Here we are, in lockdown number 5 in Victoria. Covid has rated its ugly head again so once more we have been lying low and obeying the restrictions. The rule is that we can only go 5km away from home for exercise, so there’s not much that’s exciting about my walks and rides at the moment.
Actually, doing any outside exercise at all, has been quite difficult lately due to the dreadful weather we’ve been hit with. Every day for four weeks has been freezing cold, with rain on most of those days. The best I’ve been able to do lately, is short burts of exercise in between showers. I’ve had to be very careful when out walking, as the bush tracks and rocky paths are very wet and slippery at the moment.
I have no love of winter at all. I hate that I can’t get out into the garden, as I’m watching the weeds grow taller and taller. As I look at those weeds, growing very thick and high, I really have no idea how I’m ever going to be able to get them all pulled out. I’ve been locked up inside out of the rain, for days now. To find a positive, I’m actually fortunate that I have lots that I can do inside the house. Firstly there’s cleaning. Well surprise, surprise, I’ve done none of that. I’ve mainly spent my time on family history, researching and catching up with webinars that I’ve been trying to find time to view. There have also been zoom meetings, so I’ve had more than enough to do. More than anything, I just want to get outside in the sunshine on my bike, or be able to take Oscar walking in the bush.
I hope these photos show how cold and wet it’s been.
