What a week we're having weather wise, we're set to break all of our previous records. The temperature was 43 deg C yesterday, 44 today and they predict 43 for tomorrow. 44 deg C is 111 F. We have a cool change to look forward to on Saturday, it's only going to be 35 ha, ha, ha.
I live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, but, unfortunately it's also one of the most bush fire prone parts too. So I've been taking my 'special' things to work with me each day. Things that couldn't be replaced if the house burnt down.
It's amazing when you stop and actually have to choose what you would take. I took my external hard drives from my computer, they have all of my photos. I've taken drawings that my children and grand children did. My very old jewellery tools. Some of the jewellery I've made and a very special necklace given to me by Nina and one Jen made for me. My hand made journals and a very special one made for me by Judy and altered books.
Nothing practical, no undies or clothes. No food. Just the essentials, I couldn't possibly live without my jewellery or journals.
We just hope now that we can survive another few days. I was here during Ash Wednesday in 1983, it was one of Australia's worst fires ever, 79 people died in Victoria. We were surrounded by fire, it's a day I'll never forget.
Anyway I'm still doing art, only guess what, all of my photos are on my external hard drive that's packed up by the front door, ready to take to work tomorrow. This is the first post I've written and never had any photos, I'll have to make up for it over the weekend.
