When we get this weather everything struggles.....life is sucked out of everything including me..........things are looking terrible in the garden..........think I will lose some plants and some of the lawn is crispy fried...........the weather has been so dry for so long now.........things are giving up.........the poor stock are trying to find what ever shade they can all day............we haven't had a summer like this for awhile so with no end in sight at the moment i'll take a break...........when it cools down or rains i'll return............. 
dams which are getting low in water need to be checked for sheep stuck in mud........
also back to work too..........
try and stay cool..........

  1. I hope and pray the weather forecasts are wrong, and/or it breaks soon and you don't have to go through that stretch of hell.

    Will be thinking of you. Take care.

  2. We are certainly in for a hot week ahead.
    I got quite industrious today, cleaned out our bathroom cupboard, washed tablecloths and put away Christmas ones, completely put away all Christmas decorations and restored my mantlepiece to it's former, undusty glory (Yay!) and then I dead-headed my roses and weeded out the back garden. Pooped now as it has been hot and windy all day and we have smoke drifting in from a Victorian bushfire near Nelson. Smelling smoke on the air in not nice!

    I hope your area is free from fire outbreaks and that you can stay cool in this wicked heat.

    Cheers - Joolz

  3. Yes,nature has its own way of stirring things up! Praying for you so rain will set in soon. Meantime hope you don`t have water-restrictions at your end so all animals survive. All the best for a change of weather soon:-)

  15. Sounds awful - got to feel sorry for the animals too - they can't get into the air conditioning. I think most of eastern Australia needs rain and a drop in temperature.

  37. Oh wow, I really hope it cools down soon and you get some rain! We don't even get your minimum temperatures here for more than maybe a couple of days in the summer (I am dreaming of a summer without 12-15C and rain....)
    But 42 is just waaaayyyyyy too hot!
