February? Gone already!
February is such a tease of a month…
School/kinder goes back and holiday mode is quickly sucked up by the million and one things you try to cram into your week, but the weather is still hot, and that blue water of the local swimming pool calls your name every time you rush past it.
Stuff grows in the garden, but only if you remember to water it, and only if you are lucky enough to have a water supply to do that. Zucchini is back on the menu and finally tomatoes and cucumbers are ready to eat and you can boast about making salad for dinner entirely form your own garden and feel the joy that is giving away food you have grown.
While the veggie garden is green and productive the grass in the paddock is brown and bone dry. We count the number of trees we have lost in the crazy heat and worry about the threat of fires. We strain to hear weather reports over the child, to listen to fire warnings, and we wonder if it will rain before we run out of water.
You make it through the vomit illness from hell unscathed (yes I goaded the poo Gods and won!) and then just when you think you are really getting your February groove on… poof it is gone! A short tease of a month, but not such a bad way to get back into the swing of the year.
Oh and I know it is Weekly Winners day today… but I used all my best shots in the post about My Boy so I’ll just leave you with this one last shot… especially for Tiff who’s comment on my last post – “Love me some Muski” … made me smile.
