I know that my Mother always taught me never to use the word hate, but this has to be an exception. Yesterday the temperature hit 43.5C (110F) and it was windy. We took refuge inside the house for the entire day, but even the air-conditioning struggled to keep the house cool. Bush fires sprang up all over the place, with one not too far from where we live, burning sheds, machinery and vehicles.
Thankfully a southerly change came through late last night dropping the temperature significantly and bringing a tiny amount of rain. We had about 15 minutes of rain, which wasn't much, but given that we haven't had rain for several weeks, it was welcome.
The good news is, as the house was air-conditioned all day, I was able to get a whole lot of stitching done. I finished my Lizzie Kate exchange and made an excellent start on my Prairie Schooler exchange. Unfortunately I can't show any photos yet, but it shouldn't be too long.
