Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

I hate the heat

Does God make mistakes? I know He doesn't, but hmm - it sure seems He has made a big boo-boo -putting me here in the heat. 'beam me down Scotty?' I was beamed to the wrong place. I HATE THE HEAT

just to let you all know that today is the 3rd day in a row that has reached mid to high 30's *that is the high 90's for the ladies in US* it is unbearably hot & I blame anyone who is near me for the heat. And more to come ! sometimes it reaches around 115 here ! that is just not normal !
I am not a nice person to be around when it is hot * I whine and complain and am generally an awful person. so sorry to all those readers who thought I was nice - it's summer and I'm not. *oh did I tell you I HATE THE HEAT?

Robyn you poor thing ~ seriously though, I heard today that Sydney had a top of 39 degrees yesterday!!! Oh my goodness, how unbearable...I must admit that i've had my fair share of the heat too, coming from way up North...I've really enjoyed my first winter and to experience a whole four seasons (instead of just the Dry Season and the Wet Season), has been so wonderful...I love the cooler weather.

Oh lordy, I hear ya! It's driving me mad - I feel lazy and lethargic and just generally short tempered. Our house is like an oven and my dear Benny doesn't seem to think we 'need' an airconditioner (I'm going to start begging tonight!). I'm just so unproductive when it's like this and I loathe it.

Oh please please please send it here to us kiwis, the highest we've gotten so far is 25deg today and it was cloudy. I love the heat, the hotter the better, I'd be happy in the desert actually. Send it here - I'd love it!

OMG is that hot poor you! I really feel with you Robyn, because I also couldn't bear it, that is just too hot! And yes Shell I'm unproductive too in such a heat, luckily it's not often that hot in Germany. Ha ha the seasonal swap of states would indeed be a good thing for you Robyn.

Wow, you are really copping it up there, Robyn. I don't blame you for being miserable - I would too. I am dreading the onset of summer down here; it can't be far away if things are so hot 500 miles north of us! Summer has been quite pleasant in Melbourne so far - wet, but that's okay!

I wouldn't mind having a little of heat. It's 9 degree here(US), about 22 degrees below freezing. (I don't know how to figure it out for you guys but I'm guessing something around -60 degrees) and tonight we are getting 4-6" of snow.

hehe, I think you need to move to England! Far more temperate here :-D

I'm not really keen on the heat either...around 72F is good for me.
It's been really cold here so a little heat doesn't sound too bad right now. We've had the soap stone in the bed at night...

I hate the heat too, all summer I dream of winter days...

Too much heat makes us all miserable I think. Hope you get a cooler spell soon. At least no fuel bills....it is cold here...just around 30 or alittle under. The weather folk are calling for lots of snow this evening. We are keeping our wood-burner busy, with a nice hot fire. You have my sympathy about your weather. One extreme is just as bad as the other for comfort. Thankfully God won't allow it to go beyond its season....is that a help? Didn't think so *smile*.

Gina l - you really must be a bit chilly over there. 9degF equates to -13degC How about you and Ms Robyn mixing the weather and you should both come out with something you like?

I agree with you, Robyn, I dislike really hot weather, too - I think a summer of mid 20s (mid 70sF) would suit me fine, although it wouldn't do the vegies much good.

Poor Dear! I cannot imagine a hot Christmas! Do you have AC? If so, turn it down, pour a glass of iced tea, and just *chill*.
It is winter here, of course, and right now, we are having sleet and snow and freezing rain. Makes it festive but I don't dare drive in it since I live in the hills. I just cooked a big pot of chicken and dumplings, lit the fireplace and snuggled in. Wish you were here.........

sleeting here tonight but I don't mind. I love cold winter weather! Its 29 degrees here right now and tomorrow is suppose to be 34. Wish we were getting snow... soon I hope. The fire is nice and toasty and my kettle is on for hot tea, time to rest and enjoy the evening.

Somewhere along the line I got the idea you just don't like the heat!

I am so sorry. It must be awful. I myself would not even like it that hot. We had 2 1/2 inches of snow today where I live and I could use a little warmth.

Hope the temperatures cool down soon for you! Until then it is okay to be a little crabby.

oh I hear you! I can't stand the heat, give me the cold any day. It was a humid 35 here in the sunshine state yesterday, but thankfully I have an airconditioned house and don't have to step outside! - yeah!!
