My Sarah is home from school for today with the croup. She does not mind missing a day of school today.. that is because she is keeping my Mia company... Mia has an ear infection. Poor little thing, I had one a few weeks back and I pity her when she gets upset. Painful buggers!
Our vegetable garden has started providing us with some lovely broccoli. It beats the supermarket broccoli hands down. So yummy. The Snow Peas are also lovely to eat, and the cos lettuces are so crisp and green.. I cannot wait for the tomato plants to produce umpteen kilos of the red juicy fruits.
Tomas represented his High School in athletics at Aberfeldie Park yesterday. He came second in the one hundred meter race and third in the javelin contest. I am so proud of him.
I guess everyone knows about the floods in Victoria by now. Mother nature showing us her sheer force. The Aboriginal Elders predicted the drought would break in this manner this very year. Maybe the Bureau of Meteorology ought to listen to them..and learn from them too. How did they know? Simple, they said when the kangaroos begin breeding again that is when the drought would break..because they do not reproduce if there is not enough water to sustain their mob. Also, generation to generation, of story telling tells them of the weather patterns. There is much to learn from our Elders.
No Prime Minister yet here in Australia... does anyone care really anymore? I think they all need a good kick up the behind myself.. nuff said, lol
