It’s summertime here in the central tablelands of New South Wales, Australia, and it’s 35c in the shade on our back veranda. It’s a full time job keeping the animals cool. We have 10 beautiful ferrets, hand raised and very friendly. They feel the heat and can suffer from stress very quickly in high temperature. We cover their outdoor cages with rugs which we keep damping down during the day., and if we feel the need, we bring them into their indoor cages which are in our laundry, and cover their cages with wet towels. I then give each cage an esky ice -block or bottle of frozen water, and they will rest their heads on these or lie next to them to keep cool.
We also have a dog called Wombat, and some silky chickens. Wombat lives indoors and pretty much controls my husband and I. He owns the couch and frowns heavily on anyone who tries to share it.
Today is a big day for me, my ebook Poems from the Heart is being launched by Kindle Direct Publishing. It is a selection of poetry written by me over thirty odd years or so and it is in many respects a personal journey. I’m sure that anyone who has ever been in love, or has loved and lost, will be able to identify with the sentiments expressed within those pages.
I’m a newcomer to WordPress, and at present on the ‘free’ list, as I want to see if blogging is really for me or not. If I feel comfortable with the process I will update to prime at a later date. I’m really looking forward to the return of ‘The Daily Post’ Community Pool.
