I hate to harp on in my weekly (kinda, sorta
) weather reports here at the Bush Babe blog… but have I mentioned its a bit hot
? Uncomfortably, sweatily, ruddy-faced hot. Make-up sliding right off your face and onto the floor hot. Skin sizzling hot. Yearning for snow kinda hot. Have I mentioned it? Oh… I have? Right then.
Moving right along.
Would you like to see a snap from our recent weekend away to the gorgeous Darling Downs region? Here’s one I snapped from the car window as we headed home – sorry you are not getting the elegant expanses of Toowoomba’s amazing fig-tree lined Margaret Street. Or the lush gardens throughout this great town/city. Or the shakin’ down nightlife we discovered there. No. THIS is what I give you… mirages.
Outback maths: Flat open expanses plus heat equals shimmering horizons.
Kinda groovy really.
I messed with it a little: this is with Pioneer Woman’s Soft & Faded
Now with PW’s Fresh & Colorful
(not sure you can make a mirage ‘fresh’ but I tried!)
And with a textured action I discovered somewhere called Vintage.
A bit ‘worked’ maybe?
I actually don’t mind this… looks like something my grandmother might have seen about 80 years ago. If her eyesight had been dodgy when she was about 20.
But you know what I mean…
What is your favourite version?
And while you are in the comments section (you know you want to) can anyone out there beat our forecast maximum of 38 degrees Celsius (minimum of 19 degrees?).
And while we are all competitive, who can go the lowest?
I NEED to read about something other than extreme sunburn here people… because according to our weather bureau the thermometre will plummet with showers (of less than one mm) to a chilly 34 degrees on Monday.
Can’t. hardly. wait.
