It's beginning to look a lot like summer

While I haven't seen the obligatory dead snake, we did narrowly avoid a red-bellied black as it was crossing a road, so I'm going to count it. Deadly though they may be, I cringe at killing out shy and venomous retiring wildlife. And it's summer. There's pretty much part of Australia on fire every day.

I have the AC on in the computer room and I'm not wearing much more than my cotton nightshirt... and I'm sweltering. And it's only halfway 8AM so yeah. My plans are to estivate1 the worst of it away.

Hell, I'm only up now because I couldn't sleep any more.

Today's pln is to get some stuff I can store, now that we've obtained all the presents we dast. Just laying in supplies. No big deal. A brick each of some of our fave diet drinks, and then it's home again to nap the heat of the day away.

But first - I need to get today's Instant done and schedule the next batch of Blasts From my Past.

And for that, I should really stop reading comments on my stories for five consecutive minutes.

It's a struggle. It's a real struggle.

  1. Summer's answer to hibernation. Sleep through the worst of the heat.
