Last day of autumn and it's freezing

Another gorgeous vase to gaze at.  The flowers are not in the glass but on the surface and I think the birds might be too. I couldn't find it in the files because I had it under 'blue' when it should have been blackberries.

Last day of our not autumn. Now on to winter.  The cat and I just sat in front of the heater until the house warmed up for breakfast. It's very unusual for the cat not to bolt for the brekkie dish but he didn't move. The heater is set for 24 but this morning it was 6. Every creaking bone did it's best to break the pain barrier so I joined the cat in meditation.

We're in lockdown again so our Crime Minister has left to visit New Zealand leaving the Cabinet to stuff everything up again. All care home staff were first in line for vaccination but it only took one to infect this care home and probably another since once again they are having to work two jobs to make enough money to live. We've had another anti-vax protest on Melbourne streets which is confusing to me because it's not compulsary.  I did hear through the shouting, the same old rubbish published on facebook, the exact words I've read too many times. How ridiculous to yell at a passerby, "It's a lie! Have you seen anyone with Covid?" No, because I don't go near a Covid ward and no, because I don't see dead people. No more on that or I'll have the drum beaters turning up here.

My life has become more complicated when it should be simple so cleaning up is something I'm going to ignore. The cat agrees with me but only as long as that doesn't include not opening his food cans.

Now this will not be my last word on this subject. RUBY PRINCESS, the plague ship that sailed into Sydney. Instead of people blaming everything and everybody, let's remember who let passengers off this ship with no quarantine.

I'm going back to the heater, I'm cold inside and out.

I'm taking some time to get myself together.

 I could really sit and look at this dragonfly jug for a long time. Actually I could just sit and watch clouds. The fat lady is almost ready to sing and give up but there's a bit left in the tank. I just need time.

The space junk has landed north of the Maldives but I was hoping it would land on Morrison. Doc Marvin spent a lot of time arranging his vaccination times for his clinic, nursing home residents and the few that he visits (me in that group). The moment the Feds took over everything went to hell so I've had no flu vac or Covid.  It had to go covid-----flu-----2nd covid and it hasn't so I haven't left the house again.  Well nearly, I almost did a header out of the back door again. Now I'm not trying it again, I go out the front door, put the bins out and come in the back door.  Don't ask, it just works.

Budget next week, look for flying pigs.
