One week ago we were struggling with temperatures above 40°C, dust and dry dams. Fast forward one week and we have now received 60mm of rain. For now, the temperature has dropped and the dust has been washed off the trees, grass, animals and humans alike. Our dams are yet to fill but we are grateful for damp soil.
Although it might not look like it, this water is part of an intermittent creek system that flows through our property once every few years. This time the flow is slow, but the novelty of having fresh water meandering through the paddock never wears off.
This sweet little home was blown from a tree during the rain and I found it, freshly sprinkled with tiny rain drops.
In non-weather related news, I have met another blog friend in real life! Since my blogging journey began I have only managed to meet a handful of blogging friends face to face. This week I met Zara who generously gave me one of her handmade, vintage creations. Over lunch and a coffee we chatted about old buildings, honey, op shops, moving house, bread making, Kitchen Aid attachments, Saltwater sandals and everything in between. Slowly but surely blogging really does create some amazing connections.
How is life at your place?
Is it raining?
Have you met a new friend?
Wishing you a lovely weekend x
