It has officially been hot, hot and dry. Hot and dry, relieved only by rain yesterday, or in Perth's case, the day before when there was a small flood. It was enough to lower the overall temperature and we have had a good night or two's sleep. Before then I was sleeping on, or under, a wet wrung out sheet. That worked too. Probably hideously unhealthy but it was too hot otherwise. We have officially had record long stretches of high temperatures. But there were puddles, and Harki made the most of one at the dam.
Consequently there has been no knitting or sewing or anything really. We have lain about like beached whales in front of Mr Cooly. Except when Peri and Lorelai Gilmore ran about like Barbarians while I was out and knocked Mr Cooly over and the water went all over the carpet and I had to use my tiny screwdriver kit to attempt repairs. Of course Peri has been hot, but not too hot to sunbake. She lies in the Sun and only comes in when she's way too hot. Hot and sleepy. I love her curled pink tongue!!!
As of today we are in Election mode. I cannot talk about the Election because our Electoral Office seems to have interpreted the rules in such a way that in order to comment, bloggers must declare their full name and address, otherwise you can be prosecuted. That's not going to happen so I must, perforce, not comment until March 21st. Lorelai Gilmore comments about when we will be getting there when she is in the car on her way to her walk. She makes little quivering sounds of excitement and looks all about. Her ears look strange.
Wee Jock has a new little sister: Bessie. I think it is so nice of her parents to name her after Doctor Who's car!! I have popped along to their house, which is about one minute away, twice, to make sure Wee Jock and Bessie are getting along well. And they are!!! Bessie has grown, she's so much bigger today than last week. I can't take a photo because I left my camera at MrsDrWho's house. Too much Press Gang excitement!!
Biscuit update: MrsDrWho reports that the Monday Munchies #6 Giant Choc-Chip biscuits are as crisp and tasty today as they were last Friday. She's kept them in an airtight container and they are good as new.
Lorelai Gilmore is getting a bit uppity so there will have to be some rigorous enforcement of rules. It is really hard to take a photo with all three Labradors. Even harder when I don't have my camera. Luckily I had downloaded one hundred and five photos on Tuesday!!
Cooler temperatures are forecast and I hope to make some headway with covering Otto and finishing my Stargate cardigan. It is two years old and bordering on the ridiculous when it just needs the fronts finished and then sewing together. I must update my OPAM sticky post anon!!!
