It's a cat's life

As soon as it became June, the weather turned quite cold. It has started to rain ... a blessing in the current drought conditions. It has even rained in the catchment area of the dam that contributes to Sydney's water supply. It is even cold enough for snow in the mountains to the west of the city. Kosciusko National Park is getting snow two or three times a week now, which is great because the school ski trip is only three weeks away and we have about 120 girls signed up to go.

The down side of wintery weather is that I cannot get the washing dry. We have mountains of sheets and towels that won't dry. The undies and teeshirts go through the dryer, adding to the electricity bill.

Finally we found a gas plumber who was prepared to fix the terrible job that the last one did on installing our new gas heater. Using it during last winter put a layer of black dust all over the walls and ceilings, even upstairs. I have only recently found out that it wasn't burning the gas properly and we could have been gased to death! Well, now it is working properly (I hope). Meg, of course, gets prime position, on her new little sheepskin rug, right in front of the heater.

Oooh...cold weather! Its summer here in Fl and I could use some of your chilly weather believe it or not! Love your sketch of "Meg". She is certainly enjoying the warmth of your new heating system. My kitty, Oscar, is out on my porch so far this a.m. catching the early morning sun.
I have tried sketching him, and have a problem with ears it seems! lol.
Enjoy the winter and the ski trip sounds great, even tho I have never skied in my life, it sounds like fun. Elaine

Beautiful sketch. Assuming you have no space to stretch clotheslines out near heater. I am so spoiled now most everything is dryer and we are in hot hot weather. Hanging things outside subjects them to bird dropping's here. Plus I can't bend over to lift wet clothes from a basket.
