Many, many apologies for my absence. Once you get out of the habit of blogging, it's easy to let things slide.
So what's been going on here? There was some really hot weather. And then some really wet weather. And now we're back into the hot weather. Council have started work on a bridge to replace the causeway that TC Tasha washed away on Christmas Day. Someone's cattle wandered onto the road. And Bob Katter visited the bakery. Yeah...that's about it. Small towns, eh?
Cyclone season starts on Tuesday, as does NaNoWriMo. I will be stocking the pantry in anticipation of both those events. Alcohol might be involved at some stage. Most stages, probably.
Plenty of wildlife around at the moment, although most of it seems to be brush turkeys. (Seven of them in the garden last week.) Blue quandong, Millaa Millaa vine and other plants are in fruit at the moment, so the canopy is bustling with wompoo pigeons, brown cuckoo-doves and tooth-billed bowerbirds. And Crinkle Cut, one of the red-legged pademelons, has another joey.
