A Morning At The Park

Cricket At The Park

Saturday 5 January 2008 – 11.40 am

~ A Morning at the Park ~

Weather: blue sky, stinking hot, forecast 34 degrees C… oops… no… (make that) 37 degrees C (98.6 degrees Fahrenheit*).

I’m sitting under a gum tree.

The kids are playing on the playground.

Cricket practice is on at the oval.

The traffic is pumping out pollution.

Sad For The Whales

Friday 4 January 2008 – 2.30 pm

Thinking about whales. Maybe it’s because they’re being slaughtered in our oceans. Or because I’m reading Moby Dick. How sad they are subjected to such cruelties.

Gothic Vampire Theatre

Vampire Musical

A day at the theatre… How emotive! How moving! ~ It makes me wonder about some Gothic romance set in a dark forest. Maybe I should write that as a play. It would probably involve a vampire in the main characters.

Chinese Restaurant

Saturday 29 December 2007 – 7.17 pm

Sitting in the car in a car park while the husband is ordering Chinese takeaway. Stinking hot summer day. So very, very hot. There’s heaps of people around, shopping for take away. Whinging kids complaining about hot chips. Others lurking around the sushi shop. The pizza shop is shut… Church was quiet tonight. Must be Christmas week.

My plans for a quiet evening are thwarted when the spiders attack…
