The days are dark and gloomy with heavy clouds hanging low over our heads and thunder rumbling quietly in the distance. The rain comes and goes, sometimes teeming and sometimes lightly floating.
Compared to a lot of places in Queensland, we've been lucky. Towns in the outback and others down south have had between 100 - 200 ml of rain and there has been a lot of flooding and damage. Luckily, not as devastating as last year, but still terrible for some people.
Needless to say, my routine was severely hampered this morning. I had enough time to get my coffee from the bakery and spend about fifteen minutes with my boys at the Seat of Knowledge before the heavens opened up AGAIN.
I pedalled home in the rain and I was pretty damp by the time I pulled into our driveway!
We spent a little time doing some housework early today ... and I mean a little, because we only do the bare essentials lol.
On the plus side ... we've had the Australian Open Tennis AND the India v Australia Test Cricket being televised live on free-to-air tv, so we've switched between channels watching both all day.
There was a short break in the rain, so I was able to go outside with my camera and get a shot for my 104 Things to Photograph in 404 days challenge.

A couple of shots of my little Sweetie Possum sent to me by Vegan Chickie ...
What a lovely mess ... that I don't have to clean up, but how gorgeous is that! Having a wonderful time! I think we need to find a big rubber sheet for her to have her messy play on ... just makes it easier to clean up afterwards and lots of fun can still be had!
Back to the tennis for me now.
