This I took on Sunday evening. The sun was setting & I tried to capture the fierce red glowing patch low on the horizon. My camera is not very powerful, but it still managed to capture some of the effect. I could have cropped more off the top, but I rather like the ripple effect of the clouds.
