Just learning some bits and pieces on the new camera.
A very warm doggie laying in the sun... It was pretty hot but then he's old so the heat probably fixes up a few things....


We have a spare paddock next door and the neighbours out their cattle in there sometimes... today they were not interested in eating that much, just resting in the shade of the paper bark trees near the dam.

No matter the things we have to go through, things outside our small sphere go on in their own way despite us - thankfully.

And then after all this lovely heat (not too hot - just balmy - ) the power went down. We have a big generator but I was a bit scared of using it...Don used to guide me through the steps so that the house had lights and for him in one room air conditioning...he would get sick without it... I had let the battery run down and so finally with the storms of summer coming up decided to recharge it the other day...like a good girl scout I was prepared...and it went like a dream...

I am soooo chuffed with myself... but I learnt at the feet of the master I guess...

Oh, that dog is a beaut, I could just see myself going over and putting my head on it's tum and lapping up the sun too!!

I was thinking the other day, it must be a hard thing adapting to the lack of company. I find myself in a spin if Blair is gone for a couple of days. Before we hooked up I was a very independent single mother and managed fine but now I hate the insecurity of having him gone.

I suppose we adapt to our surroundings.
