The weather has been hot hot hot! The garden is struggling. The chooks are struggling. They often sit in the nesting boxes but don't they. It's like they want to but it requires to much energy and it's too hot to exert any energy. The lemons are coming along nicely, we have managed to keep the water up this summer after we nearly lost the tree 2 years ago. The passionfruit continue to ripen daily.

I found these photos on my camera that the girls' had taken. They are constantly taking pics and using the cat and chickens in their photo shoots. I'm sure the cat will be pleased when school goes back! I will miss them though, I will miss the sleep-in's, the lazy afternoons (I have kept working through, but usually home by 2pm) and late nights. I will miss their cupcakes. I will even miss their mess.

We met up with friends at the river today to celebrate Australia Day! They had a couple of canoes, so the girls loved all going out in them. There were lots of people about and lots of boats to watch on the river. We all came home dirty, tired and happy.
