Happy Homemaker Monday

Today I am linking up with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom, for Happy Homemaker Monday.

We had a top of 27 degrees today, which, for winter, is unusually hot. The coming week the temperatures are going to fluctuate between 24 and 18 degrees. The really hard part is that we have not had a proper winter this year. It hasn’t been cold, there has been no rain, our bird bath hasn’t once iced over. I know some of you may think that sounds wonderful, but living in the desert where summer reaches 45 degrees Celsius regularly, no winter is hard. It makes summer even longer, bushfires worse, and the storms more damaging.

    Congrats to your son for his award on the stop motion film. Very neat! And great pictures. I wish I could send you some of our summer rains, we’ve had a bit too much of it. Hope you are having a wonderful week!

    Sorry to hear your winter is going so poorly. I’m a cold weather girl so can seriously appreciate the need for the winter months to balance the summer ones. Congratulations to your son on his award – sounds like a creative guy! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend.
