A Soggy Summer Solstice

In my blog-hopping I have seen tranquil pictures of snow covered fields, trees and houses all white calm and silent.
Here in Queensland it should be hot with the sun shining and a thunderstorm or two to cool things down and keep us on our toes.
Instead we have rain, rain and still more rain.
The creek is up and we are flooded in.
Our plans to travel to our son's for Christmas have been washed away in the swift flowing brown water and it would seem that Jupiter Pluvius has not finished with us yet. Forecast to the end of the year a possible further 300mm.
Such is life in the land of droughts and flooding rains.

Would like to wish everyone a safe and merry Christmas or Summer or Winter Solstice as the case may be. May your day be filled with peace, good food and good times with all the people you love.

Oh and Santa, if you're planning to call on us, I suggest you swap the reindeer and sleigh for an inflatable flood boat with a couple BIG outboards on the back and watch out for the crocs!


  1. Wishing you a blessed Christmas, Greer and hoping that the floods will go down soon. Take care!

  2. Have a wonderful Christmas and try and stay dry. Send some of that rain our way, we could sure use it.

  3. Merry Christmas Greer - I hope the rain stays away and that all is peaceful for you both. All the best, Vicki :)

  4. Take care Greer and Jim, all the best for you 2 .

  5. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. With all that's been going on in our move, I haven't been able to play with my clay and beads and have not been able blog much. But I hope all that will change soon.
    Hope the rains slow down and wish you a happy new year.
