Too Hot to Write

It's spring here and usually that means warm, sunny days and plenty of visits to the beach before coming home to write some more.

Of course, Australia decided to really turn on the sun this week and by-pass spring completely. It's 110 degrees outside for the third day in a row and very likely to continue this way for the next week or so.

It's just too hot to sit in the office and write today. I have plenty of work to do and deadlines looming, but while I'm wilting in my chair, I have no chance of writing coherently today.

So I'm going to try and cool my poor dogs down any way I can without exposing us all to the burning rays of the sun for longer than a couple of minutes at a time. That's one of the best benefits of being self-employed - I'm taking the day off and I don't have to call in sick or make an excuse to anyone.

If this is spring, then summer promises to be a real scorcher : /
