Normal service resumed!

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.

Welcome back. Your area sounds amazing, while all that we have to look forward to is cold and snow for the next few months. Looking forward to more posts!

Welcome back, Snail.
We all agree it is a nice image to start up with.

Hi, everyone!

This little joey is probably the cutest yet. (And that's a big call!)

Good to see your cyberface again!! What's your the novel going to be about? Fiction, Non-Fiction?
...So I guess we will see you again the 1st of December, after the novel is finished? LOL-please take that in the humor in which it was intended!!!

Snail said...

It's not really a novel --- it's a non-fiction long work that I need to get out of the way before Christmas. I figure that the 'No' is as loose as the 'Nat' bit of the monicker.

I'll try to keep up with the posting! I've got some brush turkey pics that need to be shared.

I was going to say "Welcome Back" but that's been done so well already, so "get into it" will have to do.

Snail said...

I will!
