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..........

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.

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

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:-)

Kris said...

Stay cool Chookyblue. Life is hard in suburbia with temps like that, hope it all goes well for you on the farm. Thinking of you!!! (Gosh I love Melbourne weather. We have had the heat, but very little of it.)

Cardygirl said...

Stay safe dear friend...hope the forecasts are wrong!

Jan said...

Keep safe and as cool as you can, Chooky. We had a few horrible days last week here in Ballarat - I HATE hot weather - the weekend has been great but it's hotting up again next week. Bah humbug!

Julia said...

Stay cool, keep safe.
It rained here today..what a relief, crazy weather!

Susan said...

Hang in there....it can't go on forever. X

Cath said...

oh wow....terrible times ahead. We have been waiting for the rains in Brisbane but I feel so selfish now complaining about the 30 or so degree heat. Hope we hear you shouting "The rains are 'ere" soon!

Yvonne W said...

Nature can be severe at times. Hoping for cooler weather your way and some rain too. Take care.

Susan said...

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.

AnitaS said...

I hope that the weatherconditions will be better soon. I will miss you on the blog.

Roseanne said...

I hope you can stay cool sit in the bath tub LOL My DH is Fighting fire here in Tassie.

Kate said...

I hope you find somewhere cool and all the animals do too.

Maria said...

I can relate to what you are saying Chooky. Hot over in the West too.

Jenny said...

I don't have anything to say except ..hugs ... Chooky.

Praying for cool breezes and some rain for you. Hopefully your animals will be ok in the hot heat you are experiencing.

I'm praying for rain for you Chooky, hope you can manage to find a cool enough spot to ride out the heat wave.
Hugs

Lorraine said...

Hope you manage to keep cool....stay safe.....thinking of you! (which of course does nothing to help with receding dams and heat - but you know we all love you!)

Leanne said...

Take care my friend, it is heart breaking when you loose garden because of the heat. Hope the weather breaks soon.

Cheryl said...

Sending cool thoughts your way...ugh, that is a hard forecast to look at!

Lynda said...

That weather will wear you out in no time - we are expecting 40+ tomorrow. That's a bit drastic for the Gong.

Fairy Floss Stitches said...

Not Good!.. Chin Up....thinking of you..and crossing my fingers for the rain ...(I could always try a rain dance...but that could be Very Scary!) Xx

SuziQ said...

You have really copped the heat waves this year - we are going for 43 tomorrow in Sydney.

Just to let you know your city friends are also thinking of you.

Take care, SuziQ

DAWNIE said...

Love your new header. Gee that is just so hot for you, hope it is not too unbearable

Cheryl said...

Been pretty warm in Victoria too - hope you manage to stay out of it as much as possible and that there are no fires near you

Anne Heidi said...

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!

Jodie said...

DAWNIE said...

Thinking of you with the extreme temperatures, hope all is ok.

Marilyn said...

That is a very toasty week. Thinking of your animals too, as they try to find shade.
My daughter lives at Goodooga and is finding this year rather trying with keeping 2 littlies happy and comfortable.
Rain would be wonderful.
Love your header pic.

Jenny said...

Hi Chooky, I've been watching tv in Iceland and I see that your forests are burning... I hope you are all alright, both humans and animals. Wish I could send you some of our cold breeze. Take care!!
