Here we are again, Sunday morning…time for the weekly catch-up.
Okay, since we last spoke the lockdown in South East Queensland has been extended by a few days but will be ending at 4pm this afternoon. The state of Victoria has also been locked down again, and Sydney, well, the numbers are still growing down there. It’s hard to know what to say to Sydney-siders – everything seems like such a platitude.
As I mentioned last week, the SE Queensland lockdown came as such a surprise. I was already here in Hervey Bay, a few hours up the coast (where we’re not in lockdown) so have decided to stay for another week with my daughter. I’m very lucky I can do my day job from anywhere. I’m missing home (and husband and pooch) but if I’m going to be stranded anywhere, here would certainly be at the the top of my list.
My early morning walks continue, although the views are different…
I caught a quick sunset cruise after work on Wednesday night. I’ll tell you more about it another time, but it was a lovely way to end the day.
There was a fire in the canefields out of town – adding some drama to the evening skies…
…and I was still home in time to cook dinner and for us to eat it virtually with hubby. (Dinner was oven-roasted salmon with crushed potatoes and a bacon and spring onion dressing.)
Hervey Bay is known as one of the best places in the world to watch whales. It even has a UNESCO listing because of it.
I’ll tell you more about this another time too (trust me, it deserves it’s own post), but for now, here’s another pic to keep you going until then.
A secret project
I’m collaborating with my friend Debbish on a new top-secret project, so we spent Friday in an on-site off-site planning session with butcher’s paper and markers and post-its. She suggested we do team building exercises, but we both decided that was just a step too far.
Brekky in the sun
This mushrooms on vegemite and cream cheese toast with a perfect (soft) boiled egg. The scraping of vegemite gave it a real umami boost.
Lunch in the sun
This takeaway Thai fishcake salad bowl from Hervey Bay General Store was a fabulous workday lunchtime treat. (Ignore the badly chipped nail polish.) And I got some steps up in walking there and back.
Okay, that was my week! How was yours?
