A Rock with a View

It was hot yesterday--up in the mid-thirties and there's a month to go until it's officially summer.

Problem: what to do on a lazy, hot Sunday afternoon. Solution: sit on a riverbank with a cold drink, a good friend and a drop spindle. We spent the afternoon at Warrandyte, on the upper reaches of the Yarra River. It was still hot, but much more pleasant than sitting at home. There was a nice flat rock to sit on and a bit of a breeze off the water. I rounded off the day by sharing fish and chips with the ducks.
It's going to be hot again today, but I can't escape to Warrandyte, I have a couple of appointments to keep. In between I might take my knitting to the library--it's air conditioned at least.
