What a week, our hottest on record. The temperature reached 45 deg C, 113 F on Friday. This created chaos everywhere, power black outs across the suburbs and in the city. Melbourne came to a stand still at one stage, no traffic lights, people stuck in lifts, no trains, air conditioners off, the city almost melted, in parts the bitumen did. As promised we received our cool change and only had to put up with 37 deg on Saturday. Today has been lovely, I think it reached 30 but haven't checked. The rest of the week is low thirties, which is much more pleasant. I hope they are right. There have been major fires to the east of our state, so far 29 homes have been lost, fortunately no loss of human life.
Thank you to everyone for your kind wishes and thoughts, it's nice to know there are people out there who care.
I hope that was the worst we get for summer, but February is usually our hottest month, so we're still a little apprehensive.
Global warming is certainly here.
We have lots of candles around the house that look like this now, just as well our power didn't go out.
They are certainly a talking point.
I managed to sit quietly over the weekend and work on my junk mail journal. I'm not sure what this page is about. It probaly reflects my jumbled state of mind at the time.
This is a background for something, I'm not sure what yet.
These two pages are from my decorated papers journal, I like to use these journals for my experiments, I'll probably add text later.
I also added some more fabric/button kits and two more stamps to my Etsy.
Thanks once again for your concerns, I'll try to reply by email or visiting your blogs. The blogging community is definitely a wonderful place.
