It’s heatwave time again in Brisbane and the rest of Queensland for that matter! 36c today and super humid, it might as well be the tropics! Our old Queenslander style house isn’t really ideal for this weather, it ends up being hotter inside by the afternoon than it is outside! So I’m really thanking the guy who invented air conditioning (Willis Carrier) this week!
Everything thing is getting put on the back burner, as much as it can be, while I hide out with the kids in the air con of our bedrooms. My office/studio is way too hot to sit in and do any creating so I’m giving myself over to the computer and the internet and getting on top of everything tech related. That means blog posts, Etsy updates, social media and so on. Which is not always my favourite thing but it’s time to embrace it!
I joined deviantart.com yesterday, for another place to share my art. There is just so much art on there! I’m finding it difficult to navigate and find things that I like, maybe I’m just fussy but there’s a lot that I don’t like. I enjoy trawling through Pinterest more. But persistence is key online. The web is such a gigantic place and I often find it overwhelming but nothing is gained from giving up.
Summertime is cicada time but it’s so hot even they’ve turned their volume down a bit lately. In the search for water this little guy flew into a bucket of dye from a custom order. He looks very blue but the colour was actually mermaids dream
If you’re in Queensland, what are you doing to keep cool? I’d love it if you left a comment xx
