This weeks hostess is Pamela, and here's what she wants us to do.
The subject: Show me in pictures or tell me in words what defines the place where you live.
This is the view from the front door, (well a few steps outside the front door actually) this is a temporary residence in Adelaide South Australia not my home in Gympie Queensland.
I am living here as support staff for my Daughter who is having some medical problems and is undergoing treatment here in Adelaide, Vicki normally lives at the small rural town of Wudinna which is a 6 hour drive from here, she is married to a grain farmer and the busy life on the farm would not let them both be away at the same time for the 6 to 12 months that her treatment may take.
As some of you will already know, I am single and retired so I was able to (and pleased to) become her carer at least until her health improves to the stage where we are all certain she can manage on her own.
All of that is to explain why I have this very pleasant outlook from my place of abode, Vicki and Rex have a unit here in town for family use so we are using this, it is located in a very nice suburban setting adjacent to an ornamental lake (two lakes actually) which is very popular with birdlife and people who enjoy walking and exercising their dogs on the paths that meander around the lakes.
I now must confess that my mind is not really on this post and I apologize for this, the southern half of Australia has been undergoing a severe drought for the last few years and more recently a severe heat wave (we are in the middle of our summer here), this has led to some really horrific bushfires particularly in the adjoining state of Victoria.
There has been a huge loss of life in these fires, possibly as many as 100 people, and my mind is distracted by the horror of this... I will post photos and some detail probably tomorrow if you would like to come back and see the sad details.
Please visit some of the Fun Monday sites and have a "Fun Monday"
