It’s cold today but at least I have the comfort of a nice house . . . although I think this place is only used as a weekend getaway. Brrrr…
Along with the overcast conditions, our USB Wireless internet is twice as temperamental. I don’t know why because it seems to be okay at night. Right now I’ve had to sit outside to get a connection and post today’s photo 😦
But before I came outside I lit the fire so I am sure it will be lovely and cosy when I go back inside 🙂
As the weather cools, especially the nights, there’s a hint of smoke in the air most afternoons . . . and we’ve noticed several property owners clearing and burning. We passed this one, close to the roadside, on the weekend.
Interestingly, as I was preparing to upload this photo, the man on the property next door has just put a match to a big pile of debris and there’s a huge blaze out my window. All safe, as he’s cleared all around it 🙂
NaNoWriMo Update: (Drum roll please!) Last night I reached 30, 145 🙂 well over target, in fact I’m now a day in front and hoping to keep it that way. I had a huge scare this morning when I turned on my computer and for a long while thought it might have crashed but eventually it’s working again 🙂 I did have every one of those 30,145 words backed up and all but one day’s work on PW, which was comforting but this much appreciated, well overworked machine really needs to keep going just a little longer. . .
