Today something very unusual happened. It rained in Mt.Isa! It has been so very dry here but there have been a couple of storms in the last three weeks or so which have been much appreciated by the locals I am sure.
I have been looking at the radar back home in SE Qld and it looks like it has been raining there too so I imagine my veggies, especially the cucumbers, will be growing prolifically so there will be some preserving to do when I get home.
The other day I saw this apparition on the screen door...fortunately it was on the outside.
Then there are the Gecko lizards. These do come inside and the locals are quite used to seeing them on their walls. They are reasonably small and the one in the photo was actually a baby one which had died and the girls found it upside down in the kitchen.
So tomorrow Nanna has to give Miss Six another knitting lesson and try and take some photos of the girls with the baby. Getting everyone to sit still at the same time will be a major achievement. Then I fly home the next day. Storms are predicted and I hope the flight won't be as bumpy as the flight up here as it was cloudy all the way and I felt quite nauseated by the time I arrived. It will take a while to get used to quietness again after living in a home with enthusiastic little children.
